Ford Ranger Towing: Performance Specs

Every Ford Ranger pickup truck runs on a 2.3L EcoBoost® engine rated at 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. This power is delivered via a 10-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission to either a 4×2 or 4×4 system. EPA estimates max out at 21 mpg city and 26 mpg highway with the 4×2 system, meaning you’ll get the most out of every gallon of gas on the Naperville roads. Unlike the Ford Ranger towing capacity, this pickup’s payload ranges from 1,430 pounds to 1,860 pounds, depending on cab, bed size, drivetrain, and trim level.

The following features also influence Ford Ranger performance:

  • Trailer Towing – 4-pin wiring, ball mounting provisions in rear bumper
  • Trailer Sway Control
  • Electronic Power-Assist Steering (EPAS)
  • Electronic Shift-on-the-Fly (ESOF) with Neutral Towing Capability (4×4 only)
  • Auto Start-Stop Technology
  • Terrain Management System™ with selectable drive modes
  • Trail Control™ with Hill Descent Control™
  • Electronic-Locking Rear Differential
  • Monotube shock absorbers
  • Double A-arm independent front suspension
  • Available Ford Performance Parts Packages

Ford Ranger: Built Ford Tough®

The Built Ford Tough® badge is reserved for only the Ford models that conquer various grueling trials and challenges. For example, the Ranger towed heavy loads at steep grades in up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit. This test and others simply demonstrate that the new Ranger is more than capable of towing up to 7,500 pounds and tackling any obstacle head-on.

Ford Ranger Tremor Package

The Ford Ranger towing capacity isn’t this pickup’s only appealing quality. Yorkville-area drivers like you can venture off the beaten path with the all-new Tremor Package, which adds:

  • Magnetic-painted alloy wheels
  • Modified heavy-duty off-road suspension 
  • Front and rear tow hooks

This package is in addition to the available FX4 Off-Road Package, which installs all-terrain tires, skid plates, off-road monotube shocks, and more.
