A Stylish Look with More than a Hint of Power

The Ford Ranger hits the right balance of power and style, which for some truck buyers may be just the right mixture. Although the F-150 is the top-selling model among Ford trucks, many buyers find the slimmer body and smaller cab on the midsized 2020 Ford Ranger makes for a more appealing ride.

The 2020 Ford Ranger continues with previous years’ models in providing a curvier aesthetic to the body design than the full-sized F-150, all while offering lots of storage capacity in the box, and strength under the hood. The standard SuperCrew cab, for example, offers 43.3 cubic feet of storage capacity. If you need more storage, upgrade to the SuperCab box for 51.8 cubic feet of storage space.

Towing is also a primary feature of the 2020 Ford Ranger and built directly into the design of the vehicle. Two front towing hooks highlight the frontside undercarriage, while trailer towing is simple using the included 4-pin wiring and rear ball mount. The Ford Ranger can tow 7,500 pounds, which is easily comparable to a standard F-150 model.

Even with a sleeker design, the Ford Ranger offers a commanding presence and size. As such, all Ford Ranger models come with folding side mirrors to make better use of sometimes undersized parking spaces.

Whether you’re impressed with the design or the benefits of its more robust fuel economy, the 2020 Ford Ranger is a driver-friendly option for car buyers. Contact Coccia Ford of Wilkes-Barre to schedule your next test-drive.

The Defining Technological Difference

For many potential buyers, the question rests on how the 2020 Ford Ranger sets itself apart from the popular F-150. The single best answer is in the interior, and in particular, the far more advanced technological options that come standard with every current year Ford Ranger model.

When you explore the 2020 Ford Ranger at our Wilkes-Barre location, you’ll be able to experience firsthand the full range of driver-assist and automated safety technology that Ford includes within the Ford Co-Pilot360 suite.

There are six key tools in the package that make the Ford Ranger a stronger contender for your next vehicle purchase. These must-have features include:

  • Ford’s BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with class-exclusive trailer coverage
  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • A Lane-Keeping System
  • Unique Adaptive Cruise Control
  • A Wide-Angle Rear-View Camera
  • Convenient Auto High-Beam Headlamps

Ford’s Blind Spot Information System is one of the more interesting features that help distinguish the 2020 Ford Ranger among other midsize trucks. This system utilizes multiple radar sensors on the sides of your vehicle to detect cars hiding in your blind spot. Should a vehicle enter your blind spot, your Ford Ranger will signal a warning on your side mirror, as well as offer an audible tone.

Furthermore, unique to Ford’s midsize class vehicles (and not available in the full-sized F-150), the BLIS system extends beyond the range of many trailers or boats that meet the normal carrying capacity. This results in a warning activation even as cars enter into the range of your towed item.

You’ll also benefit significantly from the critical Pre-Collision and Lane-Keeping Systems. With the pre-collision technology, a forward-facing radar continuously scans the road ahead of you and warns of objects you’re approaching too quickly. Visual and audible warnings are provided, while your 2020 Ford Ranger will automatically brake in instances where a human reaction time might be too slow to avoid a collision.

Notably, the Pre-Collision function also plays a role in the Adaptive Cruise Control feature, which automatically adjusts your vehicle’s speed to help you keep a safe distance from vehicles in front of you.

The Lane-Keeping System employs the same detection software and hardware employed by the pre-collision technology to detect standard lane markings. Should your vehicle begin to drift from your lane without a turn signal engaged, the lane-keeping system will offer alerts without interfering with your steering.

Finally, Ford Ranger owners will also find value in the wide-angle Rear-View Camera, which can be used to avoid accidents while reversing, and the Auto High-Beam Headlamps, which will engage automatically based on light conditions, and even dim to avoid blinding oncoming drivers in opposing traffic lane.

A Complete Package of Safety and Security Features

The 2020 Ford Ranger provides drivers with industry-leading safety features. Buyers in the Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, and Philadelphia regions will benefit from both expected safety features, such as front, side, and canopy airbags, as well as uncommon features, like Ford’s SOS Post-Crash Alert System.

Among the safety and security features, you’ll find:

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • Child Seat Tether Anchors
  • Front-Wheel Anti-Lock Brakes
  • Child-Proof Rear Door Locks
  • Three-Point Active Restraint System (ARS) Safety Belts
  • A Passive Anti-Theft System

A Combination of Efficiency and Power

The standard 2.3 L EcoBoost engine that comes standard in every 2020 Ford Ranger is not only fuel efficient, but strong enough for the most hauling and towing needs. Offering an EPA-estimated 26 mpg highway, the 2020 Ford Ranger will take you from point to point with less need to stop to refuel, all while saving on fuel when compared to other midsize or full-sized trucks.

And while the 2.3 L EcoBoost engine is smaller than V6 and V8 models common in the F-150, it doesn’t suffer for it. The 310 lb-ft of torque and 270 horsepower ensure a towing capacity that’s just shy of the standard F-150, and higher than many competitor mid-sized trucks.
