The 2021 Ford Ranger is a popular compact pickup truck that offers high towing and hauling capacities, a range of potent engines, and a long list of standard and available features.

Drivers in Glasgow, Hopkinsville, Russellville, and Bowling Green can know more about the new Ranger by looking through this comprehensive 2021 Ford Ranger review by Greenwood Ford.

Ranger Engines and Performance

The Ranger's base engine is a 2.3-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that boasts 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. This engine pairs with a 10-speed automatic transmission that cycles power to either the rear wheels or all four wheels.

Despite its workhorse persona, the Ranger gives you a smooth, exciting driving experience. The truck tackles curves and turns with ease, and the fine-tuned suspension glides over road imperfections. For off-roading, the Ranger offers specialty trim levels and options packages that include features like skid plates, Terrain Management System™, special off-road tires, a trail suspension, and crawl control.

Depending on the configuration, the Ranger is rated to tow up to 7,500 pounds.

Ranger Cabin Space and Comfort

The Ranger comes available with an extended cab or crew cab. While both offer seating for four people, the crew cab is the best choice if you plan on having passengers often. Adults have plenty of space in the rear seat for long trips. Cloth upholstery is standard, but vinyl upholstery, leather upholstery, heated seats, and dual-zone automatic climate control are available.

The extended cab pairs with a 6-foot bed and the crew cab pairs with a 5-foot bed. Depending on the configuration, the Ranger has a payload capacity between 1,560 pounds and 1,860 pounds. Several features are available to enhance the cargo utility, such as a drop-in bed liner.

Ranger Technology and Safety

The Ranger offers an intuitive SYNC® 3 infotainment system with a responsive 8-inch touch screen as an optional feature. This popular system features touch inputs, physical knobs and buttons, and a simple layout that's easy to learn and use. A built-in Wi-Fi hot spot is standard, and navigation, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, HD radio, and satellite radio are optional. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration are also available, which lets you sync to the truck's onboard system to play music and access calls and texts.

The MyKey® system is standard for the Ranger, which permits you to set limits on the speed and sound volume to minimize distraction in young drivers. Forward-collision warning is also standard, which forewarns you of potential frontal collisions and automatically hits the brakes to minimize the impact. Automatic emergency braking and a rearview camera are also standard. Optional features include a rear cross-traffic alert with trailer coverage, a feature that alerts you to vehicles in your blind spot when reversing or changing lanes.
