The 2020 Ford Ranger continues to be one of America's favorite compact trucks. It first came back on the scene in 2019 since leaving us all heartbroken back in 2011. We don't anticipate many significant changes with the new 2020 Ranger model from the 2019 model aside from the rumors that a Ford Ranger Raptor will eventually make it to the States. Still, we have all the details you want on this 2020 Ranger, so you're ready when it arrives at Phil Long Ford of Chapel Hills in Colorado Springs.

2020 Ford Ranger Release Date

The 2020 Ford Ranger release date occurred in the latter half of 2019. Originally, we expected it to arrive around the same time that the 2019 Ford Ranger was released. We saw the 2019 Ranger release in early 2019, but we get to see the 2020 Ford Ranger release earlier than it's predecessor and it is just in time for the holidays. 

2020 Ford Ranger Price

Since we didn't expect many changes, it was safe to assume the 2020 Ford Ranger price would likely remain relative to the 2019 model. The 2019 Ford Ranger started at $24,300 and the 2020 Ford Ranger starts at $24,410 for the base XL trim. The 2020 Ford Ranger XLT starts at $28,460 while the 2020 Ford Ranger Lariat starts at $32,500.

Fuel Economy

We anticipated that the 2020 Ford Ranger gas mileage should remain the same as the previous production year as their engines remained the same. A 2020 Ford Ranger receives 21 city/26 hwy mpg with standard RWD. A 4WD 2020 Ford Ranger model gets 20 city/24 hwy mpg instead.

2020 Ford Ranger Trim Levels

The 2020 Ford Ranger will come in the same 3 trims: XL, XLT and Lariat. Standard features include a Wi-Fi hotspot plus pre-collision braking. There's also a package available on the standard model that adds many active safety features. If you upgrade to the mid-range XLT, you gain a touchscreen, satellite radio, power-adjustable heated front seats and a navigation system.

2020 Ford Ranger Towing Capacity

There are no major changes to the 2020 Ford Ranger towing capacity because the weight, drivetrain, and engine specs remained the same as 2019. The 2020 Ford Ranger has a maximum conventional tow rating of 7,500 lbs. when properly configured. 

2020 Ford Ranger Payload

The 2020 Ford Ranger payload reaches 2,080 lbs. depending on how it's equipped. To get the maximum payload, you need a 2020 Ford Ranger 4x2 without the pick up box. The 2020 Ford Ranger SuperCab 4x2 hauls 1,860 lbs.; the 2020 Ford Ranger SuperCab 4x4 hauls 1,650 lbs.; the 2020 Ford Ranger SuperCrew 4x2 hauls 1,770 lbs.; and the 2020 Ford Ranger SuperCrew 4x4 hauls 1,560 lbs.

2020 Ford Ranger Curb Weight

The base numbers didn't change for the 2020 Ford Ranger curb weight, the 2019 model sits at 3,922 to 4,441 pounds while the 2020 Ford Ranger weighs in at the same curb weight.

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating

The 2020 Ford Ranger gross weight didn't change from 2019. Right now, the 2019 Ford Ranger has a gross weight of 6,050 pounds and the 2020 Ford Ranger has the same GVWR. 

2020 Ford Ranger Engine & Transmission

The 2020 Ford Ranger transmission is a 10-speed automatic on all models. It's a smooth-shifting, highly reliable powertrain that helps this truck receive raving reviews. Furthermore, the sole engine in the 2020 Ford Ranger is a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder (2.3L Ti-VCT I-4) that pumps out 270 horsepower plus 310 lb-ft of torque. Rear-wheel-drive (RWD) comes standard, but four-wheel-drive (4WD) models are available.
