Engine, Power & Transmission:
All three trims get their power from a 2.3 liters, turbocharged, 4-cylinder engine that produces a maximum of 270 horsepower with a maximum 310 lb-ft of torque. The transmission it offers is a 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. The 2021 Ford Ranger features tuned suspension at the front and rear with monotube dampers for smoother ride quality.
Performance & Drive:
The 2.3 liters EcoBoost engine of Ford Ranger is paired with a turbocharger that maximizes responsiveness by supplying maximum pulse energy to the turbine wheel with no la. Its raw torque acts when you are powering up, delivering the best performances. It offers you rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive depending on the type of road condition. The rear-wheel-drive comes with a ground clearance of 8.4 inches, while the four-wheel-drive offers a ground clearance of 8.9 inches. The towing capacity and payload of the 2021 Ford Ranger is also improved as it can tow up to 7500 pounds now, and you can carry a load of up to 1860 pounds confidently on your trip. Now its 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission is quick and smooth, features quick shifting up and down of gears, 3-overdrive gears, reduced drag actions, and wide spacing gears. The monotube dampers in the suspension provide you higher damping forces when off-road conditions are unparalleled and provide lower damping forces when smoother road conditions. Thus, the tuned suspension is perfect for all types of road conditions, and it does not affect the comfort of the ride. The electronic-locking rear differential starts working for additional traction, and Terrain Management System offers four driving modes for your assistance. These driving modes include Normal, Grass/Snow/Gravel mode, Mud/Ruts mode, or Sand mode that can be chosen according to your road conditions and provides optimum traction for an amazing performance. The Ford Ranger fuel economy is not bad, giving you a 21 miles per gallon mileage in the city and 26 miles-per-gallon on the highways when rear-wheel-drive is selected. When selected, the four-wheel drive gives you a mileage of 20 miles-per-gallon in the city and 24 miles per gallon on the highways.
