Ford has announced that its 2019 Ford Ranger is the most fuel-efficient gas-powered midsize pickup in the U.S.

The all-new Ranger earned EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 21 mpg city, 26 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined for 4Ă—2 trucks. When configured as a 4Ă—4, Ranger returns EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 20 mpg city, 24 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined. This is the best-in-class EPA-estimated city fuel economy rating of any gasoline-powered four-wheel-drive midsize pickup and it is an unsurpassed EPA-estimated combined fuel economy rating.

“Midsize truck customers have been asking for a pickup that’s Built Ford Tough,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager. “And Ranger will deliver with durability, capability and fuel efficiency, while also providing in-city maneuverability and the freedom desired by many midsize pickup truck buyers to go off the grid.”

Ranger’s standard 270-hp 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine has been paired up with a 10-speed transmission which together produces 310 lb.-ft. of best-in-class torque among model year 2019 gas-powered midsize trucks.

The 2019 Ranger has also claimed the top spot for gas towing capacity at 7,500 pounds and best-in-class payload at 1,860 pounds.
