2020 Ford Ranger Towing

2020 Ford Ranger Towing Capacity

Step up from the towing capabilities of an SUV with the Ford Ranger, a midsize pickup truck that can tow up to 7,500 pounds. Whereas the Ford F-150 full-size pickup and the Ford Super Duty heavy-duty pickup have the capacity to tow slightly more, the new Ranger's smaller package and competent handling make it an appealing choice for Cheektowaga-area drivers without compromising strength and utility. Keep in mind that the 2020 Ford Ranger towing capacity comes in conjunction with efficient performance and best-in-class payload of 1,860 pounds, too. Ready to learn more?

Ford Ranger Towing Capabilities and Features

The Ford Ranger towing capacity of 7,500 pounds is standard across the board, thanks to the 2.3L EcoBoost® engine that delivers 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. You won't always achieve the maximum 1,860-pound payload, though, as this varies based on whether you go with the 4x2 or 4x4 drive train, which cab you select, and the bed size you prefer. Look forward to an EPA-estimated 21 mpg city and 26 mpg highway, as well.

These performance specs and capabilities are bolstered by the following features:

  • Trailer towing - 4-pin wiring, ball mounting provisions in the rear bumper
  • Trailer Sway Control
  • Electronic Shift-on-the-Fly (ESOF) with Neutral Towing Capability (4x4 only)
  • Electronic Power-Assist Steering (EPAS) Electric Motor
  • Available Hill Descent Control™ within Trail Control™ system

Ford Ranger: Built Ford Tough®

Over the years, Ford has produced countless powerful trucks, and the Ford Ranger is no different. Like the others, the new Ranger bears the Built Ford Tough® badge, which serves as a symbol of all that it is capable of in the Lancaster area. In fact, the Ranger endured several grueling tests to earn the Built Ford Tough® badge, one of which required that the midsize pickup truck tow heavy loads up steep hills. If the Ford Ranger can conquer such a challenge, you can rest assured that it is more than ready to tow up to 7,500 pounds around Buffalo.

Ford Ranger Off-Road Prowess

Practical performance like the Ford Ranger towing capacity and efficiency are obviously important, but how does it do on adventures? The Ranger is an off-road-ready midsize pickup, thanks to features like:

  • Terrain Management System™ with four selectable drive modes
  • FX4 Off-Road Package, which includes all-terrain tires, tuned off-road monotube shocks, electronic-locking rear differential, and more
  • Double A-arm independent front suspension
  • Two-stage parabolic rear leaf springs
