Performance, safety, and rugged good looks ...

From the lean and lightweight XL to the fully stocked XLT and Lariat, the 2020 Ford Ranger receives praise for its rugged good looks, standard safety features, and on/off road performance capacity. The 2020 Ford Ranger offers adventure, whether you’re traversing the trails or traveling to local markets and around town.

The base model Ranger XL delivers performance, quick acceleration, and smooth driving in a value-priced category. It’s also lighter than other models. Driver-assist technology provides easier driving on and off the pavement. Forward collision warning and automated emergency braking come standard. The safety features on the base models are equivalent to what some competitors use in their top models.

The 2020 Ford Ranger is available with an extended cab (Supercab) or a crew cab (Supercrew). The Supercab seats four and has two half doors. The Supercrew seats five and has four full-size doors.

It’s built tough and rugged for towing boats, RVs, or trailers full of mulch. A raked grille and windshield sport an athletic attitude and help with aerodynamics and reduced wind noise. Terrain Management System offers four modes: Normal, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts, or Sand. This is one of our favorite features to achieve perfect traction and drivability.

A rugged steel bumper has an available integrated trailer hitch for towing, boats, RVS, trailers, and campers.
