2019 Ford Ranger Interior: Everything We Know
Curious as to what you can expect from the interior of the 2019 Ford Ranger? Here’s everything you need to know.
Over the last several months, we’ve been teased with little information surrounding the 2019 Ford Ranger. But that isn’t really a surprise given the fact that this is a truck that likely won’t hit dealer lots until early 2019. That coup on details extends even to the interior, where we have precious little to go by. At the very least, Ford has graced us with some images of the range-topping Lariat’s threads. So we can use those, along with a little research, to determine exactly what you can expect from the 2019 Ford Ranger interior.
For starters, we know that the Lariat is the top trim level for the U.S. 2019 Ford Ranger. At least until Ford (maybe) brings the Ranger Raptor to our shores. From these official images, we get a good look at the black leather surfaces of those fancy duds. The “Ranger” name is embossed on the seats, and the leather extends to the dash. Dash trim consists of painted grey plastic trim, though it could be body color on certain models.
Moving to the dash, you can see digital information displayed on either side of the speedometer. As with other, current Ford models, expect the Ranger to offer customizable displays. Also in the photos you’ll notice the available Sync 3 software, which features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, Ford+Alexa personal assistant functionality, and optional navigation.
Also available is the new FordPass Connect 4G LTE modem, which provides Wi-Fi access for up to 10 devices. Available AC power outlets allow for charging of laptops, while USB outlets offer more options for passengers to connect. Available B&O PLAY premium audio is specially tuned for the Ranger cab to deliver a rich and engaging listening experience.
To give customers a great all-terrain driving experience, Ranger’s FX4 Off-Road Package features an innovative Terrain Management System similar to the F-150 Raptor’s. It includes four distinct drive modes – normal; grass, gravel and snow; mud and ruts; and sand. The system can shift on the fly to automatically change throttle responsiveness, transmission gearing, and vehicle controls to tailor traction, driveability and performance to any given terrain or weather condition.
The FX4 Off-Road Package also features Ford’s all-new Trail Control technology. Like cruise control for the highway but designed for low-speed, rugged terrain, Trail Control takes over acceleration and braking – sending power and braking to each individual wheel to allow drivers to focus on steering along the course.
