What’s the Price of the 2019 Ford Ranger?
Saving your pennies for a 2019 Ford Ranger? Here’s what you can expect to spend, no matter what the configuration.
Thus far, Ford has remained mum on most of the details surrounding the 2019 Ford Ranger. Sure, we know what it looks like. We know what colors it’s available in, and we’ve seen the interior as well. But as far as towing capacity, engine specs, fuel economy ratings, and price go, we’ve got little to go by. On the bright side, we’ve got a pretty good idea of what the new Ranger will cost you when it goes on sale in early 2019.
For starters, the new Ranger Raptor sells for the U.S. equivalent of around $40,000 in Thailand. And while we don’t know yet if the Raptor will hit our shores, we do know that equivalent vehicles historically sell for less here in the states than they do overseas. And of course, the Raptor is obviously at the top of the Ranger food chain. So the question is, what will the remaining trim levels of the 2019 Ford Ranger sell for here in the U.S.?
Sticker price is obviously a hot topic here in the Ford Truck Enthusiasts forums. And one of our members, WXboy, has a strong theory about what the new Ranger’s MSRP will land at.
“I have a feeling that the 4×4 models are going to start in the low to mid $30k range and quickly go up from there if you want any options.”
Going by the Raptor’s $40k price tag, that’s not a bad guess at all. We’d peg the 4×4’s starting price closer to the low $30s or even the upper $20s, as the cheapest four-wheel drive F-150 you can buy will run you just over $32k. We can also apply that logic to two-wheel drive models. The F-150’s base MSRP is just over $27k. So you can bet that the cheapest Ranger likely won’t exceed that price point.
Another reference we can use as a basis for the 2019 Ford Ranger sticker price is the competition. The Chevrolet Colorado has a base price of just over $20,000. But that’s for regular cab, work truck trim. The Ranger, on the other hand, is only offered in SuperCab or SuperCrew configurations in XL, XLT, and Lariat trims. For now, at least.
The cheapest extended cab Colorado will set you back around $21k. Opting for a crew cab runs the base price up to $27k. The cheapest four-wheel drive Colorado you can buy is $29k, however, a significant jump. And depending on how you option it out, you can easily drop $40k on a Colorado. Without even going for the ZR2 off-road package.
Thus, we can draw some pretty solid conclusions about the cost of the 2019 Ford Ranger. A base, two-wheel drive, XL SuperCab with no options will likely cost somewhere in the low to mid $20k range. Stepping up to four-wheel drive will raise the price somewhere into the low to mid $30s. And if you opt for all the bells and whistles, expect to dish out somewhere in the upper $30s or low $40s.
