Pickups don't have to be big and bulky. If you're looking for a truck that's easy to drive (and get into), a compact model could be perfect. And at the top of that class is the 2021 Ford Ranger.

 

Power and Performance

Model Specs

  • Starting price: $24,820
  • Engine: 2.3-liter, 4-cylinder
  • Power: 270 horsepower, 310 lb.-ft. of torque
  • Transmission: 10-speed automatic 
  • MPG: 26 HWY

There's only one engine choice with the Ford Ranger, but it is really all you need. It's a 2.3-liter four-cylinder unit that puts out 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft. of torque. This is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Rear-wheel drive comes standard, but four-wheel drive is available. This Ford pickup has fantastic handling, and it drives less like a truck and more like an SUV.

It can also offer great performance off-road; you can get yours with a terrain management system, skid plates, and an off-road-tuned suspension. The Ford Ranger gets great fuel economy for its class: 21 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.

Towing and Hauling

While it won't be confused for the Ford F-150, the Ford Ranger is no slouch in the towing department, as its tow rating is 7,500 pounds. Every model also comes with a Trailer Sway Control, which makes towing a breeze.

The maximum capacity is impressive as well: 1,860 pounds. You'll have your choice of two beds: the SuperCab comes with a six-footer, and the SuperCrew's has a five-footer.

Interior

If you go with the SuperCab, you will have plenty of room for up to five people. The SuperCab fits four. This new Ford comes standard with four-way manually adjustable front seats and cloth upholstery.

Available features include:

  • Power-adjustable front seats
  • Heated front seats
  • Leather or vinyl upholstery

As for tech, every Ford Ranger comes with:

  • A USB port
  • Bluetooth®
  • A Wi-Fi hot spot
  • A four-speaker stereo

Some of the available components include push-button start, Android Auto™, and Apple CarPlay®.

Safety

Automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, and a rearview camera come in every Ford Ranger. You will also get the Ford MyKey® system, which lets you put limits on how fast another driver (like a teen, for example) can drive.

Optional safety features include lane keep assist, front and rear parking sensors, and blind spot monitoring.
