We know that there is no better way to experience the outdoors than in an off-road vehicle. And the new Ford Ranger at our showroom at Woodhouse Ford South is the perfect vehicle to take on your next adventure.

 

Off-Roading in the New Ford Ranger

The Ford Ranger is a pickup truck, that uses a rather compact engine to provide some serious torque-heavy power. Before we get into the nitty-gritty of off-road specs and features, we should first take a look at the engine. The Ford Ranger is propelled by a 2.3-liter turbocharged engine that produces 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft worth of torque with the assistance of a slick 10-speed automatic transmission.

While the Ford Ranger comes standard with a rear-wheel drivetrain, it doesn’t take much to upgrade to the optional four-wheel-drive system. This drive system is part-time operational, meaning it excels on both paved roads and rugged terrain. The Ford Ranger can be bumped up a notch too with the help of the FX4 off-road package. Within this package is a slew of additional rugged features including an electronic rear differential which divides up torque along the rear axle. This FX4 off-road package also comes with a kind of off-road cruise control, which allows you to navigate about the trail at preset speeds. The Ford Ranger also comes standard with some pretty impressive ground clearance measuring in at 8.4 inches. However, if you purchase the four-wheel-drive system, the Ford Ranger gets a ground clearance boost up to 8.9 inches.
