I am getting out of an F-150 SuperCrew Lariat with 4-wheel drive. I kayak fish in the Gulf every weekend. Some launches require me to go down narrow and sometimes muddy roads for as far as 11 miles, so I want the piece of mind I get with 4-wheel drive. If I have to head north during the winter on a trip it will be helpful. Sometimes sandy areas can get soft at some of our launch points. Worth the extra expense for me. :)

Just put my order in Super Crew 4x4 501A, Trailer Tow, Running Boards, Keypad entry. Now wait a month to see it scheduled, 3 months to build date, then hope to get it in 5 months. Maybe I'll be alive then LOL

Retail orders wont be scheduled until the OK TO BUY is given, and since this is a major launch in what is essentially a new plant given the amount of retooling required might be longer than the typical week or 2 into production.

I can not imagine how much money and effort has gone into the re-launch of the Ranger! I think it will be worth all that has gone into it and Ford will be happy they did!

The adaptive cruise control doesn't include the words "stop and go" so no sale here (metropolitan Seattle).

The 2019MY Ranger Job #1 Date isn't until 11/26/2018. With the expected slow ramp up for an all-new model, it could easily take 4-6 weeks before the "OK to Buy" status (5 consecutive days of production with zero defects) is achieved which is when the initial shipping release is issued and retail orders will start to schedule. As such, I wouldn't be surprised to see the "OK to Buy" status reached until January and Dealer stock orders to arrive in February. As such, you could be looking at March 2019. It could be sooner but it's all speculation until production actually starts.

Those of you who have ordered, is price being discussed?

I called a dealer in SoCal who said that they couldn't order or price out a build yet, which I thought was odd..

What ice-capades is trying to tell you is your dealer lies. Or is just eternally optimistic. But most likely lies.

That definitely aint happening. Retooling construction is so far behind schedule that preproduction builds were delayed 2 weeks. Was supposed to start 8/13 but now isnt starting until next Monday. It absolutely would not shock me to see the job 1 date pushed back until December sometime, or even January because of the holiday break.

My pre-order sheet I got from my dealer had pricing on it including all the plan prices. I really do not expect to get it before Lat feb or march.

I'll assume you're looking for horsepower, torque and fuel economy ratings. Those will be probably be available around the time production starts or soon afterwards. Everything else is in the 2019 Ranger Order Guide.

Based on the MKC and Mustang - very very well. Way better than the old Ranger and probably better than the 2.0L Diesel.

Tow rating is not in the order guide. For us folks in the north heated side mirrors are a must. But you have to get a Lariat to get them. That's the biggest problem I see in the packaging.

Hi d-rail sir, test drive a 2018 or 2019 Mustang with 2.3L engine and 10-speed automatic transmission if you get a chance. I did that and found the powertrain very satisfactory.

 

My '04 Ranger has the 2.3L non-turbo 4-cylinder and 5-speed manual transmission.

That information will be in the 2019 RV & Trailer Towing Guide which has not been released yet. I'll upload a copy when it becomes available.

That IS a problem ! I will bet, the wiring is in the door. You probably just need the heated mirror itself and wiring. If they don't change this and add it to lower level option packages, the within a year you will see a lot of aftermarket people selling "upgrade" kits.

 

When you live in the snow/freezing rain belt, heated mirrors are a God-send !
