You can now officially order a new Ford Ranger, which means pricing info has been released. The online configurator reveals that starting MSRP on the base XL SuperCab with rear-wheel drive is $24,300, which includes destination fee. However, you can really option up the Ranger, pushing the price above $45,000. You could say maybe there’s a Ford Ranger for everyone.
Your $24,300 goes toward some nice features, even though the price might seem a little steep for anyone hoping to buy a really affordable midsize pickup. The XL SuperCab comes with a six-foot bed standard, plus automatic headlights, silver-painted steel wheels, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and a 3.5-inch infotainment touchscreen. If you want to add four-wheel drive, the price balloons to $28,460. Go figure.
The SuperCrew models feature a 5-foot bed and a $26,520 starting price. Again, four-wheel drive increases the price by over $4,000.
The midrange Ford Ranger XLT starts at $27,940 MSRP, or $31,940 with four-wheel drive. Among the extra goodies that come standard are automatic high beams, fog lights, aluminum wheels, lane keep assist, plus blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and a trailer tow monitoring system.
If you really want to go upscale, the Ranger Lariat begins at $32,210. Adding four-wheel drive pushes MSRP to $36,210. Leather upholstery, LED headlights, keyless access, and Sync 3 are all included. If you opt for a SuperCrew, MSRP is $34,385 or $38,385 with rear-wheel or four-wheel drive, respectively. With plenty of packages and other options, prices inflate quickly.
The Ford Ranger should arrive at dealers in early 2019.
