Engine and Performance Features of the 2023 Ford Ranger  

Thanks to the new Maverick compact truck, the Ford Ranger mid-size pickup is no longer the smallest in the lineup. The Ranger has a 270-hp turbocharged inline-four and a 10-speed automatic transmission; it is seen as more of a diet F-150 than a mini-truck. It performs admirably with a 7,500-pound maximum towing capability. The Ranger is still just as trucky even if it isn’t as new as other rivals, and rear-wheel drive is the standard. A four-door SuperCrew and a two-door SuperCab with a six-foot bed are available options for the Ranger. The Ranger may be equipped with a Tremor accessories kit for maximum off-road silliness. In this blog by Kimber Creek Ford, we’ll discuss the engine and performance features of the 2023 Ford Ranger.

What’s Under the Hood of the 2023 Ford Ranger?  

Although it is not yet available in the United States, the new Ford Ranger Raptor will ultimately make its way to North America. The Ford Ranger’s engine is a 2.3-liter four-cylinder turbocharged unit that produces 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. Things are made even more amazing by the lighter Ranger XL, which astounds users with its speed and agility when we put it through its paces at the track. A 10-speed automatic transmission is standard on all Ranger vehicles and offers seamless and rapid shifts. Models with rear-wheel drive have an 8.4-inch ground clearance, while those with four-wheel drive have an 8.9-inch clearance. The Ranger can be ordered with a Terrain Management System, which modifies factors like transmission gearing and engine reactivity to enhance the truck’s performance on various types of terrain. There are four selectable driving settings: Normal, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts, and Sand.
