What Advantages Does the All-New 2019 Ford Ranger Lineup at Akins Ford near Atlanta GA Hold Over the 2018 Nissan Frontier Lineup?

If Ford is going to reenter the midsize pickup truck segment with the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger lineup, you know it’s going to have something truly spectacular under the hood. And that’s exactly what the 2019 Ranger lineup has, as it features an all-new next generation 2.3-liter EcoBoost V6 engine paired with a class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain is expected to offer best-in-class power, capability and fuel efficiency, so you know it’s more powerful, more capable and more fuel efficient than the 2018 Nissan Frontier lineup’s standard 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine and 5-speed manual transmission.

The 2019 Ranger lineup’s powertrain also helps you tackle any off-road adventures you may have in mind, but it’s not just the all-new Ranger lineup’s engine that helps out there. In fact, the 2019 Ford Ranger lineup also features an available FX4 Off-Road Package and an all-new Trail Control system – which, essentially, is cruise control for low-speed rugged terrain. The 2018 Nissan Frontier lineup does offer available off-road tires, but that’s all.
