Ford Ranger Specifications


If you feel that a full-size F-150 is too large or capable for you, the 2022 Ford Ranger should suit your needs and budget. Instead of V-6 and V8 powertrains like its sibling, the Ranger has a turbocharged 2.3L four-cylinder engine with 10-speed automatic transmission; rear wheel drive comes standard but all wheel drive is an available option for every trim level.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance


If you open the hood of the 2022 Ford Ranger, you will see a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. With this amount of power, the Ranger XLT we tested was able to move quickly, and output was smooth.

We were impressed with the Ranger XL's speed and agility when we put it to the test at the track. All Ranger trucks come with a 10-speed automatic transmission that provides smooth, quick shifts. Rear-drive models have 8.4 inches of ground clearance, while four-wheel drive versions offer 8.9 inches of ground clearance.


The Ranger comes with a Terrain Management System to enhance the truck's performance based on the ground it is driving on. There are four modes that can be chosen: Normal, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts, and Sand.


Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG


he Tremor model sees both ratings drop to 19 mpg. We subjected three Rangers to our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen. Two of these were crew-cab four-wheel-drive models, and they achieved 16 mpg and 15 mpg combined after some fairly aggressive driving. The third version was rear-wheel drive, and it achieved 25 mgp in highway testing - 5 miles better than expected!
