2020 Ford Ranger LARIAT Features and Specs
If you’re looking for a new midsize pickup truck, you're probably considering a new Ford Ranger. It's a pickup that's enjoyed massive success in markets around the world before the nameplate finally got a re-launch here in the US, but which one should you go for? Here we try to help you decide by taking a closer look at one model, in particular, the top-of-the-range 2020 Ford Ranger Lariat.
The new Ranger Ford trucks are a thoroughly modern take on the popular pickup truck formula, and the engine under the hood of the Ford Ranger Lariat is appropriately contemporary. The unit in question is a 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbo-four, which develops a healthy 270 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine features stop/start technology for improving fuel economy and cutting emissions, and the power is sent to the front wheels in standard form through Ford's sensational 10-speed automatic transmission.
Of course, all-wheel-drive is an available option, but it needs noting that it's a part-time system that's designed for off-road and isn’t meant for use on dry pavement.
Although the Lariat is the top-of-the-range model and looks the part even in its standard form, there are several ways of dressing up the truck. As well as the standard model, the Lariat is also available with a Chrome Package, a Sport and FX4 Off-Road Package, or a Black Appearance and FX4 Off-Road Package.
The Lariat is available as a SuperCrew with a five-foot box or as a SuperCab with a six-foot box. Both versions are standard rear-wheel-drive with all-wheel-drive available.
Standard exterior features include body-color door handles, tailgate handles and side-view mirror caps; chrome fender vent surrounds; chrome grille bars with chrome surround LED headlamps, fog lamps, cargo lamp, and taillights; power-folding side-view mirrors with power, heated glass, integrated turn signal indicators, and security approach lamps.
Inside the Lariat, you'll enjoy the standard dual-zone climate control; ambient lighting; auto-dimming rearview mirror; carpeted floor mats; dual 4.2-inch productivity screens in the instrument cluster; intelligent access with push-button start; steering wheel, door-trim inserts and shift knob that are leather-wrapped; a manual sliding rear window with defroster; SiriusXM and a universal garage door opener. The Lariat comes standard with eight-way power, heated leather seats in the front, and the rear seats are also leather-trimmed for that premium look and feel.
Infotainment and connectivity
Infotainment is taken care of by a Ford SYNC® 3 system that has an 8-inch LCD capacitive touchscreen and features 911 Assist, AppLink, Bluetooth connectivity, a pair of smart-charging USB ports, navigation, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility. The infotainment is completed with the inclusion of FordPass Connect™ with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot for ultimate connectivity.
The Ranger Lariat has all the airbags, ABS and other safety features you’d expect from a modern pickup truck, but it also gets a healthy dose of Ford Co-Pilot360™ technology too. This includes Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking; a Rear View Camera with Dynamic Hitch Assist; Auto High-Beams; a Blind Spot Information System with Trailer Coverage and Cross-Traffic Alert, a Lane-Keeping System, Adaptive Cruise Control and so much more!
