DETROIT, Jan. 14, 2018 – Ford today reveals the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger for North America, bringing midsize truck fans a new choice from America’s truck sales leader – one that’s engineered Built Ford Tough and packed with driver-assist technologies to make driving easier whether on- or off-road.

Production begins late this year at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant as customer demand is growing for midsize trucks. U.S. sales are up 83 percent since 2014 as a new generation of midsize truck buyers seek more maneuverable, fuel-efficient pickups.

The 2019 Ford Ranger answers the call with an all-new midsize pickup featuring a new exterior design, chassis and powertrain developed specifically for North American truck customers. Powerful and strong, with a high-strength steel frame, Ranger is equipped with a proven 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine mated to the only 10-speed automatic transmission in the segment.

“Ranger has always held a special place in the hearts of truck fans,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford executive vice president, Product Development and Purchasing. “The all-new Ranger is designed for today’s midsize truck buyer, delivering even more utility, capability and technology for those who blend city living with more off-the-grid adventures on weekends.”

Ranger comes in entry-level XL, mid-level XLT and high-level Lariat trim series with available Chrome and Sport appearance and FX Off-Road packages, and in SuperCab or SuperCrew cab configurations…

One of the most highly anticipated changes for the 2018 Mustang GT was the switch from the venerable 6R80 6-Speed automatic transmission to the 10R80 10-Speed that made its debut in the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor.  Behind the High-Output 3.5 EcoBoost in a truck the new tranny has proven to be quite stout, but the really question was how it would perform behind the new dual-injected 5.0 Coyote V8 in everybody’s favorite Pony-Car.  Luckily for us, SVTP Vendor Late Model Restoration just picked up a new 2018 Mustang GT equipped with the new 10R80 auto; along with a few other popular options.

Ford’s S550 2015 was a hit right out of the gate, but Mustang owners are always asking “what’s coming next?” Well, today is the day as Ford introduces the latest Mustang, which the Detroit automaker calls, the world’s best-selling sports coupe and the company’s most advanced Mustang ever. It seems to be inspired by the GT350, with a lower and sleeker nose, more naturally aspirated power with quad-exhaust, and Shelby suspension technology.
