For those who enjoy the practicality and functionality of a pickup truck but don't like the big size and poor fuel economy, there's the midsize truck. And the Ford Motor Company has seamlessly combined sensibility and style in the 2021 Ford Ranger near Clarksville IN.

After being gone from the lineup for eight years, the good looking Ford Ranger returned to the US market in the fall of 2019, and it continues to offer exceptional value. The Ranger is offered in two body styles, the SuperCab (extended cab) and SuperCrew (crew cab), and comes in three different trims with an assortment of add-on packages. Two bed lengths are also available, as well as the choice of rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.

 

2021 Ford Ranger near Clarksville IN: Engine

All Ranger models get a gasoline powered 2.3-liter EcoBoost inline 4-cylinder engine with a turbocharger, which puts out 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. It serves up plenty of punch, especially in Sport mode, and is quicker than its competitors in a straight sprint. The Ranger even keeps up with the V6 engines that are under the hood of some rivals. In real world terms it means you'll have more than enough power to accelerate to pass another vehicle and to merge into fast moving traffic. Acceleration is smooth too, thanks to Ford's 10-speed automatic transmission.

And because all trim levels of the 2021 Ford Ranger near Clarksville IN are equipped with the same engine, any model can tow up to 7500 pounds, as long as the truck is fitted with the towing package. Even with the extra weight of 4WD and the SuperCrew cab, this little truck can move. Four-wheel drive variations can be switched between powering both axles or just the rear one, and the low-range transfer case helps deliver good off-road maneuvers.

But despite the general sportiness of the Ranger, it performs admirably when used for daily drives or just cruising down the highway. And even though it isn't a sports car, it does have enough agility to make it more fun to drive than the average full size pickup truck. It rides somewhat stiffly, but the suspension absorbs bumps and imperfections wonderfully, without troubling passengers. A bit of body roll can be felt, which is basically inescapable with any truck and doesn't take away from its performance. Thanks to the sharp steering and the excellent handling, the Ranger drives more like a crossover than a truck.

Although the 2021 Ford Ranger near Clarksville IN may not measure up to some of the leading off-road trucks in the same class, like the Jeep Gladiator, it is quite capable when you get off the pavement. You can also add options to the trim you choose, including a locking rear differential, an off-road suspension, skid plates, crawl control, and more. You'd be well-put to add the FX2, FX4, or the Tremor package if off-roading is high on your "to-do" list.

 

Inside, the cabin boasts function, style, and comfort. You and your passengers will love the supportive and nicely-padded seats that keep you relaxed and comfy even on long trips. Even though the Ranger's interior isn't as luxurious as some rivals, it's well made for its purpose. Along with stability control and anti-lock brakes, each model is equipped with pedestrian detection and forward collision mitigation with auto emergency braking.
