Hey, listen, if you want to watch Ford videos, that's entirely up to you. We're not going to judge you. In fact, we will even make it easy for you to see the latest Ranger Raptor spy video (from Ford Austrailia).

 

 

 

That said, you're more than welcome to comment on the video below if you like. Here's mine; "Ford missed half a decade of huge midsize truck sales, but they made a decent video."

      Polaris is adding some umph to the Ranger Crew for 2019. The new Crew XP1000 features the same 82-horsepower 2-cylinder engine from the 2019 Ranger XP1000 but can haul around nearly twice as many people. With 6 person capacity, the Ranger Crew XP1000 can move people, equipment, or just about anything. We previously reviewed a long term Ranger XP900 and loved every minute. How can you go wrong with better styling, a new interior, and MORE power? You can't
       




       
       
      Here's the press release from Polaris and a few videos showing off the main features of the 2019 Ranger XP1000 and Ranger Crew XP1000. 
       
       
       
      Polaris® Introduces Completely Reinvented 2019 RANGER CREW® XP 1000
       
      Fueled by More than 100 Owner-Inspired Improvements, the All-New RANGER CREW XP 1000 Sets the New Standard for Six-Passenger Utility Side-by-Sides
      More Rugged. More Refined. More RANGER.™
      More Rugged: 82 Horsepower, Industry-Leading 13 Inches of Ground Clearance and 1,750 Pounds of Payload Capacity
      More Refined: All-New Interior with Unmatched In-Cab Hauling and Comfort for Six
      More RANGER: More than 100 Owner-Inspired Improvements, Standard One-Year Warranty and 200-Plus Accessory Options
       
      Minneapolis (April 10, 2018) – Polaris RANGER®, the industry’s No.1-selling utility side-by-side vehicle, today introduced the completely reinvented 2019 RANGER CREW® XP 1000, setting the new standard for six-passenger utility. It brings added passenger and payload capacity to the world’s HARDEST WORKING. SMOOTHEST RIDING.® side-by-side. Fueled by more than 100 owner-inspired improvements, including best-in-class power, towing, ground clearance and payload capacity, the all-new RANGER CREW XP 1000 redefines what a six-person utility machine can do.
      “After 20 years of building more than one-million RANGER vehicles, we know what it takes to deliver industry-leading innovation. The all-new RANGER CREW XP 1000 embodies our ongoing commitment to improving the owner experience and surpassing their lifestyle needs,” said Chris Musso, president of Off-Road Vehicles, Polaris. “This machine delivers an unparalleled balance of capability and comfort, offering the ultimate solution for any job that requires more people and more gear.”
      Best-in-Class by Any Measure
      The 2019 RANGER CREW XP 1000 is the undisputed king of six-seat utility side-by-sides. It has been engineered to outwork the competition, starting with the ProStar® 1000 power plant, which generates a class-best 82 horsepower. All that power is turned into productivity with a massive 2,500 pounds of towing capacity – 500 pounds more than the closest competitor. When the job calls for a full crew, the machine effortlessly hauls up to six people and their gear with an industry-leading payload capacity of 1,750-pounds.
      Much more than just a workhorse, the all-new RANGER CREW XP 1000 builds on the legendary ride and handling RANGER is known for. It boasts up-to 13 inches of class-leading ground clearance and more durable, 27-inch, 6-ply tires to conquer the toughest terrain. With an unrivaled 11 inches of suspension travel courtesy of RANGER CREW-specific shocks, the ride stays ultra-smooth even when the land is not. Thanks to a 10-percent tighter turning radius and standard EPS, drivers can navigate tight confines with precise control.
      Unmatched In-Cab Refinement
      Drivers and passengers alike will appreciate the entirely reimagined in-cab experience of the RANGER CREW XP 1000. The cut-and-sew seats are thicker and more durable to provide all-day comfort, while entering and exiting the vehicle is made easier with an additional five inches of clearance for both front and rear passengers. A new digital/analogue gauge delivers information to the driver at a glance.
      The vehicle’s innovative interior design allows riders to haul more gear with new flip-up front and rear passenger seats, plus a new under-seat pass-through for hauling items that require more space. It boasts an expansive 19 gallons of in-cab storage, including 8 cup holders and a huge double glove box.
      Built for the Long-Haul
      The all-new RANGER CREW XP 1000 is also proven to be tougher, stronger, and more durable. It features dozens of durability improvements, including a more rigid, one-piece chassis, a completely redesigned heavy-duty PVT clutch system, a full-body skid plate, and sealed suspension bushings – all backed by a standard one-year factory warranty.
      Off-Road Climate Control
      When the weather turns harsh, ride in comfort in the RANGER CREW® XP 1000 NORTHSTAR HVAC Edition. This special edition features a factory-installed heating and air conditioning system and the new, premium RANGER Pro Shield™ cab system –proven to have three-times better dust protection than competitive OEM offerings. Larger sealing surfaces and new gaskets help keep the controlled temperature in and dust out, while both front and rear ventilation provides better airflow and comfort for all passengers.
      Next-Level Accessory Integration
      The RANGER CREW XP 1000 takes accessory integration to new heights. The industry’s largest stock front bumper includes an integrated Polaris Glacier® plow mount as well as mounting points for lighting accessories and a Polaris winch – now featuring industry-first Rapid Rope Recovery technology. Additionally, the Polaris Pulse™ electrical system allows for plug-and-play installation of Polaris Engineered™ powered accessories.
      With more than 200 options available, Polaris Engineered™ accessories – which have been designed, tested and validated with the machine – make it easier than ever to customize the RANGER CREW XP 1000 for any work or recreation application. For example, the RANGER Pro Shield™ cab system offers more than 1,800 customizable configurations; and Pro Armor Harvester® tires, developed in partnership with Pro Armor® specifically for RANGER, feature triple-belted sidewalls, a 10-ply rating and a 5,000-mile tread life.
      Offered in Sage Green, Sunset Red Metallic and Polaris Pursuit® Camo, the all-new RANGER CREW XP 1000 will be available in dealerships starting in late April. Even with the 100-plus owner-inspired improvements, the machine starts at $16,299 US and $19,999 CAN.

      Ford’s new Ranger debuted last night at midnight just after the launch of the new Silverado. The new Ranger arrives with modern driver aids, modern infotainment and will sport a 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

      “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.”

      The new Ranger has a unique engine offering in this segment. The 2.3-liter EcoBoost makes about 310 hp and about 350 lb-ft of torque. This engine (on paper at least) will offer diesel-like torque at low RPMs, but also have the power of the up-powered Toyota Tacoma and Colorado/Canyon.
      Ranger trims will include the entry-level XL, mid-level XLT. The Lariat trim series with be available with Chrome and Sport appearance packages in SuperCab or SuperCrew cab configurations.

      The new Ranger will also launch with an FX4 Off-Road Package that will include protective skid plates, upgraded tires, off-road-tuned shocks and suspension, and Ford’s Terrain Management System and Trail Control which sounds a bit like Toyota’s crawl control system.  

      Power will be distributed through Dana AdvanTEK independent front and solid rear axles on both 2WD and 4WD models with an available electronic-locking rear axle (standard on FX2 and FX4).  Ranger four-wheel-drive versions will feature 2-high, 4-high and 4-low.

      Infotainment will include available Apple Car Play and Android Auto, 4G LTE, and Alexa integration. Driver assist systems will include standard automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and class-exclusive Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage.
       
      Production of the all-new Ford Ranger will begin in late 2018 at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant.

      Ford announced today that the Ranger midsize pickup truck will return for model year 2019. That means that the Ranger is about two full years away from being available for sale. Along with this news, Ford announced a rugged new Broco midsize SUV. Ford made this statement on the Bronco:
      - “We’ve heard our customers loud and clear. They want a new generation of vehicles that are incredibly capable yet fun to drive,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of The Americas. “Ranger is for truck buyers who want an affordable, functional, rugged and maneuverable pickup that’s Built Ford Tough. Bronco will be a no-compromise midsize 4x4 utility for thrill seekers who want to venture way beyond the city.” Interestingly, Ford also had a lot to say about the exact opposite; vehicle and transportation solutions for people who want to be driven about in autonomous EVs.
       
      Ford was very clear that its Bronco and Ranger would all be built in the U.S. at its plants in Wayne, Michigan.
       
      We are presently searching for official images of the Ranger and Bronco and will add them to the story as they are available.

      Let's all agree to be honest about a few things. First, as we say here in New England "Nothing on the level." That is a quote made popular by Howie Carr, a famous Boston corruption reporter. So when we read that international media were invited to a Ford Australia meeting during which Ford accidentally showed the press a new Ranger testing alongside the Tacoma (a North-American product, Hilux is the international model) and the Colorado, we are not as surprised as we might be. It could be an accident, a misunderstanding, or Ford might have staged it. Who cares, really? A new Ranger would be cool. I have friends nursing their current Ranger and saying a prayer each night that it will come back to market before theirs dies completely.
       
      Let's also face the truth that the reason GM and Toyota sell-out their mid-size trucks each month may not be an accident. Perhaps they both know that Ford will return to the U.S. market and that is the reason two of the globe's largest and most capable automakers have not expanded their factories to meet the demand. Factories and workers are very difficult to downsize. Sold-out trucks is not a bad thing.
       
      Last, although we root for GM here, imagine an aluminum Ford Ranger with the 2.7-liter Ecoboost. It gives me the shivers in a good way. How about you?
