2019 Ford Ranger Testing Ensures Its Tough Enough

When you purchase the new 2019 Ford Ranger, Ford wants to make sure you’re getting a pickup truck that’s rough and ready for your next big adventure – no matter where it takes you. That’s why the American truck maker is putting the Ranger through its paces in some of the most grueling testing ever.

2019 Ford Ranger testing has ranged from demanding lab tests to robotic testing – it’s even seen the Ranger being pushed to its limits in the rugged Australian Outback and the heat of the Arizona desert, all in an effort to make sure this all-new truck is Built Ford Tough.

“We torture every component – from its high-strength steel frame to its EcoBoost® engine to its cloth and leather-trimmed seats – to ensure the Ranger is ready for any season and nearly any terrain,” said Rick Bolt, Ford Ranger chief engineer.

Testing first started in the lab, moving to Ford’s Michigan Proving Grounds once the Ranger prototype showed it was ready for the next challenge. At the proving grounds, robotic drivers are used behind the wheels to endure impacts that are so severe, human drivers could be injured.

Once it’s cleared there, its towing capability is tested in the inferno-like heat at the Davis Dam in Arizona and the dusty, harsh off-road terrain of the Australian Outback. After going through this type of endurance testing, you can only assume that the 2019 Ford Ranger will be able to handle whatever you throw at it.

Here at Shults Ford Harmarville, we are eagerly anticipating the arrival of the 2019 Ford Ranger.
