New 2020 Ford Ranger Trucks near Vista, CA

The 2020 Ford Ranger is one of the best compact trucks on the market this year. In terms of its fundamental abilities, towing and engine capabilities, its performance is excellent. It also manages to be relatively light on gas, and there are other touches and features that make it comfortable and appealing. The Ranger was out of the Ford lineup for several years until 2019, and the 2019 and 2020 model years have helped it carve out a place at the top of the competitive compact truck class of vehicles.

In 2020 the Ford Ranger only has one engine. Sometimes that can be a problem, because if a truck does not have any optional engine upgrades you might be stuck with a poor stock engine. However, the 270-horsepower model under the hood of the 2020 Ranger is quite powerful at this size. It has 310 lb-feet of torque. The engine feels fast to accelerate and delivers reliable power output whether you are towing or not. That's especially useful on highways or other roads near Oceanside where you might need to navigate through traffic at speed. Normally, high-performing engines weigh more and are less fuel-efficient, but the Ranger's engine is very good when it comes to gas. Its EPA mileage ratings are 21 for city roads and 26 for highways. If you opt for a model with four-wheel drive, you will get slightly less gas mileage. The Ranger's handling capabilities are quite good as well. You will feel fully in control and the truck will be responsive and tight in corners and maneuvering. Again, that performance holds up during tows as well.

There are many different options, trim levels, and categories for the 2020 Ford Ranger. It comes in three different trims, two different cab sizes, the choice of all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive, a towing add-on, a bed upgrade, and six different cosmetic appearance packages. All of that comes before other packages and options like infotainment and active safety tech. That leaves you with a lot of decisions to make. Some of them, like the tow add-on, are simple-- if you expect to tow, take that package, and if not, you won't need it. You should also think about whether you want the SuperCab design that seats 4 people or the Super Crew, which seats 5. One thing that separates the Ranger from some other trucks is that there is no trim that is specifically designed for off-road use. There is a package for it, but it doesn't have the full feature set of an off-road trim. In terms of value, the middle trim, the XLT, gives you the most for your money. It has many more features compared to the base XL trim, plus a few extra package offerings and options. The top trim, the Lariat, adds mostly a few extra comfort elements like heated seats. Your usage of the Ranger in cold weather will determine whether that is useful for you or not.
