    US Ranger Performance.

    2019 Ford Ranger 0-60 MPH and Toyota Tacoma Drag Race (Video)

    By Andre Smirnov - December 30, 2018

    How quick is the new 2019 Ford Ranger? We put it on our test track for a 0-60 MPH and in a drag race against a Toyota Tacoma V6 to find out.

    The Ranger is packing 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque @ 3,000 rpm from a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. 10-speed automatic is doing the shifting. Ford lists this rating with 87-octane fuel, although some reports suggest that the truck could be making closer to 300 horsepower on 93-octane. No matter, 93-octane is not available in Colorado due to higher elevations. Our test track is at approximately 1-mile above sea level.

    The Tacoma’s V6 is rated at 278 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque @ 4,600 rpm. The Tacoma we test here is equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

    Is this comparison totally predictable? Well, the Tacoma crew 4×4 TRD Off-Road you see here weighs approximately 100 lbs less than the fully loaded Ranger Lariat 4×4 FX4. The Toyota has a higher horsepower rating, and it has been known to get a good launch off the line. We did a couple of runs with and without the ECT PWR mode.

    The Ranger offers a Sport transmission shift mode, but no other performance enhancements. In the end, the Ranger was indeed quicker than the Tacoma. The 0-60 MPH at elevation is 7.34 sec. This is impressive, considering that the quickest midsize truck we tested until now was the Chevy Colorado with the 3.6L V6 and an 8-speed automatic at 7.93 seconds 0-60 mph on the same track.

    That's pretty rapid for a heavy truck. How does the turbo diesel Raptor stack up in comparison? I thought the 0-100 time was like 10.5 seconds

    10.7 sec for the Diesel Raptor.

    The US general range kills the Raptor onroad.

    Because we are deemed not to want it and the US cried longer and louder. If we don't get it in the next generation Ranger I will be pissed!

    The US don't buy diesels and they also have a market to dictate what engine they want.

    US Ranger Performance.

    Australia for a while there was crying out for diesels at a time where Ford was making more efficient petrols. In a twist of irony the market is shifting back towards cleaner fuels and now we all want turbo petrol and hybrids
