The Ford Ranger makes a dramatic comeback! Here's what you need to know for its triumphant return

Well folks, we've waited a long while to be able to say this, but the Ford Ranger is finally coming back to our Leesville, LA showroom. This midsize truck is a cult favorite amongst Ford fans, and though it's been absent from the lineup for a number of years, it's returning stronger, more versatile, and overall more rugged than ever. And if you're even half as excited as we are about what's coming with the new Ford Ranger, you're going to want to read on to see what it'll have in store.

Set to hit our showroom in the near future, the Ford Ranger is smaller in size than its siblings in the Ford F-Series, but it's no less dynamic and innovative. With a wide front grille and cleanly defined silhouette, the Ford Ranger exudes a confidence that few of its midsize rivals can even hold a candle to. What's more, with your choice of SuperCab with a 6-foot bed or SuperCrew or 5-foot bed, you can can choose whether you need a bit more space for friends when driving around town in DeRiddler, LA, or a bit more room for gear at work.

But while it's bold exterior design may be the initial draw for many drivers, it's the performance credentials of the new Ford Ranger that really set it apart from the competition. One of the best things about owning a midsize truck like the Ford Ranger is that it boasts the capability and power comparable to its larger siblings, but still offers drivability and efficiency comparable to some of the SUVs in the the Ford lineup.

For example, if you need a truck to take out to work in nearby Fort Polk, LA, you'll love the fact that the 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine available on the Ford Ranger features Auto Stop-Start technology, allowing the vehicle to stop its engine to conserve fuel when the vehicle comes to a full stop, then automatically restart it when you take your foot off the break. This makes it perfect for getting through stop-and-go rush hour traffic without burning through your fuel budget.

However, when you need all that raw power, the Auto Stop-Start tech disengages, allowing you to leverage the all the muscle this midsize truck has to offer. And with up to 310 pound-feet of torque at your disposal, you can haul payloads of up to 1,860 pounds in its generously proportioned bed, or tow up to 7,500 pounds on a trailer if need be. That's more than enough for most boats, making the Ford Ranger a great truck for folks who spend their summers out on the water.

Of course, even if you're not planning on hauling heavy loads, the Ford Ranger practically comes alive when you take it off the beaten path. If you're like many drivers from nearby Many, LA, then you absolutely live for hunting season, and you need a truck that can haul along all your gear and tackle any terrain you might face on those early morning rides. Fortunately, with its available FX4 Off-Road Package, Terrain Management System, and even Trail Control™ system, the Ford Ranger takes to off-road driving like a fish to water, allowing you to get to places that even some larger trucks wouldn't dare to tread.

Ultimately, it's hard to express just how excited we are about the new Ford Ranger with words alone, and we're certain you'll feel the same way once you've taken one out for a spin. So, feel free to stop by Hixson Ford of Leesville to schedule your test drive with the new Ford Ranger today!
