What’s the Ranger’s interior and in-car technology like?
Whether your driving from Whistler to Vancouver through snow or sun, the new 2019 Ford Ranger gives you all the luxury you need. It’s probably a matter of personal preference as to whether you’d prefer the Ranger’s interior design and layout to the Toyota Tacoma, we agree that both interiors are superior to the too-understated Chevy Colorado and the aging Nissan Frontier. The Ranger’s interior has a chunky and handsome look.
We find the Ranger’s seats to be comfortable even on long drives, with a much better seating position than the Tacoma, which puts front passengers too close to the floor. Low-trim trucks make do with the ancient-looking, single-color 2.3-inch information screen between the analog gauges that provides basic trip computer information, but on optioned-up or higher trim trucks, there’s the modern, multi-color 4.2-inch screen that has more available information and features. The top-of-the-line Lariat gets a dual-4.2-inch instrument cluster with an analog speedometer in between. Likewise, low-trim trucks get the Ford Sync infotainment system with a 4.2-inch screen controlled by surrounding buttons. For XLT and higher trims, the available Sync 3 system improves things considerably with an 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality. Sync 3 is not our favorite infotainment system, so the ability to bypass it with smartphone integration is welcome.
