2019 Ford Ranger Pricing
Ford’s build and price tool reveals a starting price of $24,300 for the entry-level Ranger XL. The 2019 Ford Ranger XLT will start at $27,940, and the range-topping Ford Ranger Lariat starts at $32,310. All prices exclude destination and delivery charges as well as other fees.
The starting prices reflect models with the SuperCab, six-foot box, and 4×2 drivetrain. Keeping the same cab and box configuration and upgrading to 4×4 bumps prices to $28,460 for the XL, $31,940 for the XLT, and $36,210 for the Lariat.
The Ranger SuperCrew with five-foot box and 4×2 starts at $26,520 for the XL, $30,115 for the XLT, and $34,385 for Lariat. Models with 4×4 start at $30,680 for the XL, $34,115 for the XLT, and $38,385 for the Lariat.

2019 Ford Ranger Standard Equipment
Perhaps as important, this now gives us some idea of what to expect in terms of equipment. Though somewhat spartan, the base-level Ranger XL is not quite bare bones with standard technologies like Trailer Sway Control and Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking.
The 2019 Ford Ranger XLT provides quite a bit of bang for the modest increase in buck with Ford Co-Pilot360, which adds automatic high beam headlamps, Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Tow Monitoring, and Lane-Keeping System. The more tech-savvy Ranger XLT also gets a Forward Sensing System and Reverse Sensing System, SYNC infotainment, FordPass Connect 4G Wi-Fi modem, a smart-charging USB port, a larger 4.2-inch screen in the center stack, and Remote Keyless-Entry with Remote Tailgate Lock.
Until the eventual arrival of a Limited trim and Raptor variant — c’mon, you know they’re coming — the 2019 Ford Ranger Lariat represents the peak of the lineup. It’s quite a bit more luxurious than its counterparts with heated eight-way power leather-trimmed front bucket seats, leather-trimmed bench seats for the SuperCrew and a leather-trimmed -old bench seat for the SuperCab, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and color-coordinated carpet with Nubuck-edged carpeted floor mats. It’s also smarter thanks to SYNC 3 with an 8-inch LCD touch-screen display with swipe capability, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, universal garage door opener, a second smart-charging USB port, an LED cargo lamp, LED headlamps, and LED taillamps.
2019 Ford Ranger Optional Features
The Ford Ranger is available in eight colors, including five standard options: Shadow Black, Oxford White, Ingot Silver, Magnetic, and Blue Lightning. Hot Pepper Red is available for an added cost of $395 for XLT and Lariat; White Platinum costs an additional $595 for Lariat; and Saber is exclusively offered with the 101A equipment package and STX Appearance Package for XL, 301A equipment package and Sport Appearance Package for XLT, and 501A equipment package and Sport Appearance Package.
Staying at the top of the range with the Ranger Lariat, the 501A equipment package ($1,795) adds a B&O PLAY Premium Sound System for SuperCrew models, rain-sensing windshield wipers, remote start functionality, windshield wiper de-icer, and the contents of the Technology Package. The Technology Package can be had as a standalone for $795, adding Adaptive Cruise Control and Navigation.
The Chrome Appearance Package and Sport Appearance Package offer unique aesthetic features for the XLT and Lariat trims, with the former adding $795 to your final price and the latter adding $895. The FX4 Off-Road Package, which adds rugged features like Terrain Management System and Trail Control to XLT and Lariat 4×4 models, adds $1,295.
More, you say? Okay, sure. Among the other packages and options offered with the 2019 Ford Ranger are the Trailer Tow Package, rectangular running boards, spray-in bedliner, a retractable tonneau cover, and tray-style floor liners. If you decide you want every single one of the highest-priced options available for the fanciest Ranger Lariat possible, you’re looking at around $48,715 before fees. Spicy!
