2020 Ford Ranger

2020 Ranger Photos
We’re in the middle of an off-road pickup truck craze, from the high-powered Ford F-150 Raptor to the unique Jeep Gladiator. But it’s not just OEMs getting in on the action, aftermarket companies are cashing in on off-road upgrades including Roush, which has an upgrade package for the 2020 Ford Ranger. Visual upgrades abound, and the exterior ones do their best to make the Ranger look like a Raptor. You’ll immediately notice the grille with big “ROUSH” lettering in the middle instead of “FORD.” And instead of amber marker lights, two sets of LED running lights are fitted in the top of the grille. The fenders receive dark metallic painted flares that add a little bit of width, and there are Raptor-esque LED markers at the rear. Roush adds a smattering of graphics around the truck and some red-painted tow hooks, too. Inside, Roush fits custom diamond-stitched leather upholstery, Roush branding on the instrument cluster, WeatherTech floor liners, a custom key fob and a big badge on the dash. As for mechanical upgrades, they’re fairly mild. The 18-inch Roush wheels are fitted with 32-inch all-terrain tires. The truck sits on Fox 2.0 shocks with matched Roush springs, which level the ride height similar to the Ford Performance levelling kit. Roush also adds its own cat-back exhaust that adds sound, but no power to the Ranger’s otherwise stock 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. For an extra $935, you can get a Level 1 Roush Performance Pac that includes an engine and transmission calibration along with a new intake. It optimizes shift programming for performance and adds 47 horsepower measured at the wheels and 65 pound-feet of torque Our test truck was not equipped with this, though. All added parts are under warranty for three years/36,000 miles. We only had a few hours with the Roush Ranger, so our drive was entirely on the street. And as one would expect from the modification list, it doesn’t drive particularly different to a regular Ranger. The suspension does seem better tuned than the factory Ford FX4 off-road suspension, as it’s smoother and better controlled over bumps. It doesn’t add any more body roll, and the steering is still reasonably precise with some mild feedback. There’s not much grip on pavement, though, compared with Rangers with less aggressive off-road tires. As for the exhaust, it’s got some four-cylinder snarl, but it’s rather loud under throttle, and it can drone in the mid-rpm range. Fortunately, if you’re cruising on the highway, it’s very quiet. The rest of the truck is just like any Ranger. The turbo engine is responsive and has great low and mid-range torque. The transmission is just average, shifting relatively smoothly, but not quickly. The cabin is fairly quiet, though it feels a tad small, and the plastics feel cheap. Roush's diamond-stitched leather seats are a nice improvement, though it would’ve been nice to see Roush do a little more to spruce up the interior. The exterior is a nice balance of more butch cues …
