Towing Technology

Today's trucks and SUVs provide more than just raw power to meet your towing needs. Below, you'll learn more about some of the advanced towing technologies found in the 2020 Ford Ranger.

BLIS® with Trailer Coverage

Ford has adapted their Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) to extend the Ranger's blind spot to include the trailer when you're towing. This feature is available in the 2020 Ranger XL, and standard on the Ranger XLT and Lariat.

Rear View Camera

Anybody who has experience with trailers knows how useful it would be to see the hitch and receiver from your cab. Not only does the standard rear view camera in the 2020 Ranger help when backing up your truck, but it will undoubtedly make backing up to trailers easier than ever.

Model Availability

All 2020 Ford Ranger models are standardly equipped with the 2.3L EcoBoost engine and 4x2 drivetrain. For more capability in less-than-ideal conditions, you can upgrade every Ranger trim option with a 4x4 drivetrain with electronic shift-on-the-fly transfer case.
