The Ranger will come in three trim levels - XL, XLT, and Lariat with optional LED lamps. The 2019 model has eight new wheel choices, some of them aligned with the F-150 for a brotherly feel. The truck comes in eight colors with optional chrome and Sport Appearance packages.

A terrain management system, a similar system found in the Raptor, includes four drive modes: Normal, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts, and Sand. A new Trail Control feature acts like a low-speed, off-road cruise control that can be set to 1 mph during very challenging parts of the trail. The FX4 off-road package has upgraded tires, a steel front bash plate, off-road-tuned suspension, reinforced skidplates, and Trail Control and Hill Descent Control. A two-speed transfer case and electronic locking rear differential are optional.

Driver assist safety features include blind-spot detection with trailer coverage, collision warning, lane keep assist and warning, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking. Sync 3 will be available with an 8.0-inch touchscreen.
