2019 Ford Ranger EPA-Rated up to 21/26/23 MPG

Motortrend Magazine News - 17 hours 57 min ago

Official EPA numbers for the 2019 Ford Ranger were released today. The midsize truck is rated 21/26/23 mpg city/highway/combined when paired with rear-wheel drive.

That rating makes the Ranger the most fuel-efficient gas-powered midsize pickup in the U.S. In comparison, the 2019 Toyota Tacoma tops out at 20/23/21 mpg with the four-cylinder or 19/24/21 with the V-6. The 2019 Chevrolet Colorado maxes out at 20/26/22 with the four-cylinder gas engine. The diesel Colorado is naturally better on the highway than the Ranger but has the same combined rating, hitting 20/30/23 mpg. Meanwhile, the 2019 Honda Ridgeline puts out a respectable 19/26/22 mpg. With the 2019 Nissan Frontier, you’re looking at a max rating of 19/23/21 mpg. Of course, we’ll have to conduct our own Real MPG tests to confirm the Ranger’s EPA numbers translate to the real world.

With four-wheel drive, the Ranger’s fuel economy drops slightly to 20/24/22 mpg, according to the EPA. The Ranger comes with a standard 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine that makes 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. While it doesn’t have the most horsepower, it has more torque than any other gas engine in the midsize truck segment. The engine pairs with a 10-speed automatic transmission; no manual option will be available.

Ford began production on the new Ranger in Michigan this October. The model heads to dealerships in January with a starting price of $25,395. Right on its heels is the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, which is expected to hit the market during the second quarter of 2019.

New BMW 3 Series Wagon Not Coming to the U.S.

Motortrend Magazine News - Mon, 12/10/2018 - 6:26pm

If you were considering buying a brand new BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon based on the recently introduced G20 generation, you’re sadly out of luck. Well, if you live in America, anyway, as a G20 wagon will still be offered in Europe and other markets.

A report published today by CarBuzz suggests that there are no plans for the marque to bring such a long-roof version here, and a BMW North America spokesman confirmed the model’s fate to our colleagues at Automobile. “The existing 3 Series Sports Wagon in 330i xDrive guise will be the last opportunity for anyone [in the U.S.] to order and take delivery of a 3 Series Sports Wagon.”

In the U.S., that model packs a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. With crossover SUVs all the rage, the station wagon in general seems to be going the way of the manual transmission. Both remain popular with a cadre of hardcore enthusiasts—like us—but we were told last year that the wagon accounted for only 4 percent of all 3 Series sales, trailing the sedan and even Gran Turismo variants.

If you don’t grab an F31-generation wagon before they’re gone, the best options moving forward for a smaller, liftgate-equipped vehicle at BMW will be the X1, X2, and X3 crossovers—or a pre-owned wagon, of course. We have enjoyed spending time in the small and spunky X2, and the raucous BMW X3 M40i as well, but neither is a station wagon.

The upcoming seventh-generation 3 Series is lighter, longer, and wider than before, and BMW promises it will also be more fun to drive. The sedan version goes on sale in March starting at $41,195. Our First Drive review of the 2019 3 Series sedan publishes tomorrow, so be sure to check back.
