Long story short? Yes, the 2019 Ford Ranger can be driven off-road. But there is so much more to it than just a simple yes or no answer on how this vehicle holds up when off-road. Check out some of the technologies and features that make this vehicle a prime choice for any off-road enthusiasts, or anyone who is looking for a sturdy midsized pickup truck.
FX4 Off-Road Package
The FX4 Off-Road Package has a variety of features that help the 2019 Ford Ranger in its off-roading endeavors. While getting scratches on an off-road vehicle can seem pretty much inevitable, it can be extremely frustrating and sometimes even dangerous for the undercarriage of the truck to get damaged. That’s why the Ford Ranger has bash and skid plates in this off-road package. These features can potentially help keep your vehicle from getting damaged.
To help with traction, you’ll have off-road tires with a unique tread pattern. This is paired with a screen that helps you keep an eye on the pitch, roll, and steering angle of the Ranger.

Off-road Driver-Assist Technologies
Electronic Locking Rear-Differential
: If you are constantly finding yourself in areas that may not have the best traction, then the Electronic Locking Rear-Deferential can help with that. This feature helps when you are driving at low speeds on low-traction surfaces. This includes slippery or steep ramps as well as muddy, snowy, or sandy surfaces.
: Cruise control, brought to your off-roading expeditions. This is an optional technology feature that allows the user to have a consistent speed between one and twenty miles per hour.
Terrain Management System™
: This feature brings four different driving modes to you; Mud Ruts, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Sand, and Normal.
Other Driver-Assist Technologies
There are other driver-assist technologies in this vehicle that are more suited for situations that aren’t off-road. These include things like the Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control, and a Lane-Keeping System. Again, these are more for when you are driving on the road. Still, they have the potential to be very helpful as you navigate roads to and from your off-road destinations.
