Each year, Cars.com compiles its American-Made Index, which ranks vehicles by how much they contribute to the U.S. economy. In 2020, the Ford Ranger earned the number-one spot and bested 90 other models. After all, what’s more American than this fun pickup truck?
Cars.com created its 2020 list based on five individual factors: where a vehicle is assembled, where its engines come from, where its parts are sourced, where its transmissions originate, and the number of people employed in U.S. factories, relative to the automaker’s manufacturing.
The 2020 Ford Ranger is equipped with the 270-horsepower 2.3-liter EcoBoost®. This engine is built at the Cleveland Engine Plant in Ohio. Meanwhile, its crankshaft, block and head are built at the Romeo Engine Plant located in Michigan.
In addition to making contributions to the economy, the 2020 Ford Ranger is also a powerful and capable midsize pickup that more than earns its accolades. When properly equipped, it can tow 7,500 pounds, deliver a best-in-class maximum payload rating of 1,860 pounds and achieve a best-in-class gas torque rating of 310 lb-ft.
