2019 Ford Ranger Research | Joe Cotton Ford Carol Stream

The best way to find out why the new Ranger is so impressive is to simply compare it to the competition. We will do just that with our 2019 Ford Ranger vs 2019 Honda Ridgeline, head to head model comparison. The Ridgeline has been trying to convince people that it is a capable truck since it came back a few years ago, but now the Ranger is back to put it in its place.

 

Our Joe Cotton Ford team wants to help you answer that question today – we've put some research together on the 2019 Ranger and Ridgeline models, and we invite you to join us as we take you through the top features and capabilities of each!


There are a lot of mid-size trucks out there for you to choose from. But no matter how many choices there are out there, there’s only one right choice, and that’s the 2019 Ford Ranger. Thanks to its best-in-class capabilities and features, you’ll see the new Ford Ranger is the only choice for anyone that depends on their truck day in and day out.

 

In practically every dimension, the 2019 Ford Ranger comes out on top. Now consider this: the Honda Ridgeline’s starting MSRP lands over $5,000 more than the 2019 Ford Ranger. When you set the specs side by side, even considering the Ridgeline as a worthy contender seems ludicrous.

I went to Joe Cotton Ford to buy a 2019 Ford Edge because I liked the way they treated me when I bought a new Mustang last year. They really do treat you right like no other dealer I've ever dealt with before. Salesman Jason Conn truly cares about the customer, finding the exact car I wanted through dealer trade. I used to dread car buying in the past from other dealerships but I don't at Cotton Ford.

The service department treated me and my ailing Ford Focus just like royalty. The clutch, transmission control module, and fuel system recall were all replaced in a timely manner.

I rarely go to a dealer. None of my 4 cars are in warranty so I do most of the work myself. When it is something I cannot do I have a friend who is a private mechanic and he solves the rest of the problems. My 2005 Ford GT was a special case and needed an expert to help with my issues. I am lucky enough to know Dave Malloy, Joe Cottons Service Manager and he encouraged me to bring the car down and he and his SVT certivfied mechanic Todd would help me out. I could not have been more pleased with the whole experience. I was treated like Royalty! My car received the best care of possible. It was fixed promply and properly. The charges were very much in line with the high quality of service I received. Dave was also MOST gracious in taking me around and interducing me the whole support team at Joe Cotton. Including Pam who runs the whole operation. I was impressed to say the least. Although I hope I don't need any serious service in the near future I will definately go back to Joe Cotton Ford when any events occur that require service for my Ford GT. I am convinced that they are the best. Also, should I need a new vehicle. Joe Cotton will be my first stop. I know the great treatment would continue. Sincerely Karl Ayer
