So I have been driving a 2018 Flex with the ecoboost 2.0 turbo while my STA is getting some paint work done. The curb weight of the Flex is comparable to the T6 Ranger. This engine pulls like a banshee. The front wheels just claw for grip. I can only assume the new Ranger will perform the same with this engine given the weight similarities. The rear end of the new Ranger is still butt ass ugly, but the motor it is getting sure is nice.
