We've seen a couple versions of the coming 2019 Ford Ranger — both the and the — but now we can add one more after visiting the 2018 State Fair of Texas, which runs through Oct. 21 in Dallas. This 2019 Ford Ranger XLT with the STX Appearance Package was dressed to hit the beach or lagoon with surfboards and kayaks on the roof. The display vehicle had all the same underpinnings we've seen on Ford Rangers at the in Detroit and in Indianapolis.
Compared to other models we've seen, there's nothing really different about the STX, but we do like the bare-bones look and quality of the interior seats, dash and console area. And we hope Ford will eventually offer a manual transmission option.
Here's a closer look at what we saw at the 2018 State Fair of Texas.
