2019 Ford Ranger FX4 SuperCrew – S:S:L Review

Sometimes, it’s OK to start a story in the middle. Just ask Ford.

The 2019 Ranger is not new, but it’s new to us. The underlying engineering was handled by Ford of Australia, and the truck was first introduced back in 2011. Ford has been selling it all over the world ever since. Well, almost all over the world. The U.S. and Canada were left out of the party. Until now, that is.

There are upsides to this. While the Ranger may be “old” by passenger car standards, its age means Ford has had time to refine and improve it. Thus, the version we finally got for the 2019 model year should be the best Ranger Ford has built.

Photo Gallery: All The Wonderful Toys at Porsche North Houston

I recently stopped by Porsche North Houston to check out a 981 Porsche Cayman S that had popped up for sale. I met Efan Hsu who first gave me a tour around the dealership and all their wonderful toys. Porsche North Houston is one part automotive showroom, and one part Porsche museum. There are so many incredible vehicles on display (all for sale) that your jaw will stay on the floor until long after you’ve left.

This is an extremely enthusiast-oriented dealership, and I cannot say enough nice things about Efan and the rest of the Porsche North Houston staff. They are the most welcoming and customer service oriented sales team I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Check out these beautiful machines of Porsche North Houston!
