Car-buying with a first-time driver is a rite of passage. It’s a bittersweet time full of change, excitement, and maybe a little apprehension, too. Our team at Stockfish Ford helps families think through their wants and needs, narrow down their options, and choose a vehicle that makes sense for all parties involved.

The Ford Ranger is a great choice for first-time drivers. With three models to choose from, the Ranger provides comfortable interiors and versatile cargo space, fun technologies, and safety features that inspire confidence for the journey ahead.

Interiors & Cargo Space

No matter where your journey takes you, comfort is key! With an emphasis on form and function, the Ranger provides comfortable and supportive bucket seating, with seating for up to five in the spacious four-door SuperCrew.

Need to know what’s happening? The 8-inch center touchscreen and dual LCD instrument cluster provide helpful and easy-to-read data, keeping you in the know on every single trip.

Depending on your choice, SuperCab provides bucket seats up front for two and a bench seat in the rear, which includes room for under-seat storage. In the XL model, you can choose to have the bench seat removed for extra cargo space. The SuperCab comes with a 6-foot bed to provide plenty of room for all your gear. The Ranger SuperCrew is a bit more spacious, with four full-size doors, seating for up to five, and rear under-seat storage. A 5-foot bed allows plenty of room for all that you can’t leave behind.

Ask one of our sales team members about accessories to personalize your truck. If you like heading out in the wild, outfit it for gear like trail bikes, kayaks, and ATVs. Or protect your investment with bed liners and off-road lights. We’ve got something for everyone.


The Ranger is built for taking you anywhere you might want to go, but you don’t have to sacrifice staying connected.

Voice-activated SYNC 3 and FordPass Connect allow you all the comforts of your smartphone: contacts, playlists, podcasts, and navigation systems, plus available 4G LTE in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot capability for up to 50 feet outside the truck. Connect up to 10 devices at once and use the FordPass app to keep track of your data usage. Connectivity is guaranteed, no matter how far you roam.

Worried about keeping a charge? Don’t be - two smart-charging USB ports are included with the available voice-activated Navigation System.

Every journey needs a soundtrack. You won’t miss a beat with the available B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen. With 10 premium speakers and 660 watts of amplified power, you are guaranteed to rock it any way you want it - in style!

As another feature that creates comfort for sending first-time drivers out on the road, Roadside Assistance is available directly through the FordPass App via a call or e-request. If you need us, we are there for services like fuel delivery, flat-tire service, and more.

Safety Features

High-strength steel frame and frame-mounted steel bumpers aren’t the only safety features standard on the Ford Ranger.

Driver-assistance technologies like the Ford Co-Pilot360 make drivers feel more confident behind the wheel. Be sure to ask our sales team which of these features are standard on the model in which you’re interested. Safety features include:

    • Blind Spot Information System. If a vehicle enters your blind spot, our sensors detect it and illuminate a small light in the corresponding side-view mirror. You never have to take your eyes off the road ahead before making a safe lane change again.

    • Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support. This is the cruise control that you’re used to - just kicked up a notch. Set your preferred cruising speed and the distance you’d like to keep between your vehicle and the traffic ahead, then let our system maintain both. If traffic ahead of you slows or comes to an abrupt stop, Forward Collision Warning systems will activate and alert you to slow down. If you take no action, Brake Support will gently slow your vehicle.

    • Lane-Keeping System. Inadvertently veering from your detected lane happens to everyone. This system warns you to refocus on the road ahead. Gentle correction from our Lane-Keeping System helps guide and center your vehicle back in your lane. If the system detects that you’re veering from your lane multiple times, you’ll receive a suggestion that a coffee break or a stretch of the legs may be a smart idea.
