The Ford Ranger’s towing capacity ranges from 2250kg to 3000kg. Some models also offer heavy-duty or towing option packs which can increase towing capacity, as well as options which can hamper towing capacity. Towing capacities can vary wildly on a large number of factors. These include engine, transmission, model, and options chosen. Always check with the manufacturer or in your vehicles handbook before attempting to tow anything.

Ford Ranger 2009 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Ranger 2009 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Can I drive my '09 Ford Ranger 4x2 on the beach?
You could drive it on the beach, but it depends on the condition of the sand. If it’s hard packed you shouldn’t have any trouble, but if it’s soft you’re almost certain to get bogged. Best talk to the locals and get their opinion.
Shuddering clutch in Ford Ranger
Without knowing how many kays you have done in it I would guess the clutch is on the way out. Clutches in the one-tonners that have become so popular are typically marginal and some require replacement at quite mileage. Check the clutch, and if worn to the point of needing replacement look at installing a heavy-duty clutch.
Poor towing in Ford Ranger
It would seem something has gone wrong, perhaps at the service, as you seem to suggest. It's most likely a fuel supply problem, so I would suggest you have a diesel engine specialist check it.
Ford Ranger shudder
We have had reports of clutch troubles with the Ranger and the clutch in yours I would suggest has probably warped. They overheat quite quickly if you slip the clutch even just a little, like when you take off while the vehicles is loaded or towing a trailer, and once that happens the clutch warps and will forever shudder until it's replaced. I think Ford is clutching at straws on that one.
