Ever since we first talked about the official return of the Ranger we’ve been champing at the bit to get actual information from Ford about what this new model was going to include. The blue oval has finally delivered with the official unveiling of the 2019 Ford Ranger. Designed and engineered in Australia for international markets and then customized for the U.S. markets, this new midsize pickup truck is almost purpose built for the guy looking for a comfortable daily driver with enough capacity and off-road capability for a weekend of fun or projects. Right now, Ford only has plans to offer the 2019 Ranger with a single power package—2.3L turbocharged EcoBoost mated to a new 10-speed automatic transmission—but that’s more than enough get up and go to make this truck worthwhile. In terms of tech, you’ll find driver assist, terrain management, blind spot detection, optional Wi-Fi hotspot and an in-dash screen. The new Ford Ranger will be available in early 2019 with three trim models (XL, XLT, Lariat), along with plenty of options in the Chrome, Sport and FX4 off-road packages.

In short, this is a key-shaped multi-tool built of stainless steel that has all of the tools you need for everyday repairs for everything from light switches to bicycles. Bit driver. Protractor. Metric and Imperial rulers. Imperial and Metric closed wrenches. Bottle Opener. File. Scoring tip. Wire bender and bike spoke key. Wire stripper. Screwdrivers. 1/4 hex driver pocket. So you might need to throw in some hex bits for specific projects, but otherwise, the Geekey has you covered for almost all of your everyday repair needs. As if that wasn’t enough, the hexogon can also serve as a smoking bowl, with the shaft of the key hollowed out to serve as a pipe.
