Once you start beefing up your 2019-2020 Ford Ranger for a more aggressive, off-road appearance, the OEM exhaust system won't quite fit your new build. Its soft sound is too ordinary for an aftermarket modified truck, so why not change up the sound with a new cat-back exhaust system? While cat-backs don't do much for performance, they come in handy to modify your Ranger's sound. Whether you want a roaring boom or a stealthy whir, you'll find many levels of noise to suit your liking. Besides your preference of sound decibel, do you prefer an unfinished or black powder coated tip? What about a 304 stainless steel, 409 stainless steel or an aluminized steel construction? Lastly, you can either pick a 2019-2020 Ford Ranger Single-Exit Cat-Back Exhaust System or a 2019-2020 Ford Ranger Dual-Exit Cat-Back Exhaust System. Many different manufacturers have crafted unique mufflers, resonators and piping to ensure you have proper airflow and sound. Consider sound level, type of material, and exit-type before making an educated purchase.

2019-2020 Ford Ranger Cat-Back Sound Options

When selecting a cat-back, consider the type of sound you would like. Do you want a mild sound with low interior drone, moderate sound and mild drone, or aggressive sound and moderate drone? While each component contributes to your exhaust sound, the muffler makes a big impact on the finished product. If you're concerned about disrupting your neighbors, then a more conservative but refined 2019-2020 Ford Ranger 2.3L EcoBoost Roush Dual Exit Cat-Back Exhaust Kit is what you need. With a unique Roush exhaust note, your Ranger will stand out from the crowd. Its nice tone ensures that your sound isn't obnoxiously loud and you never have to worry about breaking any noise laws. A moderate sound with mild drone can be attributed to the 2019-2020 Ford Ranger 2.3L Ecoboost Magnaflow Street Series Cat-Back Exhaust System (Polished Tip). This Magnaflow exhaust produces a smooth and deep tone because of its perforated stainless steel core, mesh wrap and acoustical fiber fill. Vibration and harsh noise can be filtered out, leaving behind a smooth, throaty growl. If a deep, raspy sound is what you desire, then the 2019-2020 Ford Ranger 2.3L EcoBoost Flowmaster FlowFX Cat-Back Exhaust System provides exactly that. Utilizing a FlowFX straight-through muffler, the system creates a deep powerful sound outside the vehicle but only a moderate tone inside the cab so you aren't also deafened. It is sure to turn many heads as you roar on by.

2019-2020 Ford Ranger 304 vs 409 Stainless Steel Cat-Back Kits

Whether you want a 304 or 409 stainless steel construction can really make a difference. While both are acceptable choices for an exhaust system, make sure you know the differences first. A 409 steel construction uses a softer metal and therefore can be more vulnerable to damage. 304 steel features a more premium design with enhanced strength and durability, but will generally be more of a financial investment. One of the finest 409 stainless steel exhaust systems you can acquire is the 2019-2020 Ford Ranger 2.3L EcoBoost aFe Apollo GT Series Cat-Back Exhaust Kit (Black Tips). The aFe cat-back features 409 stainless steel which resists corrosion in most environments and application. A favorite of the 304 options is the 2019-2020 Ford Ranger Borla S-Type Cat-Back Exhaust System - Dual Side Exit - Black Tip. The system's tough T-304 stainless steel can withstand rocky obstacles that off-road terrain always has.

2019-2020 Ford Ranger Aluminized Cat-Back Kits

If neither a 304 or 409 stainless steel cat-back strikes your fancy, then perhaps one with an aluminized steel construction is more up your alley. Aluminized cat-backs feature great functionality like their stainless steel counterparts, but for even more savings. However, aluminized cat-backs generally are not the most corrosive resistant against time and the elements. MBRP offers many excellent aluminized material exhausts, and you'll love the 2019-2020 Ford Ranger 2.3L EcoBoost MBRP Installer Series 3" Turn-Down Cat-Back Exhaust Kit (Aluminized) The cat-back features 3" diameter tubing that's all CNC mandrel-bent to fit perfectly on your Ranger and provide smooth exhaust outflow. Another option to consider is from our friends at SPD. The 2019-2020 Ford Ranger 2.3L EcoBoost SPD Cat-Back Exhaust System - Single Side Exit - Black Tip uses a tough stainless steel resonator and muffler. With a 3" tubed, aluminized steel construction, your cat-back kit will resonate toughness. The cat-backs will withstand abuse that you throw at it, but will rust in wetter climates or areas that use road salt compared to its stainless brothers.

2019-2020 Ford Ranger Single Exit or Dual Exit Cat-Back Kits

Do you want a single or dual exit tips on your kit? Either doesn't have much performance upgrade over the other. When it comes down to it, both ultimately expel exhaust created from the EcoBoost’s combustion process. However, style-wise, they'll look much different poking out from the underside of your Ranger. Single-exit kits feature a single protruding tip and pipe for a clean look. A 2019-2020 Ford Ranger 2.3L EcoBoost MBRP Black-Series 3" Single-Exit Cat-Back Exhaust Kit (Aluminized with Powder Coat) is just about as clean as they get. This features a single-exit tailpipe that exits in the factory location behind the rear passenger tire to give your Ranger a great look. For more uniqueness, you'll love the 2019-2020 Ford Ranger AWE Tuning 0FG Dual Exit Cat-Back Crawler Conversion Exhaust Kit with Chrome Tips. The slash-cut, 4.5" diameter dual tips beautifully expels exhuast out of both ends. MBRP also offers another dual tipped variant with their 2019-2020 Ford Ranger 2.3L EcoBoost MBRP Black Series 3" Cat-Back, Dual Split Rear Exit Exhaust System (Black Tip), but it differs with its split tubing design. This split 2.5" diameter tubing diverges from a single tube that exits your muffler. Because of the split design, the tips end up on opposite ends of your truck's rear. Additionally, you must decide if you want your tips to be unfinished or to have a black powdercoat. The powdercoat adds corrosion resistance, but the classic unfinished metal shines bright.
