Ford gets tough with its Ranger pick-up.
This latest generation Ranger will be up for grabs in three cab bodystyles - Double, Super and Regular - along with an extensive list of practical features that are available across XL, XLT, Limited and Wildtrak models. . New from the ground up, the Ranger now delivers more payload and towing capability than before and will also come in 4x2 and 4x4 drivetrains.
In the Double Cab, three adults can easily fit in the second row and two sixfooters can sit one behind the other, while there are 23 storage spaces in the cabin - including a glovebox large enough to accommodate a 16-in laptop.
Three new engines are available, led by a new 3.2 litre five-cylinder diesel with fuel consumption ranging from 28.3mpg on a 4x4 manual transmission variant to 28.7mpg on a full-option 4x4 automatic model. There's also a 2.2-litre diesel.
Ford says the new Ranger's towing and water-wading capabilities are at the top of the segment and for those aiming to go off the beaten track, its off-road capability has been enhanced by an all-new front differential, upgraded rear axle and lower overall ratios.
