The Ford Ranger is a practical and powerful pick-up truck that is available in a range of flexible body styles. The vehicle can be selected in XL (Regular Cab, Super Cab and Double Cab), XLT, Limited (Super Cab and Double Cab) and Wildtrak (Double Cab) trims.
The rough, tough and stylish Ranger features a muscularly sculpted body, adorned with colour-coded features such as front bumpers. Labour-saving fixtures such as electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors are standard inclusions, as are daytime running lights, rear fog lamps and a high-mounted brake light. Depending on the body style selected minimum (maximum) payloads and towing capacities are 967kg (1,269kg) and 1,800kg (3,500kg).
XLT grades add 16-inch alloy wheels and chrome-finish door mirrors (foldable and heated) and door handles.
Inside the Ranger, the driver benefits from height-adjustable and lumbar-supporting seating, adjustable head restraints and a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel.
Other standard features include power-operated front windows (one-touch on the driver’s side) and power-assisted steering.
XLT trims also provide cruise control and air-conditioning.
Two diesel engine options are available for the Ranger. Entry-level XL grades are issued with a 2.2-litre 158bhp unit that produces 385Nm of torque. It also returns as much as 42.2mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 177g/km. Limited trims (also standard with Wildtrak grades) feature a 3.2-litre 197bhp engine that produces 470Nm of torque. Either option is paired with a six-speed manual gearbox. Double Cab Limited grades and above can be specified with six-speed automatic transmission.
The Ranger comes with DAB digital radio, Bluetooth connectivity and USB and AUX ports as standard.
XLT trims additionally feature an AM/FM radio and a CD player, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, a 4.2-inch screen and Ford SYNC (including Voice Control and AppLink).
While the Ranger is undoubtedly a strong performer, it is also very safe, and has accordingly been awarded a five-star rating by Euro NCAP. Safety features include Electronic Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System, Emergency Brake Warning, multiple airbags, seatbelt reminders and a collapsible steering column.
