The all-new RANGER
The Ford Ranger has been ruthlessly tested in some of the most hostile environments, under extreme temperatures, and across the harshest terrain on earth.
The vehicle has impressive extra power, delivered by a line-up of advanced Duratorq diesel engines, which can help you transport a payload of up to 1,340 kg and tow up to 3,500 kg. At the same time, the engines provide improved fuel economy while meeting Euro Stage V emissions standards.
The Ranger is the first pick-up ever to achieve a prestigious Euro NCAP 5-star safety rating too. Find out more about the Ranger’s safety levels, driving experience, performance and efficiency, utility and costs and design.
Selectable 4x4 lets you match any terrain
You’ve a choice of three driving modes: 4x2 for regular driving, 4x4 (High Range) for poor road surfaces and dirt tracks and 4x4 (Low Range) for exceptionally challenging terrain. The fact that the Ranger clears the ground by 229mm also helps it overcome the most difficult conditions.
Using Electronic Shift-On-The-Fly you can switch between 4x2 and 4x4 High Range, while on the move. The system works in conjunction with Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) and Electronic Traction Control (ETC).
The Ranger adapts to fit your driving style
Select one of three modes: Normal, Performance, or Performance with manual shift. As you drive Ranger's intelligent automatic transmission with Advanced Driver Recognition software monitors your driving behaviour and progressively delivers a more tailored driving experience. The software ‘learns’ the driver’s style and matches the use of the transmission with it.
Additionally the transmission will detect driving situations - for example uphill, downhill, cornering, towing - and ensure that up or down changes are held to the best possible moment to assist control and responsiveness.
Easier, safer reversing with a rear-view camera
As standard on Wildtrak (optional on Limited), the rear-facing camera displays the view behind on a screen incorporated in the rear-view mirror. This can make reversing far easier and safer and shows the tow bar for easy reversing up to a trailer.
Sensors that take the stress out of parking
When the Ranger is in reverse (without a trailer), the radio sounds a warning if an object is located within 1.8m of the rear of the vehicle. The frequency of its beeping indicates how close the object is, making it easy to avoid. (Standard on Limited and Wildtrak).
Cruise control makes longer drives more relaxed
Just set your desired speed via switches on the steering wheel, and let cruise control make travelling long distances less tiring. (Standard on XLT, Limited and Wildtrak).
A Trip Computer provides useful journey data
This gives you important information about your mileage, fuel consumption, speed and the outside air temperature. It also includes ‘distance to empty’: roughly how far you can go on the fuel left in the tank. This is particularly useful on long journeys or out in the wilderness somewhere.
In-dash Satellite Navigation makes sure you get there
Just programme your destination using the in-dash buttons and get audio and visual directions, plus information about your current location and the surrounding area. The SatNav is cleverly integrated into the audio system for security. (Standard on Wildtrak, optional on Limited).
