All-New Ford Ranger
All-New Ford Ranger
The Ford Ranger has been one of Ford’s most successful workhorses. Its ever-willing attitude to get the job done has earned it a huge distinction among its fans the world over. Now in an even more modern and powerful form the all-new Ranger is set to carve its mark with enhanced capability and refinement that truly sets it apart.
The new 2016 Ford Ranger establishes new benchmarks in the pickup segment with an uncompromising blend of robust capability, craftsmanship and advanced technology. The Ranger is one of the toughest, most capable pickups out there. Its impressive power and capabilities are made possible thanks to the latest generation of powerful and fuel-efficient diesel engines, as well as a petrol unit.
One look at the Ranger and you’ll notice a bold, more modern look that lends the new Ranger a powerful presence on the road, and immediately conveys a sense of capability.
The new Ford Ranger remains one of the most capable pickups in its class. With an exceptional 800mm water wading depth and 230mm ground clearance, it is engineered to handle the most extreme terrains with ease. Thanks to a 28-degree approach angle and 25-degree departure angle, drivers in the new Ranger can feel confident when taking on steep obstacles.
A robust electronically controlled transfer case allows drivers in 4x4 models to shift on the fly from 4x2 to 4x4 high via a knob on the centre console. For low-speed torque or additional downhill control, drivers can also engage low-range 4x4 gearing, while an electronic locking rear differential# (Available from January 2016 production) helps to improve traction in difficult conditions. These off-road strengths are matched to a towing capability of up to 3500kg and impressive payload capacity.
The new Ranger achieves all this with a level of refinement not usually seen in the pickup segment. While the current Ranger already sets the standard for ride and handling, Ford engineers fine-tuned the suspension of the new version for additional comfort and even better handling.
The driving experience is further enhanced by an electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) system1 (Available in Wildtrak only), which provides precise steering with a natural and confident feel. Furthermore, by eliminating the power steering pump used in a traditional power-steering system, EPAS also results in a quieter vehicle and improves fuel efficiency by about three per cent.
Engineers fitted the new Ranger with advanced sound-deadening materials and improved insulation for one of the quietest and most comfortable cabin interiors in its class.
A host of cutting-edge technologies are available on the new Ford Ranger to help drivers stay connected and in control. SYNC®2, the latest generation of Ford’s in-car connectivity system, gives drivers smarter and safer ways to stay connected and is standard on the new Ranger Wildtrak.
