Designed for capability. Made for every terrain. Built tough.
The New Ranger is a built-for-purpose pick-up truck: a commercial vehicle that’s smarter, safer and more efficient than ever before.
Class-leading towing ability is matched by a large payload and impressive wading depth, so it’s as hardworking as it is dependable… even under the most extreme conditions.
Engine upgrades ensure the New Ranger delivers power and performance, along with outstanding fuel efficiency and low emissions.
Capability and refinement
The Ford Ranger remains one of the most capable trucks in its class. With a class-leading ability to wade through water up to 800 mm deep, and with 230 mm of ground clearance, it is designed and 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 with a knob on the center console. For low-speed torque or additional downhill braking, drivers can also engage low-range 4x4 gearing, while an electronic locking rear differential helps to improve traction in difficult conditions. These off-road strengths are matched by towing capability of up to 3,500 kg and exceptional payload capacity.
The Ranger achieves all this with a level of refinement not usually seen in the pickup truck segment. While the current Ranger already sets the standard for ride and handling, Ford engineers fine-tuned its suspension for additional comfort and even better handling.
The driving experience is further enhanced by an electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) system, which provides precise steering with a natural and confident feel. With EPAS, steering is light and manageable for low-speed maneuvering, such as parking, and precise at higher speeds - with assistance varying as necessary based on speed, steering wheel angle, cornering forces and acceleration or deceleration. 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 percent.
Engineers also 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.
As well as being strong, this is a pick-up truck that’s smart: a series of state-of-the-art technologies includes Ford SYNC 2 connectivity, Lane Keeping Aid, Adaptive Cruise Control and Driver Alert.
Add intelligent design, fresh, modern styling and high-quality materials and the New Ranger equates to an impressive package all-round.
The New Ranger is available to order now and test drive from early 2016.
