Ford South Africa has bolstered its Ranger lineup with the addition of nine 2.2 TDCi automatic derivatives, bringing the total number of Ranger models to 36.
The Ford Ranger is hugely popular in South Africa and the introduction of a 6-speed automatic transmission for the 2.2-litre TDCi models will inevitably increase the Ranger’s appeal to more consumers. A total of nine additional derivatives have been added to the range in single cab, super cab and double cab body styles. The 2.2-litre TDCi engine offers 118 kW and 385 Nm of torque and the Ford Ranger 2.2 TDCi double cab derivatives also happen to be the most fuel efficient in South Africa.
"We are delighted to now introduce this sophisticated automatic transmission to the Ranger 2.2 TDCi, providing unparalleled comfort and driving convenience, matched to the superb performance and efficiency of Ford's latest generation Duratorq diesel engines."
New Ford Ranger derivatives
The Ranger 2.2 TDCi single cab auto is currently the only single cab automatic bakkie on offer in South Africa. Two new automatic models have been added to the single cab mix and these include the 2.2 TDCi 4x2 XL and the higher specification 4x4 XLS derivative.
The super cab offering now welcomes three new automatic derivatives including the 2.2 TDCi 4x2 XL as well as the XLS model available as a 4x2 or 4x4.
Four new Ranger automatic double cabs join the range in the form of the 2.2 TDCi XL 4x2 and 4x4 double cab. For more features, you can now also consider the 4x4 XLS and the 4x2 XLT automatic derivatives.
