Ford Ranger Spec Updates Announced

Ford Ranger New February 2013

Ford South Africa has announced additional value offerings and specification updates on certain Ranger derivatives, including all XLS models.

The XLS models receive additional standard features which include Bluetooth with Voice Control, Steering Wheel Audio Controls as well as Cruise Control. Exterior paint colours will no longer include the Thunder but will see an addition of a new Oyster Silver.

All Ranger models also feature a solid rear window where previously Base, XL and XLS models had a sliding rear window. This change means that all Double Cab models will have a three-point seatbelt in the centre of the rear seat where before this was a two-point seat belt. The Double Cabs will also no longer be fitted with under seat stowage bin lids, but the lids will be available as an accessory should the customer require them.

In addition, ESP will be available as a standard feature on the following models:

Ford Ranger 2.2 110kW XLS 4x4 6MT Single Cab Diesel – R338 400

Ford Ranger 3.2 XLS 4x4 6MT Single Cab Diesel – R378 400

Ford Ranger 2.2 HP XLS 4x4 6MT Double Cab Diesel – R377 900

The new Ford Ranger won the 2013 International Pick-Up Award last year where it was praised for its engine line-up, payload capacity, towing capacity, safety and performance both on and off the road.

It is offered in three body styles namely Double, Super and Regular and is available with the choice of two Duratorq TDCi engines and either as a 4X2 or a 4X4, and features a five star Euro NCAP safety rating.
