The 3.2 TDCi units are available in 4x2 and 4x4 guise, both offered in XLS specification and mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
The 3.2 Duratorg TDCi five-cylinder diesel produces 147kW of power and a torque figure of 470Nm with fuel consumption rated at 9.3 litres/100km on a combined cycle. Emissions are measured at 245g/km on both the 4x2 and 4x4 models.
The 4x4 model has a towing capacity of 3350kg when fitted with the range topping diesel engine. Both derivatives can achieve 800mm wade depth at a speed of 7 km/h.
Load box volume is 1.82m, and pockets above the wheel wells and along the side of the box allow owners to use timber inserts to carry full sheets of plasterboard or plywood.
“The Ranger has been designed to cater to a wide spectrum of customers. Both fleet buyers and small business owners will now be able to take advantage of the greater selection of models on offer while enjoying the quality, fuel efficiency, safety and smart technology that have made the Ranger such a popular choice with South African consumers.” said Gavin Golightly, Ford Marketing Manager.
