Prices for the next-generation Ford Ranger have been announced, with rises from $240 to $2,240 over the current model. Deliveries start in June.
Ford has finally shown its hand by announcing the pricing of the next-generation Ford Ranger ahead of first deliveries in June.
The new platform will be shared with Volkswagen (in the form of the Amarok), but Ford will be first to market - that’s a huge advantage and will put Ford in the driver’s seat for the hugely popular ute market.
With the outgoing Ford Ranger falling to sixth in the March VFACTS sales data as dealers sold-down existing stock, the challenge for Ford now will be to ensure the demand can be met by supply from the Thailand-based factory.
Ford dealers are reporting massive interest in the next-gen vehicle, which can officially be ordered as of now.
That’s no surprise given the Ranger and Toyota HiLux have traded blows as the most popular ute (and vehicle) sold in Australia over the past couple of years … and this iteration of the Ranger ups the game considerably.
Standard equipment on the new Ranger will include nine airbags, a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a digital driver’s display and a range of car-like safety software, from autonomous emergency braking to adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist.
Pick-up variants will add reverse-parking sensors and a reversing camera.
All four-wheel-drive versions are fitted with a rear diff lock.
Top-end versions will see extra features including a 12-inch display screen, wireless phone charging, integrated trailer brake controller, underbody bash plates, powered and heated front seats and ambient interior lighting.
All models come with a 3.5-tonne braked towing capacity, excluding the Raptor, which is limited to 2.5-tonnes.
