BT Fleet Ltd has taken delivery of 60 Ford Ranger 4x4 Super Cab pick-ups for use in maintaining radio transmitters on remote hilltop sites.
They are among the first of the new model to be delivered to a fleet customer, and are all being equipped with Truckman tops, internal racking and an in-cab stowage box for tools.
The new Ranger 4x4 Super Cabs were chosen primarily for their whole life cost and for their combination of off-road ability, on-road handling and comfort. Most of the mileage they cover will be on-road, including motorways, but some will be to remote off-road locations around the UK.
Features of the new Ranger 4x4 Super Cab include ABS as standard, remote locking, improved brakes, ride, handling and NVH and the ability to tow 2,800kg.
The pillarless Super Cab features reverse-hinged, counter-opening rear doors that eliminate the B pillar between the front and rear doors – and the rear doors cannot be opened without the front doors, helping to provide greater in-cab security for tools and equipment.Published 15 January 2003
