The new Ford Ranger will be among the best equipped pick-ups in its class as well as one of the most competitively priced, when it goes on sale next month. Priced from just £10,982, two of the new Ranger models are actually reduced in price from the outgoing models.
"We're introducing the new Ranger with the same price or at a lower price than previous models because we know that the Ranger customer wants an exceptional package and unbeatable value," said Steve Parker, commercial vehicles director, Ford of Britain.
"The UK pick-up market is up around 60 per cent on last year and the new Ranger XLT and Super Cab models are particularly well equipped to compete in this growing segment. This Ranger is for people who need off-road capability without compromising on style," he added.
Key enhancements for new Ranger are: ABS as standard on all 4x4s, remote locking on Super and Double Cabs, improved brakes, ride, handling and NVH. Plus improved towing capability – up to 2800kg from 2200kg on 4x4 models.
Every new Ford Ranger is protected by 12 months unlimited mileage manufacturer's warranty, plus, starting from the date of registration, a three years/60,000 miles Ford Protect Plan including three years RAC cover. New Ranger also has a 12 months anti-corrosion warranty and cover against perforation from inside out, caused by faulty manufacture or materials, for six years from the delivery date.
Since its launch in 1999, Ranger has become established as a class leader in several key respects, including carrying capacity and ride and handling.Ranger Prices
