DUNTON, UK, Sept. 1, 2022 – Ford is opening the order books for the stunning all-new Ranger pickup, introducing the smartest, most capable and most versatile Ranger ever to European customers.
The launch of the popular Wildtrak and Limited models signals the arrival of the top-selling Ranger derivatives, and follows the earlier availability of the exclusive Ford Performance-developed all-new Ranger Raptor, which represents the pinnacle of the Ranger line-up.
All-new Ranger has been redesigned from the ground up to help customers do more and work smarter, and features a bold exterior design, new powertrain and driveline technologies including Ford’s 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine, upgraded chassis and suspension, enhanced cargo area, plus an inviting high-tech interior offering advanced connectivity and driver-assistance technologies.
The premium Ranger Wildtrak and high-specification Ranger Limited are offered in double cab body style, with customer deliveries expected to start from early 2023.
“Ranger is has become an icon in Europe with a new generation of customers who passionately believe that it’s ‘The Pickup’,” said Hans Schep, general manager, Ford Pro, Europe. “Ranger was already Europe’s go-to pickup, but we have used our global expertise in delivering must-have trucks for customers around the world to design and engineer a whole new level of ability into this exciting all-new model.”
Wildtrak variants accounted for 60 per cent of the previous-generation Ford Ranger sales, highlighting demand for pickups with comfort-enhancing specifications and the versatility to support customers as working tools and for leisure activities.
The all-new Ranger Wildtrak offers uncompromising capability by making Ford’s 3.0‑litre V6 turbodiesel engine 2 available to Ranger customers for the first time. Delivering 240 PS power and 600 Nm torque through a 10‑speed automatic gearbox, the powertrain enables effortless towing of up to 3,500 kg. 3
Turbocharged performance and optimised fuel-efficiency 4 are also delivered through Ford’s proven 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engines. Both Ranger Limited and Ranger Wildtrak can be specified with Ford’s 170 PS single-turbo 2.0-litre EcoBlue with six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearboxes, or a 205 PS bi-turbo 2.0-litre EcoBlue with a 10-speed automatic gearbox.
All-new Ranger also delivers standard advanced technologies for a refined, intuitive, engaging driving and user experience, in addition to greater off-road capability than ever before.
Six selectable drive modes 5 complement a chassis that is engineered for improved approach angles, off-road articulation, and ride quality on- and off‑road. Normal, Eco, Slippery, Mud/Ruts, Sand, and – for automatic transmissions – Tow Haul modes adjust parameters including power delivery, traction control, electronic stability control and gear-shift patterns to optimise performance for a variety of driving scenarios.
On- and off-road capability can be further optimised according to the customer’s needs with a choice of two four-wheel drive systems – an electronic shift-on-the-fly system, or an advanced new full-time four-wheel drive system with a reassuring set-and-forget mode, which is standard on Ranger Wildtrak models specified with the 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine.
