The all new Ford Ranger makes its worldwide debut today at the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney. The Ford Ranger will reach European customers by 2012.
The new Ford Ranger has more power, capability and features with a comfortable and spacious interior. Technologies and features include a new rear-view camera system, Voice Control, Trailer Sway Control and Adaptive Load Control. The new Ford Ranger will be available in three different cab body styles, 4x2 and 4x4 drivetrains, two ride heights and four series choices.
The Ford Ranger is powered by a choice of two new fuel-efficient state-of-the-art common rail Ford Duratorq TDCi diesels and new fuel-efficient six-speed automatic and manual transmissions. Add in more chassis and safety technologies, and the story of Ranger pickup leadership becomes as vivid as its powerful, purposeful stance. The all-new Ford Ranger four-wheel drive models are equipped with a well-proven electronically controlled transfer case that allows drivers to shift from 4x2 to 4x4 anytime via an electronic switch conveniently located on the console. If extra torque or additional downhill braking is needed, low range gearing can also be enabled.
The new Ford Ranger will be manufactured at three sites with production ramp-up scheduled to begin next summer.
