Ford Ranger


The all-new 2013 Ranger has been redesigned, it appear to have blunt but it is surprisingly aerodynamic. This truck is now stronger and delivers payload and class-leading towing along with an innovative, new comfort and assist the driver.

The Ford Ranger is a vehicle a unitary steel body on a frame, suspended by leaf and a live axle at the rear. By car standards that sounds but for a pick-up expected to carry loads on a flat load bay down severely rutted tow several tonnes and have the articulation for proper off-roading, it s convention and the best technological available.

The Ranger is offered a three-round cabin body Regular Cab, Double Cab and Cab, which are among the spacious in its class, the last more of a two-plus-two set-up the Double Cab; comes a choice of two powerful and economical TDCi diesel engine and formulas 4×2 (front drive) and 4×4 (drive axles).

A Regular Cab Ranger has the most carrying capacity, with a load bay that can accommodate than 1800 litres of cargo weighing just 1.3 tonnes if needs be.

Underneath, the s frame is longer and wider before. It s twice as stiff, and is mounted to the body via hydraulic rubber bushes for the best rolling refinement. Front switches from torsion to coil-overs and wishbones, again for ride tuning.

There s now insulation in the doors, underbody and and double door seals for wind insulation.

The Ranger is the first pick-up to score a EuroNCAP crash test All this is intended to make it agreeable to passenger car tax exiles.

comes from a choice of four-cylinder and 3.2-litre five-cylinder engines, developed from found in the Transit range. drive through the rear unless you switch to four-wheel which you can do at up to 70mph. There s a transfer case too, reduction gearing of 2.48:1 but no rear differential.

Ford claims its latest control system is good to do the job of an old-fashioned lockable diff.

the 2013 Ford Ranger similar ergonomics as the North Focus sedan. The center is simple, sparse, and easy to with as only three control knobs and an AM/FM are present. Storage space is in the T6 Ranger with two spots to a cellphone, wallet, or other gear in the center stack

The instrument cluster is clean and with only the essential fuel, oil temperature, and speedometer up space behind the steering A digital odometer sits both the fuel and oil temperature while being book-ended by the and speedometer.

The material mix isn t quite the of a high-end Focus, but it s rich to avoid any commercial impression and the pick-up standard. Fixtures and are solid and sensibly sized, in to allow operation while thick gloves.

It has four seats in two sitting Passenger space is fine and as in both rows as a medium-sized car. There are lots storage solutions, too. The air centre cubby is big enough for a of drinks cans and the glovebox is for a 16in laptop.

The rear cushions also lift to a large storage box.

that storage box and the 1.5m-long bay, there s little you could carry in a large car or SUV that you couldn t in the Ranger. s no load-through facility, but longer could be lashed to the roof of a car so equipped. There s also a rated to carry 200kg, so you have no qualms about on to it to reach a bag or box.

It s quiet at and at fairly low revs, and its vibrations are well under control, but the Puma five-pot in this is still obviously a Ford unit. It pulls with force from just 1000rpm, but even when it to emit a few multi-cylinder harmonics up its vocal range, you know it ll be gasping for breath before comes and goes.

Easy pulling power is this powertrain is specified to and that it achieves very Torque peaks at 347lb ft, but ft is on offer between 1300rpm and Which means, once you ve got the rolling and up into fifth and it s a surprisingly effortless drive.

will you need to change – be that to climb, or just accelerate on the motorway.

Don t this for a fast car, but it s not slow, either. A sub-11sec time would have competitive with a big four-cylinder, 4 4 not so long ago. The most statistic is that cracking in fourth takes 11.7sec just a second slower it will take if you trawl the gears instead.

Should running costs priority over performance, the 2.2-litre diesel is worth It is available with either 123 or We found the latter to be a strong owing to its 277lb ft of torque whilst some way off the 3.2 s headline is still enough to make progress.Whichever engine you choose, it s to think of the six-speed gearbox as a with a dog-leg first.

The first gear is so short it s only really useful off and for towing.

The shift quality is though. It s elastic, heavy and and at times can feel more you re forcing a dislocated limb into its socket than to select another gear. But s one entirely tolerable shortcoming in a car in most other respects, like a slightly heavier-duty 4 4.

In the new Ranger, Ford has created a vehicle that not only its rivals on pick-up considerations as carrying, towing and wading, but also present a dilemma to who run a big family car on their employer s

It isn t well mannered or well enough to quite measure up to big car standards, but it gets amazingly But for practical people who could put its and utility to good use, and who more about value and than aspirational allure, it s a contender.
