Ford adds models to Ranger line-up

07.02.2013

FORD HAS made a few minor revisions to its popular Ranger range. The car, in essence, stays exactly the same, but a few much-needed derivatives have been made available for the first time.

The imposing Wildtrak, previously only available as a 4x2 manual, will now be available in automatic in both 4x2 and 4x4 guises. The range-topping auto is powered by Ford’s 3.2-litre Duratorq five-cylinder diesel engine that has 147kW and 470Nm on tap.

Changes to the line-up for 2013 include the addition of Bluetooth with voice activation, including steering-wheel audio controls and a USB port to the Single-, Super- and Double Cab XLS derivatives, while all XLT models can now be fitted with optional park distance sensors and a reverse camera.

The Wildtrak’s specification is exceptionally generous. In addition to the above-mentioned Bluetooth and steering audio controls, it also features dual-zone climate control, rain-sensing wipers, electric windows and heated seats.

Single Cab Base customers will now have the opportunity to fit air conditioning as an optional extra, while a safety pack will also be available as an option, which includes ABS brakes with EBD, BeltMinder as well as driver- and passenger airbags.
 
A 4-yr/120 000km warranty is standard on all models. A 5-yr/90 000km service plan is optional on entry level models and standard from the XL models on up.
