The updated Ford Ranger ute will be priced from $27,390 when it launches in the third-quarter of this year. At the high-end, a Ranger Wildtrak with an automatic gearbox will set you back $60,090.
Ford have drip-fed information about the new Ranger, starting with photos of the updated PX Mark II model, then detailed specifications which we revealed a fortnight ago. With the Ranger’s 2015 prices now available, interested buyers have just a couple of months to wait until the new look Ranger launches to compete with the Nissan Navara NP300 (read more here), the new Toyota HiLux (read more here), and the new Mitsubishi Triton (watch our review here).
Ford are aggressively pitching the Ranger ute as the premium option in the increasingly competitive utility segment. This marketing has already started, with runout marketing for the current PX Ranger claiming ‘you can buy a best-seller or a cheaper alternative, but nothing is as good as the Ford Ranger.’
Expect this to reach fever pitch as the new-look truck arrives later this year.
Ranger will continue to be available in both 4×2 and 4×4 drivetrains, in single cab, super cab, and double cab configurations. Both a 2.2-litre turbodiesel four-cylinder (118kW/385Nm) and a 3.2-litre turbodiesel five-cylinder (147kW/470Nm) will return in the new shape.
The basic XL model is available in the most significant number of configurations, with the higher-end XLT and Wildtrak trims confined to the Double Cab style.
