River crossing vs the All-New Ranger
A new engine design combined with more power gives the All-New Ranger an
unbeaten water wading of 800mm. So you can go places other vehicles can't.
A steep riverbank entry put the higher positioning of Ranger's key engine
components to the test before it even got to the deepest part of the river
All-New Ford Ranger Gets Into Deep Water
Come flood or high water, all-new Ford Ranger confidently takes it all in
its durable stride, buoyed by its best-in-class water-wading capability of
800 mm. The 4x4 and 4x2 Hi-Rider models can wade through deep water even
while carrying a full load.
All-new Ford Ranger transforms into home on the road
The all-new Ford Ranger can swallow a veritable amount of things -- and
we're not even talking about the substantial volume of its cargo box. The
Double Cab model has 23 stowage spaces in its cabin -- more than any other
one-tonne truck -- which can store a wide number and variety of objects.
All-new Ford Ranger Hits A Six
The all-new Ford Ranger scores a clear winner in its fuel-efficient
six-speed automatic transmission that not only shifts quickly and smoothly
but is also smart enough to adapt to individual driving styles and
gradients without the driver even realising it.
The All-New Ford Ranger
The all-new Ford Ranger -- the latest in a wave of global vehicles -- makes
its worldwide debut today at the Australian International Motor Show. The
all-new Ranger has a powerful presence and promises to give pickup truck
owners more can-do capability and a transformed truck ownership experience.
From impressive gains in power and safety to exceptional towing capability,
the next-generation Ford Ranger emerges as a clear segment leader. It not
only builds on the tremendous Ranger heritage of pickup truck capability,
but it also gives truck owners a spacious, comfortable, feature-filled
interior and sophisticated driving experience they would expect to find
only in a car.
Amongst the most high-tech in its segment, Ranger is the impressive result
of an all-new global compact pickup truck platform from Ford -- the latest
to emerge under the company's One Ford initiative -- and Mazda. It replaces
two previous-generation compact truck platforms currently in production to
present a new face of Built Ford Tough to customers around the world.
