Gday, Im Paul The Ford Ranger Is Finally
here now before we get our hands on the V6 version of this. I thought we would review the four cylinder first simply because they have these in stock and that is kind of rare. In the dual cab mute segment at the moment and most dealers you can actually go in there and buy one of these or wait a few weeks and get your hands on one so this is the top specification wild track 2 liter so it’s the buy turbo. It’s priced at just over 67 000, but if that’s too expensive. The entire range kicks off at a little under 36 000.
This Competes With Things Like The Toyota
Hilux, the Isuzu D-max, the Nissan Navara. There are so many competitors in the dual cab youth segment today we’re going to do a detailed review of this. So if you do want to skip ahead to other parts of this review, You can use the time codes on the screen or if you’re on Youtube, you can scroll down and use the chapters below and if you haven’t done so already please subscribe to our channel and press the bell icon because that’s going to help us grow now let’s talk exterior design you’ve got six external colors to pick from all but white is going to cost you an extra 675 dollars so the design what do we think about this In person. I know we’ve done videos on ranger and raptor previously. I’ve talked about what I think about the design now that I’ve got this in person.
Im Driving It Im Seeing What
it’s like on the street when I go to the coffee shop and stuff like that it actually looks really good. This color is a bit full on so I don’t know if I’d go this color if I was getting the wild track, but the design itself really just stands out they I don’t know they’ve just integrated style and also that aggression that you see on F trucks in the states so that means a big old ford logo down the front there. You’ve also got a 360 camera so you can see that nestled into there as well open grille here for additional cooling and then as you follow this stack down. You’ve got a radar sensor down here and then this sort of offset color down the bottom there as well. So it is a big old grille and then as you move around to the side here.
You Can See These Parts Sort Of Taper
off towards the edge. So if you have a look at. The new Volkswagen Amarok that’s where they’ve used that design element to push down the side. Ford hasn’t gone as aggressive there in terms of that overstyled front section that you do see on the Amarok down the bottom here you’ve got a set of led fog lights. So this one has the optional premium package which means you get matrix led headlights that means.
These Can Shut Down Segments As The Cars
going down the road and not blind oncoming traffic if you want to see how this tech works click up here to watch a video we shot before where we compare headlight technologies you got this led daytime running light that sits around the edge there and also an led indicator. This is the Ducks nuts of headlight design at the moment so that is a really good setup part of that premium package. You’re also getting a B sound system inside the cabin which we’ll talk about later auxiliary switches and also led tail lights too let’s whip around to the side here now down here you’ve got an 18-inch alloy wheel and an all-terrain tyre. This can be optioned on other variants of the ranger as well, but it does come standard here with wildtrak like this wheel design it’s pretty straightforward you’ve got that graphite color there isn’t any offset colors there now This is something interesting. I didn’t notice previously the ford badge here is black and it’s black on the back as well.
So I Dont Know If Thats
unique to the wild track, but interesting above here you’ve got some wheel arch cladding there for when we go do a bit of off-road driving up here. It will either say V6 or bi-turbo for the wild track. Being the bi-turbo is a four-cylinder two-liter diesel engine up the top here indicator built into here with that graphite color on the top of the mirror. Housing you have a camera down here for the 360 camera, but a very exciting feature under here that we haven’t seen previously on it is a high-powered led light and what you can do here with wildtrak is you can set up zone lighting and that means you can get 360 degrees of lighting around the car front end uses headlights. The sides use these high-powered leds and the rear uses the tail lights that allows you to get vision around the car really handy so for me.
Its About Puddles.
If you’re out camping it’s about lighting up the area around you really good feature and i like that they’ve thought about functionality when it comes to these utes instead of. exact same as each other like this section here too so that is a functional vent that opens up there and that is because this whole side section here is hydroformed. So there is a gap between the outer part of this and the inner part of the engine as well. So the whole section there is open which aids with cooling.
In Addition To That As Well
under the bonnet you can fit a second battery as part of all of the Ford ranger range except the raptor with the V6 petrol. Every other version can get a second battery option and fitted under the bonnet there side steps down here you’ve got roof rails up here. These can actually carry a 350 kilo load. Now so they are highly functional privacy glass down the side here. For wild track you get these hoops.
- capacity entire ford ranger range
- optioned variants ranger does come
- raptor v6 petrol version second
- driving say v6 bi turbo
- v6 version thought review cylinder
I Dont Know They Theyre.
kind of just stylistic they don’t really serve a purpose you’re gonna wrap anything around those um They’re just there for styling, but on the side here you do have functional side support so you can wrap things around there. If you need to now have a look down here not the entire range of range but some specs within the range of range range of range come with rear disc brakes and that’s a big improvement from the drum brake setup that just feels so ancient and archaic. I know it’s a cost saving measure, but yeah I think having an actual disc break there will make this just look feel and even break a whole lot better now behind here you’ve got a set of leaf springs and I know that you’re thinking well leaf springs aren’t that good because without load this is going to ride terribly. Well Ford managed to tune this quite well in the previous generation of rangers, so I’ll be interested to see whether they’ve done the same thing here.
The Only Variant In The Ranger Range That
doesn’t have leaf springs is the raptor which has the fox live valve suspension set up with coil springs and in addition to that I found some other interesting things under here so the exhaust pipe just dumps to the ground, which is really just weird. I reckon you have a full size spare wheel, which is good news then in addition to that the dimensional changes to this mean it has a 50mm longer wheelbase, so that is the length between the front and rear wheels and in addition to that it has a 50mm wider track, so it should feel more short-footed out on the road and the other changes they made to. Damper set up there is that it now sits outboard of the outer side of that chassis rail instead of being inboard so that should also mean you get better lateral load improvements when you’re driving too so I can’t just hear how all that works over on the side. Here you get a step so that means instead of standing on the tyre and potentially slipping and smacking your jaw on the of this sturdy thing on the side here you could just step into here it holds plenty of weight. It’ll hold me and potentially sean on there as well.
Although I Dont Want To Break That But
you have one of these on each side as well. So it will make getting things out of the tray much easier and we’re gradually making our way to the rear. This here blind spot radar so that signifies that this does have a blind spot sensor, but has a really clever feature and you can program the length of your trailer. What happens after that is that it uses the length of the trailer to determine the blind spot and when that comes on so normally when a vehicle enters your blind spot around here you get the light come up on the wing mirror, whereas now it will measure where the vehicle is with respect to your trailer and as the vehicle enters the zone of the trailer. You’re going to get that blind spot warning means you’re not going to accidentally merge into people with your trailer, which is very good news now come around to the back.
So Have A Look At The
rear so led tail lights here with that optional package that this car has fitted again. These help with the zone lighting because they project light onto the road behind the vehicle. You’ve got black wild track badge black Ford badge. There again camera nestled into there and then a black 4×4 badge. I really do like this bottom section here how they’ve styled it as an indent and then ranger is embossed down the bottom kind of just shows you that they haven’t been lazy with the design.
Theyve Put A Lot Of Effort Into
this tailgate just to make it look and feel a whole lot more premium than it should be for a work ute down here you’ve got another step to load yourself into the tray. I will call out as well with the towing so three and a half. ton brake towing capacity. The entire Ford ranger range comes with an integrated brake controller and that means that you have all of the accessories you need inside the cabin when you do go and put a tow bar on the vehicle, so you don’t need to go wire things inside the car, which is good news and then in addition to that when you do have your trailer wired up.
You Can Use The Fordpass App To
do a light check on the trailer, so that means that you can stand behind it and you don’t have to have a second person. You don’t need to run back and forth to check if all your lights are working. It’ll run through the entire sequence, so that’s a cool feature now let’s look at this tailgate because this car doesn’t have it for whatever reason. I think it’s a pre-production.
But In All The Production Models
you’ll find a ruler built into the tray here and then here is where you have clamp support. So you can feed a clamp into there and actually use this as a you know work utility if you need to there’s a torsion bar in here as well, which means closing. This is a pretty straightforward process while track comes standard with this electric roller.
The Ford Ranger is finally here now before we get our hands on the V6 version of this . This is the top specification wild track 2 liter so it’s the buy turbo.& It’s priced at just over 67 000, but if that’s too expensive. The entire range kicks off at a little under 36 000 .
