In the Spotlight: Ford Ranger
Added: 06 February 2017
Buying a new commercial vehicle can be daunting. There are so many options available, it can be difficult to make a decision.
At Day’s Transit Centre, we spend our time helping tradespeople and businesses to find the ideal vehicle to suit their needs. Here, we’ve detailed the Ford Ranger’s main features…
The Ford Ranger has earned its reputation as a go anywhere, do anything pick-up. It is a vehicle you can depend on in the harshest environments, rely on for the toughest jobs and trust to deliver an exceptional driving experience, every day.
Impressive Towing Ability
With a gross payload of over 1 tonne, and 3,500kg towing capability, you can take on the biggest tasks and challenges and carry and tow the biggest, bulkiest loads too.
The Ranger goes where lesser vehicles may fear to tread. In fact, with a wading depth of 800mm it will prove itself both on dry land and through water. Meanwhile, the option of an Off-Road Pack includes engine, transfer case and fuel tank protection to reduce the risk of damage when driving on uneven ground. The pack also includes an electronic locking rear differential to provide increased traction.
Reverse and Park More Easily
Bollards, railings, low walls… the rear view camera activates automatically when you select reverse gear and displays whatever’s behind you on an 8” screen* built into the instrument panel. The system also displays virtual guidelines, to help you park in the smallest of spaces.
Alongside this, parking distance sensors help you judge the distance between your vehicle and obstacles, both in front and behind you. When the sensors detect an object, they activate an audible warning that intensifies the closer you get to it.
Versatile Pick-Up Box
The Ranger’s pick-up box can carry a standard Euro pallet, the tools of your trade, or all you need for a weekend camping trip. It also offers a number of features to help keep your load safe, all of which are DIN compliant: sturdy tie-down hooks, an integrated load rest and, on some models, exterior rope rails. For added security and peace of mind, the tailgate can be locked and unlocked manually.
If you’d like to experience these features for yourself, why not take the Ford Ranger for a test drive?
