Ford Ranger has long been one of the hardest working pickups in the business. Now available with an even longer list of ingenious technologies, it’s also one of the smartest.
Features shown on this page may only be available on selected models. Where available, these features may be optional extras at additional cost. For more info, download price list to view current UK specifications.
With Adaptive Cruise Control technology, you choose the speed you want to drive at and the system will maintain it. If the built-in RADAR sensor detects a vehicle ahead, it will slow your vehicle to maintain a pre-set distance. Once the road in front is clear, the system will accelerate to your chosen speed.
This system can alert you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front and may help avoid an accident. Radar in the front of the Ranger detects slower vehicles traveling in the same direction, and provides a visual and audible warning if they’re rapidly approaching. If you don’t react and continue to get closer to the other vehicle, Ranger will pre-charge and increase brake assist sensitivity, so even if the brakes are pressed lightly, they’ll automatically apply a harder force to stop you quickly.
Choose 4x2 for regular driving, 4x4 High Range for poor road surfaces and dirt tracks and 4x4 Low Range for exceptionally challenging terrain. Using Electronic Shift-On-The-Fly you can also switch between 4x2 and 4x4 High Range, whilst on the move.
If it detects that you’re accidentally drifting out of lane, Lane-Keeping Alert can alert you by vibrating the steering wheel and displaying a visual warning.
Whether the signs are at the side of the road or above it, permanent or temporary, Traffic Sign Recognition can identify them. An icon of that speed or a no-overtaking sign appears on the instrument cluster and changes every time you enter a new limit.
A useful night-driving aid, Auto High Beam temporarily dips your headlights when it detects oncoming traffic or a vehicle ahead, stopping you dazzling other drivers. It then automatically reverts back to high beam, giving you maximum visibility.
Driver Alert System constantly monitors your driving behaviour and is designed to detect any changes that could be caused by fatigue. If the system identifies you’re becoming less vigilant, a warning icon appears in the display, suggesting you take a break. If your driving alertness further declines, the message is repeated and combined with a chime.
Hill Descent Control is designed to regulate your downhill speed in off-road conditions without you even having to touch the brake or the accelerator pedals and it operates in both forward and reverse gears.
Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards or forwards when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2-3 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.
Load Adaptive Control adjusts the Electronic Stability Control according to the overall weight your Ranger is carrying. This ensures control and stability whether empty or fully loaded.
An important and potentially life-saving part of Ford SYNC is Emergency Assistance*. In the unlikely event of an accident, where the airbag is deployed or the fuel-pump deactivated, the technology can use a Bluetooth®-paired and connected mobile phone to automatically make a direct call to the Emergency Services for you. You can choose to stop the call, or talk to those services if you need to. Crucially, the system will supply vital information, such as your GPS coordinates, even if you are unconscious.
SYNC 3 is our most advanced version to date. It’s faster and easier to use, with enhanced voice commands and even more functionality. The new interface has larger buttons for improved usability, and the colour Touchscreen now features pinch-and-swipe gestures found on smartphones and tablets for even more intuitive navigation. SYNC 3 also features AppLink, Apple’s CarPlay and Android Auto, to display your smartphone’s information on the touchscreen.
The 2.2L TDCi Duratorq diesel engine has proved its performance, strength and dependability in the field and has now been enhanced, offering additional power and economy.
A 2.2L TDCi Duratorq 130PS and 330 Nm of torque is available only on the 4x2 Regular Cab XL.
The 2.2L TDCi Duratorq generates an impressive 160 PS and 385 Nm of torque. Available in 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions (Selected models only).
Need even more power? Then take the 3.2L TDCi Duratorq diesel option, with 200PS and 470 Nm of torque at your command.
Impressive fuel economy and low emissions are delivered from 43.5 mpg (6.5L/100m) and 171 g/km CO2 emissions (160PS 4x4 with 6-speed manual and 3.15 FDR).
The Ford Ranger offers a choice of axles for the manual 160PS 2.2 engine. This allows you to prioritise between fuel economy (3.15 Axle ratio) or towing capability (3.55 Axle ratio).
Trailer Sway Control detects ‘snaking’ or trailer sway and reduces your vehicle’s speed to help solve the problem, making towing more controlled. The system slows the vehicle down by reducing the engine’s torque and gradually increasing the brake pressure on all wheels.
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.
Your workmates, the family, your friends… Ranger provides room for them with a choice of three distinct cab styles and four series. As spacious as before, but better equipped than ever, you and your passengers will travel in both comfort and style.
