Award-win­ning Ford Ranger line-up gains ad­di­tional fea­tures & new mod­els for 2014

Shepparton News - Shepparton Car Weekly - - SHEPPARTON CAR WEEKLY -

The award-win­ning Ford Ranger gains ad­di­tional fea­tures and new vari­ants for 2014.

The Ranger XLS was added to sit be­tween the XL and XLT and is now avail­able in ei­ther 2.2-litre or 3.2-litre en­gines mated to a six-speed man­ual or six-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion.

Apart from the ar­rival of new XLS mod­els, the 4x2 XL Sin­gle Cab Chas­sis 2.2- litre lowrider Ranger gains side airbags as stan­dard while satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion has been added across the en­tire XLT line-up.

“We have re­sponded to cus­tomers who have been ask­ing for satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion, as well as a more pri­vate buyer-fo­cused Ranger in the XLS which of­fers im­proved ex­te­rior ap­pear­ance and in­te­rior com­fort while de­liv­er­ing out­stand­ing off-road abil­i­ties,” said Ford Aus­tralia Vice Pres­i­dent of Mar­ket­ing, Sales and Ser­vice Graeme Whick­man.

Whick­man said the ad­di­tion of satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion on the XLT 4x2 and 4x4 mod­els was in re­sponse to cus­tomer de­mand. “This is a fea­ture our cus­tomers value so we’ve added it into the XLT mod­els,” he said.

“The Ranger has been one of our strong­est sell­ing ve­hi­cles in 2013. We’ve sold more than 20 000 and the Ranger con­tin­ues to im­press our cus­tomers with its ‘can do’ func­tion­al­ity and per­for­mance.

“We ex­pect the pop­u­lar­ity of the Ranger to con­tinue in 2014 by of­fer­ing cus­tomers fea­tures and mod­els.”

As with all Rangers, the award­win­ning pickup is avail­able with Blue­tooth, USB and iPod in­te­gra­tion and voice con­trol over the ra­dio, CD, iPod, USB, and mo­bile phone stan­dard on all mod­els. Sim­i­larly, cruise con­trol is stan­dard across the more en­tire range.

The Ranger was de­signed and en­gi­neered in Aus­tralia. It is be­ing man­u­fac­tured in three con­ti­nents and sold in more than 180 coun­tries.
