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