Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - ADVENTUREDRIVE -

It’s not dif­fi­cult to un­der­stand why the lat­est Ford Ranger has been do­ing so well in the sales depart­ment. It re­ally has evolved from a work­horse into some­thing way more civilised, ur­ban and com­fort­able. Yet it still has that rugged edge about it… both in the me­chan­i­cal and styling de­part­ments.

The price? That’s R624 900. Which is about R30 000 more than its most di­rect ri­val, the Toy­ota Hilux 2.8GD-6 4×4 AT. But then there’s all the kit and tech, and the fact that it is a ‘lim­ited edi­tion’.

And, com­pared to VW’s swiftly-sell­ing Amarok 3.0TDI V6, it’s a tan­gi­ble bar­gain.
