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.
