FORD RANGER 2.2 LIM­ITED

CAR (UK) - - Quick Group Test -

What ex­actly am I gaw­ping at here?

The UK’s best-sell­ing pick-up has been with us since 2011. A 2.2-litre four-cylin­der with either

128bhp or 158bhp and A dis­ap­point­ing drive; 3.2 ver­sion is less strained a war­bly 3.2-litre žive

(197bhp) are your diesel-only en­gine choices.

Looks per­fect for my #blessed #life­style…

Rel­a­tively low-key in this com­pany, de­spite more chrome in its grille than Lil’ Wayne. Lim­ited spec, as seen here, piles on the chrome but range-top­ping Wild­track is the one for to­day’s žlat white-sip­ping pseudo out­doors­man.

Any­thing tough un­der the skin?

An elec­tron­i­cally se­lectable four-wheel-drive sys­tem is en­gaged via a switch; turn to 4L (low-range, four-wheel drive) for se­ri­ous o•-road­ing. Re­lies on tech like hillde­s­cent con­trol and hill-hold as­sist to žill in any re­main­ing o•-road­ing blanks. O•-Road Pack with un­der­body pro­tec­tion and lock­ing rear di• a £300 op­tion.

Whether you’re felling trees or swing­ing from branch to branch in a loin­cloth, these are the wheels for you
