The Blue Oval has ce­mented it­self firmly in the minds of the Kiwi ute buyer. Con­sis­tently be­ing the num­ber one sell­ing ute through­out the course of 2018, one might ask the ques­tion ‘where to now, Ford?’ And the an­swer lies in not only sup­ply­ing the back­bone utes – 4x2’s, 4x4’s in cab-chas­sis or well-side con­fig­u­ra­tions, a range of com­pre­hen­sive spec­i­fi­ca­tion lev­els and a solidly-per­form­ing 3.2-litre, five-cylin­der, 147kw en­gine with a choice of man­ual or au­to­matic six-speed trans­mis­sions – but also be­spoke per­for­mance utes, which stem from the same plat­form, such as the Ranger Rap­tor. In the mean­time, Ranger’s ram­pant run at the top shows no signs of slow­ing, po­si­tion­ing it clearly as the bench­mark ute to which oth­ers as­pire.
