2016 Ford Ranger : Lifestyle Adventure in New Zealand

The Ford Ranger may be one of the most popular 4x4 dual-cab utes in Australia, but it's New Zealand where they can't get enough of them. Where Aussies tend to prefer passenger cars and SUV's over light commercial vehicles, in NZ the Ranger is currently the single most popular vehicle overall...

Tow ball mass explained with the Ford Ranger XLT

Tow ratings have become pretty serious marketing fodder among SUV and pickup manufacturers. But while the maximum rating is good to know, there is another value that might just be more important... Tow Ball Mass. James explains.

Ford Ranger Wildtrak Review

The Ford Ranger Wildtrak is the current king of the 'lifestyle ute’ segment. It offers a unique look to the rest of the Ranger lineup, and is aimed squarely at buyers who want their ute to work harder on the weekend than it does during the week. We put the Wildtrak through its paces both on and off road to see how it handles mixed-mode use and see whether it is worth its $60-grand price tag...

Ford Ranger Wildtrak v Holden Colorado Z71 comparison

This is the new Ford versus Holden battleground. Forget sedans, forget V8s: diesel dual-cab utes are where these two brands stand to garner the most credibility among their true blue Aussie buyers in the coming years. As a result we’ve brought together the Ford Ranger Wildtrak and its heavily updated rival, the Holden Colorado Z71, for a duel...

Extra-cab ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Mazda BT-50 v Nissan Navara v Toyota HiLux

So you don’t want a single-cab ute, and you can’t quite stretch to a dual-cab in terms of budget ... the extra-cab ute is the pick-up truck for you. This style of ute caters to the needs of buyers who want the flexibility of four seats, but tray space closer to that of a single-cab variant...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mazda BT-50 v Mitsubishi Triton v Nissan Navara v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

Utes, pick-ups, trucks, dual-cabs, double-cabs – whatever you call them, these big four-door 4x4 haulers are massively important to buyers in Australia. The 4x4 utility segment has boomed in recent years, and it remains one of the strongest parts of the Australian new car market – indeed, roughly one in every 10 vehicles sold in this country will be a four-wheel-drive commercial vehicle...

2017 Ford Ranger FX4 pricing and specs

The limited-edition 2017 Ford Ranger FX4 has been revealed, giving the popular ute a 'black pack' makeover. In America, the FX4 badge currently brings enhanced capability to the big F-150 truck, but, in our case, Ford has stuck with a purely aesthetic exercise...

January Sales: Toyota HiLux edges Ranger and Colorado

Now that we’re acclimatised to the idea of a light commercial being the nation’s top-selling vehicle for a calendar year, we can watch the market with a different set of eyes. We’re only one month into 2017, but the January figures for ute sales make for interesting reading, mostly on account of the ever-growing Toyota HiLux versus Ford Ranger battle — billed by some as the new Commodore v Falcon rivalry...

Ford Ranger: Australian developed ute is heading to the US in 2019

The next update for the Ford Ranger will be sold in the US from 2019, and will be accompanied by a new Bronco SUV in 2020. Apart from confirming their return to the North American market, after an absence of eight and 24 years, respectively, Ford hasn't released many details about either the new Ranger or Bronco...

Toyota HiLux tops 2016 sales charts, Ranger fourth

It’s official: the Toyota HiLux was Australia’s top-selling new vehicle in 2016, marking the first time a light commercial ute has finished a calendar year atop the podium. Remarkably, about half of these were the flagship SR5 4x4, which surged on the back of growth in the ‘lifestyle’ ute market, and responded to unprecedented discounts prompted in the most part by the success of the Ford Ranger...

2016 Ford Ranger XLT 3.2 (4x4) review

I have been a Holden man all my life, and when the business grew to a point where I needed a truck, I went shopping. I tested all the new utes on the market, all bar the HiLux because of its crummy new engine, dull interior and disgusting exterior – bias aside and ignoring the badge on the grille, the Ranger was my pick by a country mile...

2011 Ford Ranger Wildtrak (4x4) Review

I bought the car 9 months ago, it now has 180,000 km on the clock - so far there have been no problems. It has some extras fitted to it,which include; extra Safari diesel tank, Ironman belly plates, Rhino wheels, EFS suspension, aluminium camping canopy and so on. I must say the engine is great! nice and powerful, I hardly have to use 1st low range as it is too strong...

2016 Ford Ranger XLT 3.2 (4x4) Review

I came out of a 2006 BMW X5 and this ute matches it well. I bought the manual after driving both and the magnificent gear change sold me on it. It shifts better than any manual vehicle I have ever driven and I have driven Lambo's and Ferrari's...

2012 Ford Ranger XLT 3.2 (4x4) Review

I have had a 2012 px Ranger for four years . I have my own business and have clocked up 109000km over that period. I did not have any problems with the vehicle in that time and it has been the best car I have ever owned. I have just upgraded to the 2016 model and hope to have an even better experience with this...
