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...

2015 Ford Ranger Quick Review

Our recent eight-way mega ute test highlighted a number of things – not the least of which was the continued competency of the 2016 Ford Ranger XLT. The higher end of the dual cab ute segment is as tough as nails, and we’re not talking just about the vehicles when we make that claim either...

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...

Ford Ranger Wildtrak v Toyota HiLux Black Edition : Comparison review

The challenger takes on the champion. That’s the best way to describe this twin test, which puts Australia’s long-reining best-selling ute, the Toyota HiLux, up against the increasingly popular Ford Ranger. The Ford is catching the Toyota in terms of sales: in 2014, there were 38,126 HiLux models sold in 4x2 and 4x4 configurations, while a total of 26,219 Rangers were sold (4x2 and 4x4 combined)...

2012-15 Ford Ranger recalled for rear seat fix: 58,000 vehicles affected

Ford has issued a recall for 58,066 of its 2012-2015 Ranger 'Double Cab' PX and PX MkII utes, over concerns the latch spring in the rear seatback could fail - preventing it from locking into the upright position. Like the fault affecting the closely-related Mazda BT-50, the rear seats of the affected utes could break, which could see the seatbacks fall forward and down when under brakes...

Toyota HiLux versus Ford Ranger, the great Australian rivalry

As far as Australian automotive head-to-heads go, it’s hard to think of one more significant (or potentially parochial) than the Ford Ranger versus the Toyota HiLux. These two icons of industry have come to define the lifestyle ute battle in Australia, which is now one of the three biggest market segments by volume alongside small cars and medium-sized SUVs...

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...

2015 Ford Ranger XLS 3.2 (4x4) Review

The engine on these new Rangers is effortless, no revving the guts out of it to get it to go. The ride quality is exceptional and improves when towing. Towing is so easy and fuel economy is great under load or just cruising. The ambient road noise in cab is almost silent. The dash and options for use are good for the model, cruise control features and fuel display settings are easy to read...

2016 Ford Ranger XLT 3.2 (4x4) Review

I have had my 2016 Ranger XLT 4x4 manual for 10 weeks and have clocked up 10,000km in this time. It is a dream to drive, the adaptive cruise control is awesome and once you have it you don't want to be without it. Engine is brilliant and after changing over from a fully kitted GU7 Nissan Patrol its like a sports car in handling and performance...

2016 Ford Ranger Wildtrak 3.2 (4x4) Review

Since November 2015 purchase, the Wildtrak has been reliable up to this stage only done 2900km, rides well, and steering is great. I find trying to locate key into ignition at night is difficult no light. Fuel consumption is ok but not as good as my 2015 Colorado. I would like to see bigger wheels 19 inch and rubber flares on guards plus a tray on Wildtrak models...
