Codenamed the T6, Ford Australia is developing the Ford Ranger for worldwide consumption.
These exclusive photos show a right-hand-drive version of the Ford Ranger, fitted out with the interior that will make the final production model. The interior Pavle.com.au spied recently was of a mule, this time around the interior represents the final product.
A Ford insider told CarAdvice earlier last year that the T6 Ranger would feature car-like levels of fit and finish. These exclusive pictures show a Fiesta-esque interior.
Featuring the same steering wheel as the Fiesta, in addition to a similar centre stack layout, it's a sure bet that the 2011 Ford Ranger will launch with Ford SYNC and an LCD screen for upper models. The LCD screen also allows the fitting of a reversing camera.
People with keen eyes will also note a smaller LCD in the speedometer cluster, probably there for trip computer, fuel consumption and vehicle settings.
Also clear on the rearward facing photo is well appointed rear seats complete with adjustable headrests. The material and finish appear to be of a high quality.
The vehicle photographed also features tweeters in the wing mirror housing, hinting at a high quality sound system available at launch. A switch for the stability control can also be seen on the dashboard
With the launch of the Volkswagen Amorak, it's quite clear that Ford needs to stay on top of the game and hit the ground running when the T6 Ford Ranger is launched in 2011. Commercial vehicles such as the Ranger are changing more from workhorses to car-like vehicles that double as work trucks.
