Almost every variant has risen in cost by $400 since May, with the exception being the flagship Ford Ranger Raptor, which has increased by $700.
Ford has also bolstered the line-up, with the introduction of XL Special Edition and XLT Fully Loaded variants.
The Ford Ranger is currently the second best-selling car in Australia (after the Toyota HiLux), and in June CarAdvice reported Ford's two Thailand factories were struggling to keep up with local demand.
The base-model Ford Ranger two-wheel-drive 2.2-litre XL cab-chassis is now priced from $29,190 plus on-road costs. The most popular model in the line-up, the 3.2-litre XLT double cab, now has a starting pricing of $57,440 plus on road costs.
Meanwhile, the flagship Ford Ranger Raptor now has a recommended retail price of $77,190 plus on-road costs.
The new XL Special Edition includes a factory-fitted bullbar with LED light bar, and a fixed-mount snorkel to the existing Ranger XL 4x4 Cab Chassis.
It has a recommended drive-away price of $49,990.

The new XLT Fully Loaded brings a new look to the standard XLT, and includes semi-auto parking, adaptive cruise control, 18-inch black alloy wheels, and a choice of powertrains. For those tweaks, the Fully Loaded costs $1500 over the equivalent XLT double--cab.
New optional extras are also now available.
A heavy-duty package is offered on a variety of single-cab, super-cab and double-cab body configurations for both the cab-chassis and pick-up Ranger XL 4x4.
The package combines heavy-duty suspension, 17 x 7.5-inch black-painted steel wheels, Continental ContiCrossContact all-terrain tyres, solid wheel nuts, black side steps (except on the single cab chassis), and a rear-view camera kit (on models that don’t already have this feature).
The heavy-duty package costs between $1600 and $2000, depending on the body type.
The Continental ContiCrossContact all-terrain tyres can also be purchased as a stand-alone option, with a recommended retail price of $500 per set.
A new spray-in bedliner is optional on all XL, XLS, XLT double cab pick-up models. Ford claims the option improves durability, strength, and usability when compared to a ‘drop in’ or aftermarket bedliner. It costs an extra $300 or $800, depending on the body type.
The XLS Premium package ($1500) and XLT Tech package ($800) are unchanged.
From August 2020, all new Ford Ranger utes will be equipped with FordPass Connect technology as standard.
The new feature allows owners to lock and unlock their car via their smartphone, pinpoint its location when parked, and check fuel levels and tyre pressures remotely.
A spokesperson for Ford Australia told CarAdvice the introduction of FordPass was not the reason for the recent price rise.
"Prices on all vehicles – and across other brands, you'll find – are constantly reviewed and affected by items such as supply chains, current fluctuations, economies etc," the statement said.
