Ford Ranger to replace Holden Colorado on Victoria Police general duties fleet

The Ford Ranger has earned its police stripes in Victoria and will replace the current fleet of Holden Colorado utes – at a rate of 200 vehicles per year, as each example comes up for retirement. A third-party supplier has developed a new prisoner module to be fitted to the back of two-door space cab and four-door crew cab vehicles, and Ford says it has tested the new set-up at its engineering centre near Geelong.
