Extra gear and extra value in this new middle-range specification. What's not to like?

2019 Ford Ranger Wildtrak 3.2L 4x4 review

Keeping alive the tradition of ‘no replacement for displacement’, Ford’s 3.2-litre Ranger Wildtrak hangs around to cater to the needs of buyers that don’t like the sound of relying on a 2.0-litre engine to do the heavy lifting.

2019 Ford Ranger XLT 2.0 4x4 auto review

Aussies don’t like small engines – at least not in big, tough work utes – so is the new 2.0-litre Ford Ranger hammering the nails in its own coffin? Not just yet it seems.

2019 Ford Ranger Raptor review

Big wheels, big shocks, big wheel track and big presence. Too bad the engine's a tad underdone.

CarAdvice Winners Circle: Ford Ranger Raptor

The Ranger Raptor's engine isn't what anybody dreamed it would be, but no vehicle is judged on its engine alone, and the Raptor does feel like more than just the sum of its parts. It’s the next evolution of Australia’s 4WD, signalling a very exciting future to come. Let’s just hope they stick a few different (and more powerful) engines under the bonnet...

2019 Ford Ranger 2.0-litre XLT Bi-Turbo review: First look

The new 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel 2019 Ford Ranger is smoother, quieter, and more advanced. It further blurs the lines between built-for-purpose and built-for-families – especially in high-spec XLT trim – and looks set to continue its streak as the jewel in Ford Australia’s sales crown.

2016 Ford Ranger XLT 3.2 (4x4) review

I first purchased my 2016 XLT Ranger second hand early last year. It was my second Ranger in as many years, the first one being a PX1 manual, which I regretted from the day I got it. This time I was determined to do it properly; PX2 in auto and modify it to my liking. Compared to the PX1, the PX2 is largely the same...

2019 Ford Ranger Wildtrak 2.0 (4x4) Review

I’d been scrolling through CarAdvice for some time leading up to buying my WildTrak in the hope of reading an owners review on the new PX3 WildTrak before pulling the pin. After realising no one had written one up yet I thought I’d pen my own review with my initial impressions of the WildTrak for the short time I have owned it...

2017 Ford Ranger XLT 3.2 (4x4) review

When looking for a replacement for my previous ute a little more than a year ago, I was set on getting the safest one available at that stage. The Ford Ranger was top of the pile, and therefore the search ended with a slightly used 2017 3.2 XLT 4x4 auto. My first auto, and it might be my last for a while. More on that later...
