2020 Ford Ranger Wildtrak review: 2.0 Bi-Turbo

It's easy to forget that the Ford Ranger is based on a nearly decade-old platform. Is it still the darling of the 4x4 ute segment?

The D-Max claims to be better in the rough stuff, so we put it to the test against an old favourite in the dual-cab ute segment.

Revideo: 2020 Ford Ranger vs Toyota HiLux comparison review

Like their sales figures, it is honestly very hard to separate these utes. Each time one pulls ahead, the other counters in a different way. More tech, Ford. Better ergonomics, Toyota. Rear passenger comfort, Ford. Longer load area, Toyota. Cheaper to buy, HiLux. Cheaper to run, Ranger. You can play tit-for-tat in every possible way, but in our mind it comes down to one key outcome...

Video: 2020 Ford Ranger v Toyota Hilux... Tug o' War!

There are any number of ways to decide which of these two utes should be king of the Australian market, and our latest full comparison is certainly one of them. THIS, however, is another slightly less scientific but loads-more-fun way to decide.

2020 Ford Ranger comparison: 2.0-litre BiTurbo v 3.2-litre Duratorq

Buyers of four-wheel drives and utes love to parley the contents of each other's engine bay. But which is of these Ranger powerplants is best?

Ute review: 2021 Isuzu D-Max v Ford Ranger off-road comparison

The new Isuzu D-Max is much improved, but is it good enough to take on one of the best off-road?

What cars did Aussies buy during the pandemic? Utes, utes and more utes

Australia’s favourite workhorse utes are increasingly being used as weekend getaway cars.  That’s the assessment from industry insiders trying to explain the unexpected surge in the sales of utes such as the Toyota HiLux, Ford Ranger, and full-size US pick-ups such as the Ram 1500...

Interview: Ford Australia boss Andrew Birkic

The new boss of Ford Australia, Andrew Birkic, has been in the top job for a little more than a month, but he has been with the Blue Oval brand for more than 26 years. We asked the former global brand manager for Ford Ranger about plans for a V6 Ford Ranger Raptor, the chances of the Ford Explorer, F-150 and Bronco nameplates ever returning to Australian showrooms – and if Ford will stay in V8 Supercars once Holden is gone...

2021 Ford Ranger FX4 Max price announced, in showrooms December

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...

  A Note from the Editor: A stock image has been supplied with this review. Title: Geoff buys a Ford Ranger - How I Came to Understand and Embrace the dual cab ute.
