2020 Ford Ranger XLT Hi-Rider 4x2 review

It looks the same. It feels the same. But despite the Ford Ranger XLT 4x2 Hi-Rider being cheaper, lighter and less complex than its 4x4 sibling, no-one is buying it. James finds out why...

2020 Ford Ranger Wildtrak review: 2.0 Bi-Turbo

Video: Ford Raptor v Jeep Gladiator v Land Rover Defender - Drive Car of the Year 2021 Best Off Road Vehicle

And while these three contenders are all guilty as charged, they go about their own respective business in very different ways. Ford’s Ranger Raptor is a high-performance four-wheel-drive ute, while Jeep has applied their time-honoured off-road chassis into their own new Gladiator ute. And Land Rover’s new Defender is the British off-road icon, completely reimagined through a modern lens...

2021 4x4 Ute Off-road mega test

You can see it in the traffic. Four-wheel-drive utes are more popular than ever, and account for almost one in five (17.5 per cent) of all new vehicle sales in Australia based on sales data from January to April 2021. Indeed, between the Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux, four-wheel-drive double cab utes have been the top-selling vehicles outright for the past five years in a row, and are well on the way to notching up a sixth...

2022 Ford Ranger XL Single Cab spy photos

The next-generation 2022 Ford Ranger has been spied testing once again, this time in entry-level XL Single Cab guise. Following video of Ranger Super Cab prototypes being tested by Ford Australia engineers in southern NSW in April, our spy photography partners snapped the Single Cab body style touring US roads for the first time – with the circa-16-inch steel wheels worn by the prototype indicating it is an entry-level, work-focused XL variant...

VFACTS May 2021: Toyota HiLux, Ford Ranger and Isuzu D-Max take out the Top Four, drive record ute sales 

Australia’s love affair with utes has hit a new milestone, accounting for approximately one in four of every new vehicle sold last month. Three utes – the Toyota HiLux, Ford Ranger and Isuzu D-Max – filled the Top Four sales positions in May 2021 as buyers prepare to holiday at home amid international travel restrictions, and tradies tool up for the constriction boom...

The Ford Ranger Raptor commercial that will never be shown in Australia

It came as something of a surprise that the Ford Ranger is the best-selling ute in Europe, a market not well known for its pick-up truck culture. So when Ford of Europe recently released the Ford Ranger Raptor Special Edition, it was only fitting it did so with ‘bad-ass’ advertising campaign...

2019 Ford Ranger XLT 2.0 (4x4) review

I purchased the Ranger as a demo over 12 months ago with 3000km on the clock. It was a replacement for my 15 year old Prado which had high fuel usage (petrol) and struggled when towing my van. This vehicle also needed to be a competent 4WD and run on diesel. I also liked the ute idea in order to throw surfboards and bikes in the back, along with extra storage for when we go away...

2021 Ford Ranger SPORT 3.2 (4x4) review

I always loved cars, and as a kid I had a pedal car (thanks to my Grandad) which was red and a convertible. I learned to drive in a VW Beetle at the age of 16 - a car that was idle for most of its life due to constant engine problems. In my 20s and 40s I worked as a Quality Engineer in Australia for a few Automotive companies, such as Toyota, Ford and Bridgestone...

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...
