2014 Ford Ranger XLT 3.2 Review

After reading heaps of review on here I had decided it was going to be a ranger or a Colorado the reason I chose the ranger was the dash has inbuilt key pad for phone tick it looks like a truck. Brought this truck for use on the farm plus for personal ute. After having a toyota hilux for the last 3 trucks it was a bold move but a good one...

2013 Ford Ranger XL 2.2 Review

For a brand new car you expect it to be rather good on fuel and speed but it has a lot of drag when first starting and several times now I've had to take it into the mechanic for loss of turbo input and a smelly air conditioner. On the plus side, the Ford Ranger's bluetooth technology that connects automatically is great...

2012 FORD RANGER XLT 3.2 Review

I have the 3.2 double cab. I have owned it for about 12,000KM. It averages about 9.6ltrs/100KM around town and just a bit better than that on the motorway. It is a roomy and quiet ride with excellent handling and very good stereo. I find the Diesel to have a dead spot on take off from stop lights...wouldn't want to jump out in traffic to quickly...

2012 FORD RANGER XLT 3.2 Review

I have covered 16000 km in my XLT auto Ranger and have nothing but praise for it. Tow a 2700kg van and at 95 to 100km per hour set on cruise control it returns an average of 14 to 15 litres per 100 km. The price difference between the Ranger and Mazda (BT50) is more than made up for with extra equipment such as standard towbar, standard chrome roll bar, standard tray liner and other internal electronic and Bluetooth fittings which work a treat...

2011 FORD RANGER XL Review

We brought the 2011 PK Ford Ranger crew cab 4WD Ute for its towing capacity of 3 Tonne as we tow a caravan with it, the car has done 16,000klms and we have to replace the clutch - not covered under warranty by Ford as the vehicle was not designed to reverse loads?! We were reversing the van up a slight hill to park when we smelt the burning of the clutch, straight away we stopped the vehicle to find out what was burning and found it was the clutch, took it to Ford and was told it was driver error not a faulty clutch this was told to us before they even looked at the clutch and they wanted to charge us $4000 to fix it - we went else where and got a heavy duty clutch installed for $2500...

2011 FORD RANGER Review

I have been very pleased with this dual cab ute. However, the tyres that are supplied with this ute are most unsuitable. When you select 4WD, you do not expect the tyres to still be constantly searching for grip on packed gravel, and this is in low range. Unfortunately these tyres are suitable for Highway use only and care must still be taken in the wet...
