Our recent eight-way mega ute test highlighted a number of things – not the least of which was the continued competency of the 2016 Ford Ranger XLT. The higher end of the dual cab ute segment is as tough as nails, and we’re not talking just about the vehicles when we make that claim either. The competition for the hearts and minds of the buying public is fierce, and make no mistake, Aussies continue to further their love affair with the dual cab ute segment in all its various forms.
As you can see from reading our mega dual cab ute test, it’s the 2016 Ford Ranger XLT that sits at the top of that pile, as it has done for some time now. You can also find some of the more detailed specification information in that dual cab ute test. The XLT is not the outright pinnacle of the Ranger, um range, as that gong goes to the Wildtrack, but the XLT is undoubtedly the smart money pick in the range. It doesn’t lack in terms of equipment and doesn’t feel like it absolutely needs any of the additions you get with the Wildtrack.
