Ford is preparing to take the wraps off a comprehensively redesigned, new-generation compact pick-up developed in Australia for sale in 180 global markets. The all-new Ford Ranger will be unveiled at the Australian International Motor Show, on October 15, 2010.
New Ranger is the latest in a wave of global products driven by the One Ford strategy. Designed and engineered at Ford Australia’s Campbellfield product development and Geelong proving ground facilities, and based on a new global compact truck platform, Ranger has been transformed to establish true pick-up truck leadership.
From impressive gains in power and fuel economy – the result of its new engine family – to outstanding pick-up truck capability that includes exceptional towing and payload capacity, the next-generation Ford Ranger is set to emerge as a clear segment leader. It not only builds on the tremendous Ranger heritage of capability, but it also gives owners a spacious, comfortable, feature-filled interior and sophisticated driving experience that they would expect only from a car.
The all-new Ranger will go on sale in Britain in Autumn 2011.
