  • Common FAQs
  • The 2.6-litre petrol engine in the Ford Courier generates 86kW of maximum power with 280Nm of torque. With more engine capacity, the Holden Colorado's 2.8-litre turbo diesel delivers 147kW of power and 500Nm of torque.
  • The Ford Courier has three engine sizes to choose from: the 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol, 4.0-litre V6 petrol and a 2.6-litre diesel. By way of comparison, the Mitsubishi Triton has only one engine choice, the 2.4-litre diesel six-speed manual or five-speed automatic.
  • The introduction of the V6 engine gave the Ford Courier a real performance boost to establish it as a strong competitor in the light commercial market. It rightfully stands alongside the Toyota HiLux, Mitsubishi Triton, Holden Colorado and Isuzu D-MAX.
  • The Ford Courier is a big unit with a gross vehicle mass of 2,863 kg. In a heavyweight field, it's even heftier than the market-leading Toyota HiLux that tips the scales at 2,080 kg, kerb weight.
  • The Ford Courier 4.0-litre V6 has a 1,800 kg braked towing capacity. The Nissan Navara on the other hand, has significantly greater pulling power, boasting a commanding 3,500 kg towing capacity through its 2.3-litre diesel engine.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: FORD COURIER (1998 TO 2006)

This model Courier is a great example of a car that worked overseas but didn't have enough local development. Not that it was a bad car to drive, but the cooling system was, in Australian conditions, marginal.

So, the first check of any second-hand Courier is to make sure that neither the head gasket nor the cylinder head have been damaged by a previous overheating episode.

The best way to do that is with what's called a TK test, which is a product that is placed in the radiator and chemically detects if this damage has occurred. Any workshop should be able to carry this out.

Beyond that, the best advice is to keep the Courier's cooling system absolutely up to scratch. In many cases, overheating has been caused by dust, mud and leaves becoming trapped between the radiator and the air-conditioning condenser (which looks like a second radiator).

Sometimes, blowing this rubbish out with compressed air will do the trick.

Even then, the Courtier is not a vehicle we'd recommend for towing anything heavy across the Nullarbor in high summer.
