FORD RANGER Used Car Review

After the demise of the Falcon large car, the Ranger has become the new hero of Ford Australia showrooms on the back of the ever-increasing dual-purpose appeal of dual-cab utes as both workhorses and lifestyle vehicles. Internationally, the Ranger name replaced Courier in 1998 before also been applied locally in 2007. The current-generation, Thai-built Ranger released in 2011 was engineered and designed in Australia, though updated significantly in 2015. It is related to the Mazda BT-50 as part of a joint-venture.

Pros

Cons

  • One of the class leaders for on-road manners
  • Excellent off-road ability
  • Among the best for towing capability
  • Vast choice of styles and variants
  • Cabin presentation could be better
  • A big vehicle that isn't easy to park
  • Still not as refined to drive as a similarly sized SUV
  • Can be expensive for segment
This is general information and should not be relied on as purchasing advice.

SIMILAR MODELS TO FORD RANGER

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: FORD RANGER

One of Ford Australia's hottest sellers in recent years, so there are plenty to choose from second-hand.

Like many modern turbo-diesels, the common-rail technology in use can mean short fuel-injector lifespan. And there are five injectors, not four, in a Ranger's 3.2-litre engine.

Injector pump valves can stick, leading to the fuel overheating and the vehicle entering limp-home mode.

Unusual chain-driven oil pump requires that the engine not sit without oil in it during servicing. Old oil must be dumped and new oil added immediately to prevent pump bleeding dry and not being able to pump new oil when engine is restarted.

Very early Rangers had a dual-mass flywheel which could lead to premature clutch wear. Pulsing through the clutch pedal or shuddering during take-offs are warning signs. Ford changed to a single-mass design from 2012 onwards.
