When the best Ford engineering minds from around the world were given the responsibility of creating the best Ranger ever, their brief was simple. No compromise. Not only did they have to deliver a Ranger model like no other, they also had to prove it had the toughness, endurance and versatility to take on some of the harshest terrains and climates across five continents.
Unrivalled water wading
When it came to testing the suspension in the new Ranger, our engineers chose one of the world’s most unforgiving environments. The Australian outback. What they didn’t factor into the already extreme conditions were the heaviest rains in 10 years. Luckily, with key engine components and air intakes positioned high under the bonnet for a best-in-class water wading of 800mm, Ranger had no trouble tackling the swollen rivers and submerged tracks.

Design that delivers
The challenge for our design team was function and form. How did we give the All-New Ranger a muscular, contemporary exterior, without compromising on fuel efficiency and a smoother ride? It meant putting the All-New Ranger through more than 1,000 full-vehicle aerodynamic simulations using the same leading-edge technology as Formula One teams. We think Ranger’s new look and performance was worth it.
Double Cab class-leading legroom
All-New Ranger was designed with driver and passenger comfort in mind. That’s why there is more legroom in the back than any of our competitors. No more complaints from passengers in the rear and no more knees pressing into the back of the front seat. And larger rear doors make it easier than ever for everyone to pile-in and out- fast.
