One of South Africa’s top-selling bakkies, the Ford Ranger, has undergone a model refresh and the automotive market is expected to pick up its driving pace in terms of sales.
For long, there has been a large gap between the Hilux and Ranger for the title of the South African best-seller. Who will win the fierce battle this 2018?
Ford is expected to boost its new ride with a 10-speed automatic gearbox in co-development with General Motors, along with a 3.2-litre 5-cylinder diesel engine and 2.0-litre diesel engine option.
Although Ford has made a slight upgrade to its 2018 Ranger, the manufacturer has widened the vehicle model’s specs; introducing new grills, keyless entry and headlights featuring fog lights – way to steal the show, Ford!
New Ford Ranger 2018 owners will also notice buttons on the pickup truck’s door handles and a convenient push-start to its engines. It has also been suspected that the brand was testing a forward-facing camera, which is often used to support AEBs (Autonomous Emergency Braking).
