Used Ford Ranger for sale
The Ford Ranger is a rugged pickup truck that benefits from a quality interior, as well as seating for two or five people, depending on spec.
It may not be as sophisticated as a VW Amarok or have a legendary heritage like that of the Toyota Hilux, but it simply does all the basics well to give pick-up buyers something to think about when looking to purchase. Being a Ford, there's a whiff of everyday hero about the Ranger, too.
And with that in mind, other reasons to consider the Ranger include:
- Typical Ford quality
- Various specifications and trims
- Impressive dealer network
- Cool Raptor/high spec version
Economy, Towing, and Performance
Engine choice from launch came in 2.2-litre and 3.2-litre engine choices.
However, it wasn't until mid 2019 when the newer and much quieter 2.0-litre diesel engines made the Ranger a much better all-rounder, improving the overall driving and ownership experience.
This new engine called the 2.0-litre EcoBlue engine is a 4-cylinder diesel and comes with:
- 168bhp - 0 to 62mph in 11 seconds, up to 40mpg
- 210bhp - 0 to 62mph in 10 seconds, up to 36mpg
As for towing capacity, the Ranger has decent levels of grunt and depending on spec you'll be able to tow up to 3,500kg.
Bodystyles, Payload and Capacity
The Ford Ranger is available in a 'Single Cab', 'Crew Cab' and 'Double Cab'.
- Single Cab payloads are 1,182kg or 1,252kg dependent on spec/trim.
- Crew Cab payloads are between 1,142kg and 1,197kp dependent on spec/trim.
- Double Cab payloads range from 1,024kg to 1,140kp dependent on spec/trim.
In simple terms, all versions feature the same load width of 1,560mm and load depth of 511mm - whist Wildtrak editions have a slightly larger depth at 541mm.
It's the load lengths that differ due to the cab size. Therefore, two seat, two door Single Cab versions offer the longest load length at 2,317mm whilst the Crew Cab has occasional rear seats with rear doors meaning length is reduced to 1,847mm.
The most popular Double Cab is shorter still with 1,613mm, but offers five full size doors and five seats - it's the most popular seller that fits with most lifestyles.
Interior, Technology, and Safety
Despite its workhorse nature, the Ranger's interior could be mistaken for one of Ford's more family friendly SUVs. The seats offer plenty of support and comfort, while the general build quality is typical Ford and feels more than good enough for a pick-up of this nature.
Later versions are plusher still, and as standard you'll get electric heated door mirrors, air-conditioning, DAB, cruise control and Bluetooth.
Higher spec models such as the Limited feature kit including the 8.0-inch Ford Sync 3 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Rear-view camera, Bi-Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights and full leather interior.
Safety features are generous as standard, and include:
- Electronic stability control
- Emergency brake assist
- Seven airbags
- Trailer sway control
Is the Ford Ranger right for me?
If you're after a pick-up truck that's a solid all-round performer, you can't go wrong with a Ford Ranger.
Sure, a VW Amarok is more sophisticated and a Toyota Hilux is practically indestructible but the Ranger can tempt buyers away from these pair due to its dependability and value. The high specification versions which include the Ranger Raptor may even sway people towards the Ford due to their looks and cool factor.
