American website’s view of Ford Ranger in NZ – see video

on June 25 2017 | in Highlights, Industry news, Latest news | by | with Comments Off

American motoring website Autoblog sent reporter David Gluckman to New Zealand to drive the Ford Ranger ute, in part because a revised version of the Ranger goes on sale in the US in 2019 and Autoblog wanted to find out what Americans had been missing.

Gluckman writes for his US audience: “Why New Zealand, you might ask? Because it’s beautiful, because we wanted to go there, and because the Ranger has been the best-selling vehicle in that country for a couple of years running.”

The current Ranger doesn’t meet US crash standards, hence the revised model for the North American market. Writes Gluckman: “Ford is going to build a new one – we believe it will be a refreshed version of the current truck as opposed to a new ground-up design – that can be sold here, as well as China, apparently.

“It should be at least as good as the truck we drove around New Zealand’s southern island – a Wildtrak model with a five-cylinder 3.2-litre diesel and a six-speed automatic with nice stuff like adaptive cruise, lane keeping, and Sync3 with Apple CarPlay.”

Gluckman points to the video of the drive and writes: “The truck you see here isn’t exactly like the one we’ll get in 2019. But we think it’s very representative.”
