Whichever model you go for, you’ll be impressed by the Ranger’s driving experience and on-board technology. There’s also a wide choice of engines, with three 2.0 four-cylinder diesel engines delivering between 128bhp and 213bhp, as well as a slightly thirsty 3.2-litre five-cylinder unit badged 3.2 Duratorq 200. Most people will opt for one of the 2.0-litre diesels, with the popular 168bhp variant delivering sprightly performance and strong pulling power from low down in the rev range.
While no pickup offers the smoothest ride, the Ranger is one of the best in this regard and feels more settled than firmer rivals like the Toyota Hilux. Overall, it’s a great all-rounder.
