Ford revamps Ranger pick-up

Ford is showcasing a new pick-up truck at the 2011 Commercial Vehicle Show this week ahead of its release later this year.

The all-new Ford Ranger is built around a six-speed Duratorq TDCi diesel engine and is on show at the NEC in Birmingham until tomorrow (April 14th).

It offers a class-leading towing capability of up to 3,350kg, as well as a 1,333kg payload capacity and an increased load box volume compared with its predecessor.

Motorists will have the option of 4x2 and 4x4 drivetrains and three cab styles - Single, Double and Rear Access Panel.

Jesus Alonso, Ford of Europe's director for commercial vehicle marketing, sales and service, said: "This all-new model will reinforce the reputation of the Ranger brand with its bold new appearance, improved depth of capability for hard working businesses, and new levels of comfort, technology and safety."

He added that the new Ranger also sports a "significantly improved" fuel economy of up to 37.2mpg.

Commercial drivers might be interested to note that Ford will release an updated version of the best-selling Transit van in 2012.ADNFCR-3205-ID-800497964-ADNFCR
