Overall verdict

"The Ford Ranger is a rugged and durable workhorse built in the same mould as pick-ups found in America, with muscle car styling and big load carrying potential."

Ford Ranger 2019

Like its stateside cousins, the Ranger is strong, with a 3.5 tonne towing limit. It is impressive off-road too, which makes it ideal for those who regularly need to take one-tonne payloads off the beaten track. 


The third-generation Ranger was introduced in 2011 and initially came with a 2.2-litre - with 125PS or 150PS - alongside a more powerful 200PS 3.2-litre turbodiesel. In 2013 Ford gave the 2.2 turbodiesel a small power increase, with 130PS or 160PS. In 2019, the 2.2 diesel was replaced with the 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel with 170 or 213PS and the option of a 10-speed automatic gearbox. 


Good to drive in all conditions, the Ranger benefits from smooth and responsive controls that make it an easy drive on busy motorways or twisty B roads, even with a fully laden trailer in tow. It is good off-road when fitted with four-wheel drive, with high and low ratio gearing that make is easy to tackle steep ruts and inclines.


All models get a large loadbed, with the choice of single, super or double cab bodystyles. Single cab models will carry the most - a maximum of 1269kg - while double cabs will take around 1100kg. Getting into the loadbay is easy and the wide opening makes it simple for fork lift drivers to access.


Ford offers a wide range of tonneau covers, shutters and bedliners to protect your pick-up from damage and kept it secure. There is a range or factory-fit hardtop covers too, which effectively transforms the back of the Ranger into a panel van. Maximum towing capacities were upgraded from 3.3 tonnes to 3.5 tonnes as part of the 2013 facelift. 


The cabin is well-made and comfortable with a spacious and durable interior that genuinely feels like it's built to cope with everyday working life. Finding a good driving position is easy and even entry-level models get comfortable and well-padded cloth seats. Double cab models will easily carry four adults and, as you'd expect, things get a bit more luxurious as you move up the trim levels and the range-topping Wildtrak getting leather seats, soft-touch trims and a large eight-inch touchscreen.


The Ford Ranger’s credentials as a workhorse are unquestionable – especially when you factor in the 2013 updates - but it does suffer from a lack of refinement. Especially when compared to the Nissan Navara and Volkswagen Amarok. That said, if you want a heavy duty workhorse, capable of cutting it off-road and moving big loads, few pick-ups come close to matching the Ranger. 


Similar pick-ups to consider include the Mercedes X-Class, Volkswagen Amarok and the Toyota Hilux.
