The new Ford Ranger won in a group of seven vehicles reviewed, said to be the most comprehensive pick-up test 4x4 Magazine has ever conducted.
Nigel Fryatt, editor, 4x4 Magazine, said: "Ford's new Ranger has significantly raised the bar in the pick-up market. Our extensive test showed the variety of products that are now on the UK market, and the Ranger topped them all with better overall ability, superb ride quality and an interior that makes it hard to believe this is a commercial vehicle. Indeed, no other pick-up came close in terms of interior comfort and specification."
Ford UK Managing Director Mark Ovenden said: "The awards keep on coming for the new Ford Ranger as it continues to assert its presence in the market. Our customers have really welcomed the introduction of the all-new model, boosting sales by nearly 20 per cent compared with last year."
