Advantages: Nice handling, comes in a variety of specs, strong build.

Disadvantages: Poor braking system, less refined than its rivals.

Summary: A much improved effort by Ford who have produced a solid if not spectacular on and off-roader. Good handling with a redesigned exterior and comfortable cabin.

New FORD RANGER Review:
With a generous offering of specifications the Ford Ranger can be considered a diverse all-rounder, performing well as either a tough pickup or comfortable passenger vehicle. Built by Mazda, the Ranger is very similar to its sister, the Mazda BT-50, though it is much stronger and has far more advanced handling than Fordís last attempt. The newer model has been given a major facelift, re-designed at the front and rear end to be bolder and sharper. There are a number of different versions available on the market. A Regular Cab with two seats, a Super Cab, with additional rear seats, and a Double cab, which is a four-door five-seater. Though the latter is only presented with four wheel drive, the others have the option of either being in two or four wheel drive. The Ranger comes with either a 143bhp, 2.5 litre TDCi diesel or a 156bhp 3.0 litre TDCi, which is much more powerful, though both have good handling on and off the road. The payload capacity depends on the specifications and ranges from 1175kg to 1235kg. However, the brakes are not especially strong and the Euro NCAP crash test returned a rather poor two stars for adult safety, though the child rating received a slightly better three stars. Dependable and tough on and off the road, well equipped and a spacious interior means that the Ranger is a decent choice for independent businesses and outdoor activity-lovers alike.
