2017 Ford Ranger announced, comes loaded with extras


The 2017 Ford Ranger has been revealed and it comes with greater value throughout the model range.

Across the line-up, all pick-up variants will benefit from reversing sensors and camera. In addition, XLT models will gain front parking sensors while the range topping Wilktrak will receive the newest SYNC3 infotainment system.

According to Graeme Whickman, CEO of Ford Australia, the “standard new features such as rear view camera and SYNC 3 will help our customers get more done at work while staying better connected to their lives“.


All models will also benefit from a revised 3.2-litre diesel engine which according to Ford will meet the latest Euro 5 emissions standard.

The Ranger has been incredibly successful within Australia having come within 310 units of the HiLux this year in sales. Ford suggests the utes success comes down to their $2 billion investment in local design and engineering.
