Thanks to Ford Australia for a great day at Melbourne 4×4 Proving ground to test the capabilities of the new Ranger and Everest Range, including the new Ranger Raptor performance off-road vehicle. 4×4 Dual cab utes and SUV’s have surged in popularity among those who want the best of both worlds.
From the entry level XL to the range topping Wildtrack (I see the Raptor in a class of its own), the ranger proved it has the equipment and technology to tackle the toughest assignments. With hill descent control across the range navigating steep descents has never been safer.
With seven seats the Everest has room for the whole family – but it’s far more than a shopping trolley. With 4×4 Low Range and Diff, steep rocky tracks proved to be no challenge.
Ford’s Ranger Raptor in full flight. The smaller 2.0L Bi turbo engine may encounter some resistance among those who traditionally opt for bigger is better. The Ranger also features completely re-engineered suspension with coil sprung watts link rear end.
