MELBOURNE, 26 Jun., 2015 – Ford has announced recommended pricing for the broad-ranging 2015 PX Ranger MkII 4×2 and 4×4 lineup.
Customers will be able to choose between 37 different variants – 11 4×2 variants and 26 4×4 variants – in the PX Ranger MkII lineup.
The range entry 4×2 XL Single Cab Chassis 2.2-litre TDCi manual transmission is available at a Manufacturer’s List Price (MLP) of $27,390* and the capable six-speed manual XLT at $54,390*. The range tops out at the impressive 4×4 Wildtrak Double Cab Pick-up 3.2-litre TDCi six-speed automatic at $60,090* (MLP). The 2015 series range includes XL, XL Plus, XLS, XLT and Wildtrak.
The PX Ranger MkII range also features a suite of safety and driver assist aides that are not currently available in a Toyota HiLux. The Ford PX Ranger MkII will also have a higher maximum payload than the current Hilux.
“Apart from providing an extensive range of 4×2 and 4×4 models for just about any application, customers also have access to a range of advanced driver assist technologies like Adaptive Cruise Control + Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist, making the PX Ranger MkII a very smart choice,” Ford President and CEO Graeme Whickman said. “This level of technology was previously only seen on luxury European cars.
“PX Ranger MkII customers have the power of choice; from a 2.2-litre XL workhorse, right up to the popular 3.2-litre TDCi XLT series and premium 3.2-litre TDCi Wildtrak, which our customers love because it effortlessly combines week-day duties with the ability to become a versatile weekend leisure vehicle.”
With car-like levels of comfort and refinement, combined with the host of smart technologies, including SYNC connectivity, the 2015 Ranger is also very capable.
PX Ranger MkII 4×4 models continue with an electronic ‘shift-on-the-fly’ four-wheel drive system between high-ratio two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive on the move, electronic locking rear differential (available on selected models) Hill Descent Control and 3,500 kg towing capacity#. With an unsurpassed 800 mm water wading ability** in the Pick-up segment too, on 4×2 Hi-Rider and 4×4 models, this means Ranger can go just that little bit further.
The award-winning Ranger is well proven in the Australian marketplace, having just taken out Delivery magazine’s 2015 Ute of the Year against seven competitors. Delivery magazine judges hailed the Ranger for its features, powerful 3.2-litre TDCi engine and driveability.
