2012 FORD RANGER

Ford has announced Australian pricing and specifications for the upcoming 2012 Ranger line-up, ahead of its October launch.

The new Ranger will be offered in Single, Super and Double Cab styles, along with Pick-up and Cab-chassis bodies. There will be four trim grades, three engines and three transmission choices.

"Designed from the ground up, this highly anticipated all-new model range, available in both 4x2 and 4x4, has been comprehensively developed to meet the specific needs of Australian ute and light truck customers," Ford Australia President and CEO Bob Graziano said.

"Achieving this meant an Australian-based four-year development programme involving almost 500 engineers from around the Ford world. It also involved exhaustive testing in some of the world's harshest operating environments."

The 2012 Ranger line-up will kick off with the 3.2 litre turbodiesel variants, followed in late 2011 and early 2012 by the 2.2 litre diesel and 2.5 petrol models.

With the later launch of the petrol and smaller diesel options, the entry point in October will be the 4x4 Single Cab-chassis XL, paired with a six-speed manual and priced at $40,890.

The most affordable 4x2 model at launch will be the Super Cab Pick-up Hi-Rider XLT, priced at $43,240 and equipped with a six-speed manual.

At the top of the 4x2 range will be the $44,490 3.2 litre Double Cab Pick-up Hi-Rider XLT, and topping the 4x4 list will be the 3.2 litre flagship Double Pick-up Ranger Wildtrak at $57,390.

When all 20 variants in the Ranger family are available, the most affordable model will be the $19,740 4x2 Single Cab-chassis XL, powered by a 2.5 litre petrol engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission.

The bottom price rung in the 4x4 list will be occupied by the $38,390 Single Cab-chassis XL, driven by the 2.2 litre diesel and a six-speed manual.

Note: prices are Manufacturer's List Price and do not include on-road costs.

    What a disgraceful price rise! Comparing RRP of current XLT and Wiltrack shows a $7,000 and $8,000 increase respectively. Take into account the run out deals at the moment and the rise becomes even worse. I don't know how Ford can justify the massive increase, especially given the strong dollar. There will be buyer resistance at this level. Toyota, Amarok, Nissan etc. will be happy! Lets hope Mazda doesn't try the same trick with the BT-50. I will be looking elsewhere now.

      Sorry Graham, yes it is a price hike, but it is a a very different car. Nothing like that last. Toyota cant be too happy as they dropped there prices by around $2000. And look at the price market. SR5 is around $56,000ish, Navara 550 $63,000ish and Amarok $58,000ish. So $57,000 drive away for a car that beats all the others (except the Navara 550 for power)in all areas. Yes it may be expensive but that is the market.

      What does Hilux offer that is anything close to the Ranger. Its an old, out dated car. And im sorry. Toyota is not the "unbreakable" car it use to be witch is a shame.

      It is interesting to look at the sales charts with Hilux and Navara high in the top 10. Ranger and BT50 are nowhere to be seen. Its a little confusing, but may point to the actual drive away deals being done.

    I have spent the last week driving all of them, and I am buying a ranger, nearly got the Mazda as it is considerably chaeper untill I drove it, they feel heaps different, Mazda feels like a truck, Ranger rides like a Falcon.

    DO you have any idea how much 2012 Ford XLT and Wildtrack will cost in the Philippines? Hope it's not that expensive as I think they will be importing from Thailand..
