If private buyers and small businesses can't find satisfaction in the expansive 21-model Ranger family, Ford has a new 22nd option that might be just the ticket.

Priced at $48,090 (plus on-roads), the XLS is based on the 4x4 XL double-cab 3.2 litre model, equipped with a six-speed manual transmission.

Briding the gap between the XL and XLT models, the XLS gains a locking rear differential, 16-inch alloy wheels, front foglights, and carpeted floor coverings.

Other additional exterior styling tweaks include a silver-accented radiator grille and body-coloured mirror housings.

“We’re excited to be able to offer the XLS to our customers, many of whom have been asking for a mid-range model between the XL and XLT,” Ford Australia General Manager Marketing, David Katic, said.

The 4x4 XLS shares the following standard equipment with the 4x4 XL Double Cab Pick-Up 3.2 litre:

  • 147kW/470Nm TDCi Duratorq engine
  • Equal segment-leading 3500kg towing capacity
  • 6-speed manual transmission
  • Cruise control
  • Power windows and mirrors
  • Remote central locking with volumetric alarm
  • 3.5’’ ice blue multi-function display
  • Inner and outer tie-down hooks
  • Steering wheel mounted audio / cruise control buttons
  • Overhead console
  • 4-way manual driver seat adjuster with lumber support
  • Driver and front-passenger airbags, front seat side airbags and side curtain airbags
  • Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) incorporating ABS with Emergency Brake Assist, Trailer Sway Control, Roll Over Mitigation, Hill Launch Assist, Hill Descent Control and Load Adaptive Control
  • 2 child seat upper anchorage points
  • 12-volt auxiliary power sockets
  • Automatic headlamps
  • Manual locking tailgate

The new Ranger has proved a popular offering for Ford, with year-to-date sales doubling to 3188 by the end of February, compared to 1414 for the same period in 2012.


Pricing (excludes on-road costs)

The Ranger XLS is priced at $48,090 in Australia. It is available from May.
