With an eye on the mining industry, Ford has announced a new Ranger variant, the Ranger 4x4 XL Plus.

The Ranger 4x4 XL Plus will be available in Single Cab Chassis, Double Cab Chassis and Double Cab Pick-up models.

Packaged to appeal to industry fleet buyers and government departments, the XL Plus will also be made available to private buyers.

Ford Australia Vice President of Marketing, Sales and Service, Graeme Whickman, said Ford had worked with key industries, including the mining sector, to develop the Ranger XL Plus.

“These industries have very specific demands on their vehicles so that’s why we created the Ranger 4x4 XL Plus,” Whickman said. “It will be a popular addition to mining industry and business sector fleets but we also expect there to be strong support from private customers who have a particular need for this type of vehicle.”

All XL Plus Rangers come standard with the top-spec 3.2-litre turbo-diesel engine and six-speed automatic transmission.

Other notable standard features include a locking rear differential, a deep cycle auxillary battery and a 3500kg tow rating.

A 5-star ANCAP rating means the XL Plus Rangers meet the requirements of large fleet companies for new vehicle purchases.

Ranger 4x4 XL Plus standard features include:

  • 4x4 shields / mud flaps / tow bar
  • Daytime running lights
  • Running boards (Double Cabs only)
  • 17-inch steel wheels and All-Terrain tyres (Continental 265/65 R17)
  • Heavy duty canvas seat covers
  • Expanded wiring harness and switch bezel
  • Front battery 75 amp hours
  • Second battery 80 amp hours deep cycle discharge Gel battery
  • Second battery isolator
  • Moulded black bumpers

Optional: Steel bull bar (retains 5-star ANCAP rating)

The Ranger 4x4 XL Plus range will arrive in Ford dealerships from May, 2014.
