2017 Ford Ranger plate sale includes five-year warranty

2017 Ford Ranger plate sale includes five-year warranty

Ford is extending the warranty period on double-cab Rangers as part of its 2017 plate clearance sale – but you have to be quick

Plate clearance sales  are often a good time to snag a new-car deal, but Ford is offering a further incentive to anyone interested in a 2017-plated Ranger ute.

For eligible vehicles purchase before the end of Januray, Ford is offering a five year/200,000km warranty on selected Ranger models, almost doubling the standard three-year/100,000km guarantee.

The special warranty applies to all Ranger models.

This isn’t the first time Ford has provided an extended warranty. Last year it offered five years/100,000km on Ford Territory. By then the Territory had ceased production, which is a far cry from Ranger, which is by far the biggest selling model in the Ford line-up.

It would be fair to assume the offer means manual versions of the family-friendly double-cab ute haven’t sold as quickly as the automatic versions, but if a DIY shifter is suitable for your needs, this deal is for you.

The official line from Ford is that incentives are often provided to Ranger buyers as it sits in a highly competitive market.

“The Ranger 4x4 was Australia’s most popular 4x4 vehicle in 2017, and as such competes in a highly competitive market. We’re continually looking for ways to improve our owner experience, from our Free Loan Car Program, Vehicle Report Card or Sat-nav Updates.”
