The Ford Ranger is one of the most popular dual-cab utes in Australia. Developed and engineered locally by Australian Engineers (but built overseas), it is the closest thing to an Australian car currently on sale.
The Ranger badge has been used on pick-ups and trucks since the 1980s, and was incredibly popular in the United States as well as South America.
There is a Ford Ranger for almost every budget, with models costing between $30,000 to almost $80,000. The more popular dual-cab pick-ups sit at the more expensive end of that spectrum.
Thanks to a combination of on-road refinement, off-road capability, snazzy features, and dependable tow and load capacity, the Ford Ranger has managed to establish itself as a popular choice for buyers.
The Ford Ranger is built at three different factories around the world: Rayon, Thailand; Silverton, South Africa; and Wayne, Michigan. All Australian Ford Rangers come from the plant in Thailand.
