VIDEO: Hear this supercharged, V8-engined Ranger howl

By Matt Raudonikis, 01 Aug 2017 Custom 4x4s

Coyote-powered dual cab is the Ranger Ford should build

Ford Australia no longer sells a V8-powered ute so leave it to the aftermarket to come up with a hot-rod solution.

Vote for the Ford Ranger V8 to win the 2017 Custom 4x4 of the Year

The only Ford ute you can buy now is a diesel-fuelled Ranger, but these wild Gold Coast boys yanked the busted 3.2 out of this example and shoe-horned in 5.0-litres of supercharged FPV goodness.

With all the usual off-road add-ons, this PX Ranger retains all its 4x4 capabilities, but has a howl that no other dual-cab can match.

Forget your lace-pants wearing Tickford and FX4 offering, this is the 344kW 4x4 ute that Ford should be selling – buyers would be queueing up at showrooms for it.

Read the full story on how it was created in the September 2017 edition of 4x4 Australia Magazine.
