All-new Ford Ranger teased ahead of its official debut

Article by Christian A., on September 21, 2010

Ford released today the first teaser with the all-new Ranger, which will make its debut at this year’s Australian International Motor Show on October 15.

Designed and engineered at Ford’s Campbellfield product development and Geelong proving ground facilities, the new Ranger will not be available in the United States and is part of the wave of global products driven by the ONE Ford strategy.

But why Australia, you ask? Apparently, this country played a leading role in the development of this latest global Ford product.

As you may know already, Ranger prototypes have been spotted several times by automotive spy photographers and according to Ford, the development of the car clocked more than 1 million kilometres of testing in the toughest conditions.

Introducing the all-new Ranger

Bold, powerful and confident, the all-new Ford Ranger makes its world debut at the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney. The new face of ‘Built Ford Tough’ for compact truck customers in 180 markets around the world, Ranger is the result of an all-new global compact truck platform developed in Australia.

The truck – under cover of heavy camouflage has been shot by automotive spy photographers all over the world, as development units clocked more than 1 million kilometres of testing in the toughest truck conditions, from the Outback to the deserts of the Middle East to the Alps in Europe.

From impressive gains in power and fuel economy – the result of its new engine family – to outstanding truck capability that includes exceptional towing and payload capacity, the next-generation Ford Ranger emerges as a clear segment leader. It not only builds on the tremendous Ford Ranger heritage of truck capability, but it also gives truck owners a spacious, comfortable, feature-filled interior and sophisticated driving experience that they would only expect from a car.
