Ford's Ranger remains a popular choice for buyers, as evidenced by its number two position on the sales chart, and the latest deals look likely to continue the nameplate's dominance.
Of interest this month is the Ranger XL Hi-Rider 4x2 dual-cab ute. Higher ground clearance lets it work in places that utes with a standard clearance may falter, while buyers may have little need for a full-blown 4x4 and prefer the less expensive and less fuel thirsty 4x2.
The XL Hi-Rider has a 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel and six-speed automatic transmission. Standard equipment includes six airbags, Android Auto/Apple CarPlay connection, and a five-star ANCAP crash rating.
The price is now $38,990 drive-away, an impressive saving of $6638 considering this is a 2020-built vehicle.
If you really have to have a 4x4, Ford has the higher-spec Ranger XLT 4x4 dual-cab ute with manual transmission and 3.2-litre five-cylinder turbo-petrol for $53,990 including on-road costs, a saving of a whopping $9172.
If you want an even bigger discount, go for the automatic version of this 4x4 that is now $55,990 drive away, saving $9498. The XLT adds features including satellite navigation, LED headlights and digital radio.
