Ford Ranger

If there's one thing that Aussie tradies are spoiled for, it's choice.

With the number of big, ladder-framed light commercial utes on offer, it's difficult for any single truck to rise to the top. One truck has done it, however; bigger and bolder than ever before, the Ford Ranger's popularity has escalated to the point that it's stealing the thunder of the previously unassailable Toyota HiLux. The Ranger name has only been used in Australia since 2006, but that doesn't mean that Ford is new to the party. Ford Ranger is really just a new name for the Ford Courier, a nameplate that was used in Australia since 1979.

Available in a range of sizes and body styles and priced from $27,390 for the Ranger XL 2.2 (4x2) up to $61,115 for the Ranger FX4 SPECIAL EDITION, the Ranger can serve as anything from a small, 4x2 single cab to extra and dual cab 4x4 utes with a choice of diesel engines and pickup and cab chassis trays.
