Ford Ranger 2015 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Ranger 2015 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Is a Mazda BT-50 or Ford Ranger better for touring?

    It’s nice to see somebody taking the long view when it comes to vehicle ownership. Cars have become an increasingly throw-away commodity, and it seems a shame that all that engineering and development doesn’t get a longer lifespan.

    The BT-50 and Ranger you’ve nominated are, fundamentally, the same vehicles under the skin, so the choice will come down to the options fitted and the trim level that combines the features you want in one package. As a rule of thumb, the five-cylinder engine option will do a better job of hauling a slide-on camper into a headwind and will always be worth more as a trade-in (although that’s clearly not a concern for you).

    If you’re planning to keep the vehicle up to 300,000km, there’s a very good chance you’ll need to spend some money on the vehicle’s direct injection system at some point. A set of injectors and filters as well as an injector pump are all likely to need replacement over the distance you’ve nominated. That said, all modern common rail diesels seem to be in the same boat here, but if you’re prepared to service the vehicle religiously, then those expenses should be kept to a minimum. Take it as read, though, that a modern turbo-diesel will not appreciate neglect in this area.

    The other thing to watch out for is a vehicle that has already had a hard working life, as these dual-cabs often have. The tray-back you want also means the vehicle is likely to have been a work truck rather than a lifestyle accessory, so have any prospect checked independently before handing over the money.

  • Ford Ranger keeps leaking transmission fluid

    It would seem the transmission has somehow been damaged. Get under and have a look to see where the leak is coming from, and hopefully you will see damage that is causing the leak. If it’s a very slow leak as you say it could be that it’s been leaking for a while until the fluid level dropped to the point it couldn't maintain drive any longer.

  • Lots of play in 2015 Ford Ranger tow bar

    No, we haven't had other complaints of this issue. There shouldn't be anything like that amount of movement, makes me wonder if the tongue is the correct one for the bar. Take the car to a towing place, like Hayman-Reece, and have them assess it.

  • Ranger cruise control issues

    Earlier Rangers were plagued by problems with the cruise control, and Ford recalled them, but we're not hearing of the same issues with the current model. Perhaps if you could provide us with more information on what it is yours is doing we might be able to give you more of a guide to what could be wrong.
