Ford Ranger 2017

The 2017 Ford Ranger range of configurations is currently priced from $14,990. Our most recent review of the 2017 Ford Ranger resulted in a score of 8.4 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Contributing Journalist Mark Oastler had this to say at the time: To be honest, we're not big on 'special editions' in which the only thing special or unique about them is purely aesthetic. If the FX4 was true to Ford's US traditions and included some special equipment for improved off-road performance, then we'd probably be more excited about it. Fact is, it's just an XLT in a different costume. If that's worth an extra $3500, only you can decide.

Ford Ranger 2017 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Ranger 2017 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Should I buy extended warranty?

    All the feedback I’ve had Steve makes me think that these extended warranties are a waste of your money. They tend to be very cleverly worded to ensure that the things that typically go wrong with cars of this age are not covered.

    Have a close look at the fine print and make a decision from there. But if the warranty doesn’t cover things like fuel-injector and fuel-pump problems, or diesel-particulate filter dramas (all big dollar items on a Ford Ranger) then I’d be asking some difficult questions. And then leaving with my money still in my pocket.

  • Ford Ranger 2017: Ford won't fix the rusty chassis

    I’d be interested to know why Ford won’t help with your problem, but it’s a fact that there are some circumstances where a manufacturer isn’t obliged to fix a problem like this. If the problem has been caused by negligence or abuse on the part of the owner, then you begin to enter a very grey area. On the other hand, if the rust is due to a manufacturing fault such as poor rust-proofing at the factory, then it’s a different story.

    I contacted Ford Australia about this, but without more information, the spokesperson could only really refer me to the warranty fine-print and, in particular, this couple of paragraphs:

    • Ford will warrant a part which it finds to be defective in factory materials or workmanship under normal use and operation
    • A part won’t be replaced as a consequence of the owner’s failure to maintain, use or operate the vehicle in accordance with recommendations and instructions.

    Honestly, your email raises more questions than answers. Is the corrosion surface rust or actual rot in the metal? Has the car been used in the mining industry? Has it been used to launch boats into salt-water on a frequent basis? Has it been submerged in floodwater at any stage? Has it been badly damaged and repaired? On what basis did Ford deny your request to have the vehicle fixed under warranty?

    As for your options, you could pay to have the chassis replaced, but that only makes me wonder about the rest of the metalwork in the vehicle. Or, you could talk to a consumer advocacy group and see what your legal options amount to. The real job will be convincing an arbitrator that the rust has been caused by poor quality rather than any owner abuse or negligence.

  • Ford Ranger 2017: Why is there a loud clicking sound from behind the dash?

    The noise doesn’t sound normal. Get under the dash and try to locate the source, that should tell you what needs fixing, and then have a dealer or mechanic assess it.
