This is what Mark Oastler liked most about this particular version of the Ford Ranger: Payload/tow ratings, Engine outputs/performance, Ride quality/refinement

The Ford Ranger Ute competes with similar models like the Mazda BT-50, Volkswagen Amarok and Toyota HiLux in the Under $40k category category.

The 2024 Ford Ranger carries a braked towing capacity of up to 3500 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Ford Ranger 2024 Q&As

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

  • When should I replace the timing chain on my 2019 Ford Ranger Wildtrak?

    Good news. Instead of a rubber toother timing belt, the engine in your Ranger has a timing chain. While the rubber belt type generally requires periodic replacement, the timing chain in your car should last the life of the engine.

  • 2015 Ford Ranger XLT 3.2 is going into limp mode on hot days

    A modern car like the Ranger has a heap of sensors that warn the on-board computer of something that’s getting too hot, causing the car to enter limp home mode to avoid further damaging itself. That means you could be looking at a problem as varied as the condition of the radiator and its plumbing, the intercooler, coolant pump, the EGR valve and more. Perhaps it’s a simple case of low coolant triggering the limp home. Certainly, these engines can lose coolant if the EGR valve is damaged or leaking.

    But then you can also move along to the driveline, because a too-hot transmission will also trigger a limp-home situation. Is the transmission cooler working properly? Does the transmission have the correct quantity of fluid in it?

    Start with the basics and don’t be afraid to give the car an electronic scan as the fault codes it has logged could be a big clue in what component is causing the grief.

  • How long should an oil pump for a 2013 Ford Ranger PX last?

    The original vane-type oil pump fitted to the 2.2 and 3.2-litre PX Ranger engines was a source of great misery for some owners with failures and a peculiar oil-changing regime forced upon owners. If the gear-driven style pump you've replaced it with is a good quality item, it should last the remainder of the vehicle's service life.

  • Is a blown cylinder in my 2017 Ford Ranger Wildtrak covered under warranty?

    Unfortunately, because your car was delivered before May 1 2018, it's only covered by Ford's three-year warranty, which, of course, has expired. New Fords delivered after that 2018 cut-off were covered by an longer, five-year warranty, but that's not much use to you.

    The best thing you can do is tackle Ford Australia's customer service department to see if they're open to covering part of the cost of repairs on a pro-rata basis. This is a sometimes a possibility if the vehicle is only just out of warranty or has covered very low kilometres with a full service history. But in your case, I wouldn't be holding my breath.
