Ford announced the European premiere of the facelifted Ranger pickup will be held at the2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
No visible changes compared to the versions for other markets have been applied and the vehicle is still featuring a rugged look with a massive chrome grille and sweptback headlights. The side profile remains almost unchanged compared to the outgoing model, while at the back there’s a pair of revised taillights.
The Blue Oval will also showcase the range-topping Ranger Wildtrak variant with its metallic grey finish for the new trapezoidal grille, side mirrors, door handles, side air vents, load-bed rails and tail lamps. Other visual improvements include rectangular fog lamps, a unique sports hoop, machined 18-inch alloy wheels and bold Wildtrak graphics.
Thanks to the addition of engine start-stop system, new final drive ratio options and Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS), the average fuel consumption has been lowered by up to 17 per cent. The improved diesel lineup features a 2.2-liter TDCi unit with 160 PS (118 kW) variant and the powerful 200 PS (147 kW) five-cylinder 3.2-liter TDCi. Both six-speed manual and automatic transmissions are available and customers can select four-wheel drive and two-wheel drive variants.
