Ford Ranger buying guide

What bodystyles does the Ford Ranger come in?

The Ford Ranger pickup comes in three bodystyles, excluding chassis cab models intended for aftermarket conversion. There’s the regular cab, which has two doors, two seats and the longest load bed at 2.3 metres. Then you’ll find the super cab with two doors and an extra pair of fold-away seats behind the front row, letting you carry four people in exchange for a slightly shorter 1.8-metre bed. Finally, the double cab Ranger is a full four-door pickup with a large cabin and five seats – it has the shortest 1.6-metre load bed.

What engines are in a Ford Ranger?

Ford Rangers now come with just one engine – a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel. You do get a choice of three power outputs, however, with an entry-level 130hp version available on two-seat regular cab models or a 170hp version that’s offered across regular, super and double cab versions. Crew cab Rangers also get the option of a twin-turbo 2.0-litre diesel with 213hp for surprisingly stout performance. A slick-shifting 10-speed automatic is also available for double cab trucks and is standard with the 213hp engine.

Is the Ford Ranger available as an electric pickup truck?

Currently no, you can’t get the Ford Ranger as an EV – it’s offered with diesel power only. A substantial update arrived in 2022 and we expect this version to eventually be offered with a 2.3-litre petrol plug-in hybrid engine later in its model cycle, which will be able to drive for a few miles on electric power alone. There’s no word yet on whether we’ll get a fully battery-powered version but, if the response to its North American F-150 Lightning EV is anything to go by, a Ranger EV must surely be on the cards for the future.

Can I get finance on a used Ford Ranger with Motorpoint?

Yes, Motorpoint has flexible Hire Purchase (HP) finance options available on all pickups and vans, so you can spread the cost for up to five years. Our team will be happy to build a personalised quote for you, give them a call or visit us in-store.

Ford Ranger FAQs

All versions of the Ranger claim to return more than 30mpg, with the most efficient models getting closer to 35mpg. Considering there isn’t much of a fuel economy penalty for choosing one of the more powerful engines, we’d take the small hit to the wallet in exchange for more relaxed performance on the motorway and greater hauling power.

When the current version of the Ranger first arrived in 2011 it scored a strong five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, indicating it’ll perform well in the event of a crash. That rating has since lapsed and would probably be quite a bit lower if NCAP tested the truck today but, considering the heavily updated 2022 version also scored a full five-star rating, Ford’s clearly been keeping up with the safety developments for the Ranger.

If you need a tough pickup that can carry lots of gear in the bed or tow heavy equipment, the Ranger is the perfect tool to get the job done. What’s more, you get all that capability without having to sacrifice much in the way of comfort or technology, with a composed driving experience and a long standard equipment list.

Rangers are only available with a 2.0-litre diesel engine with either 130, 170 or 213hp. The 130hp version is acceptable but does feel a little underpowered when overtaking on the motorway. The 170hp engine is more relaxed but we prefer the 213hp unit because there’s only a minimal fuel-economy penalty for choosing it and it feels much more effortless on the move.

Wildtrack is the range-topping trim level available on the Ranger pickup. Equipment highlights include climate control, roof rails, leather upholstery, heated front seats, rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, and an infotainment system with sat nav, Bluetooth, DAB radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

There’s also the Ranger Raptor. This is a special high-performance version with the mightiest engine and beefed-up brakes and suspension to cope with the demands of off-road racing. You also get a ludicrous sporty body kit with muscular wheelarches, making the Ranger Raptor look like one of the meanest vehicles on UK roads.
