Ford Australia Vice President of Marketing, Sales and Service, Graeme Whickman said the Ranger 4×4 XL was designed in consultation with a number of heavy industries, including the mining industry.

“These industries have very specific demands on their vehicles so that’s why we created the Ranger 4×4 XL Plus. It will be a popular addition to mining industry and business sector fleets but we also expect there to be strong support from private customers who have a particular need for this type of vehicle.” Whickham explained.

The new Ranger is due to arrive in local Ford showrooms from May 2014.
