Ford Ranger gets minor interior tweaks…
The Ford Ranger has copped a couple of minor interior tweaks based on customer and dealer feedback, says Ford Australia.
THE FORD RANGER continues to out-pace the Toyota HiLux for 4×4 sales this year, and now the Ranger will be tweaked, very slightly, to improve customer comfort based on customer and dealer feedback.
Buyers will be able to access a new leather option on 4×2 and 4×4 XLT Double Cab variants which includes black leather accented seats (front and rear) and leather door trim inserts ($1650). With a leather option now available across the range.
The Wildtrak variant (pictured) will also get an upgraded leather option with front and rear seats “design and quality has been improved to better resist staining and soiling. The seats will also have less piping and a shorter front cushion overhang to improve comfort. These upgrades come at no extra cost to the customer,” Ford said.
In a short statement, President and CEO at Ford Australia, Graeme Whickman, said “Our engineers and designers have listened to what customers really want, taking their feedback and building it into an already superb range.
“The Ranger is a class-leading vehicle, one that has already won back-to-back Drive Best Ute awards in 2015 and 2016 (XLT variant), but customers can truly see that Ford is listening and aiming to produce the best vehicles possible.”
Other changes, include an external temperature display with Frost/Ice Warning, which was previously only available on XLT and Wildtrak, will now be standard on all variant except the XL Plus. All models will have secure fingers added to cup holders to better secure bottles and cups. All XLS models will have the outer tie down hooks removed for a sleeker appearance. There will be no price change.
