Ford Ranger Tradie – made for the workplace

By February 18, 2021 News

Ford Australia is introducing another limited-run special-edition, the Ford Ranger Tradie, featuring a range of practical, factory-fitted features to appeal to customers looking for a ‘work ready’ pick-up.

Based on the latest Ranger XL 4×4 Double Cab Pick-Up, the Ranger Tradie is equipped with the proven 3.2-litre five-cylinder turbo-diesel and six-speed automatic transmission as standard. The 4×4 system features both high and low-range 4×4 with locking rear differential as well as 800mmi water wading ability. 

Our 3.2-litre five-cylinder turbo-diesel is proven in the marketplace and customers love the engine’s refinement, combined with its durable, workhorse nature,” said Andrew Birkic, President and CEO, Ford Australia and New Zealand. Birkic said Ranger had proved itself to be the right mix of capability, quality and value for many Australian customers.

The Ranger XL Tradie packs a range of factory-fit features suitable for the fleet world, including:

  • Genuine Ford Black nudge bar
  • Lumen 20.5-inch slimline LED Light Bar
  • Unique 16-inch black alloy wheels
  • Black side steps
  • Bedliner
  • Tow bar

The protective bedliner is designed to fit the load area, adding a sense of security from items that may cause damage to the vehicle’s paintwork. The fitted towbar is also an essential feature for tradespeople who tow work gear during the week, and then require a tow vehicle for recreation activities at the weekends.

The Tradie joins a range of enhanced Ford Ranger variants based on core models, including the XL Special Edition, XLS-based Ranger Sport, the XLT-based Ranger FX4 Max, and the Wildtrak X. The Ford Ranger line-up has also achieved a five-star safety rating by the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP), including Autonomous Emergency Braking as standard.
