    Ford Australia upped prices of its Ranger utes for 2024, but has kept them the same – with one exception – for what it calls model year 2024.5.

    Updated models enter production in March, and will arrive in showrooms around mid-year.

    For information on the Ranger Raptor, check out our separate Ranger Raptor price and specs article.

    UPDATE, 18/01/2024We’ve updated this article with changes for MY24.5.

    UPDATE, 17/09/2023 – Ford Australia is hiking Ranger pricing by between $500 and $1200. The increases will come into effect for all vehicles produced from January 1, 2024. Customers with existing orders contracted as of September 15, 2023 are price protected.

    The Ford Ranger line-up starts at $36,880 before on-road costs for the XL single cab-chassis 4×2.

    Only the XLS Bi-Turbo dual-cab ute, now available exclusively with four-wheel drive, has received a price hike.

    It’s up by $1950, but has gained the previously optional Towing Pack and XLS Tech Pack as standard.

    In addition to the XLS 4×2, the XL Bi-Turbo 4×2 dual cab-chassis and XL Bi-Turbo super-cab 4×2 ute have been axed. The limited edition Wildtrak X has also finished its run.

    The option package range has also been simplified, with off-road packs for 4×2 XL and XLT models removed from the option list, while those remaining have received price increases.

    As on the related Everest, the Ranger gains Pro Trailer Backup Assist. It’s standard on the Wildtrak, Platinum and Raptor, and available as part of the 4×4 XLT and Sport utes’ optional Touring Pack which increases in price from $1290 to $1650.

    “The driver ‘steers’ the trailer via the outer ring of the drive mode controller on the centre console,” explained Ford advanced driver assist systems engineer Zack McIntyre.

    “As the driver turns the dial, the steering wheel, which the driver doesn’t need to touch during the manoeuvre, turns to direct the trailer where it needs to go.”

    The system is activated with the press of the trailer icon on the drive mode selector.

    Ford has expanded the availability of its Flexible Rack System, previously standard only on the Platinum and Wildtrak X.

    The sliding rack can be locked into one of five preset locations along the length of the Ranger’s tub.

    You can now specify the Sport with it, deleting sports bar and load box access points; it’s also optional on the Wildtrak, removing the sailplane and box rails.

    The base Ranger XL now comes standard with heavy-duty suspension, with thicker rear springs and new front and rear dampers with a revised tune.
