Ford Ranger Comparison
The new Ford Ranger is one of the most talked about new cars in Australia and for good reason given it has won CarExpert's Ute of The Year 2023.
Wait times for the new Ranger vary depending on variant but can be from immediate to around six months, for the likes of the Wildtrack and Raptor. Ute buyers have certainly picked the Ranger as their favourite ute offering in the Australian market and it continues to be a very popular purchase.
The new-generation Ranger ute has a bolder design, more interior technology, full-time four-wheel drive in some variants, a V6 diesel option, and plug-in hybrid-ready architecture.
Ford developed, designed and engineered the Ford Ranger and Ford Everest in Australia.
The 2023 Ford Ranger is available with a choice of four different turbocharged powertrains ranging from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel to a fire-breathing 3.0-litre EcoBoost twin-turbo petrol V6.
Standard on the entry-level XL is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine producing 125kW of power and 405Nm of torque. This is exclusively mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and is available in two- and four-wheel drive configurations, depending on the variant.
Available on the rest of the range, excluding the Baja-ready Raptor, is the familiar 2.0-litre Bi-Turbo four-cylinder diesel engine producing 154kW (down 3kW on the outgoing Ranger) and an unchanged 500Nm. This is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and is available in in two- and part-time four-wheel drive configurations, depending on the variant.
The 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, which produces 184kW and 600Nm, is available in the XLT double cab-chassis and the XLT, Sport, Wildtrak and Platinum double cab pickup models. This is also mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, with drive being sent through a full-time four-wheel drive system.
