Due to customer and dealer feedback, there have been some small changes announced for Ford’s bread-and-butter offering, the PX MkII Ranger 2017MY range.
Graeme Whickman, President and CEO, Ford Australia 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,” added Whickman.
Due to this feedback, black leather accented front and rear seats, as well as leather door trim inserts, will now be a $1,650 option on all 4x2 and 4x4 XLT Double Cab variants.
Sticking with the seat theme, the Wildtrak front and rear seat design and quality has been reconsidered. The seats will have better stain and soiling resistance while the comfort should be improved through a reduction in piping and a shorter front cushion overhang. Thankfully these upgrades come at no extra cost to the customer.
Finally, some small changes include the addition of an External Temperature Display (Outside Temperature Thermometer) with Frost/Ice Warning as standard across all variants except for the XL Plus. There are also secure fingers added to the cup holders to improve bottle and cup holding ability. And in the XLS models, the outer tie down hooks are no more as a sleeker appearance appears to be favoured.
These small changes to the select few models mentioned in the PX MkII range are effective immediately according to Ford.
Let’s start a Car Conversation, are these small changes enough for the Ranger to outsell the HiLux?
