WOf course, the most talked about new car of 2022 was the Ford Ranger. As one of the hottest new cars on the Australian market, and with an almost all-new model, the next-generation Ranger was the hot topic of the year.
The next generation is now the current generation or RA Ranger, and after many road tests and vehicle comparisons we were keen to get our dirty bits on one for ourselves. It only made sense for our next build with the most talked about new 4×4 in the country.
We were lucky enough to secure a Ranger Sport V6 from Ford’s demonstration fleet, with just 4000km on the clock and ready for a swap.
The plan is to develop the Ranger as an off-grid touring 4×4, which you can take anywhere in Australia and stay remotely for as long as you need. To achieve this, we are again partnering with some of the biggest names in the 4×4 accessories business to provide their products and services.
