Ford has unveiled a new version of its popular Ranger pickup, the Ranger Platinum, and the car comes with a 3.0 liter V6 turbodiesel.
This new Range Platinum gets a range of upgrades over the standard model, you can see more details below.
Ranger Platinum is available exclusively in five-seat, double cab specification, and powered by Ford’s 3.0-litre V6 turbodiesel engine – also featured in luxury SUVs and the F-150 pickup in North America – producing 240 PS and 600 Nm of torque. Power is delivered through the Ranger’s new electronically controlled full-time all-wheel drive system, combined with Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission with adaptive shift scheduling and mounts re-engineered to reduce noise and vibration.
The result is refined, responsive, confident performance regardless of conditions, and a generous maximum braked towing weight of 3,500 kg. The vehicle also offers the same outstanding load-carrying ability as all Ranger pickups, including a payload exceeding one tonne. 4
The Ranger Platinum exterior builds on the muscular and functional styling of the Ranger pickup family with added sophistication. The new model sits above the high-series Wildtrak – which accounted for 60 per cent of outgoing Ranger model sales in Europe.
