Engine, Fuel and Emissions
The Ford Ranger has to have an engine that can cope with some of the strenuous terrain and harsh environments that pick-up trucks are required for. Ford have produced exactly that with engineering a new range of Duratorq Stage V diesel engines that have extra capability and torque. That wasn’t enough for Ford though; to make sure you can easily transport a high payload up various terrains, they have now made this a reality but with outstanding fuel economy and MPG. The 150PS/110kW 2.2 litre 4 cylinder engine can provide up to 375Nm of torque and an impressive fuel economy figure of 36.2mpg (combined cycle). At the same time, the 200PS 3.2 litre TDCi Diesel option provided up to 470Nm of torque. If you go for larger engines, the Ranger’s high-powered engine uses a Variable Geometry Turbocharger which takes control of exactly how much power and torque is being used. It also benefits your start-up and provides outstanding torque when in lower gears. This reduces the amount of emissions you produce and your fuel consumption. Another addition that you get with this vehicle’s engine is that it meets the ruthless European Stage V emission requirements. You can rest assured that you are driving in a safe, environmentally friendly and truly powerful truck that is surefooted in all terrains. There is a lot of information on fuel consumption and emissions for vans in the UK, you can also learn about how the diesel engines are the cleanest to date from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. Ford has also engineered a unique Electrical Energy Management function which provides electric power to the vehicle and includes the generation of electric power (alternator), saves energy in the battery and the consumption control.
Ford Ranger’s Safety and Security
There is nothing more important than your safety. Ford has put this at the forefront of their ingenious engineering. Their vehicles are made to make sure you’re protected and that your property or cargo is safely secured. One of the safety measures for the new Ford Ranger is the Electronic Stability Programme which can detect any changes from the driving path that you have selected and automatically corrects your line on the road. This makes sure you remain in control whatever the weather. The Programme makes sure you remain in control, even when descending steep hills, whether it be in reverse or even off road. The Hill-Start-Assist ensures you do not roll backwards when starting on a hill by continuing the braking pressure whilst you change from the brake to the accelerator. Many customers want the Ranger if they have trailers to tow. Ford has provided a Trailer Sway Control to help these people out. The Trailer Sway Control can register if it begins to sway from side to side, then slowing your speed gradually until there is no more swaying and your trailer is back to being stable. The Load Adaptive Control also comes with the Ranger, using an Electronic Stability Programme to predict if the vehicle is laden or un-laden by assessing the steering wheel commands, adding to your control with any payload. If, for instance, the payload you have is a high one and you are on uneven terrain, the Roll-Over Mitigation can assess the danger level of the conditions and if need be, start up the Electronic Stability Programme to help by controlling the speed, thus regaining stability. In addition to this, the Ford Ranger can intricately control the level of torque given from the engine to the wheels. The vehicle’s Traction Control System gives better traction, more accurate driving and stability on the more difficult ground, such as loose gravel or ice. If this is not reassuring enough on the safety side of things, the fact that the Ranger is the first pick-up truck to receive a 5-start safety rating, the maximum that can be rewarded, by Euro NCAP, should allow you to drive without a worry. The Ranger has been awarded this maximum star rating due to the various different airbags all around the vehicle and also due to the unique Electronic Stability Programme. Not only are you kept safe with airbags from inside the truck, you are also kept safe with the premium body construction, which redirects the impact of a crash away from the driver or passengers. The braking system has also been scrutinised by Ford’s engineers. By combining the Anti-lock Braking System and the Electronic brake-force distribution, you get truly amazing braking and control. In emergency brake situations this technology takes the limelight and stops you quickly, safely and in all conditions. Everybody wants their children to be as safe as possible, in any vehicle and that’s why Ford have now made ISOFIX child seat attachments available as standard. This includes tether anchorage, which drastically reduces the chance of a head injury in an accident. Another addition to the security of the Ford Ranger is the Passive Anti-Theft System which renders the engine immobile until your individually coded key is used to start the engine. Therefore, your Ranger can’t be stolen, even if a thief gets in to your truck. There is a Thatcham Category 1 alarm system which is now set as standard in the Ranger allowing the vehicle to set off an alarm sound when it detects forced entry or when the sensors pick up any movement inside the cab. Even if a thief thinks they are being clever and disconnects the vehicle battery, a backup alarm system will activate and sound when the alarm is set off because it has its own battery!
