The multi-award winning Ford Ranger pickup truck is getting an update in Europe. Ford in Europe says the new 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine in the Ford Ranger features “selective catalytic reduction” for optimised emissions, delivering up to a nine percent fuel-efficiency improvement when mated to the new 10-speed automatic transmission.
As we already knew, the Ranger engine line-up will be led by the bi-turbo version borrowed from the Raptor, delivering 157 kW and 500 Nm. In addition, however, a single variable-geometry turbocharged version churning out 125 kW and 420 Nm will be offered in Europe, along with a base engine of the same configuration, offering 96 kW and 340 Nm of torque.
Ford says the compact single turbocharger has been specifically designed to deliver more air at lower engine revolutions compared with the 2.2-litre TDCi unit (which, along with the 3.2-litre five-cylinder, falls away in that market).
Meanwhile, in Malaysia, Sime Darby Auto ConneXion (SDAC) the brand guardian for Ford recently announced the ‘Ford Ranger Weekend Sales Carnival’ for Peninsular Malaysia which runs this August until October 2019.
Customers who place a booking for any Ford Ranger variant during the carnival period will be in the running to win an athletic bicycle to complement their active or adventurous Ranger lifestyle.
