The Ford Ranger has won a second prestigious award in the form of the ‘International Pick-up Award 2013′. Selected by every judge on the voting panel as their first choice in the pick-up market, the Ranger managed to obtain forty-seven points, more than double that of the second and third placed vans; the Isuzu D-Max and the Volkswagen Amarok.
The judges were particularly impressed with the Ranger’s on and off-road performance, its strong engine line-up, its payload and towing abilities and its safety levels. Paul Randle from Ford of Europe said;
‘The Ranger is great for work and great for leisure, and customers will appreciate the difference as soon as they get behind the wheel. This prestigious award is testament to the work of our global product teams and there is plenty more to look forward to with the launch of the all-new Transit and all-new Transit Connect in 2013.’
