MY19 Ford Ranger XL Series
The Ranger XL is the affordable, dependent workhorse made even more capable thanks to its targeted upgrades that focus on usability, livability and capability. XL benefits from the introduction of an easy-lift tailgate on all pick-up models. With a new internal mechanism, the XL’s tailgate is now lighter to lift, with a 70-per cent reduction in initial force required to raise it for closing. Not only does this mechanism require less effort to lift, it also means that it’s easier to lower.
Ranger’s suspension has also been upgraded across the range to reduce and better control roll, with an emphasis on improving the driving experience when fully-laden and towing.
Offered in single-, super- and double-cab body styles, Ranger XL brings the flexibility and toughness of Ranger’s ladder-frame chassis and Australian-led engineering and design in both 4x2 and 4x4 powertrains.
