New Ford Ranger clever storage and lighting solutions
February 10, 2022
Ford has revealed some of the more utilitarian details about the highly-anticipated new 2022 Ford Ranger.
Ahead of the all-new Australian-developed ute range’s local release by June, Ford says the next-generation ‘T6.2’ Ranger will go “all-out with a wider cargo box packed with features and opportunities to transform the space”.
With a body that’s 50mm wider than before, the new Ranger’s tub will accommodate a standard European pallet (1200x800mm), while the tray length runs from 1544mm to 2305mm depending on the variant, says Ford.
The zone lighting function is designed to appeal to recreational types by employing a combination of the headlights, puddle lamps, numberplate lamps and box lighting to illuminate a 360-degree area around the truck, or specific areas.
“It is perfect for safely inspecting the area around the vehicle at night,” says Ford.
Meantime, premium Wildtrak grades will be fitted with adjustable tie-down rails, offering up to nine different positions from which to secure cargo.
This is in addition to six separate tie-down points located in the bed and a powered roller shutter as seen on outgoing Wildtrak grades.
Ranger vehicles fitted with a factory tray will offer a neat rear access step located behind the back wheels, along with divider locaters allowing customers to section off areas of the tray.
