fuel-efficient six-speed transmissions. Add in more chassis and safety
technologies, and the story of Ranger pickup truck leadership becomes as vivid

The flagship of the new range is the
Ford Ranger XLT Double Cab model unveiled in Sydney in lustrous Aurora Blue,

Taut, toned muscularity and a bold, confident stance instantly signal the
strength and capability of an ultra-modern pickup truck. Yet it also
communicates a transformed, more sophisticated and refined style that appeals to
a new generation of truck owners.
