Features upgrade for Ford's Ranger

Comment on this story
IOL mot mar13 Ranger . Ford Ranger XLS models gain some user-friendly interior features.

Pretoria - While the locally-built Ford Ranger soldiers on as a strong contender in the bakkie market, Ford has sweetened the deal for 2014 by adding additional features on selected derivatives.

Nothing changes on the styling front, with the exception of Oyster Silver replacing Thunder as an exterior paint option.

On the inside, mid-range XLS models gain standard cruise control, Bluetooth with voice control and audio controls on the steering wheel.

On the safety front, ESP stability control - previously only available on range-topping Rangers - is now fitted as standard on the 2.2 XLS 4x4 double cab and two single cab versions: 2.2 XLS 4x4 and 3.2 XLS 4x4.

Furthermore, the central lap belt in the back of lower-spec double cab models has been replaced by a three-point seat belt, a change made possible by the fitting of a solid rear window in all Ranger models (in place of the sliding window).

There has been a minor spec deletion though in that all double cab models lose their under seat stowage bin lids, although the feature is still available as an accessory.
