Taking the pick-up world by storm, the all-new Ford Ranger Thunder is a truck with immense capability and unique style. Matching the Wildtrak for utility, it has a maximum payload of over a tonne, while a host of exclusive features ensures it turns heads.
Built to be noticed, the Ford Ranger Thunder is a strong, sturdy pick-up with an imposing stance and undeniable presence. The black mesh front grille is flanked by square headlights, and the high bonnet sweeps up to a raked windscreen that not only enables clear visibility, but also floods the cabin with natural light. Red accents on the grille and unique 18-inch alloy wheels are exclusive to the model, and the Sea Grey paint colour ensures these design elements – along with the 3D Thunder badging – stand out.
Inside, you’ll find a smart, sophisticated cabin that puts you firmly in control. The raised driving position means you get the best possible view of the road, while the clean design and premium materials give a sense of quality and refinement. The red detailing is present here too – red stitching contrasts with the black upholstery, and the Thunder emblem is emblazoned on the seats. Behind the wheel, you’ll discover an intuitive cockpit that displays all the driving data you need at a glance, and ergonomic controls that mean you can change your music or make a call without taking your eyes off the road.
The Ford Ranger Thunder is powered by a 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine that produces 213PS and maximum torque of 500Nm. All this force is controlled via 10-speed automatic transmission, which delivers smooth, seamless gear changes in a way that optimises fuel economy, and with four-wheel drive as standard, you can tackle any environment with confidence. You can even head into water – a wading depth of 800mm means the Ranger Thunder ventures boldly where lesser vehicles can’t. Add to this driver assistance features such as cruise control and Lane-Keeping System, and you’ll enjoy an effortless, agile drive wherever the journey takes you.
When you spend a lot of time on the road, you need to know you’ll stay both connected and safe. With its raft of advanced technologies, the Ranger Thunder delivers. The Ford SYNC 3 system provides intuitive audio, communication, navigation and more, while FordPass Connect supplies WiFi for up to 10 devices and sends live traffic updates straight to the on-board navigation.
Keeping you safe, meanwhile, are features such as Electronic Stability Control, Emergency Brake Assist and Hill Descent Control for those tricky inclines.
