New Ford Ranger 2021 detailed: 4×4 XLT Double Cab Chassis expands Toyota HiLux-rivalling line-up to 33 variants
Ford Australia has added a new body style to its popular Ranger line-up with the 4×4 XLT Double Cab Chassis now joining the range as a no-frills workhorse with space for five passengers.
The XLT Double Cab Chassis can also be had with the Raptor’s 2.0-litre bi-turbo engine and 10-speed automatic transmission for $59,940.
Each XLT Double Cab Chassis is positioned $1000 less than the equivalent pick-ups.
Mirroring the XLT in specification, the new Ranger grades include autonomous emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection, and Ford’s Apple CarPlay/Android Auto-compatible 8.0-inch Sync3 multimedia touchscreen system as standard.
Dual-zone climate control, 17-inch wheels, digital radio, satellite navigation, and tow-bar tongue and wiring are also included at no extra cost.
Buyers wanting a little more equipment can opt for adaptive cruise control ($500), leather-accented seats ($1500), 18-inch black wheels ($750) and prestige paint ($650), which includes the new pearlescent Alabaster White exterior colour.
Like all Rangers equipped with the 3.2-litre turbo-diesel five-cylinder engine, the XLT Double Cab Chassis outputs 147kW/470Nm.
Opting for the 2.0-litre twin-turbo-diesel option ups the ante to 157kW/500Nm.
All XLT Double Cab Chassis grades send drive to all four wheels, and feature a selectable four-wheel-drive system.
The three new XLT Double Cab Chassis grades take the number of available Ranger variants in Australia to 33 – split between 4×2 and 4×4 versions seven to 26.
Like all new Ford Australia vehicles, the XLT Double Cab Chassis comes with a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty.
