2018 Ford Ranger FX4 Price and Reviews-Not all that long prior, drifting the possibility of a Ford Ranger being a superior purchase than a Toyota Hilux would have had you skittled off a development venture speedier than turning up without the privilege defensive footwear. Nowadays the Ford’s prevalence is a broadly acknowledged reality. The Ranger is Ford’s top of the line vehicle in Australia and all things considered. Passage tuned in to what ute purchasers needed and evaluated the Ranger sensibly.
The thing is, sensible valuing doesn’t generally liken to enormous edges. So Ford has endeavored to prod away a little at what the market will bear. The outcomes have not baffled. Very nearly 66% of Ranger deals have been the best end XLT and Wildtrak variations. It appears that Aussies can’t get enough of deceived up pick-ups. With that in mind, Ford has added another model to consider, the FX4 unique version.
The Ford Ranger FX4 expands on the XLT with a dark optics pack, some 18-inch ‘Obvious Gray’ combinations, dark rooftop rails and cowhide complemented seats, monogrammed with the FX4 identification. That little parcel tots up to an extra $3420 (AUD), to which our test auto included $550 worth of Magnetic Gray paint.
The motor’s a natural one to Ranger purchasers: a five-barrel 3.2-liter diesel that drives every one of the four wheels through either a six-speed manual or (as tried) a six-speed programmed transmission.

The incentive isn’t precisely straightforward for the FX4. Should you favor the discretionary $800 Tech Pack (including Forward Collision Alert, Lane Keeping Aid, Automatic High Beam Control and Adaptive Cruise Control), the FX4’s last receipt will be more than the apparently run topping Wildtrak which includes the Tech Pack incorporations as standard. Furthermore, you’ll likewise be passing up a major opportunity for the Wildtrak’s warmed seats, puddle lights and roller tonneau for the plate.The controlling can feel unnervingly light on occasion for such a macho-looking vehicle. It’s precise however it’s neither clever nor especially liberal with input.
Some other CARS I SHOULD CONSIDER
In case you’re in the market for a top of the line ute, Volkswagen’s Amarok is a key contender, in spite of the fact that Mercedes-Benz’s X-Class looks an interesting participant. The Holden Colorado in Z71 pretense has the bling to contend with the R
