The Ford Ranger has had a successful time of late - in 2019, 52,500 units were sold across Europe before scooping the 2020 International Pick-Up of the Year Award. We are now in anticipation of the arrival of a new model to the series line-up - the Ford Ranger Thunder. It is based on the top of the range Wildtrak but make no mistake, the Ranger Thunder has a unique character of its own. That shows, thanks in no small part to the distinctive styling throughout.
As pictured, it is finished in stunning Sea Grey metallic paint, complete with bold red exterior "accents", 18" alloy wheels and Thunder 3D badges. Combine that with the distinguished interior with full Ebony Leather seats complete with red embroidery and stitching. Even the loadspace is unique with its bedliner, Black Mountain Top powder-coated roller shutter and, new on Thunder edition, a hugely practical load divider.
But it's not all about the looks! The New Ranger Thunder boasts effortless performance both on and off-road. It has a powerful Bi-turbo 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine with a 10 speed automatic transmission that adapts to changing conditions. So you'll always be in the optimal gear ensuring faultless performance and excellent fuel efficiency alike.

To summarise, the New Ranger Thunder is a vehicle which delivers all of the load carrying and towing capability you'd expect from a pick-up along with the comfort and refinement of an SUV.

It will be arriving in our showrooms soon but if you'd like to find out more in advance, our Transit Centre Specialists would be delighted to help. We can arrange to pre-book a test drive so that you can get behind the wheel of this stunning new vehicle just as soon as it is possible.
