Ford Sub-Sahara Africa Unveils 2019 Ranger
Ford sub-Sahara Africa unveiled the 2019 Ranger to select African media, where Cheki Kenya was well represented.
The revised pick up has a number of changes that enhances its capabilities, comfort and safety. The biggest change comes with the introduction of the new 157Kw/500Nm 2.0 Litre twin turbo diesel engine.
This will eventually replace the ageing 3.2 litre 5-Cylinder turbo diesel engine that’s found on the Wild Trak and XLT versions. Paired to it will be a 10-speed automatic gearbox that ensures the exploitation of the new engine while returning good fuel economy to the driver.
Safety wise, the new Ranger now comes with cross traffic alert and autonomous emergency braking. To enhance the safety systems that are still in play in the current model. The car will be in stock in the second quarter of 2019.
