Ford is investing in Australia like no other automaker with $2 billion in R&D over the past six years and even more to launch and upgrade a record number of products, including the Ranger 4x4 XLS Special Edition, on sale in September.
The Ranger 4x4 XLS Special Edition to arrive shortly as Ford closes the gap to Toyota with the Ranger 4x4 topping July 4x4 pick-up sales charts with a 21.2 per cent share of the segment
Ranger 4x4 now only 172 units behind the Hilux 4x4 year-to-date, representing an increase in sales of 37.5 per cent to July.
The Ranger 4x4 XLS Special Edition will bring even more visual attitude with the addition of a sports bar, tow bar, side steps, bed and tailgate liner and adds an additional $4,900^ worth of Ford Genuine Factory-Fitted Accessories for an exceptional recommended drive away price.
Ford is boosting one of the industry’s hottest models by launching the new Ranger 4x4 XLS Special Edition in September as the Ranger 4x4 already has seen sales rise nearly 40 per cent compared to the same time last year while taking more than 21 per cent of the 4x4 pick-up segment and again beating Hilux 4x4 in monthly sales during July.
The Ranger 4x4 XLS Special Edition offers unsurpassed 3500kg towing capacity^^, rear view camera and rear parking sensors and builds on the critical acclaim Ranger has recently enjoyed, with the Ford Ranger XLT awarded Drive Best Ute 2015, CarSales Best Tradie Vehicle 2015 and CarSales Best Offroad 4x4 2015.

Ranger was designed and engineered in Australia, and the addition of the Ranger 4x4 XLS Special Edition demonstrates how Ford’s commitment to local customers extends beyond the billions invested in local R&D as Ford Australia continues to deliver 20 new or updated vehicles by 2020.
