BRENTWOOD, England – The Ranger has been named Pick-Up of the Year 2013 by 4x4 Magazine. The vehicle has now won a record-breaking seven awards in 12 months.
The Ranger emerged victorious from a group of seven vehicles reviewed by the magazine.
Nigel Fryatt, 4x4 Magazine editor, said: "Ford's new Ranger has significantly raised the bar in the pick-up market. Our extensive test showed the variety of products that are now on the UK market, and the Ranger topped them all with better overall ability, superb ride quality and an interior that makes it hard to believe this is a commercial vehicle. Indeed, no other pick-up came close in terms of interior comfort and specification."
The UK pick-up market has grown by more than 25% since 2009, with eight models currently competing in the segment.
