Ranger keeps on winning

The Ford Ranger continues to be Kiwis’ favourite ute in 2015 after beating the competition handily and opening up the gap on the Toyota Hilux.

Provisional sales figures show the Ford Ranger was May’s top selling ute with 487 sold, leaving its nearest competitor, the Hilux, trailing behind by more than 100 vehicles in the year-to-date figures.

“We are of course heading into a very busy and highly competitive time for the ute market, with Fieldays coming up,” says Ford New Zealand managing director Corey Holter.

“So it’s great to see more people are choosing the best ute for their money – the Ford Ranger.”

The Ford Ranger is also New Zealand’s most awarded truck, winning numerous accolades every year since launching in New Zealand.

Trophies won to date include NZ4WD Magazine’s ‘4WD Utility of the Year 2014’ and ‘Overall 4WD of the Year 2014’, plus the AA’s and Motoring Writers’ Guild ‘Best in Class’ for 2012, 2013 and 2014.

Corey says Ford NZ is positioned to extend the success of the Ranger across its other vehicle lines with a record number of smart new vehicles being introduced this year.

“It’s also a busy year full stop for Ford New Zealand,” says Corey. “We’re also launching a record number of new vehicles in 2015, in almost every segment.

“Whether you’re looking for a new vehicle, just interested in new vehicles, or you’re the competition – Ford is the one to watch in 2015.”

In 2015 Ford NZ has introduced the New Ford Falcon XR8 and XR6, the New Ford Territory, All New Ford Mondeo, New Focus ST and Focus Wagon.

These will be followed by the rest of the New Focus range, the All New Ford Everest, the New Ranger, and the All New Mustang at the end of the year.
