AEB now on every Ford Ranger but at a price

More cost but extra safety and spec improvements mark the MY19.75 Ranger range

28 Mar 2019


FORD has bumped up the prices of its popular Ranger series but has also added extra equipment to compensate on some variants, including the belated inclusion of autonomous emergency braking (AEB) driver-assist technology on every model including the Raptor flagship.
On sale from June, most models now cost between $250 and $650 more than before depending on the variant, with the perennial-favourite Wildtrak copping an $800 rise, while the Raptor jumps $600 to $75,990 plus on-road costs – its second price hike in less than nine months.
Previously only included on the Wildtrak since last July’s facelift, the standardisation of AEB across the board also brings pedestrian detection, lane keep assist with driver alert, traffic-sign recognition and auto high beam headlight tech, meaning that all Rangers score a five-star ANCAP rating.  
Additionally, the base XL and mid-level XLS are now fitted with a noise-reducing ‘acoustic’ windscreen, matching the latest XLT, Wildtrak and Raptor, while the bottom-of-the-range XL Cab-Chassis can now be fitted with an integrated rear-view camera at extra cost (the pick-ups already come with a camera and rear parking sensors), while the Raptor now has power-adjustability for its specially-bolstered front seats to help justify that extra $600 charge. 
Furthermore, the MY19.75 Ranger joins other Blue Oval-badged vehicles in qualifying for the ‘Ford Service Benefits’ program offering a $299 service “price cap” for the first four years or 60,000km of the five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty that the brand now operates under.
Finally, Ford has halved the price of its bundled adaptive cruise control and automatic parking assist systems from $1700 to $800, and leather upholstery is now $150 cheaper at $1500 where applicable.
The move to AEB across the Ranger line-up is a big step in the right direction for one-tonne trucks, according to ANCAP chief executive James Goodwin.
“The standard inclusion of AEB on the Ford Ranger and Ranger Raptor is great news for ute buyers and other road users,” he said. 
“As one of Australia’s top sellers, having this important safety technology fitted across the Ranger line-up will have a big impact.”
