Up to 800mm water wading4

It’s not only on dry land that Ranger proves that it can take you just about anywhere you need to go. A river-taming 800mm makes sure there’s very little that can come between you and getting the job done.

Tyre Pressure Monitor5

When your tyre pressure isn’t right it can compromise safety and fuel economy. The Tyre Pressure Monitor constantly monitors each tyre’s pressure and lets you know which ones need air, and when. Easy.

The Ranger holds on tight

Take back control on steep inclines and sandy and other loose surfaces with e-Locking Rear Differential2. Locking the rear wheels helps you gain the best possible control over challenging and uneven terrains where it can be difficult to keep both rear wheels on the ground.
