Ford Ranger Wins Best Pick-Up of the Year 2021
The Ford Ranger wins Best Pick-Up Truck of the Year at the 2021 WhatCar? Car of the Year awards.
Feb 03, 2021
The Ford Ranger is as iconic as it gets when it comes to pick-up trucks and it's no surprise it's gone on to win 2021's WhatCar? Pick-up of the Year award.
A couple of years ago we compared the Mitsubishi L200 against the 2019 New Ford Ranger where the Ranger came out on top for being "cheaper, faster, more responsive, [having] a better fuel economy and a better infotainment system."
Whether you’re travelling end-to-end on a motorway or plummeting through forest dirt tracks, the Ford Ranger handles brilliantly in even the harshest of terrain thanks to a remarkable ground clearance of up to 237mm.
As a commercial vehicle, the Ford Ranger is the only pick-up truck on the UK’s best-selling list, stationed at number 5 for December 2020 and number 6 for the overall year.
It is a highly versatile vehicle that offers modern-day comforts and luxury conveniences whilst being an office on-the-move to so many.
The Ford Ranger has always been more than just a workhorse and today the Ford Ranger Double Cab 2.0 EcoBlue 213 Wildtrak Auto proves that.
In fact, one of the reasons it won Best Pick-up of the Year was due to the "full-size rear doors and spacious three-seat rear bench of the double-cab version" enabling it to double as a great family car so well. Plus its comfortable and tech-packed interior makes it smart and efficient as well as fun and entertaining.
The New Ford Ranger pickup truck is optimised with a 240-volt power socket to fulfil your leisure or business needs on-the-go. Keep the kids entertained with a full battery on their phone or tablet or plug-in professional power tools when it's time to get to work.
The same point can be made when talking about its competitive payload and towing capacity. The Ford Ranger can carry up to 1024kg in the rear load bed and has the capacity to tow up to 3500kg. So whether you're transporting euro pellets to a worksite or strapping in your mountain bikes for a weekend away with friends and family, the Ford Ranger has "all the functionality and hard-working nature that define a great pick-up".
