Ford scoops pick-up award from Auto Express

The UK’s top selling pick-up, the Ford Ranger, has received an award in the Auto Express New Car Awards 2019.

Ford Ranger - Pick-up of the year

In naming its 2019 Pick-up of the Year, the magazine and online auto experts cited the Ford Ranger’s new 2.0-litre diesel powertrain’s combination of economy and pulling power. For the high-performance Ranger Raptor, torque output at 500Nm is almost the same as the V8 Mustang’s 529Nm.

Steve Fowler, Auto Express editor-in-chief, said: “We’ve long been fans of the Ford Ranger, but a recent round of updates has propelled it to the top of the class. Its new range of 2.0-litre diesel engines is more efficient, yet they also boost power and pulling performance.

“Its interior has a genuine Sport Utility Vehicle feel, and the Raptor is a proper halo model that’ll please both the pick-up faithful and those new to the market.
