Last week one of these 2.2 2012 ford, came by the heliport in couva
Geez,,,that thing have pace.....He challenged a 2012 Hilux and Navarra(Licensed TCW LE) for a run......It sped off like a bullet and left them way behind,,,,,,,,,,
I wonder whats the 0-100kmph? any one know? It hadda be a seriously low time..cause everyone was shocked...
I saw another 2.2 one on the highway ,, i sure more that 200kmph...cause I was in my bro Navarra doing 185kmph around 2am heading south.,,and it make we felt as if we park up.....Are these safe for the road with all this speed.........they built for racing........

I wondering now the 3.2 must be a monster?


Any one knows the top speed of the 2.2 and 3.2?

No vehicle is safe at high speeds. you really have to be a madman to be driving a pickup at 200kph.

Any slight problem in the road and you and your van will lose control...

It's a deathwish you must have to be driving at that speed.

pornstar- correct...I went and looked at them about a month ago...no locking diff....no hill ascent/descent....immediately turned off and walked away....

of course the sales rep in south- (some young boy look like he was being a salesman on saturdays as he apparently going to school during the week)... seemed to not understand much about the vehicle....

Im patiently awaiting southernsales and the bt50-cuz ssl re-defines "waterdown version"....

When I went to the stealership I didn't see the 3.2L version, dunno if that one comes with those features.

The 3.2l comes with all the features mention including voice controls, Bluetooth, reverse sensors not camera, that's feature is in the wildtrak. Also you get trailer sway control and sport tiptronic transmission

rule of thumb - once the MGW goes over 3000 - you need Heavy T

Nice review,good read. Well thought out and thorough testing, and the ranger holds up well to lost tests.

But the price.. Always the price, *sigh*

Agreed, I thought the review was particularly through ... And I agree on the price, it's a big turn off for a vehicle you supposed to be able to abuse and misuse.

Locally, I also have an issue paying top dollar for a less than fully featured (no rear locking rear diff) model.

I think my next vehicle might just be a nice used late model defender that I can abuse the snot out of and go "ha ha" afterwards ... We'll see ...
