The long wait is over. After announcing at the 2012 Manila International Auto Show that the all-new Ranger will officially go on sale by July, Ford Group Philippines has just revealed that the Philippine-market units are already here.
"We are thrilled to start deliveries of our class-defining all-new Ranger and invite our customers to test-drive the Ranger at their nearest Ford dealership," said Dino Obias, FGP's assistant vice president for marketing.
The Ranger is available in three variants: the 2.2-liter XLT 4x2 with a six-speed manual transmission at P1.069 million, its six-speed automatic-gearbox counterpart at P1.119 million, and the 2.2-liter XL 4x4 at P1.179 million.
Over 400 orders have reportedly been placed for the Ranger, so just in case you're wondering if the order you placed isn't here yet, don't worry as we've been told there are more batches of this highly-anticipated pickup†coming this month.
The Ranger's arrival couldn't have been timed more perfectly, as the rainy season has cause Metro Manila roads to flood lately. This pickup has a†water-fording capability of up to 800mm†even when fully laden.
