Because of New Zealand's natural landscape, rich farm life and outdoor lifestyle, the ideal vehicle in the country is a pickup truck. With various activities and adventures this place has to offer, the mighty truck definitely serves the purpose.

In November, we flew to the island country to experience what the Ford Ranger is designed to do--tackle unforgiving terrain--complete with scenic backdrops! We also took part in typical farming duties, such as sheep herding, as well as enjoying recreational activities like fishing and camping. We definitely put the Ranger to good use each time.

The video above captures our adventures over two days. It's certainly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
