The interior of the Ford Ranger has a contemporary appearance, with high quality leather seats, steering wheel and gearshift. The Ford Ranger performs well off road on a variety of terrains. The Ranger has been tested in a number of harsh environments and the limits have been tested in the worlds hardest locations; including the heat, sand and dust in the Sahara Desert and the extreme cold at altitude in the Himalayas. Speeds of up to 62mph can be reached in as little as 12.4 seconds. The Ford Ranger can have a load of up to one tonne and safely tow a load of three tonnes.
