The Americans at Ford get a new occassion of celebration thanks to the third international award won in 2012.
After winning the “International Engine of the Year” with the new 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine and also claiming the prize of the “International Van of the Year” with the new Transit Custom, Ford manages to obtain yet another award.
We talk about the “International Pick-Up Award”, claimed this year by the well-known Ford Ranger. The American model is offered in three body styles, namely Double, Super and Regular, benefits from two Duratorq diesel engines and can be ordered in a 4×2 or 4×4 configuration.
“The Ford Ranger is a great all-rounder, combining the perfect blend of on-road comfort and stability with off-road capability,” said Jarlath Sweeney, one of the judges.
The new Ranger obtained a total score of 47 points after several tests in England, at the Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire. The following two places were occupied by Isuzu D-Max and Volkswagen Amarok.
