THE FORD Ranger once again sits atop the 4x4 sales charts, with 3769 new units leaving the showroom floor in September.

In further good news for the Blue Oval, the Ford Ranger was the overall monthly best-selling vehicle with 4318 (4x4 and 4x2) rigs sold – a 43.7 per cent increase compared to September 2016.

With 4x2 variants added to the mix Ford has sold 32,620 Rangers so far in 2017, which is an increase of 21 per cent over the same period last year.

“With its locally led design and engineering, we’re immensely proud that Australian customers’ feedback has allowed us to deliver a line-up of Ranger models that not only offer class-leading towing and strong payload capabilities, but also offer the safety and comfort to make them extremely liveable everyday vehicles,” said Greg Davidson, Sales Director of Ford Australia.

The Toyota Hilux 4x4 ended the month with 2907 sales, while Mitsubishi’s Triton secured third spot on the podium with 1532 sales.
