Posted on July 1, 2024Comments Off on 2024 Ford Ranger Black Edition brings more kit for less money

The Ford Ranger Black Edition has joined the best-selling ute’s already wide lineup, bringing greater value to buyers of the entry-level dual-cab.

Based on the Ford Ranger XL 4×4 dual-cab bi-turbo ute, the Black Edition is limited to just 1500 examples, with Australian deliveries due to start between now and the end of September 2024.

Priced from $56,680 before on-road costs, its list price is $2300 dearer than the grade upon which it’s based.

However, it wears a nationwide drive-away price of $57,990 drive-away when finished in the no-cost Arctic White paint, making it between $1851 and $4292 cheaper than its XL counterpart.

It’s powered by a 2.0-litre bi-turbo four-cylinder diesel engine which produces 154kW of power and 500Nm of torque, mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and part-time four-wheel drive system.

All Ford Ranger variants boast a braked towing capacity of 3500kg.
