Ford has been chosen by the UK Ministry of Defence to supply over 100 Ranger pick-up vehicles, to be used by the Army, Navy, Air Force and the Ministry.

Ford_Ranger_1Ford’s rugged off-roader, winner of the International Pick-Up Award for 2013, will see service in a variety of roles, carrying personnel, MoD civilians and their equipment around Britain.

Ford_Ranger_2The 104 Ranger XL models will be supplied with four-wheel-drive and in a variety of cab configurations. Each vehicle will have an operational life of between five and seven years.

Ford_Ranger_3Steve O’Leary, MoD Programme Manager, said: “These Ford Rangers are all vital administrative vehicles. Some will be used by service security patrols guarding military establishments, and others will be converted for mountain rescue. The Ranger was selected as it is more than able to fulfil the required role in terms of off-road mobility and payload, and also for the value for money it offers.”
