Ford Australia is adding a new model to the Ranger ute line-up.

The new Ranger XLS is a feature-packed model aimed at private and small business customers. The new addition to the Ranger line-up has a Manufacturer’s List Price* of $48,090*.

This brings to 22 the number of Ranger combinations available for Ford ute buyers.

The new XLS is based on the 4x4 XL Double Cab Pick-Up 3.2-litre model and is matched with a six-speed manual transmission.

It has an enhanced exterior appearance and added interior comfort over the XL and bridges the gap between entry level and high grade XLT.

This new XLS comes equipped with locking rear differential, 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, carpeted floor coverings and additional exterior trim highlights.

The 4x4 XLS shares the following standard equipment with the 4x4 XL Double Cab utility 3.2L:
