For a no-nonsense pick-up truck with serious power, you wouldn’t be going wrong with the Ford Ranger. You don’t expect a pick-up to provide a comfortable drive but the electric power steering and the control of the Ranger is impressive for such a large vehicle. This truck can be used for business but he can also fulfill the needs of those with an adventurous lifestyle.
The Ford Ranger is a powerful vehicle which specialises in the shifting and towing of heavy loads. No matter what kind of load you’re carrying, the Ranger can more than likely move it. With a payload of just over a tonne and towing capability of roughly 3500kg, this pick-up is ready to take on the toughest of tasks.
Pick-up trucks aren’t renowned for their passenger-carrying as their prime use is for cargo. But, the Ford Ranger comes in three sizes; the Regular Cab, the Super Cab or the Double Cab.
The Regular Cab is for those who want a Ford Ranger specifically for work purposes. Only available in the no-frills XL spec, it has the biggest carrying capabilities but only has seating for a driver and single passenger.
With the Super Cab and Double Cab shapes, you can carry passengers. The Double has seating for up to 5 people wheras the Super Cab has two foldable seats in the rear. But, this area tends to be used for storage and only sporadically for passengers regularly.

Best Ways Of Van Finance
At Swiss we have literally most funders on the market and will introduce you to the best value. Our aim is to help you grow your fleet
and become your natural choice to replace vehicles.
– Van Hire purchase – VAT down and VAT deferred . HP is a great way to actually buy a van. If your VAT registered claim the whole VAT amount back within three months.
– Van Leasing
Small deposits from one payment in advance to 50% of the van price. Its 100% tax deductible so great fir new start companies that have start up costs. Is the favourite way for many manufacturers so often attracts the greatest discounts. Its more flexible than contract hire.
– Lease Purchase
Not all manufactures support this method so often pre registered vans are the way to go. This is because you take ownerships automatically and they worry it will affect residual values. Ask us first as often you cant get a private plate on this method. Its very much like HP but more suited to VAT registered companies as they can claim the VAT back of course. If you are flat rate VAT this is the one for you.
– Van Contract Hire
Great for larger fleets that want to control costs but its seldom sold to smaller users as its quite restrictive. Many ask for it because they have asked for it in the past. Some mistakenly think there is no credit check check but there is.
