There’s no better test for an off-road vehicle like real world conditions. For the past few months, a team of Ford engineers have been putting the Ranger through a series of gruelling tests- the kind that you would find in proper use of these vehicles, only taken to their most extreme.
Their tests took them across Thailand, from a construction site in Bangkok all the way to the northern border. It's definitely a new way to showcase how well a workhorse will handle the demands placed on pickup trucks.
The Ranger was subjected to a number of different challenges: it had to take the abuse of heavy pallets of cargo dropped onto its cargo bed, tow massive loads through a limestone quarry, plunge into a wading pool in a 4x4 testing facility, and even endure a 6.5-kilometre jungle track for 24 consecutive hours.
