‘Built tough’ and built for heavy lifting
With a payload of up to 1 135kg and a towing capability of up to 3500kg (that’s 3 ½ tonnes!), the Ford Ranger’s multipurpose versatility is unsurpassed. It’s no wonder that preloved Ford Rangers are so popular to get any job done.
‘Built tough’ and built to go the distance
South Africa’s diverse terrains demand resilience and a rugged vehicle to match. Built to conquer the untamed beauty of our country, new and preloved Ford Rangers continue to stand tall, showcasing their durability and proving that when it comes to odometer readings, age is just a number.
‘Built tough’ and built to be economical
In the past, bakkies haven’t been the most economical vehicles, but thanks to a modern turbodiesel engine and a 10-speed automatic transmission gearbox, the Ford Ranger ticks this box. With an average fuel consumption of 6.8 litres/100km, it beats its Toyota, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Mahindra rivals. This makes a preloved Ford Ranger a savvy financial choice for second-hand bakkie buyers.
‘Built tough’ and built to serve
As an automotive brand that has been manufacturing bakkies and cars in South Africa since 1923, Ford’s reputation, as a customer-centric brand with an excellent after-sales service offering, makes investing in a second-hand Ranger a really smart choice.
‘Built tough’ and ready to go at Weelee

Whether you’re driving city streets, exploring the bushveld, navigating mountain passes, or cruising along the coastline, the Ranger effortlessly adapts to any journey and adventure.
