Ford Ranger: Superior Off Road Performance

The Ford Ranger is one of the most popular utes in Australia, that's why we've included the Ford Ranger in our hire fleet at Vista Hire. The Ford Ranger has performed well in recent comparison test against its rivals and comes with a 5-Star ANCAP safety rating.

Capable on and off road and ready to tow

Featuring the reliable and powerful 3.2 litre diesel engine, the Ranger is a good performer both on and off road. An 800mm water wading depth gives it superior off-road performance.

The Ranger is a popular tow vehicle given its 3,500kg towing capacity, but also because of trailer sway assist which automatically adjusts the behaviour of the tow vehicle. This makes towing safer especially in cross-wind conditions.

Driver Aids and comforts

The Ford Ranger is equipped with the latest driver aids such as ABS, traction and dynamic stability control, and multiple airbags. Drivers can enjoy enhanced connectivity through Bluetooth, USB, MP3 and aux input all with steering wheel mounted controls. 

The Ford Ranger offers class-leading leg room, making this dual-cab comfortable when carrying up to five passengers.


Our Ford Rangers are equipped with additional safety features built in for when our clients are towing trailers. As part of the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) the vehicle also contains a feature called Trailer Stability Control (TSC).

Trailer Stability Control automatically detects when an attached trailer starts to sway. If this situation occurs, the TSC automatically brakes individual wheels to stabilise the vehicle and trailer. In cases where the sway is severe, the engine torque is also reduced and the vehicle slowed automatically.

Available with Mine Spec Options

The Dual Cab Ford Ranger is available for hire with mine specification accessories and equipment, including In-Vehicle Monitoring System (IVMS), UHF Radio, Roll Over Protection Structures (ROPS), all-terrain tyres and more...
