Ford Ranger diesel engine

More powerful, more economical diesel engines

The 2.2L TDCi Duratorq diesel engine has proved its performance, strength and dependability in the field and has now been enhanced, offering additional power and economy.

A 2.2L TDCi Duratorq 130PS and 330 Nm of torque is available only on the 4x2 Regular Cab XL.

The 2.2L TDCi Duratorq generates an impressive 160 PS and 385 Nm of torque. Available in 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions (Selected models only).

Need even more power? Then take the 3.2L TDCi Duratorq diesel option, with 200PS and 470 Nm of torque at your command.

Impressive fuel economy and low emissions are delivered from 43.5 mpg (6.5L/100m) and 171 g/km CO2 emissions (160PS 4x4 with 6-speed manual and 3.15 FDR).

The Ford Ranger offers a choice of axles for the manual 160PS 2.2 engine. This allows you to prioritise between fuel economy (3.15 Axle ratio) or towing capability (3.55 Axle ratio).

Manual or automatic transmission

There are two different transmissions. A 6-speed manual gearbox that delivers accurate gear-changes and a smooth 6-speed automatic with carefully tuned shifting points.

Use less fuel with Auto-Start-Stop

When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system). When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or press the accelerator on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto-Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10% (urban cycle).

Even more choice

Individual needs vary. So for the first time on Ranger you now have a choice of axle ratios for the 4x4 manual 160PS Duratorq TDCi 2.2L engine. This allows you to prioritise between fuel economy (optional ratio) and towing capability (standard ratio).

Ford Ranger AdBlue® Fluid

An additive that removes pollution

A selective catalytic reduction system uses AdBlue®, a urea/water-based fluid to convert NOx emissions in the exhaust gas into nitrogen and water. A particulate filter then reduces more than 99% of emitted solid particulates from the vehicle’s exhaust. To operate correctly, the AdBlue® tank of your Ford EcoBlue diesel engine must be filled with AdBlue® fluid. System warnings illuminate when fluid level becomes too low.
