For many businesses, a pickup truck is an essential part of the fleet. Whether it is used by management for site visits, or to transport crew and equipment, if you expect to encounter rough terrain then you should be looking at leasing a pickup truck.
Even if your business is strictly on-road, a smart pickup truck can add a little prestige to your brand.
Modern pickups have a range of luxury options and are designed to handle well on or off the road.
So which pickup truck should you choose? Here’s a brief introduction to each manufacturer and some of the different options they provide.
The Ford Ranger is possibly the best-known pickup truck brand in the UK. As with their vans, Ford supply the Ranger in an impressive number of variants. Even the lowest spec is a quality vehicle, but the higher end pickup trucks come with a host of features that really make Ford stand out.
The Ranger XLT model is the lowest spec, though it is by no means lacking. All Rangers come with a solid basic feature set that includes cruise control, lane keeping assistance, traffic sign recognition and a trip computer. The 4WD system is smooth and switches modes effortlessly.
The next variant is the Ford Ranger Limited. It includes all the features on the XLT, plus a host of additional attributes that more than justify the extra cost. Heated leather seats, dual-zone climate control, parking sensors and much more combine to make the Ford Ranger Limited a very good pickup truck.
Ford’s flagship Ranger is the Wildtrak, with 18” wheels, a new grille, and additional trim to set it apart from the cheaper versions. The Wildtrak is available in both manual and automatic versions, with a choice of 2.0 or 3.2 litre engines.
All versions of the Ford Ranger can carry over 1,000kg of cargo in the rear bed, and additional options allow for the ability to add a hard top for security.
Depending on your budget and requirements, we can likely source a Ford Ranger that would suit you. The XLT is ideal for customers who need a 4×4 pickup truck but don’t need the extra bells and whistles, while the Wildtrak is for customers that want that extra comfort and style. No matter the version, however, the Ford Ranger is a great pickup truck and is more than worth its price tag.
