The Science of Truck:
24hr Endurance
 

The endurance and comfort of the Ford Ranger is put to the ultimate test in this video of Science of Truck. The engineers at Ford took the Ranger through a series of tests over 24hrs straight, pushing it to it’s limitsRanger-sot-towing-6.

Throughout the Science of Truck series we take testing to new levels with the Ford Ranger. In this video we test the extraordinary endurance in a series of tests over 24hrs in the extreme jungle conditions of Thailand.

Engine Heat Management

 

The Ford Ranger's 3.2 duratorq diesel engineEngine Heat Management can produce some serious heat when pushed to its limits therefore it requires intelligent cooling systems. Not only does the Ranger's front grille look sharp it has been carefully engineered to ensure great airflow is achieved.

The Ranger also sports an exceptional cooling pack where a mechanically driven fan provides significant airflow to all three heat exchanges in the intercooler, condenser and radiator. Another unique feature is the remote transmission oil cooler. Not only does it maintain optimum oil temperature, it is also great for fuel economy.

Gross Combined Mass

 

In addition, the ultra high strength steel chassis, and superior suspension design deliver a stronger smoother ride.

The Ranger’s payload and towing capacity with Trailer Sway Control lets you handle big loads with greater confidence and allows the Ranger to drag a gross combined mass (GCM) of up to 6 tonnesRanger-sot-towing-5 with ease through harsh conditions. While the ultra-high-strength steel chassis and superior suspension design deliver a stronger, smoother ride.
