The Science of Truck: Deep Water
 

In this video we test the water wading capability of the Ford Ranger. The engineers at Ford took the Ranger through a series of tests in up to 800mm of water, pushing it to it’s limitsRanger-sot-towing-6.

We take our testing to new levels with the Ford Ranger throughout the Science of Truck Series. In this video we test the extraordinary water wading capacity in up to 800mm of water. Our engineers then leave the Ranger in 800m of water to see how durable and water tight the truck is.

Hill Descent Control (4x4
models only)

 

HDCHill Descent Control assists the driver to negotiate steep descents by allowing the driver to set and maintain a vehicle speed while descending steep grades on various surface conditions.

The driver does not need to depress either the accelerator or brake pedal to regulate the speed, but can use the cruise control buttons on the steering wheel to change the vehicle speed.
