The current generation of the Ford Ranger is the most versatile, capable Ranger ever according to Ford, and now, it can officially add “Best 4x4 and Pick-up” to its title according to the Women’s World Car of the Year judges.

The Women’s World Car of the Year is voted for by a jury composed of 63 women motoring journalist from 45 countries in five continents. These 63 journalists make up the automotive industry’s only all-female jury.

Vehicles across six categories undergo intense scrutiny during the judging process. These vehicles are assessed for safety, driving, comfort, technology, design, efficiency, impact on the environment, and value for money. The jury was sufficiently impressed with the Ranger’s performance and scope of abilities stating: “This is a reliable, stylish, and charismatic pick-up. It moves with ease over any terrain. It’s as efficient as an off roader, but more practical thanks to its cargo box.”

“Having worked on the new Ranger right from the beginning, I know how much customer feedback was poured into the truck to ensure it was fit for work, family, and play. And, as a mother, I can fully appreciate the truck’s practicality and versatility. Thank you to the Women’s World Car of the Year jury for this award, which recognizes Ranger’s global appeal and ultimate capability.”
