The truck’s development also includes cold-weather testing of the engine and vehicle dynamics in North America. Conversely, hot-weather testing of these factors in the deserts of North America, Australia, and the Middle East at 50+ degrees Celsius (122+degF). The new Ranger has covered approximately 10,000 km (6,214 mi). Ford claims that this is equivalent to 1,250,000 km (776.714 mi) of normal driving or 625,000 km (388.357 mi) of “rugged-off-road durability testing” at the maximum pickup load capacity.
Ford conducts quality evaluations under simulated conditions at their proving ground in addition to real-world testing. The site tests and evaluates durability, high-speed performance, emissions, and other factors either physically or through computer simulations. Ford’s “squeak-and-rumble” rig is an example. It uses computer simulations and robotics, to constantly shake the truck at all hours of the day. This task would otherwise be too difficult for a human to handle.
John Willems is the Ford Ranger Chief Engineer. He stated that “Earning Built Ford Tough status does not come lightly.” “Every component of the next-generation Ranger was subject to the same testing standards as every Ford vehicle,” Willems stated that Ranger should be able to provide years of reliable service to its customers. We have gone to great lengths to put next-gen Ranger through extreme tests, stressing it more than most consumers to ensure that it is prepared to take on all the challenges life throws at her.
