After 34 years of the Toyota Hilux being the commercial vehicle leader in South Africa they have to step down from their title. It was recently reported by Wheels24 in November 2014, that the Ford Ranger has taken the lead, knocking the Hilux of its throne!
According to The National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa (Naamsa), the Ford Ranger sold 3054 units in the light commercial vehicle class, thus making it the best selling vehicle in its category.
Mark Kaufman, the vice-president of Ford SA, was thrilled with the Ranger’s new title and was immensely pleased that there was still great support in the Ford Ranger, especially those that were locally produced.
Kaufman also commented that it was a great achievement for the Ford Ranger to be the country’s top selling pick-up for the first time and it was pleasing to see that Ford topped 3000 unit sales for their second consecutive month.
