We are pleased to announce that the Ford Ranger is already raking up awards in the early months of 2017. It only confirms what we already knew to be true – the Ford Ranger is the best bakkie you can buy. Apart from this, other Ford vehicles have also made a splash, performing well in many categories in competitions so far.
The 2016/17 Cars.co.za Consumer Awards were announced in January and the Ford Ranger 3.2 Wildtrak 4×4 Auto drove off with the award for the Leisure Double Cab of the Year! Every year, Cars.co.za and WesBank announce the top 13 vehicles they believe are the best new purchases in various categories. Other Fords that did well this year were the Ford Everest 3.2 4WD Limited, runner up in the Lifestyle SUV of the Year, and the Ford Focus RS in the Performance Car of the Year.
In February, Car Magazine revealed their Top 12 Best Buys for 2017 and for the 6th year in a row, the Ford Ranger was named the winner among Double-cab Bakkies. Again, other Fords made an appearance in various categories, including the Ford Fiesta in the Light Hatchback category, the Ford Focus in the Compact Sedan category and the Ford Everest in the Large SUV/Crossover category. Accolades also included the Ford Everest being named the Best Value Large SUV and the Ford Fiesta ST being named the Best Light Hot Hatch.
It comes as no surprise to us that Ford did so well in these and many other competitions.
