2021 Ford Ranger XLT 4×4 :: Classifieds ( SOLD )

A Ford Ranger XLT 4x4

The Ford Ranger is another firm favorite for overlanding on our forum with recent examples including this 2006 with a Go Fast Camper, a 2020 with an Alu-Cab Khaya, and a 2019 with a Norweld tray and canopy. It’s one of the best-selling trucks in Australia and here in the UK Auto Express awarded it Pick-Up of the Year in 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022. Highlights include powerful yet relatively economical motors, excellent capability and build quality, and a 1,560-pound payload. If you’d like a better idea of how this platform performs as an off-grid rolling home then check out the builds from Down 2 Mob overland, OZ Ranger, and Mountain Trail RV. Furthermore, the Ranger is also a favorite with our team with various models being tested on the Expedition Portal YouTube channel, including a build from ARB and the 2020 Raptor. Today’s 2021 Ford Ranger XLT 4×4 has covered just 23,000 miles and features premium modifications (“totaling over $21,000”) and is topped with an RSI Smart Cap.
