Overland Classifieds :: 2020 Ford Ranger w/ 2021 Alu-Cab Khaya

Australia is one of the world’s ultimate proving grounds for overland vehicles, and any rig capable of conquering this challenging environment is generally well-suited to round-the-world travel. The Ford Ranger, alongside the Toyota Hilux, is one of the best-selling trucks in Australia (which says a lot about the build quality and capability) with more than 50,000 sold in 2021 alone. It’s a similar story here in the UK, where Auto Express awarded the Ranger Pick-Up of the Year in 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022.

What makes this truck so popular? Firstly, Ford is on quite a roll with its engines, which provide plenty of punch yet return impressive economy compared to their rivals. The Ranger is also competitively priced, offers various trim levels, and when equipped with the FX4 off-road package, is a capable 4WD. This immense popularity has resulted in a huge array of aftermarket parts and accessories that can drastically enhance the Ranger’s go-anywhere performance while providing everything needed to camp off-grid. We’ve featured a number of overland-ready examples, including this 2019 w/ Wedge Camper Overland Build, a 2019 w/ Norweld Tray and Canopy, and a 2019 XLT w/ Pop-top Camper. Today’s 2020 FX4 variant (with just 31,000 miles) is still under factory warranty until 2025 and showcases the Lariat interior trim, tasteful modifications and accessories, and a well-equipped interior.

From the Seller:

I felt the Ford Ranger was the perfect size pickup truck—not too big, not small. It’s comfortable, powerful, and quite capable. That said, reliability was my priority, and after owning two Rangers for over four years, covering 90,000 miles and no service calls, I’m a believer. I settled on the Alu-Cab Khaya (slide-in) camper for many reasons. It’s four-season, lightweight, provides easily accessible outdoor storage, low-profile (perfect for ferries and shipping containers), and I can take it off anytime with ease when I need to use the rig as a work truck. Together, the Ranger and Khaya make sense!

The Ranger is fitted with a 2.3-liter four-cylinder motor that produces 270 horsepower, 310 pound-feet of torque, and returns a combined 23 mpg.
