Space & practicality

How it copes with people and clutter

Regular Cab Rangers will seat two tall adults comfortably, but it's strictly a two-seater. Super Cab models have a fold-down bench behind the front seats that will seat a further two, but adults will really struggle for leg room as those seats are meant for occasional use.

The most spacious and practical Ranger – and, indeed, the one that we’d recommend – is the Double Cab. With lots of head and leg room front and rear, it will seat four tall adults relatively easily or five with a bit of shoulder rubbing for those in the back.

The fewer seats you have, the shorter the cab is and, as a result, the longer the rear load bay becomes. That means the Regular Cab carries the most gear, but even Double Cab models are able to fit a standard pallet in the back. Payload weight depends very much on cab type and engine, but most models will carry more than one tonne and some up to 1232kg. The majority of Rangers will tow 3500kg, while all can pull trailers or caravans up to 2500kg. In this respect, the Ranger mixes with the best for payload and out-tows pick-ups such as the Mitsubishi L200 and Volkswagen Amarok.
