What used Ford Ranger 4x4 will I get for my budget?
An early example with over 100,000 miles on it will set you back about £8000 but, if you increase the budget to £11,000, you’ll begin to find base model XL Rangers with 75,000 miles or less. £17,000 or more will find you plenty of facelifted Rangers with the improved interior while Euro 6 capable examples from 2017 onwards are more like £19,000. If you fancy something with less than 5000 miles on it, be prepared to spend roughly £23,000.

How much does it cost to run a Ford Ranger 4x4?
No Ranger will be particularly cheap to run. Fuel economy varies quite a lot depending upon which cab style you go for. The highest NEDC economy figure is 43.5mpg for a 158bhp 2.2-litre diesel with a manual gearbox, but drops to as low as 28.2mpg for a 197bhp 3.2-litre diesel auto.
Road tax can also be quite costly. The most polluting 3.2-litre auto sits in the highest tax band of £555 per year, but even the cleanest 2.2-litre manual is no eco-warrior at £230. Any Ranger registered after 1 April 2017 will be charged under the current road tax system; that means a flat rate fee of £140.
Minor servicing costs are similar to those of the Toyota Hilux, but major services can cost considerably more. However, if your Ranger is over four years old and has the smaller 2.2-litre engine, you can take advantage of Ford Motorcraft fixed price servicing for older vehicles. It includes an oil and filter change, pollen filter change and a wash and vac for £149.
