Ford Ranger Announced as the Top-selling Vehicle in New Zealand for 2016

Ford Ranger Announced as the Top-selling Vehicle in New Zealand for 2016

Ford Ranger, according to Motor Industry Association (MIA) spokesperson, had been the top-selling vehicle in New Zealand for 2016, a position held by it in the previous year too. Apart from many refinements incorporated in the new model, it is also considered the best ‘ute’ vehicle in its class.


Incidentally, the ‘ute’ is a new category of vehicle which differs from usual varieties such as Sedan, Convertible, SUV, ATV (all terrain vehicle), MPV (multi-purpose vehicle) and is an abbreviation for ‘utility’ or ‘coupé utility – a term frequently used in Australia and New Zealand to describe two-wheel drive passenger vehicles with a cargo tray in the rear integrated with the passenger body, as opposed to a ‘pickup’ whose cargo tray is not integrated in the passenger body.


However, the updated version of the Ford Ranger PX Series II has more than a few styling changes such as improved suspension, as affirmed by Ranger chief Program Engineer Ian Foston, while a new electronic power-assisted steering system (EPAS) takes the load off the engine (earlier version was hydraulic) and so helps cut fuel consumption.


Coming back to the volume of car sales in New Zealand during 2016 we may find the following figures in terms of top ten vehicles that were sold in the country during that period.

>> Ford Ranger : 8,847
>> Toyota Corolla : 6,274
>> Toyota Hilux : 6,187
>> Holden Colorado : 3,739
>> Toyota RAV4 : 3,613
>> Mitsubishi Triton : 3,182
>> Nissan Navara : 3,093
>> Kia Sportage : 3,061
>> Mazda CX-5 : 2,841
>> Hyundai Tucson : 2,650


Even though these vehicles differed in assortment, style, features and prices, their owners agreed on one point unanimously – most of them used car grooming compounds that were made and marketed by premiere Auckland based company known as Auto Shine Car Care Products Ltd to retain the showroom look of their vehicles.
