Ford Bronco and Ranger EV Production Set to Start at the End of the Decade

The AA DRIVEN Car of the Year's range will expand in 2019 thanks to Ford's new Ranger 3.0 litre V6 turbo-diesel engine,

 which will power a new Platinum variant. It is compatible with an existing model of the new Everest SUV with the same name.

The Platinum, which costs $84,490, is the most expensive Ranger with the new V6, which is a derivation of a unit used by the F-150 in the US. 

The 184kW/600Nm V6 is already available in the custom Ranger Sport ($75,490) and as an option on the Wildtrak ($82,490).

The 10-speed automatic and full-time AWD system are standard. 

The Ranger Platinum is designed to feel

more opulent than the Wildtrak:
