Ford Just Made The Ranger Luxurious With New Platinum Variant

The new Ford Ranger Platinum serves as the most luxurious and road-biased variant of the Ranger model range.

The 2023 Ford Ranger has been a huge success for the brand. The newly-redesigned pickup has been very popular among customers looking for a pickup that’s at the forefront of technology and capability. However, while pickups are often used for work or nowadays, adventures such as camping, this new Ford Ranger Platinum variant serves as the pinnacle and most road-biased version of the pickup.

Whereas the Wildtrak showcases the Ranger in its most rugged form, the Platinum treatment is the more luxurious, road-biased model. This is evident through the generous use of chrome for the grille, the 20-inch two-tone wheels, and who would miss the “Platinum” script written on the pickup’s hood.

The 2023 Ford Ranger Platinum also gets the brand’s first implementation of its Flexible Rack System (FRS), in which the sports bar can be moved forward or backward, thus giving owners an ingenious method of hauling long items on its roof rack. Lastly, the Ford Ranger Platinum also gets a damped, soft-closing tailgate as opposed to slamming it shut.

Inside, the new Ranger Platinum gets upgraded with a 12.4-inch fully-digital gauge cluster as opposed to the 8-inch screen on all the other variants. Other goodies that are unique to this range-topping Platinum model include heated and cooled front seats, quilted leather upholstery, two-person memory for the driver’s seat, accent stitching on the dash, and a premium B&O sound system.

The Ford Ranger Platinum is only available with the range-topping 3.0-liter turbo diesel V6 that produces 247 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque, which drives all four wheels via a 10-speed automatic. Based on the engine specs, the Ranger Platinum is an Australia-exclusive affair, at least for now.

The new Ford Ranger Platinum is now available in Australia for customers to order. Deliveries will start on April 2023, and here’s to hoping that this fully-loaded V6 Ranger will also be destined for the Philippine market.
