    Default Ranger 3.2 Auto 4x4 DC

    Hi all

    I am in the process of purchasing above mentioned vehicle. Previous shape.

    I am currently driving the 2.2XLS. The manual is killing me. You really need to ref it reasonable hard to keep it going even more so when towing. Because the new model only come in 2.2 XLT manual I decided to go 3.2 with 4x4. They are Selling stock at great prices.

    My computer on 2.2 give me average of 10.2l/100km. I know there is a lot of factors influencing fuel consumption but what consumption should I expect when driving like a normal ( old toppie) at 120km/h gps and not like a mad man. Will it increase allot when towing my Bushlapa of about 1ton loaded.

    Think the luxury of auto etc will make up for more fuel.

    Comments please

    Mine is a 2013 model. I drive like an old man to save fuel. Consumption as follows: in town not towing 10L/100km - towing open road 15L/100km, but I will never buy anything else.

    Ludivgl,

    Die 3.2 is n waste van krag teen die 2.2. En hys swaarder op Diesel. Ek ry n 3.2 omdat ek n beter deal gekry het as op 2.2 en vir die Auto, en ek het eers besef daar is werklik n verskil tussen die 2 toe ek begin karavaan sleep teen kwaai wind. Die 3.2 kom dan eers tot sy volle reg!

    Maar die auto is lekker verby!

    Geniet hom, gooi fotos!

    With the diesel torque pedal box and power box like I had fitted it is a dream vehicle in auto, for towing and cruising but when you need power its there in heaps and buckets.

    It also makes it superb in the rough stuff off road.

    Ludivgl, are you trading you 2.2 in or selling out of hand? What are they trading for more or less? I am very interested in the auto as well. If I can get a good deal on my 2.2 I will definitely take it.

    Hi Ned & zed

    Those figures are not to bad towing. Got that with my 2.2 at times towing. The figures not towing is it with a heavy foot?

    Nope just town driving and school run in traffic... I try not to use more than 1700 rpm.
    The car is definitely happiest on the highway with cruise control on.

    BT50 Auto 3.2: 25k km on the clock, 41 full-ups 50ppm only, 50% heavy traffic, 50% open road and not too careful driving (with the 3.2 auto it is painful not to use the power!!). Average measured at the pump (not car computer) = 10.7 l/100km.

    Drove from Menlyn to Bryanston and back yesterday morning (flowing traffic both ways). Reset the computer at Menlyn and when I stopped at Menlyn again, the computer showed 8.2 l/100km - driving with cruse control on when possible set to 120km/h on this trip. Outstanding consumption - my mates with 2.2 manuals get about the same under the same condition on the same road.

    PS: truck 100% stock standard, factory tyres pumped to 2.5 (cold), but I have Nitrogen in it to run cooler.

    Nice to get something good for Free! I have always used the nitrogen since it is claimed to be better, but for me the main reason is that the pressure stays good for much longer. Without nitrogen, the tyres deflate within a month or so, but with nitrogen the pressure usually drops about 0.1 bar per 3 months ....

    I have the 2015 3.2 Auto.

    Combined (70% highway, 30% town), driving nicely - 10.4l/100km

    Towing Echo 4 trailer 100-110kph - 12.8l/100km

    The auto is great. Just came back from Ponta, the bakkie handled the sand very well with trailer on. Plenty power in that 3.2.
