Review of the new Ford Ranger 2012 vs VW Amarok Bi-TDI 2012

Already on the way is clear: modern pickups can not only carry small pine trees and piles of gravel, but now, despite a rigid rear axles carry up to five adults comfortably across the country.

Review of the new Ford Ranger 2012 vs VW Amarok Bi-TDI 2012

In this country, however, they lead a shadowy existence, what the VW Amarok has not changed.


It is available in Germany since 2010 and is based on straight lines, solid construction and powerful TDI engines, which can be combined with manual and automatic transmissions. The base diesel with 140 hp (from € 23 205) has not, moreover, all-wheel drive, but rear-wheel drive.


Similarly, it is the cheapest Ford Ranger, who is competing for 24 978 € with a 125 hp diesel, but compared to the VW not only as a single (two doors, two seats) and crew cab (four doors, five seats) may be ordered, but also as an extra cabin with two double doors and two rear emergency seats.


For today's party at the gravel pit, we are each in the most powerful four-door model from - the Ranger 2.3 TDCi Ford Ranger and the VW Amarok 2.0 Bi-TDI. 


During the five-cylinder turbo diesel Ford Ranger at 1,500 rpm 470 Nm of torque to all four wheels distributed (six courses are managed automatically for 1,190 € extra charge), the four-cylinder diesel engine of the VW Amarok uses less displacement in combination with two turbochargers, what does at 1,750 rpm 420 Nm. 


Chill of around 100 kilograms lighter VW conclusion despite his eight-speed automatic transmission (2.434 €) is not brisk, but he is the Rangers beaten in consumption. According to the manufacturer the consumptions of 7.5 to 10.4 liters per 100 kilometers.


Ford Ranger 3.2 TDCi modern and styled by pickup


When the gravel pit is finally reached, Ford Ranger 3.2 TDCi rage and VW Amarok 2.0 BiTDI going splendidly and show what their all-wheel systems. Here are also impressive details such as the hill descent assistant, who can roll down the heavy trays at crawling speed.


Then again, the powerful engines provide rich thrust, which is distributed each beautifully harmonious. While slopes are between vehicle floor and more than 20 inches, the air tastes for adventure in the cockpit - a well-tempered, because of course there is an additional charge, a two-zone air conditioning.


The differences between the two models lie mainly in their appearance: The Ford Ranger 2.3 TDCi embodies the modern, styled pickup, the more prominent lines carrying the steel and comes up with a playful interior.


His small, grippy steering wheel and the knob on the center console Island remember the Fiesta. 


The optional leather seats are comfortable, the processing could be better in some places. Like the VW Amarok 2.0 BiTDI acting compared as an A4-Pickup: sleek body, simple cockpit, comfortable rear seat, no surprises.
What to buy? If you are bored with the sobriety of the VW Amarok 2.0 BiTDI, the Ford Ranger 2.3 TDCi.


He is the more striking car, but uses a bit more.
