Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa has discontinued all Ranger variants that combine the firm’s 3,2 TDCi engine with a six-speed manual gearbox.

As confirmed by Ford’s latest price bulletin (thanks to our friends over at for the tip), five derivatives have been trimmed from the local Ranger bakkie line-up.

The single-cab 3,2 TDCi XLS 4x2 manual, super-cab 3,2 TDCi XLS 4x2 manual, super-cab 3,2 TDCi XLS 4x4 manual, double-cab 3,2 TDCi XLT 4x2 manual and double-cab 3,2 TDCi XLT 4x4 manual have all been removed the range.

For the record, the five remaining 3,2 TDCi models featuring the Blue Oval brand’s six-speed automatic transmission still form part of the line-up.

As a reminder, the 3,2-litre, five-cylinder turbodiesel makes 147 kW at 3 000 r/min and 470 N.m at 1 500 r/min. Other engines offered in the all-diesel local Ranger line-up include a 2,2 TDCi unit, a single-turbo 2,0-litre mill and the range-topping bi-turbo 2,0-litre powerplant.
