We knew pretty much all the other details on the new Ford Ranger ute already, and now we have one of the final pieces in the puzzle: fuel efficiency.
UPDATE, 04/07/2022 – A Ford Australia spokesperson has clarified the Ford Ranger Raptor can run on 91 RON regular unleaded petrol, but power and torque outputs will drop when not using 98 RON.
The Ranger’s claimed fuel economy figures have been uploaded to the Green Vehicle Guide (GVG) website, which is run by the Australian Government.

The website details all the different fuel economy and emissions figures for every single 2022 Ford Ranger powertrain setup. This includes the 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol engine in the Raptor.
These Australian-market fuel economy figures for the new Ranger follow preliminary figures that were revealed in May. It’s worth noting these figures were according to NEDC testing, which is typically more lenient.
All of the claimed fuel economy figures on the GVG website are according to ADR testing and have been conducted in controlled laboratory conditions.
The website says that “your on-road fuel consumption and emissions will depend on the circumstances in which you operate your vehicle”.
The following are the claimed combined, urban and extra urban fuel economy figures for every 2022 Ford Ranger variant available:
Almost all variants of the Ranger require diesel besides the baja-ready Ranger Raptor.
In order to unlock the full 292kW of power and 583Nm of the Ranger Raptor’s 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6, you’ll need to fuel up with 98RON premium unleaded petrol.
As previously detailed, all the powertrains for the 2022 Ford Ranger meet Euro 5 emissions standards.
Idle stop-start is available on the 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel and 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo petrol engines.
It’s worth noting that certain fleet vehicles with the 2.0-litre Bi-Turbo diesel engine will have idle stop-start fitted to meet customer requirements.
The 2022 Ford Ranger ute is set to go on sale in Australia in July, with the Ranger-based Everest SUV and Ranger Raptor following in August.
Pricing for the Ranger starts at $35,930 before on-road costs for the entry-level XL 4×2 single cab chassis with the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel, and extends to $85,490 before on-road costs for the full-on Ranger Raptor.
Ford has previously confirmed the new Range has a maximum braked towing capacity of 3500kg (2500kg for Raptor) with a 350kg down ball limit. Payload is up to 1327kg, gross vehicle mass (GVM) is up to 3350kg, and gross combined mass (GCM) is up to 6400kg.
