Ford Ranger Tremor – less is more

If you thought that Ford has already saturated the market with any possible Ranger derivative you could possibly want… think again. Two additional models were

Big shoes to fill

The previous generation of the Ford Everest was one of the most popular offerings within its segment. During its tenure, it gained a massive fanbase that developed great loyalty toward the vehicle and the brand itself. Anton Willemse Jnr was one of those fans and, as such, he was eager to see if the new-generation Everest – launched in South Africa towards the end of 2022 – could fill the very big shoes left by its predecessor.

Like a Bat out of hell

Meat Loaf’s 1977 hit song could just as well have been written about the new Ford Ranger Raptor. ANTON WILLEMSE SNR insists that this is probably the craziest and most fun vehicle he has ever driven, and that it might be a while before we see anything similar on the roads.

“Well, I can see myself tearing up the road, faster than any other boy has ever gone.”

No need to break the bank

There is a bit of a predicament with the new Ford Ranger Double Cab XLT Bi-Turbo 4×4 Auto. ANTON WILLEMSE SNR believes it is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. Because what is it actually?

Call of the wild

Towards the end of 2022 Ford introduced the next-generation Everest in two derivatives: the Sport and the Platinum. Now, the range has been expanded with the addition of a second Sport model and two XLT’s. However, for LIANA REINERS, the biggest news is the arrival of the Everest Wildtrak.

Tigers for Africa

The Free State is probably the last place on earth you would associate with Bengal tigers, but a ground-breaking conservation project on the banks of the Vanderkloof Dam in Philippolis is helping to save the world’s most powerful cat. Mary Willemse jumps in the Ford Everest Sport and sets off to explore this enchanting, distinctly different destination.

Vans make a comeback

For as long as I can remember, the Volksiebussie was pretty much the only option when it came to minivans for family use in South Africa. It ticked all the right boxes and was as common on the roads within the Kruger as impalas. However, in recent years, this bus has been joined by a plethora of new options, all way more luxurious than the kombi made famous by David Kramer and his rooi velskoene. Mary Willemse drove a few recently and shares her thoughts.

Ford Ranger Raptor – We have lift-off!

It’s been a long wait, but the highly anticipated next-generation Ford Ranger Raptor has finally made its debut in South Africa. Featuring smarter technology, tougher hardware, mechanical and technical precision, and plenty of raw power, this just might be the ultimate off-road bakkie for true performance enthusiasts.
