Love the Old English Sheepdog in one of the photos, we use have one they are gentle giants just a bit clumsy have a lovely temperament safe great with children, have many memories of our bobtail, happy days she would have loved that fry up on the tailgate.
Certainly will be looking to buy one, l bet it will be extremely expensive, normally pay cash keep vehicles for about 15-17 years before l change them.
Our tyrannical council in Cornwall are introducing imposing blanket draconian 20 MPH speed limits across our county (similar to a US State) off main highways.
Ranger PHEV would be handy, as driving around everywhere at 20 MPH in second gear in my Ranger 2.5 diesel will become costly. With a Ranger PHEV l would probably run round on electric most days, only do long trips over 100 miles about 10-15 times a year now. Public UK electric charging infrastructure is abysmal pretty much non existent, don't think l would enjoy joining a 5 hour queue waiting to charge up a BEV on a long trip thats if you are lucky to find one that works, range anxiety on long trips don't want that.
BEV Ranger would be so heavy would be moved in higher UK Government taxation class making them prohibitively expensive to own, you would also need to do another heavy goods vehicle driving test to able to legally drive them on UK roads.
PHEV Ranger offers the best of both worlds, ICE quick fill-ups no range anxiety on long trips & offer cheap clean BEV truck locally in draconian imposed 20 MPH Cornish speed limits. Normally don't buy anything thats new to the market, till its had a proper shakedown for two years in service had all the early recalls problems sorted and hear all the problems owners have experienced, Aussie designed Rangers are pretty good not had any reliability issues at all on my Ranger, the 2.5 diesel was used in Jaguar/Land Rover & London black taxi cabs, only issue has been getting some spares from Ford that they don't make anymore, after market parts are cheaper & available not a problem, so l expect Ford's PHEV Ranger will be pretty good.
