Does anyone tow with a 2018 Ford Ranger 2.2 XLS or XL 4x4 (Auto) and is it worth going from the Nissan Navara 2.5 D 2 x4 (manu)?

Does anyone tow with a 2018 Ford Ranger 2.2 XLS or XL 4x4 (Auto)? I am thinking of selling my Nissan Navara 2.5 D 2 x4 (manual) and I do not know if I will be happy going for the Ford. On paper they are close in terms of power (Nissan 128kw and 403Mn Vs Ford 118Kw and 385 Mn). I tow a Jurgens XT140 and I am planning to go to Mozambique and Namibia (So not heavy 4x4 ing, sand driving etc).

Sleep met 2018 Ford 2.2 XL auto maar nie 4x4 nie. Sleep Sprite Swing en het al van Durban na Kaapstad gesleep sonder probleme. Tans in Swadini en het al die bergpasse by Sabie en Graskop gesleep en is baie gelukkig met sy krag.

EK was bekommerd oor die auto box en die krag. Ek geniet om te sleep veral lang pad (JHB toe Mosselbay). Daar is ook net min reviews op the 2,2 auto as n sleep voertuig. Thanks vir die info.

I Johan. 

2018 2.2 in Question. 

I had the same or more or less problem, i cant find a huge amount of info on Ford 2.2 and tow experience.... Lets not fool ourselves..... Were talking about a 2.2πŸ€”....

My first outing (2.2 manual)... Sorry πŸ˜…... Was down to Mosselbay with a Jurgens LT670 and it was loaded like a Maputo Taxi. And was surprised when i checked the fuel consumption, im not a hard or a fast driver.... 120....130... With minimal downshift. If my memory serves me right... 10.5km/ltr.

So 2years later i recently purchased a Sprite Swing(980kg).

Again came the question... Its only a 2.2?...

So listen'ing to the some good advice from a few hard core caravan'rs( toppies from work)... I hitched the Sprite to the 2.2 and started prayingπŸ˜‰... 

And so.... Leaving the dealership heading home(120km) trip...the  conference was back up to speed after the first 50km towing. 

The 2.2 does the job just fine. Yes a 3.2 would have been nice, but the 2.2 impressed me. Towing in 5th and overtaking in 4th i was very... Very happy with  the 2.2, and yes... If i have known back then, i would have opted for the auto.... 

It feels as if engine rpm and speed dnt match and one tends to shif to 6th(cuz the the shift light tells u to).... Bit annoying... 

But overall, im very impressed with 2.2 performance and fuel consumption.

'n Vriend van my ('n verskriklike kermgat) sleep met die Ranger 2.2 outomaties en is heel tevrede. Hy het vantevore gesleep met 'n Jeep en later 'n 3.0 Fortuner, ook outomaties.

Ek het nog nie self met my Ranger 2.2 handrat my karavaan gesleep nie, maar wel al 'n dubbelas treiler en kan ook nie kla nie. Terloops, my Ranger gee my op die gemiddeld so 12.3km/L. Sy ritrekenaar is so akkutaat dat ek nie nou meer self ook die somme maak nie. Niemand betroubaar kon nog vir my die 2.2 outomaties se brandstof verbruik aandui nie. Die 3.2 Ranger gee so rondom 10km/L as jy baie mooi ry.

Ek het die geleentheid gehad om 'n Classique met die 2.2 Ranger Manual te sleep.  Hy het hom goed van sy taak gewyt.

My oorlede kamp maat sin.  Hy het met die kombinasie 2 x van PTA af sy Classique Tietiesbaai toe gesleep.

Geen pyne gehad nie.  2.2 Ranger sleep soos 'n bom.  Dan sleep ekself met die 3,2 Auto en sal dit aanraai want die auto box kies normaal weg die rat wat beste is vir die werk wat hy moet doen.

Sonder Jesus is ek niks! ! ! !

Al wat nodig is Sit die auto box op die Speedshit kant, hy bly net raps langer in die rat as hy swaar trek maar werk 100 %  ek het 'n Mazda BT50 2.2 auto by die handelaar gekry vir paas naweek om te toets (Ek ry die 3.2) was gelukkig met sy vermoee  Ek sleep met my 3.2 ook in die speedshift mode

Ek weet nie hoe julle manne sulke goeie brandstof-verbruik kry nie. 

My Fortuner V6 petrol gee my hoogstens 6km/L. As ek SONDER n karavaan ry kry ek dalk 8km/L

Met die boswa kry ek ook net 6.

Ek ry nie juis vinniger as 110 nie en erg-bulte gooi ek 80 teen 3000 revs in derde rat. Op die oop pad ry ek 2300 revs teen 110 km/U

Dis seker maar die prys wat jy betaal vir cubic inches en serious oemph. 

You'll never never know if you never never go

as ek sleep is dit so rondom 17 l  per 100km  ook maar so om en by 7km/l

Ek het gemiddeld 6.3 Km/L gekry met my boot van Bfn na Richardsbay en terug oor 1821km met dit 2.0L Ranger.  Drie persone in voertuig. 

Die boot was gelaai met 3 tente, slaapgoed, 240L Frieskas en al my ander visvang en kampgoed. Ek skat so 2.7 + Ton.  Weer kondisies soos wind was baie mooi in alby rigtings.

Die 4.0LToyotas is lieflike engins maar hy is baie dors al sleep jy niks of baie min.  Die NM is maar in die min kant met baie KW wat hom lewendig maak.  Dis 'n kanniedood engin

Dankie aan Caravan Park Support.  Ek is terug.

Baie na aan wat ek met my 3.2 kry as ek sleep

Ek gebruik so tussen 15-17 l / 100 L km hang van wind af

Swannie met my ou 3.2 het ek tussen 5 en 5.3 Km/L gekry met dieselfde boot en kamptoerusting.
