Talk about the different aspects of your tow car and tow advice.

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 2.2🤔....

My first outing (2.2 manual)... Sorry 😅... 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 praying😉... 

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.
