The Ford Ranger ute has won the International Pick-Up Award 2013.

The Ranger, named NZ Autocar Car of the Year in 2011, won its latest award after extensive testing in England, heading off the Iszuu D-Max and the Volkswagen Amarok.

Every member of the judging panel ranked the new Ranger as their number one choice; praising its performance on- and off-road, strong engine line-up, payload and towing capability, and safety.

The Ranger's win was the third "international" award for Ford when added to the ''International Van of the Year 2013'' for the all-new Transit Custom; and the company’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine was named the 2012 ''International Engine of the Year''.
