Witness the Ford Ranger Endure the ‘Rangerfuge’

Everyone knows just how passionate the Australians are about everything that they do. Whether it be their critter-catching skills, surfing, or even submitting midsize pickup trucks to arduous torture tests—they do it right.

We previously brought you the introduction to the video series: “Ford Ranger: Science of Truck,” in which Ford Australia set out to create short videos that’d show the consumer just how tough the Ford Ranger is, and therefore win their hearts and wallets. Well, they’ve succeeded!

This particular episode is called ‘The Rangerfuge,’ and it’s exactly what it sounds like. The truck is attached to a rotating platform which exerts extreme centrifugal forces on the Ranger’s chassis and other body components. Attached to the Ranger are two enormous kettle bells weighting up to 1,200 kg. (2,645 lbs.), which make the Rangerfuge test even more hardcore.

I won’t spoil the video for ya, so watch the Australians do what they do best and enjoy the show!
