Ford Courier Review and Road Test
Our opinion is that the Ford Courier is one of the best products to come out of the Ford factory. It is a car that promises all-round performance and drivability to its owner. The Ford Courier is considered to be an efficient work vehicle both on and off the road.
The Ford Courier we reviewed was the 4 door 4×4 Turbo Diesel Super Cab a new addition.
Ford Couriers can be found with a choice of two engines; the familiar 2.6-liter petrol engine and the 2.5-liter turbo-charged and intercooled diesel engine. The core of the AXT Turbocharger System that is found in the Ford Courier is a custom-built Garrett water-cooled turbocharger. The designer and producer being Allied Signal; who use technological resources of Aerospace and Engineered Materials. The Garrett turbochargers that are used in Ford Couriers are often considered the best turbochargers on the market.
Another point of the Ford Courier worth mentioning is the fact that the chassis uses box-section members and is found to be rather stiff. The fenders wheel wells load gate floor panel and other panels of the Ford Courier are made of galvanized steel.
A Smooth Start
Another point that has made Ford Courier one of the most widely acknowledged trucks is that it is genuinely strong and tough similar to its F-series cousins. All the engine needs is one go to start!
All the 4WD models of Ford Courier have a 70-liter fuel tank with standard 16 wheels. The 4×2 super and crew cab have a 63 liter tank with 14 wheels. For safety the Ford Courier has a drivers airbag along with other safety features like side door anti-intrusion beams and a collapsible steering column.
