Ford Ranger Named 2024 Car Of The Year In Argentina

The recently-redesigned Ford Ranger has racked up its fair share of accolades from around the globe as of late, including Best Pickup honors in the 2024 Parkers Van and Pickup Awards, the 2024 International Pickup Award (IPUA), and Best Commercial Vehicle in the 2024 PIA Awards. Now, the Ford Ranger continues to add to that list after being named 2024 Car of the Year in Argentina by the PREMIA Group.

Production of the all-new Ford Ranger began at the Pacheco Assembly plant in Argentina last summer, and now, that same mid-sizer has received one of Argentina’s most prestigious automotive honors from a non-profit made up entirely of journalists. Seven finalists were chosen for this particular award, after which jurors awarded each a possible 25 points to determine the best of the best. This year, the Ford Ranger topped all of its competition after being awarded 65 points in total.

Those nine journalists evaluated every new vehicle released during the entire duration of the 2023 calendar year for this particular honor, with each being instructed to award each of them at least one point, but no more than 10 each. This led to the Ranger achieving a pretty impressive score of 65 out of 90 possible points.

After being built in Argentina at the Pacheco plant for a number of years, that same facility underwent a a remodel with a total investment of $80 million in preparation for production of the all-new next-generation Ford Ranger. Following its massive investment in Pacheco, Ford noted that this facility is now “a 4.0 manufacturing operation,” which features the latest in high-tech equipment and a vastly improved production capacity that now stands at 110,000 units annually – a rather substantial 70 percent increase over its prior limit.
