VFACTS October 2022: Ford Ranger is the best-selling vehicle in Australia


  • Ranger is the best-selling vehicle in October
  • LCV market remains strong
  • LDV and GWM remain in top 10

The all-new Ford Ranger remains the best-selling 4×4 in Australia, with more than 5000 next-generation models selling in October 2022.

Supply seems to be catching up to demand as 2022 draws to a close, with a total of 5147 Ranger 4×4 units sold for the month, giving it a staggering 30.8 per cent share of the total Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) market.

The Toyota HiLux still holds a 20.9 per cent share of the LCV 4×4 market, shifting 3492 units for the month, which is consistent with its sales figures so far in 2022.

In further good news for the Blue Oval, the Ranger has waltzed past the Hilux on the overall charts to be the best-selling vehicle in October – a title consistently held by the HiLux in 2022.

When combining 4×2 and 4×2 units, a total of 5628 Ranger sales were registered in October. The ever-popular HiLux remained second overall, with 4890 sales recorded. Toyota’s Rav4 was third (3222 sales).

The HiLux still remains the best-selling 4×4 vehicle on the year-to-date charts, with 40,058 sales compared to the Ranger’s 34,536.

Australia’s thirst for light commercial vehicles doesn’t seem to be slowing down, either, with the LCV market up 10.9 per cent compared to October 2021 – that’s a total of 2103 more LCVs sold.

The SUV market is also booming compared to October 2021 – up 37.1 per cent in October this year. It’s the Passenger Vehicle market that’s consistently bearing the brunt of these consumer changes, with sales down 16.5 per cent for the month.

Within the SUV market, Ford recorded 1271 sales of its next-generation Everest, which is up from 801 sales registered in September 2022 due to stock filtering out to customers.

Plus, Toyota experienced a decent month for its 300 Series LandCruiser, selling 1217 units – up from 634 sales in September 2022.

Perhaps a sign of the current economic climate, but the budget utes from LDV and GWM continue to sell well and remain in the top 10 on the 4×4 sales charts.

The LDV T60 recorded 893 sales for the month, while the GWM Cannon registered 684.
