Dingwall Ford

If this is the first time you’ve driven a vehicle and you’re looking to buy one of your own, you may feel overwhelmed with all your options. Our team at Dingwall Ford is here to help you think through what you want and need and make the best decision for your lifestyle.

If you are a first-time driver (or the folks who love one), Dingwall Ford in Kenora wants you to check out the Ford Ranger. You’ll find capabilities, features, and safety innovations that provide confidence and peace of mind.


The Ford Ranger is an athletic-looking truck. It evokes feelings of adventure and possibility. You’ll notice the low-angled windshield right away, which is designed to channel air efficiently over the roof and reduce wind noise. A wide grille opening and rounded wheel arches help with aerodynamic function, too.

High-strength steel frame and frame-mounted steel bumpers, combined with a class-exclusive advanced turbocharged gas engine, means that you can count on your Ranger for both day-to-day drives and on challenging off-road terrain.

If you know that off-roading is where you like to be more often than not, we encourage you to look at the Tremor Off-Road Package. Outfitted with new magnetic-painted alloy wheels, modified heavy-duty off-road suspension, and six new upfitter switches, you’ll have all the extras you need to conquer the trail with confidence.

If you’re heading to the lake, you can hook up the boat or jet skis without any trouble! The Ranger provides a Best-in-Class maximum payload of 1860 pounds and up to 7500-pound towing capability. So hook it up. Load it in the back. Hit the road!


The comfortable interior provides bucket seating that is both firm and supportive, accommodating up to five in the versatile and spacious four-door SuperCrew. The SuperCrew also features four full-size doors and rear under-seat storage. Our SuperCab comes with a 6-foot bed, and the SuperCrew boasts a bed of 5 feet.

FordPass is a one-stop, complimentary app that provides access and connection to your vehicle as you operate throughout your day. From your smartphone, you’ll be able to:

    • Lock, unlock, and start your vehicle remotely

    • Use FordPay to pay for service

    • Receive vehicle information (like gas level and oil life) and schedule service

    • Compare fuel prices at stations as you go

    • Find parking ahead of time

    • Access 24/7 roadside assistance

Enjoy a 4G LTE in-vehicle Wi-Fi Hotspot when you opt in to FordPass Connect. This convenience also provides wireless access for up to ten devices at a time, up to 50 feet outside your vehicle. Your passengers will delight in being able to stay connected no matter where you roam!


Safety is never a luxury. If you want to feel better about sending your first-time driver out on the road, the safety innovations you’ll find in the Ford Co-Pilot360 Technology suite will do the trick. Safety features include:

    • Blind Spot Information with Trailer Coverage. Ease lane-change anxiety with this system that alerts you if a vehicle is detected within your vehicle’s blind spot or even alongside the trailer you’re towing. You can keep your eyes on the road ahead where they belong, and trust that we’ll let you know when the way is clear.

    • Adaptive Cruise Control. This is a lot like the cruise control you’re familiar with, but with a kick. You set the speed you’d like to maintain and the distance between your vehicle and the traffic ahead. Then, we maintain both.

    • Auto High-Beam Headlamps. These headlamps detect ambient light and automatically adjust your high and low beams accordingly. You will never blind oncoming traffic, and you’ll always have enough light to see all the twists and turns ahead.

    • Lane-Keeping System. When your vehicle veers out of your detectable lane of traffic, our system alerts you to refocus and realign. If you are unable to realign your vehicle, our system will do it for you.

These are only a few of the many ways our system works to keep you safe. Be sure to ask your sales team member to walk you through all the features available on your Ranger. You won’t regret it!
