Department of Defence Ford Ranger Escort Vehicle

The Escort Ford Ranger Vehicles are to be used throughout Australia by the Department of Defence to ensure safe passage of Heavy Vehicles/Machinery which is to be relocated on the public roads.

These pilot vehicles will typically take positions directly in front and behind the truck or convoy being escorted. For over width or over height trucks, one escort vehicle will ride several miles ahead of the truck to ensure the road ahead can accommodate the truck's oversize dimensions.
