Ford Motor Company and Sime Darby Auto ConneXion (SDAC), the sole distributor for Ford in Malaysia, has launched the new Ford Ranger FX4 in Malaysia. It is available in three exterior colours i.e. Meteor Grey, Absolute Black and Artic White. Priced from RM126,888 (on-the-road, with insurance), the Ranger FX4 includes a three-year or 100,000 km manufacturer’s warranty (whichever comes first).
The Ford Ranger FX4 has a unique identity with a new design mesh grille in Ebony Black. The striking ‘FX4’ decal and emblem on its muscular exterior provides even more distinction against the other Ranger variants. Rounding out the rugged exterior are the 18″ gloss black rims wrapped in All-Terrain Tyres.
The strong FX4 identity continues in the cabin. The leather-accented seats are embossed with FX4 logos on the seatbacks to complement the contrasting red stitching on the gear selector, centre console, instrument panel, centre console, door trims, handbrake and the Ranger’s FX4 steering wheel. Special FX4-branded carpet mats finish of the interior enhancements, and retain the Ranger’s premium and comfortable car-like interior.
The Ford Ranger FX4 was launched simultaneously on Facebook and YouTube Live. It is the first pickup truck in the country to be launched on both platforms at the same time.
“The New Ford Ranger FX4 is designed for customers who are looking for a truck with a lot more attitude, and those who take their truck on adventures while making use of its best-in-class towing and payload capabilities,” said Syed Ahmad Muzri Syed Faiz, managing director, Sime Darby Auto ConneXion. “It truly is an uncompromised truck for the adventure seeker, and its addition to our line-up of nine variants in Malaysia further reinforces the Ranger’s versatility as a vehicle to suit every lifestyle.”
“Given the current COVID-19 situation, this online launch of the New Ford Ranger FX4 is appropriate in ensuring the continued social distancing guidelines outlined by the Government,” added Muzri. “In an increasingly digital age, it is also in line with our strategy to innovate on ways to bring new experiences to consumers online. We are proud to be the first pickup truck brand in the country to launch a new model digitally on two live platforms.”
Built For Life’s Adventures
The Ranger FX4 is designed for customers who want to blend city living with off-the-grid adventures over tough terrain on weekends. It is powered by the proven Duratorq 2.2L turbodiesel engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The powertrain can deliver 160 PS and 385 Nm of peak torque.
The pick-up truck also includes a host of smart technologies and safety features. Some of the key features include an 8″ touchscreen display, SYNC multimedia system with reversing camera, electronic shift-on-the-fly 4×4, rain sensing wipers, and nimble Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS).
