The Ford Ranger Raptor X Special Edition in exclusive True Red in now available in Malaysia. Introduced by Sime Darby Auto ConneXion (SDAC), the sole distributor for Ford in Malaysia, this is the first Red Raptor to be introduced in the local market.

The Ranger boasts first in-class safety features as standard, such as Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with Vehicle and Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning and Assist.
The Ranger Raptor was first introduced in Malaysia at the end of 2018. It is Asia Pacific’s first and only factory-built high-speed off-road performance truck and is designed to thrill even the most hardcore extreme adventure enthusiast, right off the dealership lot.
With learnings gained from Ford’s F-150 Raptor, the Ranger Raptor’s unique chassis frame had been newly-developed and extensively modified for high speeds and endurance off-road. Its race-bred suspension has also been specifically crafted to tackle the toughest terrains, smoothing out jumps, bumps and ruts. No other production truck in Malaysia features the legendary FOX Racing Shox and a huge ultra-strength bash plate as standard equipment.
Further, its cutting-edge Terrain Management System offers six preset driving modes to conquer virtually any terrain, at the turn of a dial. Inspired by the Baja 1000 Desert Race, the famed Baja Mode dials down traction, improves responsiveness and shifting speed, and optimises the Ranger Raptor for high-speed off-roading.
Performance-wise, the Raptor delivers 213 PS of power and 500 Nm of torque which travel through Ford’s latest 10-speed automatic transmission with PaddleShift technology.
“With its Ford Performance DNA, Ranger Raptor is undoubtedly the ultimate and only performance pickup truck in Malaysia that has been perfected for everyday urban use in addition to commanding the harshest off-road terrains at thrilling speeds. With this Special Edition, we hope to inject excitement into our lineup of well-loved Ranger vehicles,” said Turse Zuhair, Head of Sales, Sime Darby Auto ConneXion.
