KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, 20 April, 2017 – The Ford Ranger sets the standard for pickup trucks around the world, combining smart technology and sheer capability to leave competitors far behind. Today, Ford raises the bar once again with the new Ford Ranger FX4, bringing a tough and sporty new look and premium features to the Built Ford Tough pickup.
“The Ford Ranger FX4 takes its inspiration from the enthusiast community with an updated grille and striking technical graphics. These emphasize the Ranger’s impressive performance and make a strong visual impression,” said Nick Eterovic, design manager, Ford Asia Pacific.
The Ranger FX4 features an exclusive new grille with a mesh pattern that complements its strong trapezoidal shape, and conveys a sense of power and performance. A bold matte decal design draws the eye to the muscular bonnet, housing a powerful and proven 2.2-liter Duratorq diesel engine. Blacked out fog light bezels complete the truck’s imposing front end.
Along the sides, additional technical graphics emphasize the Ranger’s performance and capability, and identify the truck as a unique FX4 variant. Aggressive, 18-inch Stark Grey painted wheels and a black sports bar were chosen for a cohesive, unified design. On the tailgate, a blacked-out decal features the word RANGER in negative space, allowing the body color to show through.
The strong visual identity of the Ranger FX4 continues inside the cabin, with darker finishes for a bold, technical look. Leather seats complement the dark interior and offer a unique level of refinement within the Ranger lineup.
The Ranger FX4 also features advanced technologies to enhance the driving experience. Ford’s SYNC in-car connectivity system makes it easier than ever for drivers to stay connected while keeping hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. Advanced driver assistance technologies on the Ford Ranger, including Rear Park Assist with reverse camera, Electric Power Assisted Steering, and Electronic Stability Program, are designed to alleviate some of the stress of driving.
Customers who opt for the Ford Ranger FX4 will enjoy all the rugged capability that helps to set the Ford Ranger apart from the competition, including a class-leading ability to wade through water up to 800 mm deep, 230 mm of ground clearance, towing capability of up to 3,500 kg and exceptional payload capacity.
When venturing off-road, a robust electronically controlled transfer case on 4×4 models, an electronic locking rear differential and Hill Descent Control help drivers to take on the most challenging terrains with confidence.
“Our customers in Malaysia already know the Ranger for its raw capability, advanced technologies and rugged, tough appearance,” said Syed Ahmad Muzri Syed Faiz, Managing Director, Sime Darby Auto Connexion. “The Ranger FX4 builds on this foundation with a bold new look and premium features that we think they will love.”
