Sime Darby Auto ConneXion (SDAC), the sole distributor for Ford in Malaysia, today launched the New Ford Ranger FX4 in Malaysia via Facebook and YouTube Live through a product walkaround session, the first pickup truck in the country to be launched on both platforms simultaneously.
“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 un-compromised 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,” added Syed Ahmad.
The New Ford Ranger FX4 has a unique identity with a new design mesh grille in Ebony Black, plus 18-inch gloss black rims wrapped in All-Terrain Tyres. The striking bold ‘FX4’ decal and emblem that is set against its muscular exterior provides even more distinction against the other Ranger variants.
The strong FX4 identity continues inside the cabin with leather-accented seats that are embossed with the striking FX4 logos on the seatbacks. These complement the contrasting red stitching that has been applied to the gear selector, center console, instrument panel, center console, door trims, handbrake and the Ranger’s FX4 steering wheel.
Special FX4-branded carpet mats finish its interior enhancements, retaining the Ranger’s premium and comfortable car-like interior.
