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 4x4 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.”

The Ford Ranger FX4 is available in [Aluminum Metallic, Meteor Grey] at dealerships

nationwide. Official on the road pricing for New Ranger FX4 in Peninsular Malaysia is

RM121,888.00 including GST.
