The Ford Ranger is quite possibly the most desirable pick up truck in the market right now. From the Ranger Raptor to the entry level Ranger XL, all are extremely capable pick-up trucks, with the Raptor and the Wildtrak naturally being the most well balanced for on and off-road capabilities.
Today (June 3rd) though the Ranger family will welcome a new member – the New Ford Ranger FX4.
Sime Darby Auto Connexion (SDAC), the official distributor of all Ford vehicles in Malaysia, will be introducing the New Ford Ranger FX4 online via Live Video on Ford Malaysia’s Facebook and Youtube channels. This takes place at 11am.
The updated Ranger FX4 has been vastly improved over the model it replaces.
Far from a regular nip and tuck job typical of model upgrades, the New Ranger FX4 can be immediately recognised by an ebony black grille, black side mirror covers, door handles and a black tailgate handle.
The Ranger FX4 also gets black 18-inch rims and unique FX4 side decals and also a 3D tailgate badge.
It doesn’t end there though, the interior of the new Ranger FX4 is a vast improvement over the old model with new black-leather seats with an embossed FX4 logo.
There is also red contrast stitching adorning the seats, the dash, the steering wheel as well as the centre console.
And because moderns Rangers are brilliant at keeping its occupants entertained, the new Ranger FX4 comes with an eight-inch infotainment system featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity mated to six speakers.
Underneath it all though, there is a 2.2-litre TDCi VGT turbodiesel engine which also powers the Ranger XLT.
This engine puts out a healthy 157hp and 385Nm of torque through a six-speed gearbox that channels all that power to either the rear wheels or all four wheels.
The driver can select whether he wants to drive in 2WD or 4WD mode by simply turning a knob located by the gear lever, even while the Ranger FX4 is on the move.
There is also an electronic-locking rear differential for when the road gets tough.

These accessories consist of a matte black sports bar, a high-definition Digital Video Recorder with an 8GB memory card as well as executive tinting.
