Malaysia Ford Ranger Review – 7 reasons to buy new Ford Ranger FX4 in Malaysia
1) Stealthy style. The blacked-out grille and accents, muted graphics, and gunmetal alloy wheels sexy up the FX4 without screaming. Even the large FX4 vinyls are discreet. All in all, it makes for a subliminally handsome vehicle, without looking over the top.
2) Functional kit. The FX4 features a wide and flat stepboard instead of the tubular steel one on the Wildtrak. While not as off-road friendly, it’s easier for passengers to use. The rear steel rollbar, bedliner and tie-down points also make it more cargo-friendly than the Wildtrak.
Ford has refreshed its popular Ranger ute for 2016, with styling and tech upgrades aimed at making upper-spec XLT and Wildtrak double cabs more attractive for families.
WHAT IS IT Ford’s five-tier Ranger line up has taken the showroom fight to the Toyota Hilux, and it punches on in 2016 with class-leading safety tech. WHY WE’RE TESTING IT Ford is first to bring safety features like lane departure warning, collision warning and radar cruise control to the light truck segment, and this becomes more important as these vehicles get more popular with family buyers and recreational off-road enthusiasts.
