Cashing in on the success of its Ranger brand in South Africa, US motoring company Ford has launched a limited edition Ford Ranger Fx4.
The Fx4 badge is derived from the all-conquering Ford F-Series pick-ups in the United States, and reinforces the “Built Ford Tough” DNA that defines the Ford Ranger.
The Ranger Fx4 is based on the 3.2-litre XLT Double Cab 4×4, and introduces an array of styling enhancements.
“The Ranger Fx4 fills a unique space in our current line-up as it offers our valued Ranger customers a vehicle that has been personalised as part of our standard manufacturing process, but introduces an entirely new level of exclusivity and appeal,” said Tracey Delate, GM, marketing – Ford Motor Company Sub-Saharan Africa Region.
“This is an exciting special addition to the Ranger line-up that has its own distinct personality, and was designed to be unique in a cluttered market place,” Delate said.
“There’s a strong demand for accessorising and customising the standard Ranger amongst enthusiast customers, and the Ranger Fx4 fills that niche superbly, while maintaining the exceptional capabilities of the XLT model.”
The Ranger Fx4 incorporates a number of distinctive styling changes, including attractive black finishes for the radiator grille, fog lamp bezels, exterior mirrors, roof rails, as well as the door and tailgate handles.
The 17-inch alloy wheels are supplied in Panther Black finish. The same colour is adopted for the side steps, rear bumper and special Fx4 tubular sports bar located in the load bay – the latter protected by a fitted bedliner.
To round off the design, unique Fx4 decals are applied on the sides and rear tailgate.
The Ranger Fx4 is exclusively available in four colour choices: Frozen White, Moondust Silver, Sea Grey and Panther Black.
