PETALING JAYA, 30 November, 2017 - Sime Darby Auto Connexion (SDAC), the sole distributor of Ford in Malaysia is delighted to announce a double win at the iCar Asia People’s Choice Awards 2017, for the iconic and multiple award winning Ford Ranger and the all-American Ford Mustang as the favourite ‘Pickup of the Year’ and ‘Performance Car of the Year’, respectively!
Dubbed the Oscars of the automotive industry, the iCar Asia People’s Choice Awards 2017 bestows the highest accolade to the crème de la crème in the automotive industry.

“We are extremely proud that both our cars are visibly the favourites and won the hearts of Malaysians nationwide,” said Syed Ahmad Muzri Syed Faiz, Managing Director, Sime Darby Auto Connexion. “We want to thank all Malaysians for their votes and support for the brand as we make the effort to engage our fans every step of the way.”

The Ford Ranger is well known for its unrivalled safety features and smart technologies designed to bulldoze through any challenges thrown at it, especially with its best-in-class payload, water-wading and towing features. The legendary Mustang meanwhile makes a powerful impression and delivers an exhilarating ride in full throttle with heart-pounding performance. Its 5.0L V8 engine produces 416 PS of power and 530 Nm of torque!

“The iCar Asia People’s Choice Awards gave Malaysians a chance to voice their opinion and express their perspective and perception of the cars launched in 2017, whether based on their own experience, price point, car design or even what they perceived about the car brands and models available in the marketplace,” explained Hamish Stone, iCar Asia’s Chief Executive Officer.

Although this is the third consecutive year that iCar Asia has hosted the awards, 2017 marks the first year the winners in the 18 categories were purely chosen by Malaysians themselves via an online voting poll carried out from 12 October till 1November 2017.
