100 years of Ford
What is even more remarkable is that the Ford truck  is celebrating 100 years of being an iconic pickup truck in the automotive industry when history was carved way back on 29 July, 1917!
 
“It’s an amazing test of time for Ford trucks as they celebrate a century of leadership, innovation, capability and durability for their iconic trucks,” said Syed Ahmad Muzri Syed Faiz, Managing Director, Sime Darby Auto Connexion, adding that SDAC is extremely proud and honoured to be a part of Ford truck’s 100-year celebration.
 
“We hope more Malaysians will take this limited opportunity to make a smart choice to book and drive home this powerful truck,” he said.

Built Capable & Tested to The Extreme
The Ranger’s cutting-edge technologies that enable solutions to everyday challenges makes it stand apart from traditional pickup trucks. To prove this, the Ranger was pushed beyond boundaries with extreme tests in the real world to showcase its toughness in a series of videos - Science of Trucks at Ford Malaysia’s YouTube channel.

“The Ranger is able to handle everything thrown at it with its wide array of smart technologies. Today’s Ranger builds on strengths that lifelong customers have come to love, and then taking them to a whole new level,” he added.

The videos document the Ranger’s Towing Capability, Frame and Chassis strengths that were put to the test by strapping 600 kg of mass and spun at 4.75Gs of opposing forces. Adaptive Load Control, Dynamic Stability Control and Rollover Mitigation capabilities, meanwhile, were tested by dropping a load of bricks and an ATV into the back of a moving Ranger.

Smart technologies such as Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with Traction Control in the Ranger helps to control understeering and oversteering by correcting the driving line through a combination of brake application to the appropriate wheel and a reduction in engine torque. Adaptive Load Control, which takes into consideration the loading condition of the vehicle and ensures DSC is then applied accordingly.

On top of these features is the Rollover Mitigation system to identify a potentially dangerous driving situation and activate the Electronic Stability Program to restore stability. Hill Launch Assist and Hill Descent Control help to pull away on steep inclines and stay in control on steep downhill grades easily.

Built Safe
The Ranger Wildtrak variant features Adaptive Cruise Control, an intelligent feature that uses radar sensors to detect traffic ahead, and automatically adjusts the cruise control speed to maintain a safe distance from the car in front.
