KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, 18 April 2018 – Sime Darby Auto Connexion (SDAC), the sole distributor of Ford in Malaysia, today announced the latest addition to the popular Ranger line-up – the Ford Ranger Wildtrak 2.2L – at all showrooms nationwide.

Priced at RM127,8881 (*RM133,8882 – for Sabah & Sarawak), the new Ranger Wildtrak 2.2L offers Malaysian consumers an additional option to own one of the world’s toughest, most capable and versatile pickup trucks that best suits their needs at an even more attractive pricepoint.

The Ford Ranger Wildtrak 2.2L comes in three colours including Cool White, Pride Orange and Shadow Black.

“The Ranger continues to be a Malaysian favourite, and the Wildtrak 2.2L will give Ranger customers even more choice to own the toughest, most capable pickup truck in the market,” said Syed Ahmad Muzri Syed Faiz, managing director, Sime Darby Auto Connexion.

To balance power and fuel efficiency, the Ford Ranger Wildtrak 2.2L is powered by a turbocharged 2.2-litre Duratorq four-cylinder TDCi diesel engine putting out maximum power of 160PS at 3,000 rpm and peak torque of 385 Nm at 1,600 to 2,600 rpm. Paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, the improved engine has been carefully calibrated to deliver significant savings to drivers over the life of the vehicle, while also providing the power Ranger customers demand.

Featuring the same muscular, distinctive exterior and modern, smart and functional interior that sets the Ranger Wildtrak apart, the 2.2L variant also boasts a full array of smart and safety features such as SYNC 3 connectivity with Apple Carplay and Android Auto support for enhanced convenience. Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) system also provides precise steering at higher speeds while offering more control for low-speed manoeuvring.

As with all Rangers, the Wildtrak 2.2L is designed and engineered to handle the most extreme terrains with ease. With class-leading 800mm water-wading capability, 235mm ground clearance, exceptional payload capacity and unbeatable towing ability of 3,500kg, owners will have ultimate control on the road and be ready to take on any adventure.

The new Ranger Wildtrak 2.2L also comes with an early bird offer of two years/40,000km (whichever comes first) free service and maintenance. The same offer is now also available for the Wildtrak 3.2L variant.

Built Ford Tough, Now Done Smarter 

A more aggressive exterior design gives the Ford Ranger Wildtrak its tough yet sophisticated look, immediately conveying a sense of ultimate capability. The stylish interior creates a comfortable, contemporary and car-like environment ideal for work, everyday driving and off-the-grid adventures during weekends or holidays.

The Ranger Wildtrak 2.2L offers the same suite of smart technologies and safety features as the 3.2L variant. Key highlights include:

  • SYNC 3 the latest generation of Ford’s in-car connectivity system with an eight-inch touchscreen, giving drivers smarter and safer ways to stay connected using natural voice commands
  •  A 240-volt power socket that can be used to power a laptop or tablet computer anywhere 
  • Lane Departure Warning alerts drivers with a vibration in the steering wheel if it detects the vehicle straying from its lane. If no action is taken to correct the drift, Lane Keeping Aid applies steering torque to guide the vehicle back into its lane 
  • Adaptive Cruise Control makes use of radar sensors to adjust to the flow of traffic. Once the cruising speed is set, it decelerates automatically when traffic slows down and returns to the pre-set speed when the road clears ahead 
  • Adjustable Speed Limiter helps ensure drivers avoid unintentionally exceeding the maximum speed that has been pre-selected 
  • Forward Collision Alert & Mitigation by Brakes lets out a chime and flashes a visual warning on the windscreen when it detects a high probability of a collision. The system also pre-charges the brakes for enhanced stopping power 
  • 4x4 shift on the fly allows for switching between 2WD and 4WD High or Low mode with a knob on the centre console 
  • Electronic locking rear differential helps lock rear wheels together to improve traction in difficult conditions 
  • MyKey system allows owners to customise car settings including top speed, audio volume and seatbelt reminders 
  • Electronic Stability Program with traction control, rollover mitigation and trailer sway control helps to keep the vehicle under control even in adverse conditions 
  • Hill Launch Assist makes steep grades safer to maintain a constant speed while descending 
  • Hill Descent Control helps drivers confidently start off from a slope 
  • Adaptive Load Control calculates the weight and centre of gravity when hauling a load further optimising safety and driving performance 
  • Rear view camera with front and rear parking sensors 
  • Emergency Brake Assist 
  • Six airbags (dual front, side and curtain) 
  • Volumetric burglar alarm system 
  • Immobiliser 
  • ISOFIX mounting points for child seats
