Earlier this year, Ford Philippines unveiled the Ranger FX4—a pick-up variant that was aimed at the lifestyle-oriented buyer looking for something stylish yet tough. Well, that market has been further expanded with the addition of the new Ranger FX4 4×4.
It’s essentially the same FX4 that boasts of blacked out elements on the mesh grille, mirror caps, door handles, sports bar, and 18-inch alloy rims. It likewise carries over the same interior trims of the 4×2 model such as the embossed FX4 logos, soft touch materials, and 8-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
Power is likewise courtesy of a 2.2-liter Duratorq diesel engine with 160bhp and 284lb-ft of torque, mated to either a manual or automatic gearbox. Driver Assist technologies such as Rear Parking sensors, Cruise Control, and the usual alphabet soup of safety aids are standard.
Yes, the Ford Ranger FX4 4×4 offers the same goodies that lifestyle pick-up truck buyers have come to love about this rig. Yet this time, the availability of a new 4×4 variant broadens its appeal and makes it a viable choice for those folks who want to take their stylish ride off the beaten path when the weekend comes around.
The Ford Ranger FX4 4×4 is available at P1,356,000 for the MT variant and P1,416,000 for the AT version. Ford Philippines is even offering a P50,000 discount for those who will reserve a unit now. Deliveries begin on September 25, 2020.
