In addition to that, two Extended Warranty Plans were also introduced for existing Ford Ranger owners.
“We understand that for our Ranger customers, their vehicles are not just point-to-point modes of transportation. They are an extension of their lifestyle – for work and play besides daily commutes for families and loved ones. With the new 5-year manufacturer’s warranty for our Ranger lineup, we aim to provide added value to customers as they go about their life’s adventures,” said Turse Zuhair, Head of Sales, Sime Darby Auto ConneXion.

Extended Safety and Coverage
Meanwhile, existing Ford Ranger customers who are on the current 3-year warranty will have the option to purchase two Extended Warranty Plans2 which can be fulfilled at any Ford Authorised Service Centre, namely the PremiumCARE and PowertrainCARE.
The PremiumCARE plan provides a two-year comprehensive coverage on over 1,000 components, while the PowertrainCARE plan provides a two-year extended warranty on the engine, transmission and drivetrain.
The new Ranger lineup in Malaysia consists of nine different variants, including the XL, XLT, new XLT+ Wildtrak, and the much anticipated Ranger Raptor.
The new Ford Ranger offers a choice of three diesel powertrains to deliver greater versatility and to match consumer demands for a wider variety of requirements. These include the new generation 2.0L Single-Turbo and 2.0L Bi-Turbo engines, and the Ranger’s proven Duratorq 2.2L.
Ford’s new generation of diesel engines uses advanced materials and boasts sophisticated construction. Compact, lightweight, powerful and efficient, they feature common-rail direct fuel-injection, an integrated intake manifold, and a belt-in-oil primary drive.
Available on the Ranger Raptor and the Ranger Wildtrak 4×4 is the new-generation 2.0L Bi-Turbo diesel engine, coupled with an advanced 10-speed automatic transmission to bring greater torque, improved flexibility and a quieter, more comfortable drive.
The 2.0L Bi-Turbo takes advantage of sequential turbocharging to deliver greater responsiveness, drivability and maximum efficiency. A pair of turbochargers are employed for maximum performance and efficiency. A variable geometry turbocharger is employed to deliver greater throttle response and eliminate lag by spooling up quickly at low speeds. The second unit is a fixed geometry turbocharger with a high flow capacity to deliver maximum power and performance.
With 500Nm from a low 1750rpm, the Bi-Turbo engine delivers a greater torque spread, with the 10-speed’s close ratios reducing gaps in power and acceleration to make steep, slippery hill-climbs much easier. The Wildtrak model optioned with the new engine maintains Ranger’s equal class-leading payload and 3500kg towing capability.
The Ranger is currently priced between RM92,388 and RM210,888 on the road without insurance.

First in-class Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with Vehicle and Pedestrian Detection designed to detect pedestrians as well as vehicles in front of the truck and alert drivers with an audible warning. If drivers fail to react, the system automatically applies the brakes to help mitigate potential rear-end collisions and road-traffic collisions with pedestrian.
First in-class Forward Collision Warning, which detects a potential collision triggering an audible warning to drivers. The system also automatically pre-charges and increases brake assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when drivers apply the brakes.
First in-class Lane Departure Warning and Assist. The system vibrates the steering wheel to alert drivers when they unintentionally move out of their lane, while Lane Keeping Aid helps steer the vehicle back on track if drivers do not react.
Additional upgrades to the New Ford Ranger Raptor include an additional USB charging port on the rear-view mirror and LED projector headlamps for greater visibility while driving at night.
