It has also rolled out a new promotion offering four free vehicle service and cash rebate options for selected Ranger vehicles until Dec 31.
The upgraded Ranger XLT Plus now costs RM5,000 more and comes with enhanced features similar to the Ranger WildTrak and Raptor – new high-performance bi-LED headlamps that deliver 17% greater lighting penetration for better visibility while driving at night.
Its new body-coloured bumper design finished with a silver bumper lip replicates the front exterior of the Ranger WildTrak.
It also comes with a new exclusive chrome grille and uses a 2.0-litre Single-Turbo engine capable of delivering 180PS and 420Nm of torque that is mated to a first and only in-class 10-speed automatic transmission.
The Ranger XLT Plus upgrade also comes with convenient features such as keyless entry with push-start-button and the first-in-class Easy Lift Tailgate to make lifting and lowering the tailgate effortless.
It also features an eight-inch touchscreen display, SYNC multimedia system with reversing camera, electronic shift-on-the-fly 4x4, rain-sensing wipers, the light and nimble Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS), daytime running lights and headlights for better visibility.
Other equipment include two airbags, Limited Slip Differential, Hill Descent Control, Hill Launch Assist, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) and Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), ISOFIX child seat mounts, Electronic Stability Control with Traction Control, Rollover Mitigation, Trailer Sway Control, Adaptive Load Control and Ford MyKey.
Colours are Aluminium Metallic, Arctic White, Lightning Blue, Meteor Grey and Absolute Black.
As with the entire Ranger line-up, the Ranger XLT Plus upgrade gets a full manufacturer’s warranty of three years or up to 100,000km, whichever comes first.
Aimed at offering customers more savings and a lower cost of ownership, customers who buy selected Ranger Raptor, WildTrak and XLT Plus variants will have the option of four free vehicle service that is equivalent to a two-year free maintenance or up to 40,000km, whichever comes first or a RM2,000 cash rebate.
For selected Ranger XL variants, customers can enjoy up to RM7,000 cash rebate, while a RM7,000 cash rebate will be offered on selected Ranger XLT variants.
“We are pleased to announce greater saving options for our customers, with the choice of enjoying four free vehicle service or cash rebate options on our Ranger vehicles. With these saving options, we hope this would allow customers more flexibility in their spending,” said Sime Darby Auto ConneXion managing director Syed Ahmad Muzri Syed Faiz.
