KUALA LUMPUR: Sime Darby Auto ConneXion (SDAC), the sole distributor for Ford in Malaysia, has lined up a new series of Ford Ranger Getaways off-roading adventures and training sessions for Ranger and Ranger Raptor owners this year.

The first getaway is the Ranger 4x4 Off-Road Course and Water Rafting Thrills experience in Kampung Ulu Slim, Perak, which is happening on 20 April 2024.

Up next is the Sarawak 4x4 Training Academy (Sar4Trac) Beginner 4WD Course in Kampung Barieng, Bau, Sarawak, which takes place on 27 April 2024.

Conquer the off-road, conquer the rapids

The Ranger 4x4 Off-Road Course and Water Rafting Thrills getaway is an adrenaline-fueled rafting adventure along Slim River in Perak.

Adventurers will navigate a beginner-friendly 4x4 off-road course before experiencing the thrill of whitewater rafting along the Slim River.

Open to four people per vehicle, the Ranger 4x4 Off-Road Course and Water Rafting Thrills getaway kicks off with a convoy from Ford Ara Damansara to the rafting starting point in Kampung Ulu Slim.

Along the way, participants will test their basic 4x4 skills on a beginner-friendly off-roading course under the guidance of expert instructors.

Upon arrival at the rafting starting point, participants will embark in groups with local or Orang Asli guides on a two-hour “roller coaster” run along the river.

The eight-km stretch, peppered with fun class two rapids and one huge class three rapid, is a great introduction to whitewater rafting.

The rafting trail also includes a scenic pit stop at Lobok Kotak where participants can enjoy a refreshing swim.

Master basic 4x4 skills for more off-roading adventures

The Sar4Trac Beginner 4WD Course is open to two people per vehicle.

Participants will first attend a briefing on safety, the basics of 4x4 driving and the obstacle courses that they will be tackling.

Under the close guidance of instructors, participants will then put into practice the basic techniques for navigating the obstacles in a hands-on session.

These obstacles include Dirt Track, Frame Twister, Mud & Gravel, Rutted Track, Ditch, Hill Ascent, Hill Descent and Water Wading.
