Ford Malaysia has launched their new Ford Ranger yesterday. The improvements highlight of this replacement model is the new 2.5L DuraTorq turbodiesel capable of 141bhp @ 3,500rpm and 330Nm at a low 1,800rpm. Better still, Ford claims a 22% improvements in fuel efficency despite higher power and torque! Pioneering a first in the history of pick-ups in Malaysia, is a full 5-speed A/T 'box, with only the 5th cog being an overdrive ratio, unlike the popular Honda saloon cars available locally.
The new 2007 Ford Ranger TDCi is priced at RM88,639 for the 4X4 XLT Auto while the 4X4 XLT Manual is a more affordable RM83,739. Bookings are open in May 2007 and deliveries will begin soon after.
It is the newly-crowned 'King of Pick-Up' - with the highest power output/torque and seemed destined so for some time to come...
(The 172bhp New Nissan Frontier Navara is nowhere to be seen yet...not even on the distant horizon)
