It was first put on displayed at the Thai Motor Expo in November 2008 under the name of Ford Ranger MAX Concept, Malaysians can now get their hands on the Ford Ranger facelift which typically is a CBU import version. The car is being assembled and produced in its Rayong production center. Sold for RM83,888 for the manual version and RM88,888 for the automatic version, the Ranger 2.5 liter Duratorq Turbodiesel engine comes with 143PS and 330Nm torque.

This would otherwise be one of the most affordable and value-for-money vehicles around as the design of the car is now more modern and no longer exude the truck lookalike which is so often associated with Ford 4x4s. You will definitely find the newly designed headlamps, and fender panels to be most enticing.

Standard accessories comes with 2 airbags as well as an MP3 CD changer with auxiliary input for plugging in your iPods and other MP3 players. The interiors of the car is very much something you can easily get used to as they are easily identified and used.

The driving experience of the new Ford Ranger is something that is highly commendable. Using leaf springs for the rear suspension, the drive is comfortable as well as enthralling to say the least and as such, for a cut price of less than RM100,000 this vehicle is quite a buy.
