Ford says this Ford Ranger Max concept truck that’s being exhibited at the 2008 Thailand International Motor Expo explores future design possibilities for the Ranger, and the underlying meaning could actually be to look forward to a facelifted Ford Ranger that looks like this, which is actually less truck-ish and more Hilux-ish.
Apparently the design theme here is a power tool, think power drills, saws, the whole works. These tools usually have little lettering to label each button and dial and so does this concept. Even the grab handle in the side of the sportsbar has the lettering GRAB on it. The side door is labelled AXCESS, and the fuel inlet is labeled FUEL.
The bed is covered by a remote-controlled powered tonneau cover to protect and hide your cargo. Those large wheels are 18 inchers and have a deep-dish design and are wrapped with 285/60R18 tyres.
