Well, photos of the vehicle sans disguise may have come about yesterday, but so much for that. The new Ford Ranger has finally broken cover, and is on display at a roadshow in Sunway Pyramid, which runs from today until Sunday. Having been told it was there, yours truly was planning to make a visit to the roadshow tonight or tomorrow morning to grab some pix of the pickup.
Thankfully, there’s no need to wait any further. Diligent reader Rizal M was at the Pyramid this morning, saw the roadshow display and noticed the truck, or trucks in this case. The 3.2 litre variant seen in the earlier post is on show, as is what should be the 2.2 litre XLT manual, presumably so because it’s dressed up as a mobile billboard for the Malaysia Ranger Challenge, which has a manual 2.2 as the winning prize.
More importantly, Rizal snapped a pix of the Ranger product leaflet, in which the estimated pricing for the variants are listed. The 2.2L XLT automatic has an estimated OTR price of RM98,000, while the manual version is expected to be RM92,000. Significantly, there’s also mention of the 3.2L Wildtrak, priced at an estimated RM115,000, so that one looks to be on the cards.
There’s also a shot of what you can expect to find in the T6’s cabin – rain and speed sensing wipers, auto headlamps, cruise control, dual airbags, Bluetooth with Voice Control feature, an integrated control panel, no less than 23 storage spaces dotting the interior and a large lockable glovebox. Supposedly, the compartment is big enough to house a 16-inch laptop, so the brochure goes. The Wildtrak gets dual-zone climate control, as far as can be figured.
Many thanks for taking and sharing the photos, Rizal.
