The Malaysian leg of the Global Ranger Challenge has officially kicked off, giving us Malaysians a chance to put the famous “Built Ford Tough” claim to the ultimate test by taking the new Ranger through tough, real-life challenges.

Submit your ideas for the challenge at the Malaysia Ranger Challenge website, and five lucky entrants will be selected to get behind the wheel to turn their idea into reality.

Not only will these five be the first consumers in Malaysia to test the Ranger T6, the one with the best challenge (as chosen by the public) will drive away with his/her very own new Ranger XLT 2.2L Manual!

Examples of challenges might be testing if it’s comfy enough to camp in it for 48 hours straight, or show what you would tow with it’s towing capacity of over 3 tonnes, or even testing its horsepower and torque by taking it off-road. Be creative about it – you can check out the Global Ranger Challenge of other countries such as Australia or South Africa to get some inspiration.

Entries can be submitted to Submit your idea in the form of a short story of 200 words or less, or a recorded video. A new Ranger will then be loaned to each of the five finalists, who will carry out their nominated challenge with the help of a professional film crew provided by Ford. Footage will be uploaded to the Global Ford Ranger Challenge website for the public to view and vote.

The winner of the truck will be announced at the launch event of the new Ranger in Malaysia. Additionally, people who vote online will be entered into a lucky draw for a range of prizes. Online voting will happen throughout the month of May.
