Global Ford Ranger Challenge – deadline extended

Ford Malaysia has announced that the deadline for submission of ideas to the Malaysian leg of the Global Ford Ranger Challenge has been extended to April 15, due to overwhelming response.

In case you aren’t already aware of it, the idea is to suggest a tough challenge for the new T6 Ford Ranger, and explaining why that unique challenge is the best way to test the new truck’s capabilities.

Five finalists will be selected to get behind the wheel of a Ranger to turn their tough challenge into reality – a new Ranger will 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 of each participant’s challenge will then be uploaded on the Global Ford Ranger Challenge website for the general public to view and vote for. The neat news is that the one with the best challenge, as chosen by the general public, will drive away with his/her very own Ranger XLT 2.2L (manual transmission).

Thus far, some of the ultimate challenge ideas submitted by Malaysian drivers include a demanding 13-hour off-road drive from Kuching to Long Seridan in Sarawak, a peacock bass fishing trip to Tanjung Tualang in Perak and a traversing expedition over the ever-challenging terrain at Kuala Mu.

So, still time to submit your ideas for the challenge online, which you can do so here.
