Ford Ranger 3.2 Wildtrak  004

Ford Malaysia has announced its retail sales figures in the country for the month of March 2016, which grew 24% from the previous month to 650 units. In February, the company managed to shift 524 units.

The sales performance was largely contributed to by the Ranger. While 432 units of the pick-up truck were sold in February, the month of March saw a 19% increase to 513 units. Even discounting the Ranger, Ford’s sales of the rest of the line-up rose from 92 units in February to 137.

“As the most capable, most powerful and smartest truck in the market today, the Ranger stays true to our Built Ford Tough heritage, and we’re pleased that demand continues to grow across both Peninsula and East Malaysia,” said David Westerman, managing director, Malaysia and Asia Pacific Emerging Markets, Ford Motor Company.

As for the remaining units sold in March, they are represented by the other models in the line-up, including the recently-introduced Focus facelift with its 1.5 litre EcoBoost engine. We already had a go in the C-segment model, where we praised the car’s revised dynamics and easy-to-use assisted parking features.
