Sime Darby Auto Connexion (SDAC) has released a new price list for Ford vehicles that will come into effect from June 1, when the goods and services tax (GST) will be rolled back to 0% from the current 6%. The effective removal of GST was announced by the new Pakatan Harapan government last week, fulfilling a major campaign promise.

These new prices – which are on-the-road excluding insurance – will remain in effect until the sales and services tax (SST) comes back in to replace GST. The latest is that it will happen “in two, three months” time according to Tun Daim Zainuddin of the government’s Council of Eminent Persons. That’s a fairly large tax-free window of opportunity, should you want to take full advantage.

Without GST, savings range from RM4,677 for the Ranger XL Standard to RM33,261 for the Mustang GT. There may be slight variations in the percentage of reduction, which is typically slightly less than 6% flat. This is because 6% GST is only applied on the selling price of a car (and in the case of CBU models, a Puspakom inspection fee), before GST-free registration essentials such as road tax, registration fee and ownership endorsement fee are added on.

In addition to the removal of GST, SDAC is having some eye-catching 10th anniversary promotions. How about buy one free one? Yes, but you’ll have to buy a Mustang to get a Fiesta 1.5L Sport for free. Limited units of the S-Max MPV are on offer at “celebratory prices” starting from RM147,000. Also, those who purchase any Ranger Wildtrak variant will receive free service and maintenance for two years or 40,000 km.

All Ranger buyers stand to win prizes including a Fiesta 1.5L Sport and 15 units of Huawei Mate 10 Pro smartphones. Winners will be picked via a monthly lucky draw, with five phones to won each month. With the first draw completed, there are still ten phones to be won. The grand prize winner will be announced after the final draw in June.

There’s more. SDAC’s “Raya Joy & Enjoy” promotion will run from June 1-13, offering one daily prize (electronic goods, smartphone or gadget) for 13 days, valid for registrations (not bookings) within the promo period.
