Sime Darby Auto ConneXion (SDAC), the sole distributor for Ford in Malaysia, recently concluded its “Buy a new Ranger, win a Ranger Raptor” contest by handing over the keys of a Ranger Raptor to the unbelievably lucky winner.

Shahrul Iman bin Sulaiman from Pahang purchased a new Ford Ranger XLT Plus and now has two Rangers, including the desirable Ford Performance truck. “Winning the Ranger Raptor was something unexpected and is definitely the biggest win in my life. Thank you Sime Darby Auto ConneXion and Ford – I can definitely drive home in style this Raya,” he said, clearly understating things.

The “Buy a new Ranger, win a Ranger Raptor” contest ran from October 2018 to January 31 this year in conjunction with the launch of the facelifted Ford Ranger.

The RM199,888 Ranger Raptor is powered by a 2.0 litre EcoBlue bi-turbo diesel with 213 PS and 500 Nm of torque. Power goes to the chunky wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission. The Fox Racing Shox dampers are just like those on the big, bad F-150 Raptor.

The Ranger XLT+ that Shahrul Iman bought is the only variant in the range powered by the 2.0L EcoBlue engine, other than the Raptor. In Si-Turbo single turbo form, it pushes out 180 PS and 420 Nm of torque, paired to a 10-speed auto as well. Click here for specs and pics of the entire 2019 Ford Ranger line-up.
