Following the massive success of the Ranger model in the United States and Australia, the North American based carmaker has also decided to release a special variant of the famous model in the Land Down Under, called the Ranger FX4 limited edition.
We are looking here at two variants with prices to be revealed as well – 2017 Ranger XLT FX4 dual-cab, with manual transmission (AUD 58,915), as well as the 2017 Ranger XLT FX4 dual-cab, with automatic transmission (AUD 61,115). Each one comes with its own goodies and features.
Amongst the plethora of standout features, we should mention the gorgeous dark theme on the utes` body, adding as well a number of trimmings.
Besides the new body wrap trims, both models come with the distinguishable ”FX4” badges, and four colours – Frozen White, Magnetic, Shadow Black and Ingot Silver.
Other features also include black roof rails, black bonnet and tailgate decals, black bonnet, black sports bar, rear bumper, black front grille, side steps and door handles, and other more ….black. The entire styling is complemented with the 18-inch Start Krey alloys.
The cabin still comes with rather the same features as the ongoing model, yet adding the FX4 badge on the leather seats, front and rear carpet mats and so on.
Stepping under the hood, the all-new 2017 Ford Ranger FX4 is equipped with a 3.2-liter turbo-diesel five-cylinder engine, churning out a good 147 kW and 470 Nm of torque. The engine is hooked to a six-speed automatic, allowing the model to burn out a mixed fuel-consumption of 8.7L/100 km.
