KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, 10 November 2022 – Sime Darby Auto ConneXion (SDAC), the sole distributor for Ford in Malaysia, last week clinched the Best 4x4 Lifestyle Pick-up Truck award for its next-generation Ranger WildTrak at the CarSifu Editors’ Choice Awards 2022.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, 23 August 2023 – Ford Ranger or Ranger Raptor owners looking to gain new 4x4 driving skills and discover the true potential of their capable vehicles can sign up for two upcoming Ford Ranger Getaways training experiences

The first training session will be held at the M4TREC Beginner 4WD Course in Semenyih, Selangor on 26 August 2023. The next session will be conducted at the Sar4Trac Beginner 4WD Course in Kampung Barieng, Bau, Sarawak on 16 September 2023.

Ideal for owners new to 4x4 driving who are eager to start their off-roading adventures, the beginner-level 4WD courses aim to provide participants with the necessary knowledge and basic techniques of safe off-roading. These sessions are part of this year’s Ford Ranger Getaways – a first and only in-segment adventure-based e-commerce platform created to offer customers enhanced ownership experiences.

Both the M4TREC and Sar4Trac centres are purpose-built facilities designed to offer a safe and controlled environment for learning and experiencing the basic techniques of off-road driving. Courses will be conducted by the centres’ teams of HRDF-certified professional instructors who are also expert off-roaders.

Participants will also gain in-depth familiarity with their vehicle to uncover the full capabilities of their Rangers and Ranger Raptors while networking with other owners and like-minded individuals. They are also welcome to bring along a companion.

“We are committed to helping customers unlock the true potential of their Rangers and Raptors so they can live their life to the fullest. Both these Beginner 4WD Courses are excellent opportunities for owners, especially Next-Gen customers, to learn the skills needed to pilot their vehicle safely and confidently in different types of terrain,” said Turse Zuhair, Managing Director, Sime Darby Auto ConneXion-Ford.

A good foundation for more off-roading adventures

Both training sessions will begin with an in-depth briefing on safety, the basics of 4x4 driving and the obstacle courses.

Under the close guidance and supervision of the instructors, participants will then put to practice the basic techniques for tackling various obstacles in the hands-on session.

At M4TREC, obstacles include Dirt Track, Roller Ramp, Frame Twister, Ridge Crossing / Slide Slope, Mud & Ruts, Rutted Track, Ditch, Hill Descend, Hill Ascend and Mud Dash.

Participants at Sar4Trac will tackle obstacles at the Ngirobuh banana plantation, which include Dirt Track, Frame Twister, Mud & Gravel, Rutted Track, Ditch, Hill Ascent, Hill Descent and Water Wading.

All participants will receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the training session.

The courses are priced at RM498 per person, with a maximum of two participants per vehicle. Next-Generation Ranger and Ranger Raptor owners who have not utilised their Inner Circle privilege card code can redeem their 30 percent discount on this training experience. Early bird owners of the Next-Gen Ranger Raptor 2.0L Bi-Turbo Diesel are encouraged to redeem their Getaways discount before it expires in June 2024.

Bookings and payments for both courses can be completed on the Ford Ranger Getaways platform via the SDAC-Ford Malaysia website.

An all-round training experience

“I am very satisfied with the training we received. The instructors were excellent and I learned a lot, especially about driving safely in off-road conditions. Today, I realised I can do much more with the vehicle as it is more capable than anyone can imagine. I strongly encourage other owners to join this course if they have the chance,” said a Next-Gen Ranger Raptor owner who participated in the M4TREC Beginner 4WD Course in March.

“Thank you SDAC and Ford, for organising this M4TREC Beginner 4WD Course. One can gain a lot of techniques and knowledge, as well as the proper way of handling your car off-road. The best thing is you get to know your car better, not just about its capability but also understanding the interaction between the driver and the car,” said another proud owner of a Next-Gen Ranger Raptor.
