  • This base Ranger variant also offers full connectivity with a large class-leading 10.1-inch touchscreen and Ford’s SYNC® 4A infotainment system.
  • Priced at RM98,888 with a five-year manufacturer’s warranty and the option of an extended warranty of up to seven years and an extended service package.
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, 1 November 2022 – Sime Darby Auto ConneXion (SDAC), the sole distributor for Ford in Malaysia, has expanded its next-generation Ranger line-up with the addition of a 2.0-litre XL 4x4 Single Cab Manual variant offering a durable, reliable and trusted work partner for customers in the country.

Priced at RM98,888 (on-the-road, without insurance and road tax, for Peninsular Malaysia) and RM104,388 (on-the-road, without insurance and road tax, for East Malaysia), the next-gen Ranger XL Single Cab is powered by Ford’s proven 2.0-litre Single-Turbo diesel engine to deliver 170 PS at 3,500 rpm and peak torque of 405 Nm at 1,750-2,500 rpm. The powertrain is paired with a new six-speed manual transmission that was four years in development and features a new gear set for smoother shifts.

“While customers are increasingly choosing the Ranger for lifestyle reasons, we are mindful that there is a significant segment procuring it solely for its utilitarian purpose as a tough workhorse. With the addition of this XL Single Cab to our next-generation Ranger line-up, customers have a basic entry-level pickup that they can trust to get the job done and done well,” said Turse Zuhair, Managing Director, Sime Darby Auto ConneXion-Ford.

Built to do more

As with the entire next-generation Ranger line-up, the new XL Single Cab also benefits from the 50mm track and wheelbase increase, which offers improved stability on and off-road as well as wider front approach and rear departure angles.

More importantly, with the enhanced dimensions, the next-gen Ranger XL Single Cab offers the largest single cargo bed on a pickup in the market. Measuring in at 2,332 mm in length, 1,420 mm in width and 540 mm in height so customers can carry more cargo and load flat larger items such as a sheet of building plywood or a full-size pallet. Ground clearance is also higher at 230 mm.

There are also six cargo tie-down hooks on strong steel tube rails that provide convenient points for securing loads.

For more versatility at remote work sites, the tailgate can also double up as a mobile workbench with an integrated ruler and clamp pockets to measure, grip and cut building materials.

Connected, practical and functional

Despite being a base variant, the next-generation Ranger XL Single Cab also comes standard with a high-level of integrated technology that is comparable to the rest of its higher-priced siblings.

At the heart of this connective experience is the huge first-in-class 10.1-inch touchscreen and Ford’s voice-activated SYNC® 4A communications and entertainment system with Wireless Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.

A reconfigurable eight-inch colour digital instrument panel replaces the analogue system, allowing more information to the presented to the driver.

Other equipment highlights and safety features include two USB ports, one 12-volt power socket, two airbags, an anti-lock braking system with electronic brake-force distribution, electronic stability control with traction control, hill descent control, hill launch assist, rollover mitigation, and trailer sway control.

On the outside, the next-generation Ranger XL Single Cab is down-to-earth with 16-inch alloy wheels, a standard black front grille, body-coloured front bumper and black back bumpers, halogen headlamps, rear fog lamps, a front recovery hook, daytime running lights and an LED tailgate-mounted stop lamp.

Exterior colour options for the next-gen Ranger XL Single Cab include Absolute Black, Aluminium Metallic, Arctic White and Meteor Grey.

The next-generation Ranger XL Single Cab comes with a five-year manufacturer’s warranty or 160,000km, whichever comes first. Customers can also choose an extended warranty of up to seven years for more peace of mind, as well as opt for an extended service package, through which they can make upfront payments for scheduled services for up to five years. A key benefit is cost savings as they can lock-in the current price amidst rising costs and build the payments into their loan.

Customers who purchase the next-gen Ranger XL Single Cab will also automatically be part of the Ford Inner Circle in Malaysia – a community of like-minded individuals who enjoy pushing boundaries and exploring new horizons, contributing back to society or going for excursions like the Ford Ranger Getaways with friends and family.
