Ford Sime Darby Auto ConneXion introduces the 2021 Ford Ranger Raptor X Special Edition
Red must be the new black, which is why Ford Malaysia has unveiled the new 2021 Ford Ranger Raptor X Special Edition, a true red colour Ranger Raptor, exclusively for Malaysian customers- making it the first Red Raptor to be introduced in the market.
Priced at RM216,888 OTR without insurance, the Ranger Raptor X Special Edition not only comes with a new striking paint job but has also been equipped with enhanced convenience and safety features, namely the in-built 360-degree camera, Dual Digital Video Recorder, and distinctive accessories comprising of a bold Raptor X decal and Special Edition carpet mats.
According to Sime Darby Auto ConneXion head of sales, Turse Zuhair, "With its Ford Performance DNA, Ranger Raptor is undoubtedly the ultimate and only performance pickup truck in Malaysia that has been perfected for everyday urban use in addition to commanding the harshest off-road terrains at thrilling speeds. With this Special Edition, we hope to inject excitement into our lineup of well-loved Ranger vehicles".
The 360-degree camera, which combines several video cameras to provide real-time full coverage of the area surrounding the mighty truck, seems like a welcoming feature as drivers can now get a better view of their surroundings, let it be it in the urban setting or rugged off-road terrain.
Following the vehicle equipment list trend, the special edition Raptor also features a dual-channel Kenwood Digital Video Recorder that records in quad high-definition (HD) with wide-angle viewing, night view recording, a built-in polarised filter and Mobile App connect via hotspot. The cameras are compatible with both Apple iOS and Android and come with a 32GB memory card, allowing drivers to record their adventure on and off the road.
Performance figures are the same as the regular Ranger Raptor, delivering 213 PS of power and 500Nm of torque from a 2.0L twin-turbodiesel mated to Ford's latest 10-speed automatic transmission with PaddleShift technology.
Also similar to the regular Ranger Raptor is the first-in-class autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system with vehicle and pedestrian detection, forward collision warning and lane departure warning and assist.
The New Ford Ranger Raptor X Special Edition comes with Ford Malaysia's new 5-year manufacturer's warranty or 160,000km (whichever comes first).
