Toyota, Isuzu, Nissan, and Mazda bakkies taking on the Ford Ranger FX4

The new Ford Ranger FX4 was recently released, becoming a permanent trim-line that is based on the limited-edition Ranger Thunder.

The FX4 has distinctive styling elements that instantly set it apart from the rest of the line-up, and is the first Ford vehicle in the country to come with FordPass Connect.

Every FX4 is fitted with a 2.0-litre, turbocharged diesel engine that generates a healthy 132kW of power and 420Nm of torque.

It is also equipped with a 10-speed automatic transmission and a Progressive Range Select feature that allows the driver to lock out certain gears.

The FX4 range stretches from R618,900 for the entry-level variant to R687,900 for the top-of-the-range model.

All Ranger models come standard with Ford Protect, which offers a 4-year/120,000km warranty, 3-year/unlimited kilometre roadside assistance, and 6-year/90,000km service plan.

The SA market

The South African market is packed with bakkies at all price levels, and the Ranger FX4 faces strong competition from the likes of Toyota, Isuzu, Nissan, and Mazda.
