Ford Ranger FX4 Special Edition Presented As An Aussie Affair

The FX4 moniker applied to the Ford Ranger has different market-specific meanings. In the U.S., it’s an optional Off-Road package that makes the pickup truck more capable on challenging terrains, whereas in Australia, it’s actually a special edition of the vehicle.

Announced for the 2020MY, the FX4 is based on the Ranger XLT dual-cab 4×4 and sits between the XLT 4×4 and Wildtrak 4×4. The first units will arrive at dealers in December, but you may want to hurry up and place a deposit if you dig the spec, as it “will initially be limited to around 1,000 units”, according to the automaker.

The things that make the Ranger FX4 special are the Ebony Black grille, side mirror casings, door and tailgate handles and fender features, blacked-out bi-LED headlights, 3D effect FX4 decals, black-finished extended sports bar and 18-inch alloy wheels with a special pattern.

Specific front sports seats are found in the cabin, along with leather accents, contrast stitching and embossed FX4 logos. The Tinted Graphite accents on the doors and instrument panel, premium soft-touch instrument panel top, distinctive FX4 floor mats and other features round up the list of changes inside. Additionally, the Ranger FX4 also gets the SYNC3 infotainment system as standard, featuring Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and voice-activated satellite navigation, digital instrumentation and reversing camera, alongside a host of safety systems.

Customers will be able to choose between two engines: the 157 kW (213 PS / 210 hp) 2.0-liter and 147 kW (200 PS / 197 hp) 3.2-liter diesels, with the former getting a 10-speed auto ‘box and the latter a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. The towing capacity in both versions is 3,500 kg (7,716 lbs).

    Great looking device! Luv it! Now, if they can just offer it with a PROPER MOTOR I’d be a buyer – but definitely NOT until then.
