Ford’s Troller T4 Off-Roader Refreshed For 2020, Remains A Brazil-Only Affair

Ford continues to improve its rugged Troller T4 off-roader in Brazil, with the automaker applying new updates to the 2020 model.

The improvements are only aesthetic, as the Troller T4 introduces new combinations of exterior and interior colors, as well as new wheels. On the outside, the Ranger-based off-roader gains a new Dark London Gray highlight color which is applied to the front grille, bumpers, fender trim pieces, mirror caps, roof (including the spoiler), and trunk lid.

The new highlight color provides a striking contrast to the six available body colors, especially the solid Dakar Yellow shown in these photos. The other paints in the catalog are solid Arizona Red and Diamond White, metallic Silver Frost, as well as pearl-effect Maragogi Green and Moscow Gray. Further contrast is provided by the 17-inch alloy wheels painted Ebony Black.

The Dark London Gray accent color finds its way into the cabin as well and is featured on the dashboard, center console, side armrests, and loudspeaker frames. Standard equipment includes dual-zone air conditioning, JBL Harman Smart CarDrive multimedia system with 6.75-inch screen and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, power windows and mirrors, trip computer, alarm, split rear seats, and a waterproof interior, among other things.

Nothing changes under the skin as the Troller T4 continues to be built on a tubular metal frame, featuring a fiberglass composite bodywork. Power comes from the same 3.2-liter Duratorq five-cylinder turbo diesel rated at 200 PS (197 HP) and 470 Nm (347 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission connected to a 4×4 system that offers 4×2, 4×4 Low, and 4×4 High modes — the latter only up to a speed of 120 km/h (75 mph).

As a serious off-roading machine, the T4 also packs a self-locking rear differential with Trac-Lock system, mixed-use tires, integrated crankcase and sidewall protector, double-glazed sunroof, a snorkel intake, and sealed LED taillights, among other things.

Prices for the 2020 Troller T4 start at 140,900 Brazilian Real, which is about $34,130 in U.S. currency. Too bad this rugged SUV is not available outside Brazil.

    but why does the Troller still exist with the Bronco “being built on the same chassis with similar function” is knocking on the front door?

    • Matteo Tommasi

      Because the bronco will cost 3 times this plastic toy.

      • Vinicius Gomes Sentinela

        In fact it is made of SMC fiberglass, a worldwide award-winning material that is stiffer than steel. You can literally walk on the hood that it doesn’t crumple.

    • Zandit75

      I’m not 100% sure, but I was under the impression this is built on the Old Ranger platform, not the new version.
      This is smaller than the upcoming Bronco I believe.

      • Matheus Quintino Pera

        No, it uses new Ranger platform, the same pickup produced in Argentina since some years ago.

    • Vinicius Gomes Sentinela

      Troller was a Brazilian special car Brand, so, it’s more “Premium” than Ford products in Brazil.

  • Thunderbolt

    Ford could have just brought this suv over to the states and call it a Bronco, why go through the trouble and expense developing another car.

    • Nowan

      because they afraid of the failure of ecosport ?

      • Benjamin B.

        Troller is not up to American and European standards.

      • Benjamin B.

        Interestingly Ford continues to use the old, Turkish-built 3.2L diesel. The Ranger and Ranger Raptor use the new 2.0L EcoBlue engine. Troller is obviously designed mostly to be a cheap and capable off-roader.

  • XXXTENXIN

    Ford should bring this over here in the states and compete with overpriced Wranglers.

  • Matheus Quintino Pera

    Maybe someone that doesn’t live in Brazil doesn’t understand the Troller’s position. This brand was created in the state of Ceará. In middle of 90s, they developed a cheap vehicle to use in dune, taking parts of different automakers. Ford bought Troller in 2007 and keep their handracfted production. But the laws changed and turned airbags mandatory. So Ford take the new Ranger platform and developed this T4, that is sold here since 2014.

    T4’s proposal is off-road only. You may use it in a trip, but it’s not comfortable, specially in the rear. I’m not tall at all and suffered in a 100 km (62 miles) trip on my brother-in-law’s T4. But for whom is looking for fun out of the city, it’s a nice car.
