Ford’s January Sales in Malaysia Fuelled by New Ranger
Ford today announced January retail sales of 792 units in Malaysia driven by the class-defining Ranger pickup truck, which contributed sales of 687 units.
As well as being Malaysia’s most powerful pickup, the Ranger features an unmatched blend of capability – including best-in-class payload and water-wading – and advanced technology.
The Ranger is equipped with a range of active and passive safety features that include up to six airbags and driver assistance technologies like Lane Keeping Aid and Adaptive Cruise Control. Ford’s Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and ISOFIX child safety mounts also come standard, making Ranger the only pickup truck in Malaysia to offer these two important safety features across all variants.
The new Ranger’s safety leadership was recently recognized by the ASEAN New Car Assessment Program (ASEAN NCAP), which awarded a maximum 5-star safety rating, with the highest Adult Occupant Protection (AOP) score of any pickup truck tested.
Ford expects sales to be given a boost over the next few months, as the company plans the Malaysia launch of several new vehicles, including the iconic Mustang, new Focus, all-new Everest SUV, and new S-MAX MPV.
