The two-in-one off-road course on 18 June begins at Ford Juru, Penang, where participants will gather with other Ranger owners and their companions who similarly crave adventure.
Participants will then head on to Jeti Batu Musang where they will have the chance to test the limits of their Rangers across various on- and off-road courses, under the guidance of a professional driving instructor. These include water wading, jungle track driving, light rock climbing and more.
After the 4×4 experience, participants will then head on to Balik Pulau, a well-known spot for durians, to the Green Acres Orchard, which will be booked exclusively for this getaway.

The getaway is priced at RM976 per Ranger for a recommended maximum of 4 persons per vehicle.

An experience beyond expectation
Based on feedback from customers who attended the Ranger/Raptor Training in Sepang, the experience was more than what they had expected, especially in terms of getting acquainted with what their vehicle was capable of.
Even though the event was in Sepang, some out-of-state customers travelled all the way from Ipoh, Kuantan and Johor Bahru to participate in the training.
Designed to provide an interactive and enriching platform for Ranger and Ranger Raptor owners to realise the full limits of their lifestyle and performance pickups with like-minded individuals, the one-of-a-kind training experience offers an intensive one-day guided session with trained instructors. Modules covered include a series of tarmac and off-road driving scenarios at the Sepang International Circuit and within the district of Sepang.
