We are so thrilled to announce that the new Ranger FX4 has arrived at CMH Ford Gezina! It has been an exciting past year with Ford and the Ranger family grew significantly in the past few months with the introduction of the Ranger Thunder (based on the WIldtrak) and the Ranger XL Sport. I’m sure you are aware of how unique, eye-catching and kitted-out the new Ranger members are, and let me tell you, the Ranger FX4 are also here to turn some heads and to stand out from the crowd.
The FX4 slots in just below the Thunder and Wildtrak models and just above the Ranger XLT on which it is based. It is exclusively available with the 2.0L Single Turbo powertrain mated with a ten-speed automatic transmission and in Double Cab only with the choice of 4×2 or 4×4.
It has a unique identity with a new Ebony Black mesh grille, an extended sports bar with matching Ebony Black exterior mirrors, door handles and tailgate handle. Some other exterior features include new 18-inch black alloy wheels, darkened LED headlamps, FX4 side decals and a 3D badge on the tailgate which gives this truck a bold and tough look, ready to hit the road or some heavy 4×4 trails.
The FX4 interior features include a leather soft topper on the dash with red stitching, new partial leather seats with FX4 logos and red stitching, a mirror mounted USB port to make every dash cam user’s life easier to power it without messy cables (you’re welcome), and lastly a drop-in bedliner with a power socket at the back.
Buyers can choose from five colours:
- Frozen White
- Sea Grey
- Race Red
- Agate Black Metallic
- Moondust Silver
Introducing the FordPass – The app for Ford owners
Ford Ranger FX4 customers will be part of the first group to have access to an enhanced ownership experience with the introduction of the FordPass Connect app. Unlock a new world of services conveniently available in the palm of your hand and experience a new way of communicating with your Ford. Using an implanted modem in the vehicle, a whole range of features are enabled on the owner’s smartphone. New Ranger XL, XLS, XLT, Wildtrak and Ranger Raptor models produced from February 2021 will also be able to connect and enjoy all the features of the new innovative app and smart mobility.
FordPass connected vehicle features:
- Use your phone to start your vehicle remotely
- Schedule a remote start any day, any time
- Remotely lock or unlock the doors from virtually anywhere
- Vehicle locator
- Vehicle status allows you to check vitals such as fuel level, tire pressure and mileage even when you’re not behind the wheel
- Receive vehicle health alerts directly to your smartphone
The FordPass app is also compatible with Ranger models produced from 2017, providing selected vehicle, warranty and maintenance information, as well as the available search functions for dealers, fuel stations and parking. However, without the FordPass Connect modem, none of the location, command or control functions is available.
