This Autumn, Ford proudly presents the Ford FX4, a boastful beast that comes with all the bells and whistles.
Bold red ‘FX4” decals located at the base of the front doors, embossed “FX4” logos on the front seat, along with a 3D “FX4” badge on the tailgate shows that this beast has little room for humility, but has all the specs to prove its prowess. Keyless Passive Entry and Passive Start, including dual-zone automatic climate control, a rear-view parking camera, front and back sensors, would be our usual bragging points but the Fx4 is so much more.
SYNC3 with voice activation, an eight-inch touch-screen colour display, two USB ports and Bluetooth, Apple car play and android auto to facilitate numerous smartphone functions such as google maps and Waze. But this comes standard and the FX4 has so much more.
The FX4 signals the introduction of groundbreaking technology, Ford Pass Connect and the Ford Pass app. The app allows customers to gain command and control over various vehicle functions including locking and unlocking doors, engine start, activating the climate control system, finding the vehicles location and even access to the vehicle’s fuel level and oil life, all this at the customer’s fingertips.
Once the app is paired with the Ranger, the customer will be able to schedule maintenance and service bookings, locate ford dealerships nationwide, keep track of past and future services and view the vehicles warranty information. In addition, the FordPass app enables direct access to Fords Roadside assistance service, just to emphasise that your convenience is our priority. Since we believe in spoiling our customers, FordPass connect will be available in all Ranger models produced from 2017 onwards.
The FX4 comes with additional active safety features such as Hill Launch Assist, Roll-over Mitigation, adaptive load control, Trailer Sway Control, Electronic Stability Programme with traction control and emergency brake assist because with the FX4 there is always so much more.
