Pretoria – Ford South Africa bolsters its local bakkie line-up with the addition of its new Fx4 limited edition.

The Fx4 badge is derived from the all-conquering F-Series pick-ups in the US. The Ranger Fx4 is based on the 3.2-litre XLT Double Cab 4x4, and introduces a host of styling enhancements.

The Ranger Fx4 incorporates a number of distinctive styling changes, including attractive black finishes for the radiator, foglight bezels, side-mirrors, roof rails, as well as the door and tailgate handles.

Design tweaks

Its 17" alloy wheels are supplied in a black finish. The same colour is adopted for the side steps, rear bumper and special Fx4 tubular sports bar located in the load bay – the latter protected by a fitted bedliner. To round off the design, unique Fx4 decals are applied on the sides and rear tailgate.

The Ranger Fx4 is exclusively available in four colour choices; white, silver, grey and black. The limited-edition Ranger Fx4 is only available on 4x4 derivatives. It can be ordered with the six-speed manual or automatic transmission options.

The Fx4 features the latest-generation SYNC3 with satnav accessible via a 8" touchscreen and a wide range of voice commands.
