Ford PH Launches Ranger FX4 MAX for Just P 1.698M (w/ Specs)

Ford Philippines is blurring the lines between the Ranger and Ranger Raptor with the market introduction of the first-ever Ranger FX4 MAX. This straight-from-the-showroom Ranger variant carries a strong aftermarket appeal giving it increased off-road capability; at a price that’s a steal.

Now available at all Ford dealerships nationwide, the 2021 Ranger FX4 MAX is priced at P 1.698 million, more affordable than either the Ranger Raptor (P 1.998 million), and surprisingly, even the Ranger Wildtrak (P 1.728 million).

“The Ranger FX4 MAX is definitely a strong addition to our growing Ranger portfolio and further boosts the off-road capabilities of our trucks,” says PK Umashankar, president and managing director, Ford Philippines. “It is the perfect pickup for customers who seek adventures as it is equipped with features that offer confidence and convenience in taking on the roads less traveled.”

Staring with a “regular” Ranger, the Ranger FX4 MAX dons new 2-inch monotube Fox shock absorbers in both front and rear. The rear has a remote reservoir, and together with its leaf springs offer rapid recovery even from extensive and prolonged off-road use. Complementing these changes are 17-inch alloy wheels with BF Goodrich 265/70R17 all-terrain tires.

Outside, the Ranger FX4 MAX features a grille that spells out, “F-O-R-D,” along with full-length tubular sports bar, and body-mounted metal hoop side step boards with a non-slip finish. Inside, it has leather seats, carbon fiber accents with Miko suede inserts, sport pedals, and Black Alley inserts on the door trims and dashboard. All weather floor mats cap off the changes.

For convenience and connectivity, the Ranger FX4 MAX features an 8-inch color touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, Smart Keyless Entry with Push Button Start, SYNC 3 with Voice-Activated controls, Bluetooth with Phone/Audio streaming, two USB ports, and six speakers.

Unique to the FX4 MAX is the auxiliary switch pack. This feature gives FX4 MAX owners the ability to easily connect and operate auxiliary accessories and equipment in a seamless and integrated solution. To support such additions, the FX4 MAX features a specific 250A alternator to support power supply to multiple accessories and reduce reliance on the vehicle’s battery.

Just like the Ranger Wildtrak and Ranger Raptor, the FX4 MAX is powered by a 2.0-liter bi-turbo diesel engine with 213 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque This is mated to a 10-speed automatic with cruise control. Payload is set at 981 kilograms, while towing is at 3,500 kilograms.

The Ranger FX4 MAX also carries a full suite of active and passive safety features such as dual SRS airbags, ABS with EBD, stability control with hill launch assist, hill descent control, and rollover mitigation, and rear parking sensors.

The Ranger FX4 MAX comes in six colors, including Arctic White, Absolute Black, Aluminum Metallic, Meteor Grey, Blue Lightning, and True Red for a price of P 1.698 million.
