Ford Australia has confirmed pricing for its special-edition Ranger FX4, with the blacked-out 4x4 dual-cab pick-up “initially” limited to 1000 units and available in three variants.
Attracting a $2500 premium over the full-time XLT grade it is based upon, the FX4 can be had with a 147kW/470Nm 3.2-litre turbo-diesel five-cylinder engine, either with a six-speed manual ($59,140 plus on-road costs) or a six-speed torque-converter automatic ($61,340).
Alternatively, buyers can opt for a 157kW/500Nm 2.0-litre twin-turbo four-cylinder diesel engine, which is exclusively mated to a 10-speed torque-converter automatic ($62,840).
As reported, the FX4 is fitted with a fresh set of 18-inch alloy wheels, a unique mesh grille insert and an extended sports bar, all of which are finished in black. It also adds a black decal package with red ‘FX4’ branding.
Inside, black leather seat upholstery, red stitching and Tinted Graphite trim help the FX4 standout in the Ranger crowd.
There's no mistaking the FX4 for a garden-variety Ranger thanks to its prominent red branding.
