2021 Ford Ranger FX4 Max Debuts In PH, Starts At P1.698M

The Ford Ranger FX4 Max is the 14th addition to the Ranger lineup and it has a starting price of P1,698,000.

With already a total of 13 variants to choose from, you might think that Ford has filled every niche possible for its popular Ranger pickup. Surprisingly, the American automaker thinks there’s room for another variant that blends the off-road capability of the Ranger Raptor and the utility of other Ranger variants thanks to retaining the rear leaf spring suspension meant for heavy loads. Enter the Ford Ranger FX4 Max.

“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.”

One of the main highlights of the Ford Ranger FX4 Max is its new 2.0-inch monotube Fox shock absorbers. The rear suspension has a remote reservoir and leaf springs, enabling rapid recovery from extensive and prolonged off-road use. These are teamed with tuned coil-springs at the front. The leaf springs have been modified to provide greater compliance off road, while balancing payload and towing capability. 

Complementing the FX4 Max’s suspension are 17-inch alloy wheels with BFGoodrich all-terrain tires that provide outstanding traction on unsealed surfaces and feature tougher sidewalls.

As for its exterior design, the Ford Ranger FX4 Max separates itself from other Ranger variants with its F-O-R-D grille and a full-length tubular sports bar finished in matte black that allows easy access to the load box. Body-mounted metal hoop side steps with a non-slip finish toughen up the look of the FX4 Max.

On the inside, the FX4 MAX offers a rugged yet comfortable vibe. The leather seats feature materials new to the Ranger, including carbon-accents with Miko suede inserts and FX4 Max embroidery. The FX4 Max also comes with all-weather front and rear floor mats for easy cleaning. The driver’s feet are also treated to sports pedals, while Black Alley inserts are featured on the steering wheel, door trims and dash applique for greater contrast. The Ford Ranger FX4 Max also features passive entry with push-button start, 6-speakers and an 8-inch color touchscreen with Ford’s SYNC3 user interface, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.

Unique to the FX4 Max is the auxiliary switch pack. Fitted on Ford trucks globally, including the legendary F-Series, 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 Raptor and Wildtrak 4×4, the Ranger FX4 Max is equipped with the 2.0-liter Bi-Turbo diesel engine, capable of generating 210 hp and 500 Nm of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission. The powertrain provides the FX4 MAX a 981 kg payload as well as 3,500 kg of towing capability.

The new Ford Ranger FX4 Max is now on sale in dealers with a launch price of P1,698,000.

“The FX4 MAX builds on the success of the Ranger as a rugged and versatile pickup while harnessing the winning off-roading capabilities of the Ranger Raptor. True to our Live the Ranger Life philosophy, the FX4 MAX caters to customers who are up for challenges and go over the horizon to experience their adventure of a lifetime with the pickup truck’s uncompromising blend of toughness and power,” adds Umashankar.
