The Ford Ranger is the Pick-Up Truck of the Year

The Ford Ranger is crowned the “Pick-up truck of the Year” at the recently concluded Car of the Year awards.

It’s not a surprise at all to see this, we all know just how capable the Ford Ranger is, the pick-up truck actually has a cult following of its own! At the inaugural ASEAN Car of the Year awards show the other night, the Ford Ranger is crowned the favourite among the rest.

The ACOTY award’s panel of judges is made up of motoring journalists from Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia as well as industry experts including insurers and third-party warranty service providers from across the ASEAN region.

Ford is proud to announce that the new Ranger was rated highest by judges from Malaysia and Thailand, gaining favour thanks to its five-star ASEAN NCAP rating reinforces Ranger’s safety leadership, with up to six airbags along with the numerous smart technologies.

“We are extremely proud that the new Ford Ranger was named ‘Pick-up Truck of the Year’ in the inaugural ASEAN Car of the Year award ceremony. This achievement and honour really highlights Ranger’s ‘Built Ford Tough’ credentials and solidifies its position as the benchmark by which all other pickup trucks are judged,” said Mark Kaufman, president, Ford ASEAN.

“Leveraging our proud truck heritage and global expertise in the pick-up truck segment, we’ve designed Ranger to take on the extreme environments that customers can experience daily in the ASEAN region. From class-leading 800mm water wading to exceptional payload capacity, Ranger really is Built Ford Tough.”
