It may not be that substantial of a refresh for the Ford truck, but it gets some changes nonetheless—mainly with its grille, to be exact. The trapezoidal pattern that you see on the PH-spec FX4 is now featured in Ford Thailand’s other Ranger variants such as the Wildtrak. This new grille has also been wrapped with more black plastic that further accentuate to the front fascia.
Not much has changed apart from this. There are new blacked-out alloy wheels underneath, and that’s about all of the major tweaks. No changes under the hood here.
There is, however, a new Ford Thailand Racing-inspired XL Street variant—we reckon that look came from the race-ready Ranger we featured a while back. But in case this new model makes it over to our shores, we’re not expecting this special variant to come with it.
Now, that’s not the only news Ford Thailand has for us—the carmaker also revealed a facelifted Everest as well. And just like the Ranger, this midsize SUV only gets subtle changes. There’s a new grille up front, and there’s also a new ‘Everest’ chrome lettering on the hood. No need to get those aftermarket bits for this one.
No changes under the hood here, either, but there are new color options, namely: Snow Flake White Pearl for the Trend, Titanium, and Titanium+, and an exclusive Deep Crystal Blue for the Titanium Sport. It’s worth noting that it’s only been a little over a year since Ford Philippines launched the refreshed Everest here in our market, so we’re not expecting this model from Thailand to arrive here anytime soon.
