“Ranger Splash” decals with fluorescent treatments on each side complete the truck’s sporty and rugged looks and differentiation as a limited edition.
The Limited Edition Ford Ranger Splash will be the first pickup truck in the country to be sold via the eCommerce platform.
Customers who are interested can view the truck at the Ford Petaling Jaya 2, Sime Darby Auto ConneXion showroom, the only location where the truck will be on display before it goes on sale.
In tandem with the year 2019, only 19 units of the vehicle will be on sale, all of which will be sold exclusively on Lazada’s eCommerce platform on Nov 11 at Lazada’s annual 11.11 Shopping Festival.
