|Sime Darby Auto Connexion, distributors of Ford vehicles, has released the latest price revision on its entire product portfolio for the current year. The ranges include the Ford Fiesta 1.0-liter EcoBoost till the ever popular pick up Ford Ranger.|
SDAC (Sime Darby Auto Connexion) deemed the price revision as an absolute necessity due to the weak sentiment of the Malaysian Ringgit and increasing exchange rates between the US Dollars and Ringgit. This is an industry situation as prices would need to be adjusted to compensate for the lower ringgit.
The Ford Fiesta available in three versions; 1.5l Titanium/1.5l Sport and 1.0l EcoBoost are priced at RM 88,388.00 until 98,488. All prices listed do not include insurance and other charges. The Fiesta EcoBoost, initially launched at the KLIMS ’13, is an expanded model to Ford’s compact line-up in the country. The Fiesta 1.0l EcoBoost, although takes up a rather small powerplant, is able to provide 125 PS of power output and 170 Nm of torque, equivalent to a 1.6-liter petrol engine. In addition, the powerplant offers direct fuel injection, turbocharging and variable valve timing for 20 percent better fuel economy at 4.3-liter/100km and 15 percent lesser emissions, compared to the regular Fiesta.
The 2.0l EcoBoost Ford Mondeo mid-sized sedan saw to a price revision of RM203,888, while the EcoSport compact Crossover in Trend and Titanium trimmings are available at RM 92,888 and 103,988, respectively.
On the Ranger XLT series. 2.2 MT/AT and 3.2 MT/AT, the increase in prices comes with an addition of factory-fitted reverse camera. The Ford Ranger 2.2 XLT MT is revised to RM 102,268 and the 2.2 XLT AT comes in at RM 109,688. The 3.2 XLT MT and AT are revised to RM 111,808 and 119,238. At the top echelon, the Ford Ranger Wildtrack now comes at an ownership cost of RM 137,488.
