Ford is hoping to accelerate sales of its Ranger pickup truck after recently launching a facelift version for the Thai market.



The 2018 Ranger is also available with a new 2.0-litre bi-turbo engine and 10-speed automatic gearbox. The engine is the most powerful in the market, pumping out as much as 213 horsepower and 500Nm of torque.

Added features include keyless entry and SYNC3 with Thai-enabled Apple CarPlay and Android connection.

With the new engine choice, the Ranger lineup in Thailand now consists of 20 models.

The bi-turbo engine replaces the much larger 3.2-litre engine at the top of the Ranger options. The other two engines are the 2.0-litre (normally-aspirated, new generation) and the old 2.2 Duratoque motor.

Price starts at Bt589,000 for the short wheelbase model to Bt1.7 million for the range-topping Raptor.
