The Ford Ranger Raptor out in November
SCREAMS! Omg, you must think its crazy strange for a girl to be excited over a newly launched car. To those who know me, you'd know that i love big*** cars and that's why I drive a 4WD myself on a daily basis. SAY WHAT? Yes, a petite girl like me loves being the king of the road, and now my dream car at the moment would be the Ford Ranger Raptor! I've been eyeing on it ever since it was out on the news, but finally, it has made its way in Malaysia! Just last week, i was lucky to be invited to the launch of the new Ford Rangers lineup (THANK YOU FORD) and here are some sneak peeks on why you should be excited about the all new Ford Ranger lineup.

Definitely a dream car for me at the moment.
Just to tease you a little, the new Ranger lineup in Malaysia consist of nine different variants, including the XL, XLT, new XLT+ Wildtrak and the much anticipted Ranger Raptor that almost every Ranger fan is eyeing on. To welcome November, the latter will be launched officially at the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2018 this November. The new Ford Ranger will be featuring New Generation Powertrain with 10-speed Transmission and New Advanced Features for even greater capability.

The interior design
On a general perspective of the anticipated new lineup, the new generation Ford Ranger 2.0L will have a Bi-Turbo engine with 10-speed automatic transmission delivers of 213 PS and 500Nm of torque. It is also the first and only in-class technologies that include Semi-Automatic Parallel Parking (SAPP), and Inter-Urban Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with Vehicle and Pedestrian Detection. Always loved the AEB systems on smaller cars, and im legit happy that its now available on a Ford Ranger too! Safety first.

It also offers keyless entry and a push-start button, easy lift tailgate and SYNC 3 with Apple Carplay and Andriod Auto compatibility. WOHOOO! And that's right, it means you can play your Spotify playlist from a few clicks on your phone. It is definitely proven that the new Ford Ranger lineup offers proven performance, with cutting edge technology. Who would have thought a pickup truck can be so sophisticated? Its now tougher and smarter too! Just talking about it in my blog makes me want it even more.

Getting a feel of the all new Ranger
While i was at the preview launch, i managed to get up close on the details of the Ford Ranger Raptor and omgggg, its so sexy! The new Rangers suspension has been upgraded and improved to enhance the driving experience when fully-laden and when towing. The new packaging also enables geometry changes for an improved ride, a reduction in body roll ass well as improved steering precision. For those who drive big cars, you'd know how good it is when a car reduces body roll and steering precision.
