I really like Ford (as you’ve probably noticed) – I’ve written about the Ford Fiesta before and I’m actually considering buying a Ford as my next car purchase!
The latest from Ford is a new contest to promote the beefy looking Ford Ranger! Yes you can actually win the ALL NEW Ford Ranger XLT!
Here’s my challenge to the new Ford Ranger:
Personally I’d like to take the all new Ford Ranger XLT and drive it all the way from KL, up through the North of Malaysia – into Thailand via Bukit Kayu Hitam and onto Hat Yai.
From there, I’d head up to Bangkok then onwards to the Northern part of Thailand where I’d probably take the ferry across to Koh Samui on the way up.
My ultimate dream would be to have a car that could take me all the way up into Laos or Myanmar and perhaps even further into China.
With the rough roads in Thailand, the harsh weather conditions and long periods of driving I don’t think there would be many cars that could survive that journey (mine certainly couldn’t!).
I believe that the Ford Ranger would be up for this Challenge and I’d love to try it out and put it to the test.
The most exciting thing for me about this contest is you actually stand a chance to be one of the FIRST people in Malaysia to own this brand new model!
Basically what you need to do is submit an idea on how to put the new Ford Ranger to the ultimate test, you can do it with words (200 words or less) – include an image or even make a video!
The 5 finalists will be loaned an all-new Ford Ranger and filmed carrying out the challenge they have posed in their entry. There are some roadshows by Ford starting soon, I’ll post more about that later though.
