Ford Ranger FX4 Max Is Australia’s Version Of The Ranger Tremor

Sponsored Links

The 2021 Ford Ranger Tremor off-road package was just unveiled earlier this week as the most off-road capable, factory-built North American Ranger to date. But over in Australia, buyers have a whopping 35 Ford Ranger variants to choose from, including the Ranger Raptor. Apparently, Ford didn’t want to make Aussies feel left out, so it’s also giving their very own version of the Tremor – the Ford Ranger FX4 Max.

The Ford Ranger FX4 Max is based on the Tremor off-road package, and is already on sale with deliveries scheduled to begin later in the year. Pricing starts out at $65,940 AUD ($48,195 U.S.), which is $4,700 ($3,435) more than the outgoing FX4, $150 ($109) more than the Wildtrak, and a whopping $11,250 ($8,222) less than the Ranger Raptor.

The Ranger FX4 Max is available only in SuperCrew 4×4 spec, with Ford’s 2.0L Bi-Turbo four-cylinder turbo-diesel that produces 157 kW (210 horsepower) and 500 nM of torque (369 pound-feet) mated to FoMoCo’s 10-speed automatic transmission. Buyers have the choice of only three additional options – a Tech Pack with adaptive cruise control and self-parking, red decals for the hood, doors, and tailgate, and “prestige” paint.

Otherwise, the FX4 Max is essentially a “Raptor lite,” and comes equipped with a lifted suspension, Fox shocks, and 32 inch BFGoodrich K02 All-Terrain tires. Additional exterior features include Raptor-style Conquer Grey or Alabaster White paint, a “Ford” script grille, metal tubular side steps, unique 17 inch black alloy wheels, and a full-length rear sports bar.

Interior features include all-weather floor mats, Max-specific seating including carbon accents with Miko suede inserts and FX4 Max embroidery, Raptor sports pedals, and Black Alley inserts for the leather-wrapped steering wheel, door trim, dash applique, and six auxiliary switches on top of the dash used for controlling various accessories like aftermarket lighting, just like the ones present in the F-150 Raptor.

“The Ranger FX4 Max channels the Ranger Raptor with its unique look and stance, while bringing customers both work and play capability with its locally engineered suspension, chassis tuning, and unique Fox Shocks,” said Ford Australia and New Zealand CEO and president Andrew Birkic. “A factory-finished Ranger, FX4 Max builds on the previous FX4 to deliver even greater off-road capability, yet adds its own distinctive style and genuine mechanical upgrades for a truly one-of-a-kind Ranger.”
