the paultan.org Premium Motor Show (PACE) is back for 2022, and the two-day event will feature the best new and used car deals, special buyer perks and great prizes up for grabs. Mark your calendar for March 19-20 to Setia City Congress Center (SCCC).
You’ve heard it before, but now really is the best time to buy a car, if it’s already in your plans, because the current sales tax exemption we have – 50% for CBU imports and 100% CKD for locally assembled cars – will end June 30. Don’t bet on another last-minute overtime, as there have already been plenty of rounds. Also, buying now will get you a new ride in time for Hari Raya.
Participating brands include Mercedes-Benz (represented by Hap Seng Star), BMWs and MINIs (represented by Auto Bavaria), volkswagen, VOLVO, Jaguar, land rover, Ford and hyundai. Cool motorcycles from BMW Motorrad and Harley-Davidson will also join the party. In this article, we will focus on the Blue Oval.
the Ford Ranger XLT Plus Special Edition was announced last week. The latest variant of the T6 Ranger is macho, adding choice aesthetic benefits to the mid-range XLT Plus variant. The most obvious change is up front, where the SE wears a Raptor-style grille with Ford script in all-caps. It’s not the exact Raptor grille, and it has the Ranger name on top, but the all-black, chrome-free element is pretty close.
The Raptor style grille has to be the most popular mod among Ranger owners and now you can get the factory look. The macho additions don’t stop there – the SE also gets black plastic wheel arch extensions and a tube-style sports bar on the bed. Inside there are illuminated sill scuff plates and a front dash camera with a 32GB memory card and smartphone connectivity via an app.
The rest of the specifications are identical to the XLT Plus. The latest 2.0-litre EcoBlue turbodiesel engine produces 180PS and 420Nm of torque, mated to a 10-speed automatic gearbox, four-wheel drive and a limited-slip rear differential. The Ford Ranger XLT Plus Special Edition is priced at RM136,888.
