More bang for your Ford
Both the Ford Ranger and Everest ranges have seen increases to their specification levels. Ford’s latest-generation SYNC®3 infotainment system makes its debut in the Ranger XLT and Wildtrak bakkie models, as well as in the Everest XLT and Limited. Off-road capability has also been improved with the factory-fitted rear differential lock now included as standard fitment on the Everest 4x2 models, as well as on all Ranger XL, XLS, XLT and Wildtrak derivatives. The Ranger XLS models now also have a rear-view camera and park distance control sensors as standard, while extra security is provided because all models now have a spare wheel lock as standard factory equipment. Ford’s SYNC®3 infotainment system with satnav has an eightinch colour touch screen that offers clearer icons and convenient multitouch gestures (such as swipe, slide, scroll and pinch-to-zoom), as well as voice recognition that uses simple, real-world voice commands. All SYNC®3 with Navigation systems sold in South Africa have more than 20 country maps including: Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. More than 3.6-million kilometres of road and 869 000 POIs are listed. Another fantastic innovation is the inclusion of Tracks4Africa, allowing Ford Ranger and Everest owners to take advantage of the unique mapping created from the collective travel experience of the Tracks-4Africa travelling community. All models equipped with SYNC®3 with Navigation in South Africa receive free annual map updates for a period of five years.
