Ford Australia has added a heavy duty steel bull-bar as a genuine Ford accessory on its award-winning PX Ranger one-tonne pickup to compliment the alloy bull-bar already available.
The new heavy duty bull-bar is constructed of strong but lightweight steel and was developed primarily for the demanding environments of the mining industry.
ADR-compliant and designed to integrate with PX Ranger’s safety systems, the new heavy duty bull-bar maintains a five-star Australian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) rating when fitted to a five-star rated PX Ranger.
The Ford bar features a lower splash shield designed to prevent excess water getting into the engine bay. Finished in a grey powder coat, the new bull-bar also offers auxiliary lamps and two antenna brackets.
“We designed the heavy duty bull-bar for the harsh environments experienced in the mining industry but some of our more adventurous private customers put their Rangers through worse (conditions) every weekend,” said Ford marketing manager David Katic.
“We’ve received a lot of customer inquiries for a heavy duty bull-bar. This is a serious accessory for the serious Ranger customer.”
When fitted prior to delivery the genuine Ford accessory bull-bar is covered by Ford’s three year / 100,000kms new car warranty and is available from Ford dealers for RRP $2107.00 installed.
