Merdeka is coming again, and it’s a time of celebrating our country and all we love about it. The multicultural unity we have, delicious food and beautiful natural beauty in the countryside all define Malaysia. For the 58th Merdeka celebrations, Ford is joining in. With cash rebates or 0% interest rates to enjoy, you’ll love this Merdeka even more. Still thinking about it? We’ll give you some reasons why you should get a Ford for this Merdeka.
Enjoy the Malaysian Countryside
The Malaysian Countryside is one that’s filled with beauty from nature. Flora and fauna are one in a kind in Malaysian forests, and with the many rivers and interesting trails, there are a lot of interesting places to do some off road driving. You can go up north in Terengganu, explore the forests of Pahang, and have a great time down south in Johor.
And the perfect partner to your off-roading adventures? The Ford Ranger. With a maximum output of 150PS@3700rpm and maximum torque of 375Nm @2500rpm, you’ll be able to power yourself through almost anything. The exterior is all rough and tough with a chrome front grille, automatic halogen head lamps, and an auto rain sensing wiper system. Some of the sexy features include Hill Launch Assist (HLA), Hill Descent Control (HDC), Roll Over Mitigation (ROM), Trailer Sway Assist (TSA), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Antilock Braking System (ABS). You also have side impact protection and a collapsible steering column.
You can enjoy up to RM5,500 in cash rebates for the Ford Ranger.

Travel Around Malaysia
A lot of Malaysians can boast of having travelled to many countries overseas. Be it for a holiday, work, or even studies, some of us are always looking for places to go out of the country. How many of us, on the other hand, can boast of having been to all states in Malaysia? Malaysia is a blessed nation that has many treasures including food and cultural sites to visit. Drive up north, and you’ll have the food havens of Ipoh and Penang. Or travel up the East Coast, and you’ll have stunning beaches in Terengganu. Down south, you have Melaka if you’re interested, or Johor where you can find Legoland and Johor Premium Outlets.
The Ford EcoSport is a great car for your long road trips. First up, you have 200mm ground clearance and 550mm water wading so the less developed roads won’t be a problem. The Hill Launch Assist will help you out when you reach the hilly areas of Cameron Highlands or Genting Highlands. As for the inside, folding rear seats flat gives you 705 litres of space in the rear. A 60:40 split allows you to fit in both passengers and luggage while seats can be fully folded or just put back at an angle for comfort. And it’s powered by the same 1.5 Ti-VCT engine as Fiesta, which produces 110bhp @ 6300rpm and 140Nm of torque @ 4400rpm.
Choose between 0% interest rate, or cash rebates up to RM9,000.
Enjoy Short Trips to Your Favourite Locations
Everyone needs a break once in a while. And nothing’s more perfect than a short day trip to your favourite locations. For the city dwellers in Kuala Lumpur, there’s always the beach in Port Dickson, or the cool air of Genting Highlands. A destination that’s just over an hour or two away from your home is perfect to take a breather from work or studies, or just to have fun.
The perfect car to do this? The Ford Focus. With an inline 4-cylinder TI-VCT GDI Engine to bring you across town and out of town, you’ll enjoy every ride. It has GDI to ensure efficient use of fuel, while the electronically-controlled timing of the Ti-VCT makes sure the engine works at its optimum performance, whether you’re travelling in the slow lane or the fast lane. It works together with PowerShift 6-speed Transmission for performance and fuel economy. On the handling, you have Torque Vectoring Control to help you with better control. As for the inside, it’s pure driving pleasure with high-quality materials and premium finishes for your comfort.
Choose between 0% interest rate, or cash rebates up to RM13,000.
A City Drive At Night and Day
A city like Kuala Lumpur is fantastic during the day, and exciting during the night. Shopping malls are aplenty with tons of entertainment around. If shopping is not your thing, there are still tons of things to see and enjoy. You can walk through the busy Petaling Street, or admire the art at Pasar Seni. And as the sun bids the day goodbye and the night comes to life, you’ll have even more to enjoy. You can always have a hearty meal at a busy restaurant or a quiet chat with buddies at the closest mamak.
The Ford Fiesta is perfect for the city. Whether as a drive to your place of work, or just a leisurely drive around town, you’ll enjoy every ride. You can choose between the fuel efficient yet powerful 1.0L EcoBoost® engine, or the 1.5 Ti-VCT engine. Either way, you get a ride that saves fuel while delivering excellent power. You may also love the Smart Regenerative Charging feature which allows additional energy to be converted and stored in the battery rather than dissipated at the brakes, especially during vehicle deceleration. Safety features include ESC, Traction Control & EBD so every drive is safe and comfortable for you and your passengers.
Choose between 0% interest rate, or cash rebates up to RM12,000.
