Ford Trucks unveils models tailored for the GCC
Ford Trucks used Saudi Transtec 2015 as a platform to showcase its 4135M and 1843T models, which come with the option of a ‘Hot Climate Package’ developed specifically for the GCC
Ford Trucks has unveiled its 4135M and 1843T models in Saudi Arabia for the first time.
The vehicles, which were showcased at Saudi Transtec 2015, are available with the manufacturer’s ‘Hot Climate Package’, which has been developed specifically for GCC countries.
The package is designed to deliver comfort in hot and dusty environments, with higher air conditioning performance, improved radiators, and increased filtration.
Ford Trucks’ Hot Climate Package underwent a two-year development period, during which time vehicles were subjected to endurance tests in laboratories that simulated the Middle East’s hot, humid, and dusty operating environment.
Customers’ expectations were also studied during the development period, and 300,000km of road tests were conducted on the Kingdom’s roads.
Ford’s 1843T tractor and 4135M mixer models can be customised with different engine, transmission, and cabin modules for on- and off-road conditions.
Saudi Transtec 2015 took place from 8-10 December in Dammam.
