Vehicle Technology

The current range of Ford vehicles (Ranger, Everest and Raptor) are packed with vehicle features and technology. Remember that a 4x4 is first and foremost a safety feature and then also a vehicle capability enhancement. The technology included in the Ford products is ever evolving and improving and each new range has some improvements on the previous. Some of this technology is particularly relevant to 4x4 driving environments and to get the most out of your vehicle it is strongly advised that you come and join us for one of these free and fun filled days.


4x4 Introduction

Ford Motor Company South Africa has included a free level 1 4x4 course as part of your vehicle’s purchase. The fee course is valid for 12 months from date of purchase. The course will cover all the off road relevant technologies in your vehicle and it is explained by our expert 4x4 instructors at one of the 4x4 venue’s spread around Southern Africa. The course also covers the basics of 4x4 driving and is an introductory course into 4x4 driving. This being said the team has years of 4x4 driving and overlanding experience and even if this is not your 1st 4x4 purchase, you will learn something new on the day.


Obstacle identification

Part of the course is understanding your vehicle, its dynamics and dimensions, to better equip you in an off-road environment. A lot of off-road driving is based around correctly identifying your environment and setting yourself and your vehicle up correctly for the obstacle or terrain. A good portion of the course is not only focused on technical vehicle details, but in identifying your obstacle and approaching it in the correct manner.


Practical Driving

At the end of the day, its all about the practical driving experience and the majority of the day will be spent in your vehicle on one of our various 4x4 tracks and courses to practically apply what you have learned in the classroom session. The instructors will be at hand to guide your through the obstacles to give you guidance and build your confidence. Specific time is spent to highlight key vehicle features in real world off-road environments. At the end of the day you should walk away from the day with confidence in yourself and your vehicle.
