The team hosted a three-day Ranger workshop experience for 24 automotive/consumer media and social influencers from Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Tunisia, Kenya, and Thailand.
Guests were also able to put the new 2020 Ranger to the test over various types off-road terrain to get first-hand experience of its power and capability.
Overall feedback – EXTREMELY POSITIVE!
Guests appreciated that they could see the vehicle being built, and drive it as well.
There was a real tangible link in seeing the car come together, and then driving that truck the very next day.
An extremely positive event to drive product awareness and favorability for the Ranger nameplate.
