LAST year we tested the Safari ARMAX ECU installed on its 70 Series Land Cruiser, which is also available for a range of diesel-powered Toyotas: Land Cruiser 200 Series, Prado, Hilux and Fortuner.
Safari 4X4 Engineering, headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, has now turned its attention to the Blue Oval, making the ARMAX ECU available for the Ford Ranger and Everest (3.2-litre MY17+ models).
We drove Safari’s PXIII-spec Ranger decked out with aftermarket accessories, including Safari’s ARMAX snorkel and, of course, the ARMAX ECU. The route, which took us from city roads to off-road tracks and tight mountain corners, enabled us to sample the ECU’s five modes.
We also spoke to Safari’s David Burns about the new product. Plus, we hitched a 3200kg caravan to the rear of the Ranger and tested out the unit’s predictive towing mode.
The Safari ARMAX ECU for the Ranger and Everest is available now. Watch the above video for comprehensive coverage, and check head to www.safari4x4.com.au for more information.
