ARB and Ford are joining forces in a collaboration to sell selected off-road accessories as Ford Licensed Accessories through participating Ford dealers in Australia, from a date yet to be announced other than that it will be in the second half of 2021.
Ford Ranger and Everest customers will be able to fit-out their vehicles with a range of ARB 4×4 Accessories that will be fully backed by Ford Australia’s New Vehicle Warranty of up to five years / unlimited kilometres.
The full range of accessories to be made available will be outlined closer to launch. Among these will be core off-road products such as winch compatible bull-bars, electric winches and driving lights, as well as other accessories like storage drawer systems.
ARB 4×4 Accessories for Ranger and Everest that will be made available through Ford dealerships have been validated by Ford Australia engineers, with testing conducted at a number of locations including the Ford Australia Proving Ground near Lara, Victoria.
“We are very proud to welcome ARB on-board as they are known globally and respected in the off-road community for their state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and stringent quality controls,” says Andrew Birkic, President and CEO of Ford Australia and New Zealand.
“A lot of our customers have told us they’d love to be able to access a wider range of quality off-road accessories through our Ford dealership network, and this collaboration will mean they can head off-road safely with access to a range of ARB accessories.”
