The 2014 Ford Ranger Odyssey is done and dusted.
The 20 contestants successfully completed a 2 500km, 12 day 4×4 adventure through north west Namibia. All contestants and vehicles returned to SA in one piece.
“The Ranger Odyssey is designed to give ordinary people the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore some of Africa’s remarkable destinations, while experiencing the exceptional capabilities of the Ford Ranger,” says Dale Reid, Ford Ranger’s Brand Manager, who took part in the entire trip.
“Aside from reaffirming the tough character of the Ranger, what made the trip even more amazing was the great group of contestants. Each person gave it their all throughout the two weeks, and were grateful to have simply made the final trip which was a truly life-changing experience, never mind the chance to take the overall prize.
“We now have a group of 20 individuals who have seen what the Ranger is capable of and have become ambassadors for the product and the Ford brand as a whole. As a bonus, many of them have indicated that even if they don’t win the Ranger for a year, they will be buying one.”
The winners of the 2014 Ranger Odyssey will be announced on 15 October. Look out for a full report on the Ranger Odyssey in an upcoming edition of Leisure Wheels.
