The 4x4 is a brawnier version of the T4, a vehicle that served as an alternative to the Jeep Wrangler before Ford acquired the Troller brand in 2007 and initiated a major redesign in 2014. In addition to a newly available, Ranger-sourced six speed automatic transmission and locking rear differential, the TX4 comes standard with a front air snorkel intake for wading, rocker panels, a Naval Blue front grille and either a Trancoso Brown, Maragogi Green or Frosted Silver paint coat.

Options include steel front and rear bumpers, Pirelli Scorpion MTR 245/70 R17 run-flat tires, white LED headlights, submersible auxiliary Hella LED lights, Isofix interior hooks, and three-point seat belts. Ford's 3.2-liter Duratorq straight-five diesel engines that produces 200 hp in the T4 also provides power for the TX4, and its and 4WD drivetrain can be set to 4x2, 4x4 high or 4x4 with the push of a button at speeds of up 75 mph.

A 6.75-inch touchscreen can be used to operate a JBL sound system that's compatible with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth. Other standard creature comforts include dual-zone digital air conditioning, electric windows and mirrors and a 12-volt outlet.
