The New Ford Troller TX4 Is a Rugged Jeep Wrangler-Inspired 4×4
This rough-and-tumble SUV is brawnier than ever for 2020.
The 4×4 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 4×2, 4×4 high or 4×4 with the push of a button at speeds of up 75 mph.
The TX4’s interior boasts orange air vents and vinyl-clad seats with matching stitching. 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.
With all add-ons equipped, the 2020 Ford Troller TX4 costs around $40,000. But again, it’s currently only available in South America, so we’ll have to see how the revived Ford Bronco stacks up when it officially debuts this spring.
