From fun camping trips to visiting waterfalls and hillside nature walks, Malaysians who miss the great outdoors can take advantage of weekends for fun road trips at the end of the year (with masks and social distancing, of course!)

Maybe it's a food-filled drive to Ipoh or Penang. Perhaps it's to enjoy the chilly weather at Genting Highlands or Kundasang, or even a short drive to Santubong, just to escape bustling city life with your best buddies.

Whichever place you choose to explore, you'd want a reliable and adventurous vehicle to make sure your travel plans can go as smoothly as possible.

So, if you're an adrenaline junkie who's in the market for a vehicle that suits your active lifestyle with friends and family — and looks ultra stylish to boot — now's the time to check out Ford's New WildTrak Sport Special Edition pickup truck

Fans of utility vehicles like the Ranger WildTrak would understand its powerful capabilities on the road. With a 10-speed automatic transmission and refined 2.0L Bi-Turbo engine, this premium pickup truck delivers all the power and torque you need — regardless of whether you're driving on smooth roads to work or bumpy jungle terrain on a weekend getaway.

It comes with up to 1,000kg payload and up to 3,500kg towing capacity, besides an 800mm water wading capability that lets you easily cross rivers too. Plus, with the Ranger WildTrak's Electronic Stability Program, you'll have greater control on the road, as the vehicle adapts to changing force loads while you're driving.

Meanwhile, the truck bed is fitted with a 12V power outlet, plus a light that comes in handy when your surroundings get dark

You'll never have to worry about your devices getting low on juice with this 12V power outlet (protected with a waterproof cover), which is especially important when you're trekking far from the city. And thanks to the Ranger WildTrak's Easy Lift Tailgate technology, closing the tailgate after you load or unload your vehicle is effortless even when you have your hands full — all it needs is a gentle push, and it shuts securely.

Here are other technological features that makes this utility vehicle extra cool too:

1. An Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) system that detects and alerts you on vehicles and pedestrians on the road

2. Adaptive Cruise Control that scans traffic and adjusts speed automatically

3. SYNC 3 — an 8-inch touchscreen display unit with Bluetooth, voice recognition, and navigation system that supports smartphone-like functionalities, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

And with the New WildTrak Sport Special Edition, you can expect a stylishly sporty new look, packed with safety technology features, on top of its superior performance that fans have come to know and love

The new WildTrak Sport Special Edition features contemporary-looking enhancements, both in its interior and exterior. As a higher-end model, the Ford WildTrak Sport Special Edition is upholstered with premium leather that is now embossed, as well as sporty stitching details on its steering wheel.

Here's what else you can expect:

- New front painted grille
- 18'' black alloy wheels
- Ebony black wing mirrors
- Black lift handle
- Black door handles
- Illuminated front scuff plates with logo
- WildTrak Sport emblem
- Leather embossed seats
