Ford have decided to give South African rugby star Bismarck du Plessis one of their new Ford Ranger bakkies as part of a new sponsorship deal. The Ford Ranger is a double cab 3.0 litre TDCI 4x4 bakkie and produces 115kW at 3200rpm.
Ford have a long-standing relationship with SA rugby and it is great to see them continuing their support. One can only assume they selected Bismarck as the representative because he is built like a bakkie and goes hand in hand with the Ford Ranger. Ford note that Bismarck is a hero to many young South Africans through his rugby play and this partnership is a massive positive boost for both parties.
