Ford’s Troller division reveals new, Ranger-based TX4

Ford’s upcoming Bronco has yet to be confirmed for any markets outside North America. Brazilian consumers seeking a rugged, two-door, Ranger-based four-wheel-drive, however, already have one – the Troller. Troller is the name of a Brazilian 4WD manufacturer founded in 1995 and acquired by Ford in 2007. Its only product, the Brazilian-engineered, Jeep Wrangler-inspired T4, has received an automatic transmission and an electrically-operated locking rear differential to become the TX4.

At the front the Equinox now has a much bolder design, with the grille spears now dividing the headlights in two.
