For the uninitiated, ARB is an Australian off-road accessory manufacturer and distributor recognized around the world. The company tailors to various automakers including the Ford brand. Now, Ford Philippines has partnered with ARB to offer its off-road accessories to Filipinos.
Among the off-road accessories that are available include suspension kits, bull bar, side steps, rails, base rack, under vehicle protection (UVP), and snorkel. ARB also offers a rooftop tent for a more intense camping experience. With these, owners and prospective buyers of the Ranger and Everest can drive to different off-road destinations with ease.

The Ford Ranger is the brand’s entry into the pickup truck market, while the Everest is the truck’s midsize SUV counterpart. Both are powered by a 2.0-liter diesel engine available in either a single or bi-turbo setup. In the latter, the power unit is capable of making 207 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque.

ARB and Ford are working together to ensure that the accessories are compatible with the American automaker’s vehicles. The partnership has been running for quite some time now that even the previous generation Ranger and Everest were available with ARB accessories.
ARB Accessories are now available in Ford dealerships nationwide. All accessories come with a 3-year warranty, while suspension kits come with a 3-year warranty or 60,000 km – whichever comes first.
ARB improves style and functionality
“We are very proud to welcome this collaboration with ARB as they are known and respected in the global off-road accessories community for the craftsmanship, quality, and reliability of their products,” said Ford Customer Service Division Director Patrick Manigbas.
“Through this groundbreaking partnership, we are able to offer world-class 4x4 accessories to our next-gen Ford customers as we see more of them enjoying various activities with their vehicles such as car camping and off-roading,” added Manigbas.
