Ford Ranger Avantgarde Hardtop Incorporating The Highest Level Security Package Plus 3 Door Alarm And Central Locking
Hi my name is Alec from Pegasus.
I'm here today to talk to you about the latest hardtop that we produce for the new Ford Ranger.
All The hardtops that we produce for each vehicle are designed for the shape of each vehicle, so the one we've produced for the Ford Ranger will be different to the Nissan Navara or the Volkswagen Amarok or indeed the new Mercedes X Class.
All the hard tops are made from fiberglass and they are painted in factory colours with a near perfect match, by using DuPont paint or I C I paint.
The Avantgarde model we have here is fitted with the extra pack which we call the security pack. That includes a metal mesh on the inside of the glass for security, which I'll demonstrate later; includes central locking on the tailgate; and an alarm on the canopy which is linked to the vehicle.
Roof bars are an option on this particular hard top. This one the customer's decided not to have them fitted, but we can fit them if required.
The Avantgarde model benefits from central locking on all three doors, so if I lock the vehicle this side door and the other side door and the rear door are all locked; if I press the remote on the key for the car the doors will open.
What's particularly nice about the Ford Ranger with the security pack is it's got this metal mesh fitted to all the glazed windows. So, from a security point of view, if somebody was to break the glass externally they still wouldn't get past this metal mesh, which is fitted internally. So, if you are carrying anything valuable you could be sure that it's well protected.
Another feature of the Pegasus hardtop is the fact that we make these bespoke solid frame doors, rather than just pieces of glass. By making solid frame doors that allows us to incorporate central locking into these side doors which is very convenient, and also allows us to fit this added security mesh.
On the latest model with the security pack is the interior light is now functioning automatically off each door. Whether it be the rear door, the other side door, or this door, through this plunger switch here. So, if I close that door down that light will disappear.
Going round to the rear of the vehicle you’ll see it is fitted spoiler and there is an integrated brake light in this position here.
The glass is heavily tinted at 80% so again from the security point of view very difficult for any prying eyes to look inside. Again, the rear door is a solid rear door, which opens up like so. Again, the mesh is fitted on the rear door, which you can see.
Now going towards the front of the vehicle you can see that we've got sliding glass, which opens 50% one way or 50% the other, and that allows you to access to clean the rear window of the pickup because you can't access it from the sides.
The interior light is an LED interior light, again working automatically off each door.
The roof lining itself is triple skinned, and we've done that because people who have got dogs – it keeps it nice and cool for them in the summer. So you've got two layers of fiberglass, and then you've got the suspended foam lining here, which really does work very well during the hot summer period, especially the last one we've had.
Finally, there is always a courtesy umbrella fitted. I always found that I needed an umbrella in a vehicle. A pickup’s not a particularly great place to keep one inside the pickup, so we've put one there for your convenience.
Now the other part of the security pack which I mentioned earlier was in fact the central locking for the tailgate. The tailgate itself is locked manually but sometimes you forget to lock it with the key, so for added security we fitted the central locking system.
If I unplug that it’s now open (this one's got tailgate assist by the way) and if I close it then press the central locking everything is now secure.
This handle can’t open here and you can't open here, so everything works off the function with a key, which is extremely useful.
What I want to show you now is the alarm system, and I have to wait a minute for it to activate once the central locking is set. The only way I can demonstrate it for you is by using the spare key that comes with this hardtop; in fact, there's three spare keys, should you not be able to open it by the central locking for whatever reason. It doesn't normally happen but it's always very useful to have a spare key in case you need to get in.
So I'm going to attempt to open this now, having left it what I think is enough time. When I unlock this door manually, by opening this door (which is really replicating somebody breaking in) the alarm should go off, and I should be able to switch it off with the key afterwards. So, if I open this door you’ll see the alarm has gone off on the vehicle as intended (alarm sound).
I've released it. so I think that's a clear demonstration how useful that is. I think we're the only ones that are doing it.
Now we've got this alarm system fitted to the vehicle, so the whole thing is totally secure. You've got central locking on all doors; you’ve got central locking on the tailgate; and you've got an alarm system fitted, so the Avantgarde with security pack is a highly desirable hard top. All our hard tops come with a three-year warranty on all parts, except glass.
Thank you for listening.
