Ford Racing Off Road takes the franchise away from the tracks and urban streets of its predecessors to rugged and tough terrain for the very first time. Ford Racing Off Road also marks the introduction of the prestigious Land Rover brand, which, like Ford, has a long heritage of producing pioneering off road vehicles.

The latest addition to the popular Ford licensed franchise will put players behind the wheel of 18 of the world’s toughest 4x4s, SUVs and off-road trucks, including the new 2009 Ford F150 FX4, and take them on a tour of 24 detailed tracks through deserts, water and ice.
