The fact that Vigus 5 is the result of a joint venture
between JMC and Ford ensures parts availability. For an item such as a towbar or canopy, these are readily on the local market. The vehicle is
fitted with ABS (EBD) disc brakes and dual airbags are standard. The well thought out and functional dashboard
has been designed for top-end technological good looks and feel. The main
feature is the large touchscreen that is centrally-mounted in the dashboard.
The fuel tanks have a 68- litre capacity. Both the twin and
double cab range have surprisingly good fuel consumption ratios for such a high-
performance diesel engine vehicle, clocking around 8 litres+/100km.
From its striking bold grille to its flowing flanks and wheel arch flares, the Vigus slices through
the air. Its aerodynamics is further enhanced with a steeply raked windscreen.
All of these attributes translate into impressive fuel efficiency.
With the launch of the Vigus range, JMC side steps any previous shortcomings to
satisfy South African consumer demands. These highly recommended bakkies, with their striking appearance and practical
road-holding performance, offers the South African market a lifestyle evolution at a competitive price. Be it for leisure or
commercial use, and with a reputation for durability and toughness, the JMC Vigus 5
