For fans in Brazil.
The Ford Ranger might be a newcomer to the US market but thee Blue Oval is already offering a number of cool special editions such as the off-road-focused Tremor, and the beefy FX4 MAX. While the Ranger does battle in the competitive midsize pickup segment against the likes of the Chevy Colorado and Toyota Tacoma, Brazil has also grown fond of this hardy machine, and the Ford division of Brazil has now announced a cool-looking off-road appearance package to add some hardcore flavor to the plain base model. Unfortunately, this kit won't be coming to the US any time soon, but window shopping has never hurt anyone.
Officially titled the "Sports and Off-Road Accessory Kit", this new package includes a select number of appearance parts to transform the standard Ranger into something that resembles a Raptor, or something closely related. The package includes the obligatory raptor-style grille, boldly displaying the Ranger script in bold lettering. To make the standard Ranger look a bit more beefed up, the package includes a set of black plastic fender flares, some wide side steps, a sturdy-looking bed cover, and an optional snorkel for those who take their off-roading seriously. The most performance-oriented mod on the list has to be the Scorpion A/T Plus tires.
Ford Brazil is directly targeting owners of the base model who wish to mimic the look of the more expensive Storm Version. The good news is that all the parts offered in the kit are OEM, so there won't be any quality issues down the road, and the package also caters to those who want the look of the Storm, but prefer the lighter 2.2-liter turbodiesel over the larger 3.2-liter powerplant. The kit will fit any 2019 or 2020 Ranger, and while Ford Brazil is yet to announce a launch date, we expect it to arrive soon.
