The new Ford Ranger has been on sale for nearly a year, and more customization options coming from the Ford Performance department, aftermarket manufacturers, and dealership. Here is an overview of many different ways of modifying a new Ford Ranger, including several Rangers that Ford is previewing for the 2019 SEMA Show.
The truck you see above is a Ford Ranger Raptor conversion done by PaxPower . Ford is not offering the Ranger Raptor in the United States, but several aftermarket companies are providing a way for us (in the U.S.) to get access to a high-performance off-road Ranger truck. This particular package includes Ford Ranger Raptor body panels, special suspension, custom bumper, wheels, and more.
Ford has officially previewed six customized Ranger trucks that will be shown at the 2019 SEMA industry show this November in Las Vegas.
Most of the overland-ready Ford Ranger trucks you see above utilize a 2-inch leveling suspension lift kit by Ford Performance division. This is available as a dealer-installed kit for around $1,500 plus labor. This 2-inch front lift allows the customized trucks to roll on 33-inch tall off-road tires.
Not all Ford Ranger have to be lifted and ready for an overland adventure. Here is an example of a street-focused lowered Ford Ranger.
Finally, here is a Ford Ranger with a “back in time” package that is offered by Chapman Ford of Lancaster. This lifted truck with a retro stripe / color combination is offered for sale at this dealership.
Here is how a stock 2019 Ford Ranger FX4 compares to a Jeep Gladiator off-road.
