Ford has teamed up with vehicle design specialists MS-RT in Europe, and introduced an exclusive new model of the award-winning Ranger, called the Ford Ranger MS-RT.
The Ranger MS-RT combines a motorsport-inspired appearance with a premium specification and unique, hand-finished detailing, offering customers a high-end, street-focused version of Europe’s best-selling pick-up that sits alongside the Ranger Raptor at the pinnacle of the Ranger line-up in Europe.
The new model, which is based on the Ranger Wildtrak, comes with key exterior features that include a hand-built front fascia featuring a honeycomb carbon fibre-effect grille and integrated fog lights.
The striking side profile adds to the sporty character while 20-inch OZ Racing alloy wheels, extended wheel arches and sculpted side skirts create a purposeful stance. Frozen White, Sea Grey or Agate Black paints emphasise the imposing styling, embellished by carbon fibre-effect mirror caps, an aerodynamic load bar and MS‑RT badges.
Inside, the cabin features premium leather trim with contrast orange stitching, complemented by ambient lighting and heated front seats. There is also MS-RT detailing for floor mats and scuff plates which add a bespoke feel.
Ford’s SYNC 3 connectivity and navigation system with 8-inch touchscreen simplifies access to communication and entertainment features, and the rear-view camera helps when parking or hitching to a trailer.
“Ranger MS-RT is designed for customers who value Ranger’s hard-working capability but want the racing pedigree and hand-finished exclusivity of our MS-RT series”, said Brendan Lyne, director, Commercial Vehicles, Ford of Europe.
“This eye-catching vehicle blends Ford’s decades of success in pick-up trucks with striking motorsport-inspired design to offer a road-focused truck combining immense kerb appeal with the hard-working ability that our customers love.”
Power comes courtesy of Ford’s range-topping Bi-turbo 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine which is paired to a 10‑speed automatic transmission, delivering 213 PS and 500 Nm of torque to move payloads of up to 1,098kg and a towing weight of 3,500kg.
Further complementing the powertrain package are features like the Ranger’s selectable four-wheel drive system, and a Maxhaust app-controlled soundbox that is available as a dealer-fit option for customers desiring a sporty soundtrack.
MS-RT is a Qualified Vehicle Modifier working with established Ford motorsport partner M-Sport, applying World Rally Championship-winning experience to create strikingly modified versions of Ford’s market-leading commercial vehicles.
As the latest vehicle in Ford’s One-Stop Shop, the Ranger MS-RT joins an exciting range of conversions built to exacting factory standards and available directly through Ford dealers, including the Transit Custom and Transit Connect MS-RT vans, and Transit Custom Nugget camper van.
