What’s special?

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.
