That is where the MS-RT Ranger comes in. Sold by vehicle stylists Autosource International, the imposing dual-cab has bolder aesthetics and a more imposing stance over a ‘standard’ Ranger XLT.
What you see here is what you get, with the only option choice being either a six-speed manual variant that costs $86,990, and a six-speed automatic transmission for $88,990 – both are drive-away prices.
The most striking change with the M-Sport ranger is the visuals, with new front and rear bumpers, along with widened arches, thanks to Carlex Design.
The front grille has a pair of LED Lazer light bars integrated into it, which accompany the larger unit affixed to the roof.
A Pedders suspension system gives the Ranger a 50mm lift in ride height, while rolling on unique 18-inch rims and BF Goodrich All Terrain tyres.
The cabin features leather upholstery and a flat-bottomed steering wheel, along with unique contrast stitching.
The rest of the vehicle is standard Ford Ranger, including the infotainment system.
There have been no modifications to performance aside from a dual-exit sports exhaust, meaning the 3.2-litre five-cylinder turbo-diesel engine up front, makes 147kW/470Nm as standard.
