MS-RT Ford Ranger adds visual impact to dual-cab hero

Taller, wider, Ford Ranger arrives via M-Sport

MS-RT Ford Ranger adds visual impact to dual-cab hero

The Ford Ranger is one of Australia’s most popular cars, so it is understandable that some will be trying to stand out from the crowd.

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.
