One of the reasons the Ford Ranger is so immensely popular in the Philippine market is its potential for customization. Is the truck’s stock form and capability too vanilla for your taste? Well, you have plenty of options if you’re willing to stray a little further from the dealership.
But what if, say, you want all those extras installed onto your Ranger before you leave the showroom? Well, you’re out of luck (unless you want to go all-out on a Ranger Raptor) as the company doesn’t offer much in terms of accessories. This isn’t the case in the US, though, where the carmaker is offering three new performance packages with its hot-selling pickup available for installation at dealerships.
There are three packages to choose from—all of them coming with an off-road leveling kit with Fox shocks tuned by Ford Performance, new 17-inch Dyno Gray wheels, and Ford Performance decals on the exterior. These three add-ons make up the Level 1 package (pictured in the main article image), and it’ll set you back $2,495 (over P120,000).
The Level 2 package, meanwhile, adds BFGoodrich KO2 tires, new foglights, blue tow hooks, a stainless steel license plate frame, and a performance boost which brings engine power up to 315hp (16% increase) and torque up to 502Nm (20% increase). This one carries a $4,495 (over P220,000) price tag.
Finally, the Level 3 package includes everything from packages Level 1 and Level 2, but throws in a 40-inch LED light bar, red tow hooks (instead of blue), an ARB winch up front, and a Ford Performance sport exhaust. This package costs $8,995 (almost P450,000).
“Our goal is to inspire customers by giving them capabilities and styling options from the aftermarket brands they love,” Eric Cin, global director of Ford Vehicle Personalization says. “The three new Ford Performance Packs empower our adventure-loving Ranger customers to explore even further with even more freedom with the added off-roading capability right from the dealership.”
