The Ford Ranger Black Edition sets itself apart by featuring a de-chromed body, finished in Absolute Black, and by carrying a dark finish for the grille, sports bar, alloy wheels, and other exterior detailing.
Standard equipment specification includes the Ford SYNC 3 infotainment system, with an 8-inch touchscreen display, reversing camera, satellite navigation, dual-zone climate control, leather seat trim, power-foiling heated side mirrors, and front parking sensors.
“Ranger customers appreciate the vehicle’s tough, go-anywhere capability, and its rugged good looks, and we expect this attractive new limited series to be snapped up within weeks”, said Ford of Europe’s General Manager for Commercial Vehicles, Hans Schep.
Ford will have the new Ranger Black Edition on display at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, from September 12.
