Ford Wants To Sell You The Ranger With The New Black Appearance Package

Ford wants to cash in more on the new-gen Ford Ranger’s good start, so they have launched the Black Appearance Package.

Sold alongside many other packages, it’s available as a $1,995 option and can be opted to the pickup truck regardless of the selected exterior color.

The new Black Appearance Package adds a series of black exterior elements such as the grille, running boards, spray-in bed liner, fender vent surround, side mirror casings, sill plates, lower valance and bash plate on the FX4 Off-Road Package.

The front and rear bumpers are painted in the same shade as the rest of the vehicle and a set of 18-inch aluminum rims, with a high-gloss black look and black center caps, rounds up the list of visual updates.

“Like the rest of their gear, Ranger customers are choosing the option that best fits their adventures”, commented the brand’s Truck Group Marketing Manager, Todd Eckert. “Having the right gear matters, and so does the right look. The Black Appearance Package adds aggressive style to the adventures our customers embark on.”

The 2019 Ranger has a $24,300 starting price in the XL model. The XLT and Lariat can be had from $27,940 and $32,210, respectively.

Powering all trim levels is the 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbocharged four cylinder engine. It produces 270 horsepower (273 PS / 201 kW) and 310 pound-feet (420 Nm) of torque, and is connected to a 10-speed transmission.

The range has a towing capacity of up to 7,500 lbs (3,402 kg) for both the 2WD and 4WD models, and a maximum payload of 1,860 lbs (844 kg).

    Or you can buy a can of black PlastiDip for a couple dollars. I don’t know which is more ridiculous: offering petty “packages” for an astronomical fee or the people who hand over their money for said “package”.
