Ford has introduced a new model of the Ranger pick-up, developed in partnership with MS-RT (M-Sport - Road Technology). This is a much more sophisticated version of the more muscular looking desert race influenced Ford Ranger Raptor.
Based on the Wildtrak which is already pretty comprehensively equipped the MS-RT gets a distinctive new front grille and integrated fog lights. These are complemented by its extended wheel arches and sculpted sideskirts which wrap around the huge 255/60 x 20 inch OZ Racing alloy wheels.
There is no change to the 1,098kg payload and 3,500kg towing capacity.
No details of price as yet but the pickup will be available to order from Summer this year.
However, there is one insignificant tiny wee option on the list which will be a 'must tick' for many of us really sad gits. The Maxhaust app-controlled soundbox delivers a soundtrack that will have you reaching for the Radio/CD 'off' button! Me first!
