Snow was nowhere to be found at the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, but this custom Ford Ranger brought the cool mountain-ready vibes all the same. Based on a 2019 Ford Ranger XLT Sport SuperCrew FX4, this truck was extensively upgraded by RTR Vehicles, and features a variety of new equipment for performance, styling, and capability.
“RTR created the Ford Ranger RTR Rambler to deliver a balance of street-ability, overlanding, trail capacity and camping fun on the long-distance trek to hunt fresh powder and escape urban-centered life,” Ford explains.
Up front, the Ford Ranger now sports a new bumper from Ford Performance by ARB, which is equipped with a winch. There’s also a new RTR upper grille that completes the look with eye-catching styling.
The side view reveals new RTR Vehicles fender flares, which house RTR Tech 6 wheels sized at 17 inches in diameter and nine inches in width. The fresh rollers come wrapped in 285/70R17 Nitto Ridge Grappler tires. There’s also a FOX tuned by Ford Performance off-road suspension leveling kit to give the Ford Ranger the appropriate stance.
When it comes to bringing some civilization along for the ride, a Yakima tent, portable refrigerator, and air compressor are all on board. There’s also a Ford Performance recovery kit by WARN Industries in case things get dicey.
Making it all go is a 2.3L inline four-cylinder EcoBoost engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Feeding the ‘four is an RTR snorkel kit, while a new Ford Performance cat-back exhaust with black chrome tips spits spent gasses. There are a few goodies inside as well, such as new floor liners, a first aid kit, and an RTR dash plaque, the latter of which is signed by Vaughn Gittin Jr.
