The Ford Ranger remains one of the most popular vehicles to modify these days, and the aftermarket is more than happy to keep cranking out parts and accessories for it. But Ford Performance isn’t slacking in that area either, having most recently released a performance calibration for the mid-size pickup. Now, it’s rolled out three brand new Ranger accessory packages that offer a trio of levels of customization.
The new dealer-installed packages for 2019 and 2020 four-wheel drive Ranger pickups include three levels of hardware, software, and graphics combinations. All three Ranger accessory packages feature an off-road leveling kit including FOX Shocks with optimized Ford Performance tuning, new 17 inch Dyno Gray wheels, and Ford Performance graphics on the bed and windshield.
The Ford Performance Level 1 package includes just those goodies and carries an MSRP price of $2,495, not including installation. Stepping up to the the Ford Performance Level 2 package will set buyers back $4,495, but adds a slew of extras including the following:
- Ford Performance engine calibration, which increases horsepower by 16 percent to 315 at 4,500 RPM and increases torque by nearly 20 percent to 370 pound-feet at 2,500 RPM
- BFGoodrich KO2 265/70-17 tires
- Rigid off-road fog light kit
- Blue tow hooks
- Ford Performance stainless steel license plate frame
The Ford Performance Level 3 package costs $8,995 and includes everything from the Level 2 package, plus the following extras:
- Rigid 40-inch LED lightbar kit
- Red tow hooks
- Ford Performance by ARB winch-capable front bumper
- Ford Performance chase rack
- 2.3-liter Ford Performance sport exhaust
The Ford Performance Level 1 and Level 2 packages will be available for order in August, while the Level 3 package will be available to order next summer.
The Ranger accessory packages are a nice addition to Ford’s ever-growing lineup of parts, which only figures to expand moving forward. The automaker has found that on average, customers added approximately $650 worth of Ford accessories to each Ranger pickup sold in the U.S. in 2019 – the nameplate’s first year returned to the U.S. market. And we can bet that that number will only rise in the coming years.
