As Ford Authority reported yesterday, the 2022 Ford Ranger Splash Package is bringing back a 1990s favorite, offering an array of styling upgrades for FoMoCo’s mid-size pickup. But while the Splash Package will be available for XLT and Lariat SuperCrew Rangers throughout the 2022 model year, the Ford Ranger Splash Limited Edition is more of a small batch offering that will feature a number of unique colors, each produced in very small quantities.
As fans of the original Ranger Splash likely recall, that compact, Flareside pickup was available in a variety of unique colors as well, so the new Ford Ranger Splash Limited Edition pays homage to its predecessor in more ways than one. Ford hasn’t revealed what sort of unique shades it has planned for this special model, though it did say that the Snow Edition – presumably a white hue of some sort – will be the first in this series.
Every few months throughout the year, Ford will reveal a new Splash Limited Edition pickup, each sporting its own one-of-a-kind color. Only a few hundred of each will be produced in total, essentially making it an instant collectible of sorts. Ford says that the Splash Limited Edition will feature “a unique combination of exterior and interior content and finishes,” as well as matte black 18-inch wheels, but didn’t divulge any additional information about what makes these pickups different from those equipped with the Splash Package.
The Ranger Splash Package retails for $1,495 and includes black and orange bodyside graphics, orange grille nostrils, unique 18-inch, 12-spoke matte black wheels, and gloss black accents for the grille, rearview mirror caps, bumpers, fender vents, and wheel lip moldings. The Splash Package can also be combined with the FX2 or FX4 packages for those seeking additional off-road capability.
Inside, the 2022 Ranger Splash Package is equipped with unique seats with carbon grain, tuxedo stripes, and orange contrast stitching, which will also feature leather trim on Lariat models. Lariats also get orange contrast stitching on the dash and armrests, while all Splash Package-equipped pickups gain the same bright-colored stitching on the steering wheel, parking brake boot, and shifter.
Deliveries of the Ranger Splash are expected to begin later this year, and we should know more about the Splash Limited Edition in the coming months.
