Ford is introducing the new Ranger FX2 Package as another choice for customers who want off-road styling and capability in a two-wheel-drive offering.
Aimed at more urban markets, the FX2 Package rides on 17- or available 18-inch off-road tires to add tougher styling to a two-wheel-drive Ranger. A front underbody guard and air dam-delete shield the underbody and improve approach angles.
Adding to Ranger’s two-wheel-drive capability, the FX2 Package includes an electronic-locking rear differential and off-road-tuned suspension for increased traction and performance off-road. Ford’s off-road cluster screen allows drivers to see pitch, roll and yaw in real time.
Ford says demand for Ranger personalization options has been on the rise. Two in every three buyers are opting for a Sport Appearance Package, Chrome Appearance Package or STX Appearance Package, while one in every three selects the FX4 Off-Road Package. More than half of Ranger buyers opt for the Trailer Tow Package, Ford adds.
Ranger offers a variety of packages and options, including the new Black Appearance Package with black accents and high-gloss black wheels, the Sport Appearance Package with Magnetic Gray-painted accents and unique wheels and the Chrome Appearance Package with chrome body accents and bright chrome wheels.
FX2 is the latest addition to Ranger’s capability offerings, which include the Trailer Tow Package with a 4-pin/7-pin wiring harness and Class IV trailer hitch receiver and the FX4 Off-Road Package featuring an electronic locking rear differential and Terrain Management System with Trail Control.
