Limited Ford Ranger Black Edition pick-up truck revealed

The Ford Ranger pick-up truck gets a dark makeover, and it's coming to Frankfurt later this month

Ford has revealed a new special edition pick-up truck – a Black Edition Ranger, which will be on show at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this month.

It’s based on the Ranger in Limited specification, but boasts a blacked out look thanks to an extensive de-chroming job. The body is finished in ‘Absolute Black’ with a black finish on the radiator grille, while the alloy wheels, rollover bars and exterior detailing is also all-black.

In the cabin, the Black Edition trucks benefit from a Ford SYNC 3 multimedia and infotainment system, fronted by an eight-inch touchscreen display. Satellite navigation is included, while dual-zone climate control, leather seats and interior upholstery, and power-folding, heated door mirrors are also added.

The Black Edition is only available as a double-cab pick-up truck only. Engines have not been confirmed, but it should be available with either diesel currently offered on the Ranger Limited - an entry-level 158bhp 2.2-litre unit, or a 197bhp 3.2-litre five-cylinder.

UK prices have not been confirmed, but expect a slight premium over the £29,649 (including VAT) price of the standard double cab Ranger Limited when it arrives on sale after the Frankfurt show, limited to 2,500 units.
