New limited Edition Ford Ranger Thunder pick-up launched

The special edition Ford Ranger Thunder pick-up truck features fresh paint, larger alloys and a rugged cosmetic overhaul

Ford has launched a limited edition version of the Ranger pick-up truck in the UK. Called the Ford Ranger Thunder, it adds a brace of cosmetic upgrades to the range-topping Wildtrak model. Production will be limited to just 1,400 units, with each example being priced from £32,965 excluding VAT. First deliveries are expected to arrive towards the end of summer this year.

Styling revisions over the standard Ford Ranger include new 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlamps, darkened tail lights, fresh “Thunder” badges for the front doors and tailgate and new red radiator grilles. Ford has also fitted black replacements for the pick-up’s bumpers, skid plates, fog lamp surrounds and door handles.

Inside, buyers get ebony leather upholstery with the Thunder logo embroidered into the front backrests, as well as contrasting red stitching across all the cabin trim. Black floor mats are also included as standard, along with an eight-inch infotainment system and a set of unique tread plates, which are backlit in red.

As an optional extra, buyers can spec a powder-coated Mountain Top roller cover for the load bed. The system also comes with a divider, which allows owners to split the bed into two smaller sections – which prevents items from rolling around the bed.

It’s powered by Ford’s twin-turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder EcoBlue diesel engine, which develops 210bhp and 500Nm of torque. Like the standard Ranger, power is sent to all four wheels via a 10-speed automatic gearbox – and Ford says the powertrain will deliver WLTP fuel economy figures of 31.0mpg and emissions ratings of 239g/km of CO2.
