Ford Introduces Sporty Ranger FX2 Package, Adding Off-Road Style, Capability to Two-Wheel-Drive Trucks

* As more customers prioritize truck customization and capability options, Ford is enabling Ranger buyers to take their two-wheel-drive truck to the next level with a new FX2 Package

* Ranger FX2 Package sports tough styling and capability upgrades with an electronic-locking rear differential, off-road tires, off-road-tuned suspension, front underbody guard and Ford’s off-road cluster screen

* Ranger fans can order the FX2 Package for their trucks now, with deliveries starting in late 2019

DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 13, 2019 – 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.

“FX2 expands Ranger’s options for customers who want tough, off-road style with the functionality of a locking differential but don’t need four-wheel drive,” said Brian Bell, Ford Ranger marketing manager. “This is another way our customers can personalize Ranger to match their lifestyle while getting a great value.” Aimed at more urban markets, the FX2 Package rides on 17- or available 18-inch off-road tires to add even tougher styling to two-wheel-drive Ranger. A front underbody guard and air dam-delete provide even more distinction, while shielding the underbody and improving 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 adds to the FX2 experience inside, where drivers can see pitch, roll and yaw in real time.

Tough looks, not tough choices

Demand for Ranger personalization options continues to increase, with two in every three buyers opting for a Sport Appearance Package, Chrome Appearance Package or STX
Appearance Package, while one in every three selects the FX4 Off-Road Package. Over half of Ranger buyers are choosing the Trailer Tow Package.

“We’re seeing sales trends that tell us to grow Ranger’s capability and appearance options even further,” said Chad Callander, Ford Ranger consumer marketing manager. “The FX2 Package is a result of us listening to our customers and what they’re demanding from their trucks.”

Ranger offers a wide 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.

It all starts with Built Ford Tough Ford Ranger answers the call of truck customers looking for an affordable, rugged and maneuverable midsize pickup that’s Built Ford Tough. Torture-tested alongside Ford F-150 trucks, Ranger quality starts with a high-strength steel frame backbone, proven Ford-built 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine and class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission. Great features like a standard 4G LTE modem with Wi-Fi for up to 10 devices and an array of available dealer-
installed accessories make Ranger a perfect partner for every adventure.

“What’s most important for our customers is that any personalization offering starts with Built Ford Tough DNA,” said Callander. “You know Ranger is going to live up to Ford’s proven truck standards, however you customize it.”

The FX2 Package is available for $595 (excludes taxes) and can be ordered at dealers now, with deliveries expected in late 2019.

Sorry, I know @85_Ranger4x4 already posted something about this. I didn't get a heads up that this media release was going to be coming out, and didn't receive it until today. Even if it's already been mentioned here, I still share official releases if I get them.

I need more sleep.
I approve, but I still want to see screaming yellow make a comeback and I'd like a V6.

I was at a McDonald's last night and an older guy came in, walked up to me, and asked me if that was my Ranger. He wanted to know two things:

1) Do I work for Ford. HA! ;missingteeth;
2) Is Ford going to put a V6 in it, because he wants a new Ranger, but wants a V6.

isnt this what the “edge” package was at first? (then they offered 4x4 which was confusing because the edge was “supposed “ to be. 2wd with the look of a 4wd)

FX2 would make a good work truck for those who don’t need 4X4 but want more than an unlimited slip differential.

The Edge model was more than just looking like a 4x4 - I believe they incorporated fender flares, body color bumpers front and rear, front foglights in the lower valance, the Edge decals, torsion bar front suspension unlike the coil sprung XLT's, molded plastic bed rails, vinyl flooring, class III trailer tow package, as well as the powerdome hood and honeycomb style grille. Of course, I could be wrong about some of that and left out other details...

In other words, everything I like/want in a Ranger except a solid front axle and a 5 speed. (5 speeds and the 4.0 were available if special ordered in the 4x4 Edge configuration but are extremely rare in the US - Canada seems to have a lot more of them but they were badged differently)

You can get the locking differential without an FX package.

True. But good luck finding the e-locker in dealer stock already on the lot. This will fix that problem.

There are about as many Ranger Raptors on lots as 2wd's of any kind around here.

I special ordered my truck, so I’m not exactly sure what is on the the lot. It appears that it is mostly upper end models at my local dealership as I drive by.

My guess is that the remark about needing to special order a RWD with a locker in order to get one would be pretty spot on.

So all you see on the lots are 4wd Rangers?

Sorry, i'm a little confused with how you worded the sentence.

Yeah, alluding to the fact that there are no Ranger Raptors in the US.

Pretty much 4x4 country here.
