2019 Ford Ranger Black Pack Lariat Super Crew

  • Ranger buyers now have another choice to customize their truck with the new Black Appearance Package; more than two-thirds of all-new 2019 Ford Ranger pickups flying out of showrooms are optioned with an appearance package
  • Ranger Black Appearance Package features an aggressive look with a black grille, running boards, accented wheels and more, making body colors like Hot Pepper Red and Lightning Blue pop
  • Ranger fans can order the Black Appearance Package for their trucks now, with deliveries starting in early summer
DEARBORN, Mich., March 25, 2019 – With the all-new Ford Ranger off to a strong start since the first trucks went on sale in January, Ford is already introducing a new Black Appearance Package, helping buyers further customize their Ranger to match their unique personal style.
More than two-thirds of all-new Ranger pickups are leaving showrooms optioned with either the Sport Appearance Package that adds unique wheels and Magnetic Gray-painted accents, or the Chrome Appearance Package with bright chrome wheels and chrome body accents.
The new Black Appearance Package gives Ranger customers a bold and stylish new option.
“Like the rest of their gear, Ranger customers are choosing the option that best fits their adventures,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager. “Having the right gear matters and so does the right look. The Black Appearance Package adds aggressive style to the adventures our customers embark on.”
Available with any Ranger body color, the Black Appearance Package’s aggressive look will help the truck stand out on the beach or in the backcountry. Its standard features include:
  • Black-painted grille
  • Body-color bumpers
  • High-gloss black-painted 18-inch aluminum wheels with black center caps
  • Black running boards
  • Black spray-in bed liner
  • Black fender vent surround
  • Black mirrors
  • Black sill plate
  • Black bash plate on FX4 Off-Road Package
  • Black lower valance
The Ranger Black Appearance Package is available as an option for $1,995 (excludes taxes) and can be ordered at dealers now, with deliveries targeted to begin in early summer.
Built Ford Tough and ready for adventure
In addition to individual style, the all-new Ford Ranger answers the call from 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.
Inside, Ranger blends comfort and functionality with room for up to five people, their gear and accessories. The center stack includes an 8-inch touch screen for the available SYNC® 3 system, while the instrument cluster features productivity screens for real-time vehicle and audio information plus available navigation.
Ranger incorporates advanced passenger convenience and connectivity features, plus smart driver-assist technologies including standard automatic emergency braking. Ford Co-Pilot360™ technologies like Lane-Keeping System and class-exclusive Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage are standard on XLT and Lariat trim levels. Additional driver-assist technologies including adaptive cruise control and forward and reverse sensing systems are available on both XLT and Lariat.

My credo
Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
IMO this should be a NO COST option. First they charge more for chrome package, then they charge extra for the "no chrome" SPORT package, then they charge $1,995 for chrome delete, they're calling it a "BLACK" package. WTF
I think this is the ONLY option for ANY trim level. So even the most basic of Rangers (XL)can get this "package" or you can spend 12 at O'rielly's for a can of black plastic dip and get the same look. I did ask for something like the "midnight" option that Nissan offers, but this seems a little lame.

I agree.
$1550 is way too much.
Buy aftermarket stuff and make yours look even better.

"Black" Package - Just another lie perpetrated by the man.

It would be nice to get chrome bumpers without a chrome everything. Black out does look sharp though... just not for me.

I told Ford they should hire me to connect the Engineers with the truck enthusiasts.

I bought the black out special. XL It is less expensive and gives you a blank slate for your own style. Camo skirts, brighter fog lights, pink wheels (just kidding) but ,you get the idea.

The Black Appearance package doesn't work very well on the build site.

Always question authority
I spec'ed one out on the Build and Price in dark gray with the Black Appearnace Package in the XLT 302A Supercab FX4. Looked sharp! Had a very dark, and aggressive look to it without being monochrome. Expensive as he** though at over $41k! (To this cheapskate redneck, that's expensive) I don't think I'd buy one though, I'm too much of a sucker for chrome.:p

Add another 5k to that and you can get a 727hp mustang with the catback ford racing exhaust gt premium and performance package.

Yet ? There isn't going to be a manual transmission and isn't going to be one in the Bronco or Gladiator. Have you been hiding in the woods a while ?
