The Ford Ranger now has a motorsport-inspired version developed in partnership with vehicle design specialists MS-RT.
Built around the popular Wildtrak model, the Ranger MS-RT shares the same equipment list but adds bespoke detailing inside and out.
The Ranger’s front end has been replaced with a hand-built fascia featuring a carbon-fibre-effect honeycomb grille, with fog lights integrated into the lower grilles. Gently extended wheel arches cover 20-inch OZ Racing alloy wheels, while sculpted side skirts create a sporting dynamic. Detail highlights include carbon fibre-effect door mirror caps, an aerodynamic sports bar and bold MS-RT badging around the truck.
Premium leather trim with contrast orange stitching dominates the interior. The cabin also receives ambient lighting and heated front seats to create a more luxurious space, while MS-RT hand-finished detailing, and bespoke floor mats and scuff plates add some rugged protection.
Power is still provided by Ford’s 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine, developing 213hp and 500Nm of torque. That’s mated to a 10‑speed automatic transmission, as you’ll find across various Ranger models. A Maxhaust app-controlled soundbox is available as a dealer-fit option for customers desiring a sporty soundtrack.
Unsurprisingly, towing limits and payloads remain unchanged, with the Ranger MS-RT able to pull 3.5 tonnes and carry a payload of up to 1,098kg. Despite its road-focused character, the MS-RT model retains the Ranger’s selectable four-wheel-drive system.
“Ranger MS-RT is designed for customers who value Ranger’s hard-working capability but want the racing pedigree and hand-finished exclusivity of our MS-RT series”, said Brendan Lyne, commercial vehicles director at Ford of Europe. “This eye-catching vehicle blends Ford’s decades of success in pick-up trucks with striking motorsport-inspired design to offer a road-focused truck combining immense kerb appeal with the hard-working ability that our customers love.”
The Ford Ranger MS-RT is available in Frozen White, Sea Grey or Agate Black, with deliveries expected in the Summer. Ford has yet to reveal pricing details.
