Ford’s award-winning pick-up has a new iteration: the MS-RT. This street focused variant of the Ranger will sit alongside the Raptor at the top of the line-up, giving drivers a stylish, intelligent option for all their adventures.
With its motorsport-inspired styling and impressive specification, the Ford Ranger MS-RT knows how to command attention. Its exterior boasts unique features such as a bespoke front fascia that incorporates a carbon-fibre effect grille, as well as 20-inch OZ Racing alloy wheels, extended wheel arches and sculpted side skirts that create a purposeful stance. Bi-xenon headlamps provide optimum visibility in the most challenging circumstances, while roof rails add to the model’s cargo carrying ability. Paint colour options include Frozen White, Sea Grey and Agate Black, all of which add to the vehicle’s imposing appearance.
Step inside the Ranger MS-RT and you’ll find a premium cab that retains the sporty elements of the exterior. The seats are upholstered in leather and feature contrast orange stitching, while ambient lighting helps you set the mood for each journey. The front seats are heated for your convenience, and rear passengers can enjoy plenty of legroom. This edition is only available in DoubleCab configuration in the UK.
Don’t let the athletic looks of the Ranger MS-RT deceive you – its capabilities match those of more rugged variants. Able to carry payloads of up to 1,098kg and boasting a towing weight of 3,500kg, this powerful pick-up is ready for any challenge you throw its way. Under the bonnet is a 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine that is mated to 10-speed automatic transmission and delivers 213PS and 500Nm of torque. Plus, with a selectable four-wheel drive system, you can go off-road whenever the mood takes you.
There’s enough equipment in the Ford Ranger MS-RT to please even the most discerning driver. Convenience features include a Quickclear heated windscreen and eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat, which makes finding the perfect on-road position a breeze. At the wheel, you’ll find access to the SYNC 3 multimedia system easy, with the eight-inch touchscreen display proving intuitive to use. The model is also fitted with a premium infotainment pack, with satellite navigation and a reversing camera included.
Those wanting to have a little extra fun with their Ranger MS-RT can add an app-controlled Maxhaust soundbox. This enables you to make the exhaust note deeper and more rumbly sounding – like that of a sportscar – using your smartphone. There’s also a volume control so the noise can be adapted when driving in residential areas.
