Ford is unveiling the exclusive new Ranger Black Edition at the Frankfurt Motor Show, offering customers of Europe’s No.1 selling pickup a distinctive new version with a striking colour-coded appearance.
The Black Edition model is based on the popular Limited series, and features a de-chromed body in Absolute Black with a black finish for the radiator grille, alloy wheels, sports bar and exterior detailing. The production run will be restricted to just 2,500 units and will be offered in Double Cab bodystyle only.

“Ranger customers appreciate the vehicle’s tough, go-anywhere capability and its rugged good looks, and we expect this attractive new limited series to be snapped up within weeks,” said Hans Schep, general manager, Commercial Vehicles, Ford of Europe.
