    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. 14, 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.

    @DannyL it's only $595, compared to $395 for just the electronic locking rear differential.

    I see that!!
    This is an awesome deal!!!!!
    I am not a fan of those 17" rims though.
    Would much rather have the stock Lariat rims.
    Maybe I can work out something with my dealer??
    If I can I will go for it

    LOL mine too. Although I don't care much for the Magnetic trim pieces. I prefer the chrome package because it's not usual to see them. The only thing I didn't get and wanted was a rear locker. Well maybe next time LOL.... Early adopters blues come quickly LOL

    I believe you need to order the STX package in order to get the FX2 package...
    If you look on the Spec sheet

    Only with the XL trim, it's available on the XLT or Lariat without extra packages.

    A little more spendy if your starting point is the base model. According to the 2020 Order Guide, FX2 on the XL requires the STX package, which is $995 on the 2019. STX requires adding 101A, which is $1135 for the 2019.

    EDIT: looks like surflink and rangerdanger posted this same info as I was typing.

    Yeah, Rangerdanger knows what I am looking at...
    Lariat Supercab 2wd. 500A tech package, tow package and electronic rear locker

    I'm inquiring about getting the FX2 package without any of the sport appearance package stuff.
    Right now it appears that is part of the package.
    At $595 it is a whale of a good deal!
    I see a lot of these being sold.

    So different tires, air dam delete and an extra gauge? I like the way it looks but it doesn't seem a ton different than my XLT Sport...what am I missing?
