    Ford press release:
    • 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.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'm only a couple of weeks away from ordering mine, and I'm not going to lie - I think I like the black appearance more than the sport appearance. Except that C&D article doesn't show it in Saber, and I can't seem to find it on ford.com's build & configure tool yet.

    Ford really sticking it to their early adopters, eh? Taking delivery on my Ranger, ordered in November, either today or tomorrow and I'd absolutely have gone with this package had it been available then. :curse:

    Guess I'll just stick with my original plan and black it out myself.

    Here's some higher quality images from Ford's internal image database. I saw these last week but didn't want to leak too early!

    This is aggravating. They make it available after I take delivery. Awesome.

    I’m doing that too. Might flexidip spray it though or wrap. I’m not expecting mine to be functional.

    In my opinion, that's what they should have offered in the Sport Package. Black looks a lot better IMO than magnetic as a contrast. As for me, I chose the Chrome package on the Platinum White. No regrets

    That's why they make different options--I think the sports trim looks much better, and I didn't even like that enough to order it.

    I like how the black package adds body colored bumpers with the black accents. I feel the sport package should have had body colored bumpers as well. The magnetic color seems to me to be more of an off road package kind of color treatment.

    Tastes change over time. There was a time when I would have wanted this. Now, not so much. I understand the frustration of a few here who would have like to order the option. I have a feeling I'm going to feel that same frustration next year if they come with new color choices.

    Agreed, couple years ago I would’ve definitely went for this but I like the contrast of what I have now .. them wheels alone are terrible .. now if they added heated steering wheels I would be upset lol
