Ford Performance and ARB Developing Winch-Ready Bumper for Ranger

Ford Performance and ARB 4×4 Accessories have announced that they’re teaming up to build off-road accessories and parts for Ford vehicles, which can only mean plenty of great things to come if you love getting down and dirty. The first of those great things: a winch-ready bumper for Ranger pickups, which you’ll be able to have installed right here at Shults Ford Lincoln Wexford starting next year.

For just $1,495 MSRP, you can purchase a winch-capable bumper for the Ford Ranger from Ford Performance Parts. Built using 3/16-inch-thick welded sheet steel and featuring an Integrit® powder coat finish, the bumper mounts directly to the chassis mounting points of the Ranger and works with bumper-mounted safety accessories.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg. Ford and ARB will team up for future parts and accessories for Ford trucks and SUVs. Here’s hoping that will include the new Ford Bronco, which is set to break cover at last next spring.

“The goal of the relationship between ARB and Ford Performance is to provide Ford customers premium and functional off-road accessories that inspire personalized vehicle customization, improve off-road capability, and empower customers to feel comfortable using their vehicles —  even in remote areas,” said Lachlan McCann, ARB chief operating officer.

All-New Ford Ranger Radar Makes Towing Simple

When you’re looking for the perfect pickup truck to fit your needs, it’s likely you want one that will make it easy to tow your boat, trailer, or RV. Luckily, that’s where the Ford Ranger comes into the picture. This brand-new addition to the Ford lineup will be going on sale early next year, and it’s set to provide you with some innovative towing technology that’s sure to make life a whole lot easier.

This new Ford Ranger radar technology uses the truck’s class-exclusive Blind Spot Information System to essentially provide you with an extra pair of eyes when you’re behind the wheel. When a trailer is hooked up to your Ford Ranger, cameras near the truck’s taillights help monitor blind spots all the way to the back of the trailer, letting you know when there’s a vehicle in your blind spots.

Furthermore, if you happen to have more than one trailer, the system can save up to three trailer profiles so your truck knows to provide you with warnings whenever another vehicle is driving past you.

When you don’t have a trailer attached to your truck, the Blind Spot Information System will let you know when vehicles are in your blind spots as it normally would. It will also let you know of any obstacles behind you when you’re backing out of a parking spot.

This Ford Ranger radar and Blind Spot Information System come standard on the Ranger XLT and Lariat trim levels. Learn more about the upcoming Ford Ranger and its incredible tech when you speak with our team here at Shults Ford Lincoln Wexford.
