The novelty of the 2020 model year boasts good off-road capabilities. Key enhancements include an electronically-locked rear differential and off-road suspension.

The current generation (codenamed T6) of the American Ford Ranger compact pickup has been on the market for many years. And even the version of the car, related to the 2019 model year, is already in dire need of updating – this is exactly what the owners of these pickups claim. And finally, the automaker decided to present another special version for the truck, which increases its off-road capabilities.

The upgraded pickup was called Ford Ranger FX2 – in fact, it is almost the same performance as the FX4. That’s just the FX2 is designed only for front-wheel drive versions of the car

In addition to the branded sticker on the body (on the sides of the loading platform), the car received some important improvements, such as a suspension set for off-road suspension and a differential with electronic lock. In addition, there are 17- or 18-inch wheels on which off-road tires are “fastened”, and there is underbody protection in front.

Ford has also made a small change in the cabin, where the instrument cluster now includes a special off-road section that provides the driver with useful information. The driver will have access to real-time pitch, roll and yaw details.

Ford already takes orders for a 2WD Ranger equipped with the FX2 package and asks for an additional $ 595 for this pickup version, while the aforementioned FX4 package with 4WD costs $ 1,295. Deliveries of machines to customers are scheduled for the end of the year.
