Officially, The MS-RT Ranger Is Set To Be Available In Europe, But Not North America

Ford Ranger MS-RT

Ford is bringing back the street truck by introducing the MS-RT trim for the Ranger line. Though it’s unavailable in North America, and many other trims for the Ford Ranger, we don’t see why it wouldn’t eventually come to our shores. Ford recently uploaded a walkaround video to its YouTube channel. It offers a closer look at the MS-RT Ranger with its glorious sporty accents and design queues to help it stand out amongst the other Rangers on the road.

Ford Ranger MS-RT: Details

From the interior to the exterior, no part of the Ford Ranger MS-RT has been left untouched by the truck’s sportier design queues. With a unique interior, beautiful blue stitching accents the entirety of the car, along with special seats with MS-RT badging, it’ll be difficult to say this isn’t a unique pickup. However, the exterior is where the truck truly grabs the attention, with sculpted side skirts that lower the overall stance of the vehicle and a distinctive rear bumper with an integrated diffuser. The tailgate is paired with a ducktail spoiler; if that wasn’t sporty enough, there’s even a cab spoiler on the truck. However, this combination is for more than just show, as it has been found to assist with overall aerodynamic balance and enhance high-speed stability.

The truck also features exclusive diamond-cut 21-inch wheels, which use low-profile 275/45 R21 tires for better on-road performance. These are not only the largest wheels ever offered on a Ford Ranger, but they are a standout piece for the truck and look spectacular. The truck doesn’t sacrifice anything despite its sportier design; with all the capability of the standard Ranger, it can tow, haul, and take on an assortment of terrains, though you should be more mindful about ground clearance.

The Ford Ranger MS-RT was created in collaboration between Ford’s global team and the specialists at MS-RT, an offshoot of Ford’s rally partner M-Sport, to deliver a unique combination of dramatic motorsport-inspired looks, an enhanced driving experience, and outstanding load-carrying capability. Using Ford’s potent 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine producing 237 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque, you’ll have plenty of power on tap. An interesting mention within the walkaround video is the announcement that Ford will be bringing a hybrid version of the Ranger sometime this year, so stay tuned for that.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
