The Ford Ranger Tremor is an upcoming off-road oriented midsize truck that is expected to take the fight to the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 and Jeep Gladiator sometime next year. But if you can’t wait for it, Roush has something that may pique your interest. Simply called the Roush Ranger, it’s a visual stunner, and loaded with trail-ready hardware to venture into the deep unknown of the wilderness. Or a weekend camping spot. Choose your own adventure.
The off-road highlights of the Roush Ranger consist of a Fox 2.0 Performance Suspension System co-developed by Roush, General Tire 32-inch Grabber ATX tires, Roush 18-inch satin black wheels, a leveling kit, suspension tuning, and a dual-tip performance cat-back exhaust system. Separating it from common Rangers from a visual standpoint is a signature “ROUSH” grille with dual LED light bars and Magnetic Gray painted Fender Flares with integrated accent lighting. On the side there’s custom fender vent badging, “ROUSH” graphics around the vehicle, and “ROUSH” puddle lamps.
The interior of the Roush Ranger features premium leather with quilted stitching and embroidered headrests, unique gauges, branded floor liners, serialized interior badging, a certificate of authenticity and Roush-branded “R” key fobs.
The base price for this package is – get ready – $12,750 on top of the standard Ford Ranger required to build it from. The configurator is loaded with options, too, such as a $3,200 sport bar with lights, various body graphics, storage vaults, and an off-road utility kit. Customers would still have to go buy a Ford Performance chip tune separately to add on any power to their Roush Ranger. In theory, you could have one of these adventure-ready trucks for a minimum of $36,860. But that’s nearly $6,000 less than a Colorado ZR2, and roughly $3,000 more than a base Jeep Gladiator, if you’re wondering.
