Adventure

ADVENTURE READY.

The new Ford Ranger is perfectly at home on typical everyday paved roads. But going from mild to wild where smooth pavement comes to an end — now we’re talking Ranger territory. With its high-strength steel frame, steel frame-mounted bumpers, off-road chassis components and EcoBoost® power, every Ranger is bred for adventure. And for the serious all-terrain enthusiast, there’s the Ranger outfitted with all the must-have features in the FX4 Off-Road Package.

4X4 ELECTRONIC SHIFT-ON-THE-FLY

Shifting into four-wheel drive is as easy as turning a dial with the electronic shift-on-the-fly (ESOF) system. ESOF lets you choose two four-wheel-drive modes (4x4 high or low), as well as two-wheel drive for travel on dry paved surfaces.

FX4 OFF-ROAD PACKAGE

Serious off-roaders know what they need to get max fun out of every adventure. And it’s all in the FX4 Off-Road Package: Tuned off-road monotube shocks. All-terrain tires with aggressive tread. Traction-enhancing electronic-locking rear differential. Exposed steel front bash plate. Heavy-duty front skid plate. Skid plates for the electric power-assist steering (EPAS) electric motor, transfer case and fuel tank. And inside, a cluster screen provides feedback on pitch and roll plus steering angle. Included also are the Terrain Management System and Trail Control providing essential off-road technology.

TERRAIN MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Advanced technology provides an added measure of control, on or off the road. The Terrain Management System (included in the FX4 Off-Road Package) has four selectable drive modes. Choose Normal, Grass, Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts, or Sand. The system, shifting on the fly, automatically calibrates engine responsiveness, transmission gearing and vehicle control systems to provide the optimum traction, driveability and performance.

TRAIL CONTROL

Trail Control (included in the FX4 Off-Road Package) is a driver-activated control system that helps you navigate more easily over rough terrain. It manages throttle and braking at individual wheels while maintaining a constant speed between one and 20 mph. So you can focus all your attention on the thrill of steering over the demanding terrain.
