2019 Ford Ranger's Sizable Accessories List Leaked

The 2019 Ford Ranger isn’t on sale yet, but the automaker’s already busy gearing up — literally— to ensure it squeezes every possible dime from it. It’s a practice Ford is especially skilled at. Don’t forget that this is the company that can spruce up a $35,000 F-150 SuperCrew and sell it as a luxury model costing more than twice as much to completely satisfied customers — and that’s before anyone taps into the pickup’s comprehensive accessories list.

While its midsize offering was obviously destined to be less expensive than its F-Series stablemates, Ford also hasn’t been quite as aggressive with its pricing between trims. The Ranger Lariat isn’t anywhere near twice the price of the base LT. But once you start configuring (Ford’s been letting customers do this online for a couple months now), you’ll notice that the Ranger is subject to a sizable number of desirable equipment packages. And they’re only the tip of the iceberg, if this new accessories leak is to be believed.

According to the folks at the Ranger5G forums, Ford’s new pickup will bring with it a staggering number of factory accessories with which to temp customers. There are appendages for the exterior, interior, electronics systems, towing setups, off-roading, smoking, safety, security, and cargo. It’s vast and I’d love to see a pickup with the full monty.

Among the most intriguing on the list were the bull bars, Bushwacker fender flares, new 18-inch wheels, hood lettering, and exterior graphics — as we’ve no clue what those items are supposed to look like. Unfortunately, the list was just that and didn’t include glossy, high-definition images of any of these parts.

Ford hasn’t given any confirmation on these items, but the list looks to be authentic. At the very least, there was nothing in it to suggest it might be an elaborate and relatively unfunny prank. It’s also not so extensive that it seems unmanageable. Ford is being thorough with the Ranger, knowing that a lot of people will want to use it as a “lifestyle vehicle” to haul their kayak up to the lake on the weekends. But it’s also offering racks and carriers for skis, paddleboards, skis, snowboards, and adaptors to convert your mounts to work on everything.

Pricing on a large number of accessories is TBD. If you want to see the complete list, mosey over to the Ranger5G forums.

    A couple of things would move the needle for me. First is offering more than one engine option (where's the turbo diesel?), and second is a 6' bed with the SuperCrew.

    In all honesty I would look at ARB, TJM, Ironman products before a Ford sponsored product. They would most likely be cheaper.

  • IBx1 Never got the appeal of these; it looks like there was a Soviet mandate to create a car with two doors and a roof that could be configured in different ways.
  • CAMeyer Considering how many voters will be voting for Trump because they remember that gas prices were low in 2020–never mind the pandemic—this seems like a wise move.
