Ford already confirmed that we aren’t getting the new Ranger Raptor and now it’s unveiled another cool Ranger that the US won’t get either. The Ford Ranger Storm concept debuted at the Sao Paulo Motor Show this week, but if Ford does give it the green light, don’t plan on it coming here.
The Ford Ranger Storm concept is ready for an off-roading adventure with its mudguards, snorkel, ceiling rack with LED lighting, off-road bumpers, extra body cladding and side rails. At the front it features a blacked out grille with the name Storm flashed across it.
Although the Ranger Storm does look almost as tough as the Ranger Raptor, it’s actually based on the softer Limited trim level. Under the hood the Ranger Storm is powered by a 3.2L diesel engine with 200 horsepower, that’s mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Ford hasn’t announced any production plans for the Ranger Storm, but if it does, it’s likely that it will only be sold in South America. Either way, Ford did kick off production of the 2019 Ranger last month in Michigan, so it’s almost here!
