The existence of the new Ranger Tremor raises the lineup to a best-in-class maximum towing capacity of 7,500 lbs.
This year the Ranger also launches a new STX Special Edition package, which adds in an 8-inch SYNC® 3 touchscreen, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, dual-zone climate control, silver-painted interior accents, and 18-inch black-painted wheels.
The 2021 Ford Ranger premiers with new colors Cactus Gray, Carbonized Gray, Cyber Orange, and Velocity Blue, plus returning options Shadow Black, Iconic Silver, Oxford White, Race Red, and Rapid Red.
