The Ford Ranger Black Edition has joined the best-selling ute’s already wide lineup, bringing greater value to buyers of the entry-level dual-cab.

    Based on the Ford Ranger XL 4×4 dual-cab bi-turbo ute, the Black Edition is limited to just 1500 examples, with Australian deliveries due to start between now and the end of September 2024.

    Priced from $56,680 before on-road costs, its list price is $2300 dearer than the grade upon which it’s based.

    However, it wears a nationwide drive-away price of $57,990 drive-away when finished in the no-cost Arctic White paint, making it between $1851 and $4292 cheaper than its XL counterpart.

    In addition to the standard equipment from the Ranger XL, the Black Edition is fitted with a black sports bar, drop-in bed liner with a 12V socket, Asphalt Black 17-inch alloy wheels (shod in all-terrain tyres), black side steps, and a unique Asphalt Black grille with Bolder Grey inserts.

    It’s powered by a 2.0-litre bi-turbo four-cylinder diesel engine which produces 154kW of power and 500Nm of torque, mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and part-time four-wheel drive system.

    All Ford Ranger variants boast a braked towing capacity of 3500kg.

    Buyers can continue to add the Ranger XL’s optional extras to the Black Edition, including prestige paint (Meteor Grey, Aluminium and Shadow Black) for $700, as well as a Towing Pack for $1900 and a manual roller shutter for $3000.
