Ford’s Overlanding Ranger Concepts Will Make You Forget the Ranger Raptor

October 27, 2019 Cars By

As you may not be surprised to learn, overlanding and off-roading have been two of the strongest market forces behind the midsize truck segment‘s resurgence. This fact has not inspired Ford to bring the Ranger Raptor sold abroad to America. But the company has heard the call for aggressive pickup truck modification: Ford added a dealer-installed lift kit to the Ranger’s options suite in September.

That pales in comparison to these new rigs, however. The company will also display five overlanding-modified Rangers (and one street-oriented model) at the 2019 SEMA show in November. None has a V6, of course, but all will have you itching to hit the trail. Check out those off-road-ready Rangers below below.

RTR Rambler Ranger


The RTR Rambler Ranger is an overlanding vehicle that includes a two-inch lift, a SkyRise roof tent and an integrated snowboard support capsule, among other features.

Yakima Ford Ranger


This Ranger, produced with Yakima, is an overlander outfitted with racks for all manner of outdoor sports equipment.

Advanced Accessories Concepts Ford Ranger


The Advanced Accessories Concepts Ford Ranger is another overlander with a 3.5-inch lift, an array of armor plating on the underbelly and a 50-quart refrigerator.

Hellwig Ford Ranger


The Hellwig Ford Ranger is for the eco-conscious performance truck enthusiast — if that’s not an oxymoron — and includes a Goal Zero solar power system to help off-set the carbon footprint you accrued getting to the campsite.

Ford Performance Parts Ranger

This Ford Performance Parts Ranger includes — you guessed it — a range of Ford Performance Parts add-ons, including the aforementioned two-inch lift kit.

The Tjin Edition Ranger


Designers Neil and Collin Tjin created a slammed, pavement-oriented Ranger lowered on an air suspension. It’s no good for off-roading, but it sure looks distinctive.
