Ford Ranger Thunder 2020: first look at Ford's special edition pick-up truck reimagined

Exterior details include 18-inch black alloy wheels, 3D-effect Thunder detailing on the wings and tailgate, a bespoke 'sea grey' paint and red highlights Copyright: Other 3rd Party The Ford Ranger had its best-ever year in 2019 in Europe and Ford sold over 16,000 pick-ups in the UK alone. With an RRP of GBP32,965 (excluding VAT), the Ranger Thunder is based on the Ranger Wildtrak series and Ford says it combines high specification, optimised load-hauling and tough four-wheel drive capability with 'an edgier look'.

Powered by Ford's bi-turbo 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine and paired with the same 10-speed automatic transmission used across much of the Ford performance range, it's the familiar Ranger recipe under the bonnet, but Ford hopes it will win fans with its distinctive appearance. Here's a first look at the new special edition model. Sea Grey paint, red highlights, a bespoke grille and a sports hoop give it a 'tough and distinctive design' say Ford
