2019 Ford Ranger Sport joins line-up this month

Ford has added the Ranger Sport to the local line-up this month sitting between the XLS and XLT variants – 600 available.

The 2019 Ford Ranger Sport has gone on-sale this month and sits between the XLS and XLT variants. According to Ford, “The Ranger Sport brings a sports-oriented colour range that sets off its go-anywhere spirit of adventure. In its hero True Red paintwork, Ranger Sport shows off its contrasting black front grille, mirror caps, door handles and black alloy wheels, which at 17-inches are an inch larger than those on Ranger XLS. Sport also sees sidesteps, a matte black sports bar and bedliner as standard, adding to its practicality while bolstering its distinctive looks”.
