That said, the Ranger Thunder or something similar – likely with a different name – could make its way Down Under at a later stage, with a Ford Australia spokesperson declining to comment on its chances.
Either way, the Ranger Thunder slides in between the Wildtrak and Raptor, and brings with it an aggressive take on the dual-cab ute.
The Ranger Thunder is fitted with a black powder-coated Mountain Top retractable tonneau cover.
Finished in Sea Grey paintwork, the Ranger Thunder is fitted with a unique set of 18-inch alloy wheels, which are Ebony Black in colour alongside the mesh grille, foglight surrounds, skid plates, side-mirror caps, doorhandles, sports bar and rear bumper.
Red accents adorn the mesh grille and sports bar alongside the three-dimensional ‘Thunder’ badges, which are found on the front doors and tailgate. The latter also has matte-black ‘Ranger’ lettering.
Darkened LED headlight and tail-light bezels are also fitted alongside a bedliner, a tub divider and a black powder-coated Mountain Top retractable tonneau cover.
Inside, the Ranger Thunder has full Ebony leather upholstery on its seats, which also feature red stitching and embroidered ‘Thunder’ logos. The former is also used on the steering wheel and dashboard, among other touchpoints.
Red illuminated scuff plates and black floor mats round out the interior upgrades.
