    Ranger MS – RT coming soon

    The exclusive Ranger MS -RT will soon be arriving at Brake’s forecourt. There will only be 200 made for the UK – Make sure you keep up to date with the latest news on their arrival!

    Keep me informed here.

    Ford have announced an exclusive new model of the award-winning Ranger pick-up developed in partnership with vehicle design specialists MS-RT, combining a stunning motorsport-inspired appearance with a premium specification and unique, hand-finished detailing.

    The new Ranger MS-RT offers customers a high-end, street-focused version of Europe’s best-selling pick-up that sits alongside the desert-race-influenced Ford Ranger Raptor at the pinnacle of the Ranger line-up. The new vehicle is derived from the Ranger Wildtrak, sharing its generous equipment, one-tonne payload and choice of Super Cab or Double Cab body styles. The exclusive Ranger MS-RT will be available from Ford dealers in select European markets from summer 2021.

    Imposing appearance, refined details

    Ranger MS-RT’s unique exterior includes a hand-built front fascia featuring a honeycomb carbon fibre-effect grille and integrated fog lights. The striking side profile adds to the sporty character while 20-inch OZ Racing alloy wheels, extended wheel arches and sculpted side skirts create a purposeful stance. Frozen White, Sea Grey or Agate Black paints emphasise the imposing styling, embellished by carbon fibre-effect mirror caps, an aerodynamic load bar and MS‑RT badges.

    The Ranger MS-RT cabin features premium leather trim with contrast orange stitching. Ambient lighting and heated front seats create a comfortable environment, while MS-RT detailing for floor mats and scuff plates adds a bespoke feel. Ford’s SYNC 3 connectivity and navigation system 1 with 8-inch touchscreen simplifies access to communication and entertainment features, and the rear-view camera 2 helps when parking or hitching to a trailer.

    Ford’s range-topping Bi-turbo 213 PS 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine 3 delivers outstanding performance and pulling power while also offering car-like refinement and optimised fuel efficiency.

    Fitted with the advanced 10‑speed automatic transmission shared with the Ford Mustang sports car, the powertrain delivers 213 PS and 500 Nm of torque to move payloads of up to 1,098 kg 4 and a towing weight of 3,500 kg. 5 Ranger’s selectable four-wheel drive system is retained for optimum traction off-road, while a Maxhaust app-controlled soundbox is available as a dealer-fit option for customers desiring a sporty soundtrack.

    MS-RT is a Qualified Vehicle Modifier working with established Ford motorsport partner M-Sport, applying World Rally Championship-winning experience to create strikingly modified versions of Ford’s market-leading commercial vehicles.

    Quotes

    “Ranger MS-RT is designed for customers who value Ranger’s hard-working capability but want the racing pedigree and hand-finished exclusivity of our MS-RT series. This eye-catching vehicle blends Ford’s decades of success in pick-up trucks with striking motorsport-inspired design to offer a road-focused truck combining immense kerb appeal with the hard-working ability that our customers love.”

    Brendan Lyne, director, Commercial Vehicles, Ford of Europe.

    All – New Ford Kuga PHEV

    The best of both worlds

    Wherever the destination, the All-New Kuga Plug-in Hybrid uses two sources of power to get you there more efficiently. An advanced electric powertrain lets you make shorter trips of up to 35miles on zero emissions††, and can recharge anywhere you have access to mains power. For longer journeys, the conventional combustion engine ensures you can go as far as you need to, using powersplit technology to help recharge the Hybrid battery as you drive. While energy captured through regenerative braking also helps to extend your electric range even further.

    Kuga Plug-in Hybrid is available to order for 2021 delivery.
