Have you heard the news? The Speciality Equipment Market Association has released the 2019 Ford Ranger's computer-aided design and 3D scan data. This means that the automotive aftermarket (which is responsible for the manufacturing, remanufacturing, distribution, and installation of all vehicle parts and accessories after the sale by the original producer) can begin to create the various custom apparatus'. The useful information can be accessed through SEMA’s Tech Transfer program. Initially, the only material attainable at this time will be the 4×4 and 4×2 suspension, brakes, exhaust, frame, engine, air intake, front and back fascias, and the cargo bed.
For those of us not in the business, we can get our hands on an actual Ranger XLT. It’s a mid-size pickup that’s a cut above the rest - literally and figuratively. The truck sits tall and mighty with a wheelbase of 126.8 inches and all-season 17-inch tires. Further, it also comes standard with such perks as privacy glass and a rear defogger. The latter is an electrical heating grid that helps maintain visibility by clearing snow, ice, humidity, etc. so you can drive safely no matter what the temperature is.
