Ford and ARB Team to Give Ranger Winch-Capable Bumper
The new Ford Ranger just keeps on getting better and better. In addition to off-road packages and Yakima accessories galore, the new Ranger is getting a winch-capable front bumper thanks to a new collaboration between Ford Performance and ARB 4×4 Accessories. This addition makes the Ranger even more off-road ready for folks who want to get down and dirty.
“For Ranger customers who want the ultimate adventure gear, a Ford Performance collaboration with ARB is a dream come true,” said Eric Cin, global director, Ford Vehicle Personalization and Accessories. “With 45 years of design and engineering experience in the overlanding and rock-crawling world, ARB is bringing additional options for Ranger customers looking to make their truck even more capable.”

Ford Performance and ARB will extend the collaboration beyond the Ranger into additional, as-yet-unnamed equipment for Ford trucks and SUVs. ARB COO Lachlan McCann says that the goal of the relationship is to give Ford customers the confidence that they need to go places they typically might not.
The new Ranger winch-capable bumper leverages 3/16-inch thick sheet metal and features an Integrit powder coat finish. The bumper attaches to the truck using chassis mounting points for seamless installation and confidence in use. The bumper will be compatible with accessories like WARN Industries winches, Rigid SR-Series LED lightbars, and antenna and sand flag mounts.
The Ford Ranger winch-capable bumper will be up for grabs next year through Ford dealers and Ford Performance Parts distributors. It’ll carry a $1,495 MSRP and an FPP limited warranty.
