Hey there! Let's dive into something pretty cool that's rolling out from Ford's corner. Ever heard of the new Ranger MS-RT? Oh man, it's a looker and then some! Picture this: a truck that's not just a truck but a street-slaying beast with a vibe that screams "look at me"!

Ford Pro has just lifted the veil on this hot new Ranger variant over in Europe, and it's got everyone talking. This isn't your regular midsize pickup. We're talking a full-on visual and performance makeover.

Think beefier fenders, massive 21-inch wheels, and a suspension that's been dropped to give it that lean, mean stance. And under the hood? It's sticking with the trusty 3.0-liter V6 diesel that's known for its grunt, so no changes there.

But here's where it gets even cooler. Ford's gone all out to make this the "ultimate street truck," and frankly, they've nailed it. Those widened fenders aren't just for show; they add a solid 3.2 inches to its width, making this Ranger look like it's been hitting the gym. Plus, there are these slick vents and side skirts that just up the ante on its sporty looks.

And those wheels? They're the biggest you'll see on a Ranger, wrapped in tires that mean business. Up front, there's this honeycomb grille that complements the sportier bumper and splitter, while the back sports a ducktail spoiler that's not just for looks – it actually helps with the truck's aerodynamics, making sure this beauty is as stable as it is fast.

Now, for the gearheads out there, Ford's tweaked the chassis too. The carmaker made the tracks wifer and lowered the suspension, so you get that close-to-the-road feeling.

Under the hood, the Ranger MS-RT keeps it real with the same 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel powerhouse we know and love, cranking out 237 horses and plenty of torque. And with a 10-speed automatic and four-wheel drive, this truck is ready for whatever, whenever.

Inside, it's all about the sporty vibes with eco-leather and suede seats that hug you tight, MS-RT badges, and blue stitching that just pops. And yes, it's packed with all the tech goodies you could want, from a massive infotainment display to dual-zone climate control and all the safety bells and whistles.

This beast was cooked up by MS-RT, a team with roots deep in motorsport, aiming to bring that racetrack thrill to the everyday drive without skimping on the truck's workhorse capabilities. It's assembled with care right in the UK, and it's part of a lineup that includes some rugged and extreme siblings, like the Tremor and Raptor.

If this "street truck" has got you itching for a closer look, you're in luck. It's up for grabs in Europe, with deliveries starting mid-2024. And for the van fans out there, Ford Pro didn't forget about you – there's an MS-RT version of the E-Transit Custom van coming your way, too, with all the trimmings and then some.

So, what do you think? Ready to see this street-slaying Ranger MS-RT in action? Because it sounds like Ford's just set a new standard for cool on the road.
