For the first time, Ford offers an off-road leveling suspension kit for owners of its pickup trucks, including the Ranger and the F-150.
In its announcement, Ford reported that most of its Rangers and F-150 are purchased with 4-wheel drive.
“Ford Performance Parts developed these (new, aftermarket) kits to make the off-road experience even better for our Ranger and F-150 customers,” Eric Cin, global director of Ford Vehicle Personalization and Accessories, is quoted in the announcement.
“Truck customers are asking for options for increased capability and customization, and the new leveling suspension kits for Ranger and F-150 deliver on that need.”
The kits include Fox shocks, Ford Performance tuning, a 2-inch front lift, front coilovers, vehicle-specific upper front mounts and locking spring pre-load rings.
Ford said customers benefit from better off-road capability and more front ground clearance with improved approach and breakover angles.
The kits were developed and validated during high-speed off-roading in Borrego, California, and low-speed rock crawling in Arizona, Ford said.
The kits will be available soon at Ford dealerships for $1,495 (excluding installation). The kits are designed for 2019 Rangers and post-2015 F-150s.
