Ford Performance and ARB Team Up to Develop Off-Road Parts Starting with 2020 Ranger Winch-Ready Bumper
Ford Performance is teaming up with ARB 4x4 Accessories to develop off-road parts for the Ford vehicle line. ARB already has a strong line of aftermarket parts that include bumpers, roof racks, and air compressors. The first product the two companies collaborated on is a winch-ready front bumper for the 2020 Ford Ranger.
The ARB winch-capable front bumper is finished in a durable Integrit powdercoat. The bumper, built from welded sheet steel, attaches to the truck's existing chassis mounting and is designed to be mounted on any 2020 Ford Ranger trim level. The bumper can accommodate a wide range of accessories, including a variety of winches. The bumper features an integrated mount for simple winch installation. Easy access to the winch controls is available through the split center pan. The bumper also has mounting and jacking points for easy recovery.
"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."
ARB and Ford Performance are working on additional vehicle recovery parts for Ford off-road enthusiasts, and both companies will have future product announcements for the Ford trucks and SUVs. The winch-capable bumper will be available in 2020 at local Ford dealers and Ford Performance Parts distributors at a cost of $1,495 MSRP. Ford Performance parts has a limited warranty on the bumper.
