2022 Ford Ranger Splash adds a splash of fun to the midsize pickup

Say good day to the cheery 2022 Ford Ranger Splash Bundle. Yep, the Splash title is officially back with the Ranger, just like we imagined it may be immediately after observing Ford trademark the title earlier this 12 months. Ranger heritage aficionados will recall that Ford supplied a Splash on the truck back in the nineties, so this 2022 Ranger Splash Bundle is a throwback to the primary.

Ford also broke this Splash information into two sections. One particular is the Splash Bundle by itself, but Ford is also going to be offering “Splash Restricted Edition” Rangers through the 12 months that are different from the “Splash Bundle,” which will be accessible all 12 months. 

We’ll begin by detailing the 12 months-extensive and unchanging “Splash Bundle.” It’s what you see pictured in this article, so there is no imagination needed. Just like the primary Splash, this one’s all about visual appearance. Ford commences with a major black and orange body-aspect graphic. Then, it provides orange grille nostrils and gloss black accents on the grille, bumpers, mirror caps, wheel lip moldings and fender vents. The black distinction paint topic carries on with matte black-painted 18-inch wheels.

The interior gets orange stitching on the seats, steering wheel, equipment shifter and parking brake boot. And if you upgrade from the XLT to the Lariat Splash Bundle, Ford provides in orange stitching to the armrests (both entrance and rear) and sprint leading. Ford’s past interior contact is a one of a kind trim that has a “carbon grain” visual appearance with “tuxedo” stripes running by means of it. 

You will be paying $1,495 extra for the Splash Bundle, and Ford lets you mix it with the FX2 or FX4 packages if you want a Splash with far more off-highway capability.

As for the aforementioned “Splash Restricted Edition,” which is where it gets a little far more complicated. Ford states it will be releasing new Splash Restricted Edition designs “every several months” with one particular-time confined-operate paint solutions. There will only be “a several hundred” of every single particular Splash Restricted Edition, so they’ll be fairly scarce as much as Rangers go.

Ford states the first Splash Restricted Edition will be the Snow Edition, but it didn’t release any shots of that truck nevertheless. We suspect it’ll be painted in some new shade of white paint and function lots of black accents for distinction, as Ford is already teasing “a one of a kind mix of exterior and interior content and finishes.” We’ll be positive to let you know when far more facts on the Snow Edition come out.
