What can nearly 30 years do for a truck package? Apparently enough to convince Ford to bring it back into production.
The Ford Ranger Splash package, originally introduced in 1993, is coming back for the 2022 model year, Ford announced today.
Ford said the “much-loved special appearance package from the 1990s” will be available in two styles: the Splash Package and the Splash Limited Edition. The familiar flareside bed found on the original Splash package, however, is not coming along for the ride.
“Ranger customers love to personalize their trucks—more than 80% customize their Ranger with an appearance package—and with Splash, we’re giving them something exclusive,” said Chad Callandar, Ford Ranger marketing manager.
“Every few months, we’re going to roll out another exterior color for Ranger that will be offered one time only and in very limited quantities,” Callandar continued.
The Splash Package, which will be available throughout the 2022 model year, comes with body-side orange and black graphics and special 18-inch 12-spoke wheels finished in matte black. Ranger Splash includes orange grille nostrils, plus gloss black accents on the grille, bumpers, rearview mirror caps, wheel lip moldings and fender vents.
The interior features exclusive seats with orange contrast stitching and unique carbon grain with tuxedo stripes that get leather-trimmed in Lariat. Orange contrast stitching also appears on the steering wheel, gear shifter and parking brake boot. Lariat models get orange accent stitching on front and rear armrests and on the dash top.
The Splash Package can be combined with the FX2 or FX4 Package.
Ford will also bring a fresh dash of color by revealing Splash Limited Edition trucks every few months in a series of one-time-only hues with just a few hundred vehicles available. It also features 18-inch matte black wheels and a unique combination of exterior and interior content and finishes. The Splash – Snow Edition kicks off the first batch.
Ranger Splash Package will be available for SuperCrew models optioned in XLT and Lariat trim series, priced at $1,495 with deliveries starting at the end of the year.
