For the first time ever, Ford Performance Parts is offering after-purchase leveling kits for Ford Ranger 4×4 and Ford F-150 4×4 trucks for even better off-road performance and greater vehicle customization.
A first-ever offering from Ford, the off-road leveling kits include FOX shocks, exclusive Ford Performance tuning, 2-inch front lift, new front coilovers, vehicle-specific upper front mounts and locking spring pre-load rings.
According to Ford, the leveling kits provide better off-road capability with more front ground clearance and improved approach and breakover angles for enhanced adventuring.
“Ford Performance Parts developed these kits to make the off-road experience even better for our Ranger and F-150 customers,” said Eric Cin, global director, Ford Vehicle Personalization and Accessories. “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.”
Best part – according to some owners we know – is that these kits will fit Ford F-150 4×4 pickup trucks going back to the 2015 model year.
Ford says that, with kits installed, in addition to the lift increase:
- Ranger sees an approximate 21 percent increase in approach angle and a 10 percent increase in breakover angle.
- F-150 with a 145-inch wheelbase sees an approximate 22 percent increase in approach angle and 7 percent increase in breakover angle.
Development and testing for the leveling kits included high-speed off-roading in Borrego, California, and low-speed rock-crawling in Arizona to optimize for a variety of off-road driving experiences.
“The elevated off-road geometry, paired with Ford Performance tuning, makes this a really unique offering,” said Cin. “The secret sauce to this kit is in the Ford Performance tuning. This suspension and its tuning are designed to improve off-road handling and responsiveness, specifically for Ranger and F-150.”
The kits are designed to be installed at the dealer on any four-wheel-drive 2019 Ranger or four-wheel-drive F-150 model years 2015 through 2019.
Cost for the kits is $1,495 before installation. Kits come with a Ford Performance Parts limited warranty.
Ford Performance Parts leveling kits for Ranger and F-150 will be available for order later this fall. Watch for more information at Ford Performance Parts. See your Ford dealer for details.
