Ford Ranger Thunder

This image of what appears to be a new Ford Ranger Thunder has been snapped in Thailand. Those that remember the Ford Ranger Max concept from late last year will immediately recognise it to be a production version of that concept. It’s not clear at the moment whether this is a some form of special edition of the Ford Ranger with different headlamps, grille, bumper and other aesthetic bits, or a full-fledged facelift. The word “Thunder” was used on a special edition current generation Ranger before in the UK, and perhaps some other places. Malaysia could get this pretty soon as our Ranger now comes from Thailand as a fully imported unit, instead of being locally assembled here as Ford has pulled out its official presence from this country. As usual, the production translation of the concept has been toned down considerably, but modification enthusiasts can use the concept truck as a reference in their own pimpage plans. Look after the jump for a previously featured gallery of the orange Ranger Max concept truck.
