The Ford Ranger is the best-selling unit of the Blue Oval company in the Philippine market due to various reasons. One of which is its wide array of variants. Thanks to its numerous variants, the Ford Ranger is able to cater to the different mobility needs of those in the market for a rugged pickup truck.
Ford Ranger midsize pickup truck
Part of its variants is several available body color options offered by Ford Philippines. The Ford Ranger can be availed of with a total of ten colors. However, not every color option is available to all of the truck’s variants. Color availability will depend on the chosen variant.
As such, we’ll take a deep dive into the available colors of the midsize pickup truck so you can help decide before heading to a Ford dealership. Take note that the Ford Ranger colors might vary from the actual model. You can use the following as a reference only.
Ford Ranger XLS
The baseline variant of the Ford Ranger, the XLS, is available with four body color options, namely the Arctic White, Absolute Black, Aluminum Metallic, and Sunset Red. If you are looking for a Ford Ranger color that stands out, then you might want to consider the Sunset Red paint finish.
Ford Ranger Sunset Red
With the Sunset Red, your pickup truck will manage to look sleek even if you get the base XLS variant only. Plus, red paint generally goes well with the black trims of the model which can be found on the grille, wheels, side steps, and rear bumper.
Just keep in mind that Sunset Red is not as red as the True Red option which is available in the FX4 variants only. But if you like to trim down some unnecessary costs by choosing the base XLS variant, then the Ford Ranger color in Sunset Red should do. The Sunset Red and True Red are the only red paints on the roster.
Ford Ranger Aluminum Metallic [Note: Photo shows Ranger Wildtrak]
If you wish for a simpler look, then you could add the Aluminum Metallic to your list. This paint job provides a somewhat robust look as it creates a metal finish appeal, a robotic layout if you will. It sits somewhere in the middle of black and white, not too bright and not too dark.
Ford Ranger XLT
Moving up one variant is the Ford Ranger XLT which is available in four body color options, including Arctic White, Absolute Black, Aluminum Metallic, and Meteor Grey. This variant removes the Sunset Red from the options and adds the Meteor Gray, a color option that is also available on higher-end variants.

The Ford Ranger color in Meteor Gray provides a darker finish as compared to the Aluminum Metallic mentioned above. This is the color option that you should opt for if you want a dark hue, but not to the extent of black paint.
Speaking of black paint, Ford Philippines is offering its midsize pickup truck with the Absolute Black color option. Considering that the theme of the Ford Ranger is black, the Absolute Black paint will seamlessly blend with the standard exterior features of the truck. Now, this could be a good thing or a bad thing. The answer should be subjective.
Ford Ranger Absolute Black [Note: Photo shows Ranger Wildtrak]
Brighter color options are available on this variant include Aluminum Metallic and Arctic White. The biggest benefit in opting for a bright paint job specifically for the PH-spec Ford Ranger is that it will help accent the standard blacked-out exterior details of the pickup truck.
Ford Ranger FX4
The Ford Ranger colors for the FX4 Max are as follows: Arctic White, Absolute Black, Aluminum Metallic, Meteor Grey, and True Red. As said earlier, Ford Philippines is only offering two red paint options for its midsize pickup truck. And one of which is the True Red available only for the FX4 variants.
Ford Ranger True Red
So if you are thinking of buying the Ford Ranger FX4 Max, we recommend that you get the True Red paint option. The hue of the True Red creates a sporty appeal which can make the truck look more aggressive. It is further complemented by the blacked-out trims of the model.
You can also use the True Red body color option as a statement on the road, saying that you have the money to get the FX4 variant. Ford Philippines is offering the FX4 variant at Php 1,320,000 for the 4x2 MT variant and goes to Php 1,510,000 for the FX4 4x4 AT. Fortunately, the sleek-looking True Red color doesn’t come with an additional cost.
Ford Ranger Arctic White
On the other hand, you can roll out with a simpler look with the Arctic White. This Ford Ranger color is available in all variants except the Wildtrak variant. Perhaps the biggest advantage in owning a car with white paint is that it hides water spots and scratches better as compared to other color options.
Ford Ranger FX4 MAX
Now we move to the new Ford Ranger FX4 MAX. It is available with six color options, namely the Arctic White, Conquer Gray, Absolute Black, Meteor Grey, True Red, and Blue Lightning. Looking at the options, the Blue Lightning and Conquer Gray are the new and exclusive paint finishes for this variant.
Ford Ranger Blue Lightning
Opting for the Blue Lightning Ford Ranger color in 2021 sure looks nice and sweet. However, you might not feel as unique as compared to other exclusive paint finishes considering that blue is a common choice for Ford Ranger owners even for the previous generations of the midsize pickup truck.
Ford Ranger Conquer Gray
So if you are that type who considers the feeling of exclusivity, then maybe the Conquer Gray should be your go-to option. The Conquer Gray body color option should go well with the black wheels, grille, roll cage, and bumpers of this variant, creating that army-like appeal that looks ready for any challenges on the road.
Ford Ranger Wildtrak
Last up on the variants is the Ford Ranger Wildtrak, offered with Snowflake White Pearl, Saber, Absolute Black, Aluminum Metallic, and Meteor Grey. One can say that you can never go wrong by choosing the Saber body color option, the closest gold Ford Ranger color.
Ford Ranger Saber
This is the signature and theme color of the Wildtrak variant. What’s more is that the interior of this variant gets Saber stitching and trim, completing that all-around look. And just like the other variants, the Ford Ranger Wildtrak still gets blacked-out exterior details.
Ford Ranger Snowflake White Pearl
Another exclusive body color option on the Wildtrak is the Snowflake White Pearl. The Ford Ranger color in Snowflake White Pearl provides a premium yet clean look to the finish. If you wish to choose this variant, you might want to keep in mind that Ford Philippines is including an additional Php 15,000 for this body color option. Worth it or not? Your call.
