All black everything: Ford offers Black Appearance Package for 2019 Ford Rangers

The 2019 Ford Ranger's optional Black Appearance Package announced Monday dresses the automaker's new mid-size pickup truck with dark-finish wheels and exterior trim.

As the name suggests, this package adds a lot of blacked-out or black-accented elements to the vehicle's exterior. Breaking up the black are body-colored bumpers that also come as part of the package. Ford also offers a STX appearance package for the Ranger XL.

Since the 2019 Ford Ranger pickup went on sale in January of this year, over half of the models have been outfitted in either the Sport Appearance Package or the Chrome Appearance Package. Perhaps the most notable feature is the high-gloss black 18-inch wheels with black center caps.

Generally, when a manufacturer gets around to treating a model to a "black" or "midnight" trim package of some sort, it's a last-ditch attempt to inject a little excitement into a model when the sizzle has begun to fizzle. "The Black Appearance Package adds aggressive style to the adventures our customers embark on".

If it were us, we'd build a black XLT SuperCab with the FX4 Off-Road Package, slapping on an accessory brush guard, some KC driving lights and just hoping that nobody calls us "chicken". It's not cheap though. Those options can be ordered individually on certain combinations of the Ranger for $1,130 combined. Neither of those includes running boards or a spray-in bedliner, though, which are $635 and $495 options, respectively. The Black Appearance Package is available on any of the Ranger's body colors, which you can peruse in the gallery below.
