- ford has announced new colors for the 2022 ranger's splash limited edition packages.
- joining the previously announced snow edition are the forest edition and the sand edition.
- as with the regular orange-and-black splash package, the limited-edition colors cost $1495.
last year, ford announced the revival of the ranger's retro-inspired splash package and said a select number of 2022 models would also be available in other unique colors that would be announced every few months. at the time, the first of these one-time-only splash limited edition colors to be revealed was the snow edition. now, ford has released additional images and further details about the new forest edition and sand edition.
the snow edition's exclusive paint color is called avalanche—because snow, get it?—and along with covering most of the mid-size truck's bodywork it also tints the grille nostrils. inside, the lariat trim level brings black leather upholstery with ash gray contrast stitching that's offset by carbon-fiber-esque stripes on the seats. ford says it plans to offer around 750 snow editions, with availability expected to start this spring.
as its name implies, the 2022 ford ranger sand edition is the color of beaches, dunes, and deserts. in fact, the paint color is literally called desert sand. unlike the snow edition, its grille nostrils are painted red, which provides a nice pop of color to the otherwise understated hue. it's mostly the same inside, except the xlt trim level means the leather is replaced by black cloth. still, the contrast stitching and carbon-fiber-like design elements remain. ford is reserving fewer rangers with the sand edition, as it says only about 500 copies will be offered when orders open this summer.
the forest edition is our favorite of these new special editions. wearing a gorgeous shade called forged green, we think it gives the truck its most rich and rugged appearance. it also pairs nicely with the 18-inch black wheels and red grille nostrils. the xlt trim level again includes black cloth upholstery with the aforementioned interior accents. the forest edition will see a limited run of approximately 500 examples when it becomes available this summer.
all three of the splash limited editions will cost an extra $1495. that's the same price as the regular splash appearance package, which features orange paint, black body-side graphics, and unique interior appointments. unlike the limited editions, the orange splash package will be available throughout the 2022 model year on both xlt and lariat models.
