Ford Dealerships Offer Yakima Adventure-Ready Ranger Accessories

The all-new 2019 Ford Ranger is already on the streets and if Ford has anything to say about it won’t stay on the pavement for long.

Ford is hoping buyers will enjoy the adventure-ready aspect of the midsize pickup by teaming up with Yakima, a company that makes adventure products. The idea is that buyers can customize their pickup with some of Yakima’s highest-selling accessories that are now available through Ford dealerships.

During a recent Ford media event in Dallas, Ford Ranger Marketing Manager Chad Callander showed off some of the accessories meant to hoist kayaks, bikes and skis off the floor of the pickup bed, and even serve as a place to spend the night in the great outdoors.

Callander also describes how buyers can buy Yakima accessories and add them to the cost of the vehicle financing. In other words, buyers can include them in the invoice of their vehicle and they can also be residualized in their Ford Motor Company lease. All Yakima accessories purchased thought a Ford dealerships also come with a 3-year or 36,000-mile warranty.

Some accessories that will be available starting early 2019 include:

  • BedRock Heavy Duty (HD) truck bed rack (78-inch HD Crossbar)

    The low-profile BedRock elevates your truck bed capacity with a low-height rack system capable of carrying bikes, skis, boats or boxes above the bed, preserving the storage capacity underneath.

    Also compatible with BedRock:

    • SkyRise medium rooftop tent

  • BaseLine tower and JetStream crossbar cab rack

    BaseLine’s design and adjustability allow it to fit to a vehicle’s roof for a clean and secure fit.

    Also compatible with BaseLine:

    • MegaWarrior basket with light bracket and large stretch net
    • SlimShady awning

  • LongArm bed extender with pad

    The LongArm truck bed extender easily extends the length of any truck bed up to four feet. Light and strong, the aluminum, hitch-mounted rack helps haul kayaks, boards, lumber, ladders and more. The LongArm is adjustable to three distinct load-carrying positions and rated to carry up to 300 pounds in lower positions.

  • GateKeeper tailgate pad (Large; for up to six bikes)

    GateKeeper’s durable nylon exterior protects the attached bike from the truck's tailgate, while the soft felt backing protects the vehicle’s paint. Integrated SitTight™ bike cradles add extra stability and protection to bikes, and the HindSight™ tuck-away cover opens up the view for the vehicle’s rearview camera.

Ford is already expanding the Yakima accessory lineup. Ford will make them available for the 2020 Explorer when it goes on sale this summer. The Yakima catalog includes stand-alone accessories such as a single-key system that allows one key to unlock various pieces of equipment, heavy-duty hook straps to secure gear easily, and holders to haul handled-gear such as canoe paddles.
