In 2015, Ford and ARB began discussions around how we could provide Ford with fully integrated premium accessories for their products worldwide.
Ford's desire was to have:
- The best possible aftermarket products available on their range of 4×4s
- A broader range of premium accessories for their 4×4s
A delegation from Ford visited ARB in Melbourne, AU to check out our manufacturing facilities. The delegation was made up of key Ford people from around the world including the USA, Europe, South Africa and the Asia-Pacific.
After working through the details, Ford and ARB reached a formal agreement. In March 2021, Ford and ARB went public, announcing their exciting new partnership. By working closely with Ford, we were able to speak directly with their designers giving us a head start on producing a full product range for the Next-Gen Ford Ranger & Everest which are now available in Australia.
With the Next-Gen Ford Ranger gradually making its way to the USA and global markets, Ford honored ARB by granting the privilege of unveiling one of the select few Next-Gen Ford Rangers at the 2023 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
Thanks to our strategic partnership, a full range of accessories tailored for the Next-Gen Ford Ranger was already prepared. Expectations soared, and we are thrilled to announce that not only were they met, but they were exceeded. This vehicle captured the attention and admiration of thousands.
