Default Options available on Rangers

Is there a source listing available options and packages for our vehicles? For instance my window sticker lists class III trailer and also hitch. Was there such a thing as a trailer towing package? If so, what made up that package?

Posted too quickly. Found the answer via a pdf of the product marketing literature for the 2011 ranger.

From what I know as far as a "tow package" for the Rangers was just a class 3 hitch mounted to the frame under the rear bumper. Neither one of my Rangers had one and I got them from the junk yard for like $25.00 a piece. I personally push my little 4 cylinders to the max and have always preferred pulling with the receiver over the bumper ball.

I haven't seen any Rangers with trailer brakes equipped like on a full size truck. Just because these little trucks shouldn't be used to pull full on car trailers.

In their marketing literature and brochures ford did touted the capacity to tow. They are a full on cab on frame truck. I think they have the ability, just not necessarily the best option.

I think a factory towing package included a trans cooler as well, or an auxiliary trans cooler. I put a brake controller in my Ranger, figuring the only trailers I have have brakes and are all 7 round pin I just went ahead and put it in when putting a 7 pin plug on the truck.

I wish heated mirrors had been an option in '08.
My FX4 has everything else.
