Default does the new rangers have any of the black plastic like the f150??

Im wondering because while i was swapping out antaneas on my car and my dads truck i noticed his cowl (section between the hood and windshield) looks like shit! Its faded gray and its all chalky and scratches easily. Even the bed rail caps are doing it! I know dad sanded them down a while back and use some dye paint on them but its peeled off and looking like pure crap again. What can he do to get rid of it?? I REALLY hope the ranger doesnt have any of this plastic.... but if it does what can i do to prevent it?

No, it does NOT have the plastic cowl section. It is a painted metal section.

yeah the Rangers are pretty much all metal EXCEPT for the 06+ ranger's front bumper. They are using bumpercovers like cars use.
