Ford Launches Ranger Wildtrak X Which Is A Cheaper Variant Of The Raptor
Ford has launched the Ranger Wildtrak X rugged pickup truck for the Australian market and it sits below the top-of-the-line Raptor variant but has all its offroad goodies.
The new Ranger flavor has wider tracks (+30 mm front and rear) as well as an extra 26 mm of ground clearance. The go-anywhere truck boasts a “specifically tuned” suspension for long trips and carrying cargo without compromising comfort, according to the Blue Oval. It also retains the generous towing capacity of 3,500 kilograms while riding on new 17-inch wrapped-around in General Grabber AT3 all-terrain tires measuring 265/70 R17.
Other distinct features include the cast aluminum side steps, the black Ford emblems, the Wildtrak X badges, and the version-specific Cyber Orange shade with contrasting Asphalt Black accents. Ford also added the Flexible Rack system with foldable roof racks and a sliding loading rack on the rear bed.
Powering the Ford Ranger Wildtrak X is the familiar 2.0-liter four-cylinder twin-turbo diesel engine derived from the standard Wildtrak, matched with a 10-speed automatic transmission. However, the Wildtrak X’s version of the engine has been upgraded to meet stricter Euro 6 emissions standards – which makes it the first Ranger model to require the use of AdBlue.
Inside the Ranger Wildtrak X comes with the larger 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster, a B&O premium sound system, and an overhead auxiliary switch bank for aftermarket accessories. It has new leather-accented seats with Miko suede and Wildtrak X embroidered into the seat backs, upper glove box, and all-weather front and rear floor mats. There’s also Terra suede on the glovebox, instrument cluster hood, door trim, and center console rails, as well as Cyber Orange contrast stitching.
