The Ranger Stormtrak is the nameplate's new premium-oriented truck. It's based on the Wildtrak, and it comes with extra features for enhanced comfort. It also looks sportier than the regular Ranger thanks to exclusive stripe decals and hoop, as well as a standard underbody protection plate. It basically bridges the gap between non-Raptor models and the range-topping souped-up truck.

The good news is that the sporty appearance is backed by Raptor power. The Stormtrak packs the same bi-turbo, 2.0-liter EcoBlue diesel engine under the hood. It's rated at the same 213 PS and 500 Nm of torque (210 horsepower and 370 pound-feet), so it's as fast as Euro-spec Rangers get. It even comes with the same 10-speed automatic gearbox as standard.

Available as Double Cab or Super Cab, the Stormtrak comes in three colors. There's Frozen White, Blue Lightning, and the exclusive Rapid Red. The front grille also includes Rapid Red trim. Inside the cabin, the Stormtrak boasts the same leather package as the Raptor, plus embroidered logos, fabric trim on the seat bolsters, and red stitching.

The Ranger Stormtrak is fitted with the Power Roller Shutter as standard. As a reminder, this feature enables you to open and close the shutter using the key fob or buttons located in the load bed or on the dashboard. An anti-pinch function aided by sensors helps prevent trapped fingers and damaged cargo.

Moving over to the Wolftrak, it's a more rugged alternative to the Stormtrak. Based on the XLT, it's a workhorse with a no-nonsense exterior available in dirt-friendly Conquer Gray and Sea Gray colors. Both finishes come with a matte black grille, 17-inch black wheels, and tinted badges.

The dark theme continues inside the cabin with a matte black dashboard and door spears. For added practicality, it comes with all-weather floor mats too. Ford also added a long-leg tubular bar in the bed for easier lead restraint and accessory fitment. You can also opt for a manual bed cover or Aeroklas canopy in matte black. Both the sports bar and the covers are exclusive to the Wolftrak.

What about power? The Wolftrak is also a diesel truck. Under the hood lurks a 2.0-liter EcoBlue oil burner with 170 PS (168 hp) and 420 Nm (310 lb-ft), and it's available with either a six-speed manual or a 10-speed auto. The four-wheel-drive system with shift-on-the-fly function is standard, as is the locking rear differential.

Ford says the Wolftrak will "appeal strongly to customers in farming, forestry and outdoor pursuit industries as well as private buyers." Both trucks will arrive in European dealerships in October 2021.
