Facelifted Ford Ranger Finds Its Way To Frankfurt, Will Wear Top-Spec Wildtrak Suit

Ford decided the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show is a proper stage for the upgraded Ranger pickup truck to take a bow, so they dressed the utilitarian vehicle with a new equipment level: Wildtrak.

As you'd expect, this new top-shelf trim comes with both exterior and interior changes, which we'll detail in the following lines.

If you're sick and tired of seeing dull cars painted in silver, gray or black, we're happy to report that the Ford Ranger Wildtrak comes dressed in Pride Orange and we have a photo gallery to testify that.

Besides that, the pickup truck receives rectangular foglights, a sports hoop, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

The cabin didn't escape the orange treatment, while, in terms of comfort, Ford fitted the pickup truck with an eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat. Sure, for a workhorse like the Ranger is, customers will also be interested in what kind of powerplant is pulling the strings from under the hood.

In this department, clients can opt for Ford's 2.2-liter TDCi or the more potent 3.2-liter TDCi mill. The first engine is available in two power outputs, namely 130 horsepower and 160 horsepower while the three-point-two plant delivers 200 horsepower.

Managing all these resources we mentioned above can be done via a six-speed manual transmission or through an automatic gearbox while buyers can choose between the four-wheel (offered as an option) or two-wheel drive for their Rangers.

Other than that, you also receive a pickup truck that according to Ford, can wade through water up to 800 mm deep. The tech force is strong with the Ranger, and by saying that we're referring to features like Lane Keeping Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control with Forward Alert plus the Hill Launch Assist and Hill Descent Control functions.

Or, as Ford officials put it, "the new Ranger Wildtrak is the complete package. It’s the toughest, smartest, boldest Wildtrak we’ve ever made.”
