Ford releases the Ranger Wildtrak X

2019 Ford Ranger Wildtrak X 3 ExteriorFord Ranger has been a huge success for the company in Australia, in fact it is the leading sales model for ford, more than all their other models added up. They have just released a new variant and Rob Fraser tells us about it.

Sitting between the Ranger Raptor and the Ranger Wildtrak, Ford has released the Wildtrak X, features such as exclusive 18-inch black-alloy wheels, black wheel-arch flares, black front nudge bar with LED light bar, as well as a snorkel.

Other features include AEB with Pedestrian Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control and Active Park Assist, as well as SYNC 3 with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto smartphone compatibility and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System

There is a choice of either the latest generation 2.0L Bi-Turbo diesel with 10-speed automatic, or the existing 3.2L turbodiesel 6-speed automatic powertrain. There is also a five-year/unlimited kilometre factory warranty plus other owner benefits.

Pricing starts at a touch over $65,000 plus options and the usual costs and competes against the likes of the Toyota HiLux Rigged X. The Ute market is certainly becoming more competitive.
