2020_Ford_Ranger_rangeChanges to Ford Ranger ute line-up sees the return of the rugged Wildtrak X and upgraded Wildtrak and Ford Performance Ranger Raptor variants.

Wildtrak X now features a power roller shutter that can be activated three ways; via the key fob, a dash-mounted switch, or from a button within the Wildtrak X’s tub. The new design brings a sleeker lid that liberates additional load space, with an increase of 80mm opening length between the canister and the tailgate.

Ranger Wildtrak X benefits from the upgrades brought to Ranger Wildtrak for the 2020 model year. These include new high-performance Bi-LED headlights for greater vision ahead, as well as increased vehicle visibility to other road users.

Ranger Wildtrak X offers more than $6,000 worth of components for only $2,000, including:

It has unique 18-inch alloy wheels with +35 offset in tough matte black finish and a black nudge bar with an LED light bar.

An A-pillar-mounted snorkel, which allows the Ranger Wildtrak X’s powertrain to breathe better on dusty roads.
