The iconic pickup truck from Ford vans has received a comprehensive facelift for 2019, Vansdirect gets up close and personal with the best-selling pickup truck in the UK, the Ford Ranger Wildtrak!
Ford vans have dominated the UK new van market for as long as we can remember, they also have the best-selling pickup truck on the market in the form of the iconic Ford Ranger which has been available on our shores for more than two decades. Despite leading the way in terms of pickups for sale, Ford vans have not rested on their laurels with the Ranger pickup, giving it a comprehensive facelift including a modified appearance, new engines and a plethora of new safety technology, at Vansdirect we don’t do half measures and as such got hands on with the pickup right at the top of the range, the new Ford Ranger Wildtrak!
Changes to the appearance of the new Ford Ranger are made up of a revised front bumper and grille design and new paint options, whilst top of the range Ford Ranger Wildtrak models also receive LED daytime running lights as well as a host of modifications to the exterior of the pickup truck including the massive 18-inch boulder grey machined alloy wheels, a host of other boulder grey features including: radiator grille, exterior mirror finish, exterior door handle and rear bumper. Other visual changes for Wildtrak models include: Roof rails and a dyno grey sports hoop with side rails. All of these features give the Wildtrak a luxurious and exclusive feel.
The interior of the new Ford van remains largely the same as the pre-facelifted model, whilst top of the range Ranger Wildtrak pickups get an incredibly luxury feel inside with an ebony headliner, sport leather stitched steering wheel, premium front and rear floor mats featuring the Wildtrak logo and Wildtrak door trim panel insert. There’s no doubt in your mind whilst inside the new Ranger Wildtrak pickup you are in sitting in a top of the range pickup truck.
For the new Ranger pickup truck, Ford vans have used a host of the latest safety technology from the Ford passenger car range. Collision and pedestrian detection is now standard across the range, as well as an intelligent speed limiter which automatically slows down the pickup truck if a lower speed limit than the current cruise control setting is sensed by the on-board camera. You’ll also find features such as adaptive cruise control, lane assist, front and rear parking sensors and trailer stability control in the range.
There have been some significant changes under the skin of the new Ford Ranger pickup including a reworked suspension and brakes and new engines. The new 2.0-litre ecoblue diesel engines are more economical than the engines they have replaced as well more powerful. Whilst the reworked suspension gives a more car like feel and a smoother driving experience to the iconic pickup. The premium and luxurious feel of the Ranger Wildtrak means that you can travel in comfort regardless of whether you are cruising up and down the motorway or if you are to go off the beaten track.
