The new Ford Ranger Wildtrak was designed and developed in Australia and will be produced right here in South Africa, as well as a number of other countries. The vehicle will be shipped to over 180 markets across the globe but interestingly enough not to the United States.

The 2012 new Ford Ranger Wildtrak comes fully decked out with 18-inch alloy wheels, roof rack and a sports hoop. Not to mention Bluetooth audio streaming, ipod connectivity, voice control over the radio, phone and 5-inch colour screen with sat nav.

Under the hood, the new Ford Ranger Wildtrak comes with 2 new engine options. First up is a 2.2 litre 4-cylinder diesel engine which pumps out 375 Nm of torque. The other new option is a 3.2 litre 5-cylinder diesel engine which produces 470 Nm of torque. These new engine options have been developed and refined to increase the fuel economy and place the Wildtrak as one of the best in class.
