Johannesburg - Last week Ford revealed the facelifted version of the global-spec Ford Ranger in XLT guise, and since then Ford SA has released pictures of the Wildtrak version, while also confirming that the upgraded bakkie will go on sale here in 2019, along with the new Raptor flagship.
Like its range counterparts, the Wildtrak gets a redesigned front bumper and grille and as before this sporty model is set apart by a dark grey colour scheme for the grille and wing mirrors.
There will be a clearer visual distinction between the different models, with bumper designs and colours reflecting the unique character of each model.
New technologies will also debut with the 2019 Ranger, Ford SA confirming that Pre-Collision Assist with Inter-Urban Autonomous Emergency Braking (including vehicle and pedestrian detection) will be offered on select models, as will Active Park Assist.
In addition, Ford has made suspension changes across the range, aimed at improving the ride and reducing body roll.
