Melbourne - Ford has revealed a more rugged version of the Ranger Wildtrak for the Australian market. Badged Wildtrak X, it brings together a package of unique exterior features as well as a range of advanced driver assist gadgets.
At this stage there is no word on whether the Wildtrak X will ever be introduced to South Africa, but given that we get a similar line-up to the Australian market, there should at least be some interest in launching something that resembles it.
So what’s the deal here?
According to Ford Australia, the Wildtrak X is fitted with unique 18-inch alloy wheels finished in matte black as well as black wheel arch flares, a black front nudge bar with an LED strip to light up your campsite, and a snorkel to help take advantage of the vehicle’s 800mm water wading ability.
Built for the wild it may be, but there’s no roughing it when it comes to interior specification. To that end, the Wildtrak X ships with adaptive cruise control, auto-braking with pedestrian detection, Active Park Assist and Ford’s flagship Sync3 infotainment system.
