Ford has revealed its new Ranger Stormtrak and Ranger Wolftrak – limited-edition models building on its award-winning pick-up style and capability.
Ranger Stormtrak is a premium truck offering “distinctive styling and premium features” for customers that value outstanding capability.
Ranger Wolftrak is an “intrepid, rugged pick-up designed around the needs of customers” who work outdoors and desire commanding off-road performance without compromising comfort and desirability.
Bold style and tough capability
Hans Schep, general manager, Commercial Vehicles, Ford of Europe, said:
“Customers love the bold style and tough capability of our Ranger pick-up. We’ve developed the new Stormtrak and Wolftrak limited edition models to offer even more of both.”
“Stormtrak combines striking looks with added luxury touches and features for active lifestyles. Wolftrak’s rugged off-road performance helps it comfortably take owners far off the beaten track for work and fun.”
New Stormtrak is a force of nature
Based on the premium Ranger Wildtrak series, the new Ranger Stormtrak delivers “even higher specification with further enhanced comfort features and unique finishes”.
The company will build a limited run of vehicles to ensure exclusivity. These will be available as a double cab for spacious rear seating or super cab for increased load area.
All Ranger Stormtrak models are equipped with Ford’s range-topping Bi-turbo 213 PS 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine developing 500 Nm of torque for pulling power.
A standard selectable four-wheel-drive system offers confident off-road performance. Meanwhile, its advanced 10-speed automatic gearbox delivers a smooth, effortless driving experience.
Striking Rapid Red paint is unique to Ranger Stormtrak, while LED headlights also feature and rugged underbody protection as standard delivers serious road presence. Frozen White and Blue Lightning paint options are also available.
Besides, a bedliner, load divider and Ford’s new Power Roller Shutter feature as standard. Ranger Stormtrak also retains the 1.0-tonne payload and 3,500 kg maximum towing weight delivered by the popular Wildtrak series.
The Ranger Stormtrak interior has a premium specification and practical features. Stormtrak-specific seats feature the same supple leather as Ford’s iconic Ranger Raptor, accentuated with embroidered Stormtrak logos and bolsters trimmed with technical fabric. Tinted graphite interior surfaces and red stitching throughout mirror Stormtrak’s unmistakable exterior palette.
Ranger Wolftrak tames the wilderness
Ranger Wolftrak is built for customers who desire “dependable off-road capability and a bold, no-nonsense exterior”.
Based on the Ranger XLT series, Ford’s 170 PS 2.0‑litre EcoBlue diesel engine power Wolftrak. Drivers can choose between a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission.
A selectable four-wheel-drive system with shift-on-the-fly function, electronically-locking rear differential and all-terrain tyres are standard to enable progress in challenging off-road conditions.
Meanwhile, there is a range four-wheel drive setting to improve performance on steep hills and soft surfaces.
Ford anticipates Ranger Wolftrak will appeal strongly to customers in farming, forestry and outdoor pursuit industries, and private buyers. A 1.0-tonne payload and 3,500 kg maximum towing weight offer a significant load-moving ability, supported by a standard protective bed liner.
An optional manual load bed cover or Aeroklas full load canopy are uniquely available in matte black to match Ranger Wolftrak’s blacked-out exterior detailing.
A long-leg tubular sports bar exclusive to Ranger Wolftrak creates a rugged look and supports accessory fitment and easy load restraint.
Imposing Conquer Grey paint accentuates the pick-up’s haunches. It complements the matte black grille, underbody protection and 17-inch black alloy wheels.
Darkened Wolftrak badges and plastic moulded side steps complete the truck’s distinctive style. Grey paint is also available.
Exclusive touches in Ranger Wolftrak’s cabin include Wolftrak badges, a matte black instrument panel and door spears, and durable all-weather floor mats. Ford’s SYNC 3 connectivity and navigation system has an 8-inch touchscreen as a standard feature.
New Power Roller Shutter for extra practicality
Ford is also introducing a desirable new power-operated version of its popular Roller Shutter load bed cover. You can avail of this as an option Ranger Wildtrak Double Cab models, while it fits as standard to Ranger Stormtrak.
The Power Roller Shutter adds new convenience and ease of use. Customers are able to open and close the shutter via the key fob. Alternatively, they can utilise buttons located in the load bed or inside the cabin on the dashboard.
Lastly, sensors provide an anti-pinch function to help prevent trapped fingers or damaged cargo.
