Thursday, July 26, 2007
They stand out from the rest of the Rangers with a tubular rear sports roll-over bar, chrome side sill bars and rear chrome underbar. Inside there are leather seats, electric windows, scuff plates, off-road gauges, six-disc CD player and air conditioning.
Ford has added two new double cab models, Wildtrak and Thunder Auto, to its Ranger pick-up line-up and both feature a new 3-litre TDCi engine capable of 156PS. The latter also sports a five-speed automatic gearbox.
The Wildtrak retains the five-speed manual 'box from the current models and is available with unique optional paintwork; limited edition Chilli Orange or Passion Red combined with Titanium Grey on the lower part of the body.
Additional features include rear load area rail extensions, aerodynamic sports bar, lower sports cladding and tail lamp protectors, integrated door mirror indicators, puddle lamps and unique badging. Other goodies include new 16 inch alloy wheels, a new sports front grille, side steps, aluminium roof rails, an integrated load bay liner and a rear protection bar with integrated park distance control.
Wildtrak's appeal is further enhanced on the inside by heated seats trimmed in leather and perforated alcantara (fake suede) with orange detailing. Floor mats with the Wildtrak logo, sports steering wheel, dash-mounted off-road 'information centre', premium interior and footwell lighting and 'Wildtrak' scuff plates complete the picture.
On-the-Road prices (excl VAT) are £19,972 for the Thunder 3-litre Auto and £20,872 for the Wildtrak 3-litre.
