Ford has expanded its Ranger pick-up truck line-up with the addition of two new models, the Wildtrak X and the Tremor. 

Customers can now choose from seven Ranger versions, with the new additions joining the flagship Raptor, the Platinum, Wildtrak, XLT and XL. 

Ford says the Wildtrak X and Tremor are off-road-focused vehicles featuring reworked chassis with suspension upgrades including advanced Bilstein dampers as standard. 

Both models can be specified with Ford’s new Flexible Rack System to maximise load-carrying ability for longer items. The system will also be available as an option for Ranger Limited and Wildtrak models.

The folding roof rack features an adjustable sliding rear load hoop to allow long items to be carried above the roof rather than between the tailgate and cab in order to free up the load bed for other items. It has a dynamic load limit of 80kg. 

Ford claims additions such as a 26mm ride height increase compared to the Wildtrak and a 30mm wider track width as well as an uprated heavy-duty power steering system and a protective steel bash plate improve off-road capability on the Wildtrak X. 

Standard new off-road technologies on the Wildtrak X include Trail Turn Assist, which uses brake-based torque vectoring to reduce turning radius by up to 25% while Trail Control operates in a similar way to cruise control: when the driver selects a speed below 20mph the vehicle automatically manages acceleration and braking to maintain the selected speed. 

The Ranger Tremor is based on the work-oriented Ranger XLT and shares the chassis, technology upgrades and new all-wheel drive system with the Wildtrak X. The truck’s seats and floor are fitted with water-resistant vinyl trim designed for easy cleaning.

An optional pre-wired overhead switch pack offers equipment including six inputs for winches and LED light bars. 

“The new Ranger Wildtrak X and Tremor series follow the same recipe as our iconic Ranger Raptor; each one adds even more off-road ability and stunning looks to Europe’s most popular pick-up. Together, they broaden the latest Ranger family to new levels, strengthening its appeal to more customers than ever,” said Hans Schep, general manager, Ford Pro Europe.
