Designed and developed in Australia, the 2012 Ford Ranger will be offered as a complete family of compact pick-ups with three different cab body styles, 4×2 and 4×4 drive trains, two ride heights and up to five series choices to suit every pocket and market.
The Ford Ranger Wildtrak
Sitting high on 18-inch alloy wheels, the 2012 Ford Ranger Wildtrak takes the Ranger’s sporty appearance even further. With a unique colour split on the front, designers masked out the feature line on the fascia and contrasted it by highlighting the lower intake. The same accent colours were used on the side mirrors, door handles and side air vents to give the vehicle a dark sporty look.
The Ford Ranger Wildtrak also comes with a roof rack and a sports hoop which enhance its profile. Exclusive Wildtrak badging and graphics help to set it apart from other lifestyle vehicles.
The purposeful interior of the Ford Ranger Wildtrak echoes the dark sporty look of the outside. A special hydrographic finish on the centre console around the audio is reminiscent of strong but lightweight materials like carbon fibre.
The seat trim – a combination of leather and woven cloth inspired by sportswear with ventilated sections – provides lateral support and confidence even on rough terrain. Contrast stitching and a discreet strip on the seat upper and bolster, all in distinctive Wildtrak Orange, accentuate the premium feel of the interior.
The cabin of Ford Ranger has been stretched to provide segment-leading spaciousness and comfort. Three passengers can easily fit in the second row of the Ford Ranger Wildtrak, for instance. It offers ample knee room and better foot clearance between the B-pillar and the seat. This means that getting in and out of the new Ford Ranger is easier than ever for rear-seat passengers.
With 23 storage spaces in the cabin, Ford Ranger offers more practical stowage than any competitor. A deep centre console bin will keep up to six cans of beverage cool, while the glove box is large enough to accommodate a 16-inch laptop computer. Ample storage for mobile phones and other small items can be found in the console.
