2019 Ford Ranger Wildtrak Spotted In The Wild



Ford has confirmed the return of the Ranger earlier this year and around two weeks ago, a camouflaged Ranger Raptor was spied test driving. Now another possible Raptor trim was caught roaming around the Southwestern United States.

This model seems to be an off-road version with higher ground clearance and polished bars attached to the bed. If it really is the Wildtrak, the trim will be a more rugged-looking version of the Ranger, but it most likely wonít be as off-road orientated as the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 or Toyota Tacoma TRD. More likely, itíll rival the likes of a Z71-equipped Colorado.

In other markets the Wildtrak features chrome trim, but the camouflage is hiding those tweaks if they do exist. Whatís clear is that the set of dark wheels looks very attractive here.

Already sold in Australia, the Wildtrak is a 4◊4 Double Cab offered with a 3.2-liter diesel engine only. Buyers can equip their pickups with either a manual or automatic transmission. Perhaps Fordís 10-speed automatic might be available to North American buyers.

That is, if Ford decides to offer the Ranger Wildtrak in the States. Off-Road.com is unsure if the milder off-road version will appear stateside, though we can expect to see the 2019 Ranger next year.

I feel like the Raptor was made to show what the brand is capable of overall which in turn can justify a Wildtrack Ranger. Often that's what it takes to convince the public these lower end models are just as good in their own right.

But then again if Toyota is dominating sales here even with the TRD model, that gives away the answer and expectations.

If the Bronco is really based on the Ranger, than the SUV will have a very long wheelbase, longer than what I would like.

That would also depend on the chassis that Ford offers here. If they dropped the Bronco body on a regular cab frame, it wouldn't be that bad, I don't think.

Often car makers have platforms that are dynamic from vehicle to vehicle compared to years ago when that wasn't exactly the case. Toyota is a great example of this. Its getting to the point they will only have a few platforms for ALL the vehicles they sell, which is insane.
