Updated 2021 Ford Ranger Wildtrak X checks in

The Ford Ranger Wildtrak X is making a return to dealerships in early 2021, offering a range of design, features, and interior upgrades over the standard Ranger Wildtrak.

Rocking 18-inch alloy wheels with 35mm offset, the Wildtrak X features a black-painted nudge bar, LED light bar and wheel-arch flares. Also unique to the Wildtrak X are ‘Sabre’ coloured highlights on the Sports hoop and grille nostrils, along with Ebony Black exterior accents which replace the Bolder Grey accents on the standard Wildtrak.

Inside, the Ford Ranger Wildtrak X offers a premium appointed cabin, including leather-appointed seating with Wildtrak orange stitching detail on the steering wheel, gear-lever and handbrake boot. Compared to the standard Wildtrak, the Wildtrak X now features unique seat trim including striking Sabre orange detailing on the seat face and cushion, plus additional leather accents on the side bolsters. In addition, new illuminated scuff plates on the front door sills provide additional visual impact when the driver steps into the cabin.

Popular Ranger Wildtrak attributes like the Power Roller Shutter, are included as standard, along with SYNC 3 with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone capability. The 8.0-inch colour screen incorporates a reversing camera and built-in voice-activated sat-nav.

Based on the Ranger 4×4 Wildtrak Double Cab Pick-Up, the Wildtrak X is available with a choice of either the 3.2-litre turbodiesel 6-speed automatic, or 2.0-litre Bi-Turbo, 10-speed turbodiesel powertrains.

With 157kW/500Nm, the Bi-Turbo powertrain was first introduced on the Ford Performance Ranger Raptor and is fitted with the specifically tuned, new-generation 10-speed automatic.

The 10-speed automatic includes a lock-out feature to hold specific gears when towing, giving the Ranger Wildtrak X a towing capacity of 3,500kg and 943kg payload. 

In the guise of the 3.2L, five-cylinder common rail turbodiesel with six-speed automatic, the Wildtrak X has a payload of 913kg and towing capacity of 3,500kg.

Ford’s full Driver Assist Technology suite is standard, among which is Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control, Hill Descent Control, Hill Launch Assist, as well as electronic rear differential lock. There is also a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, and Active Park Assist. 

For 2021, the Ford Ranger Wildtrak X includes the following upgrades over the standard Wildtrak:

  • Genuine Ford Black nudge bar
  • Lumen 20.5” slimline LED Light Bar
  • Unique 18-inch black alloy wheels with 35 mm offset
