The 2015 Ford Ranger Wildtrak has been spied again in its top-spec trim ahead of its official launch in the coming months.
The interior and exterior images of the undisguised Ranger Wildtrak were posted to the Ferd Fan Page and CarScoops earlier today and reveal gloss-black highlights on the front-end that appear to be derived from Ford’s bigger pick-up truck products, such as the F-150.
Wildtrak insignia can also be seen flanking the side panels of the driver and passenger doors, with ‘4×4’ stickers on the rear quarter panel.
The interior photographs show that Ford has taken styling cues from the recently revealed Ford Everest. Integration of Ford’s new Sync 2 entertainment system replaces the small and sometimes hard to read LCD screen fitted to the current generation of the Ranger.
The interior photographs also show that LCD screens will be fitted to the top-spec Ranger’s speedometer and tachometer cluster, in addition to leather-look stitching on the dashboard, giving the Ranger a far more premium feel.
Driveline upgrades developed for the Everest may also flow through to the ute, including a new turbocharger for the 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine and a recalibrated six-speed automatic transmission.
Based on previous spy shots from CarAdvice’s local snapper, the revised Ranger is currently undergoing extensive testing in Australia ahead of an official reveal in the coming months and a local launch in the third quarter.
