The Ford Ranger pickup truck is moving overseas for good, and it is looking good while waving goodbye to the States too, just like a divorced wife. At the 2011 Geneva Motor Show this week, Ford debuted its latest version of the 2012 Ford Ranger Wildtrak for the European market and elsewhere only.
The 2012 Ford Ranger Wildtrak will be offered in two diesel engines: a 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine producing 148 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque, and a 3.2-liter inline five-cylinder engine producing 197 horsepower and 347 lb-ft of torque. To maximize traveling distance, the Ranger Wildtrak is fitted with an 80-litre fuel tank, which it is expected to have one of the longest ranges in its segment.
In the top-range model, the Wildtrak is packing with a lot amenities. It comes with Bluetooth audio streaming, USB and iPod connectivity. There is also voice control over the radio, CD, iPod, USB, air-conditioning and phone. In addition, it is available with a five-inch color screen with satellite navigation. On the exterior, the Ranger Wildtrak comes with a color scheme on its front fascia, 18-inch wheels and a roof rack for hauling extra stuff.
The 2012 Ford Ranger Wildtrak will first go on sale in Britain in November 2011. Pricing will be announced a month ahead of the launch date.
