2024 Ford Ranger Wildtrak : Rumors, Release Date And Colors – The mid-size truck segment is about to undergo a major overhaul. Nissan has shown us its new Frontier.
Chevy will also be launching a new Colorado soon. And we are all waiting for the next generation Toyota Tacoma. But another truck we’re excited about is the new Ford Ranger set to hit dealerships next year. And Ford also doesn’t want to be left behind in maneuvering
The new 2024 Ford Ranger Wildtrak has had ups and downs in the model lineup that have more than cemented it as the best pickup truck to buy in Australia,
but it’s also a challenge to the crown with the “one car fits all” motto that SUVs have had for years. The Wildtrak model is loaded with driver comfort designed for everyday use, and Ford has tested it on urban, rural and mountain roads.
The new Ford Ranger has also increased the praise of the previous model with chassis updates and technological upgrades.
The redesigned foundation promotes better driving properties on pavements and uneven roads or bumpy roads. Additional technologies amplify the truck’s capabilities even further.
2024 Ford Ranger Wildtrak Redesign
The vibe of the Ford F-150 is strongly associated with the 2024 Ford Ranger Wildtrak It comes with C-Clamp LED daytime running lights,
large headlights, and a body that looks like a smaller version of its bigger sibling. the front looks bold and athletic with a sporty touch.
Moving to the rear, like the headlights, the taillights are also available in a choice of halogen and LED units, and feature distinctive graphics on the front, giving the Ranger a masculine look.
Thousands of Ranger owners around the world influence the design of the next generation Ranger. Chief product designer Max Tran explains.
Ranger seems to have deliberately ignored the analog controls and displays in favor of a completely digital instrument cluster and a large 12.0-inch portrait-oriented infotainment screen with Sync 4 at least in the guise of 2024 Ford Ranger Wildtrak.
The screen is legible and the color contrast makes the text stand out, while the capacitive features of the touchscreen center allows fast response.
Switching to the physical drive mode unit, we found there was a considerable lag between turning the physical dial and the driver display pop-up which was equally frustrating to use.
Why there is no small LED indicator on the physical unit for driving mode is beyond our reach as the two don’t speak to each other very well.
2024 Ford Ranger Wildtrak Feature
The 2024 Ford Ranger Wildtrak comes as standard with the larger 12-inch Sync 4 infotainment system. It’s already proven to be a favorite in overseas models like the Ford Mustang Mach-E, Ford F-150 Lightning, and Ford Expedition 2023, so we might be excited to test it out for the first time.
Power delivery is smooth, the engine never feels like it’s pulling more weight than it wants, and the transmission has been tuned to find a balance between peak torque (which drops nicely) and fuel economy (although we’d argue it’s better suited to the Bi-Turbo).
Get your feet down, downshift into two gears, and you’ll have no trouble overtaking a slower car on country road B from 80 km/h and up.
But what Ranger gained in refinement, it was lacking in tenacity and grumbling. The 2024 Ford Ranger Wildtrak I tested was powered by an EcoBlue 2.0-liter inline-four bi-turbo diesel engine, making 210 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.
There were times when I had to overtake to keep up with the convoy, only to be met with the feeling of wanting more pull from the rear wheels.
The V6 sends drive through to a new on-demand electronic four-wheel drive system, with full-time 4WD varying drive to front or rear wheels as needed.
Then again, there’s the availability of the Ford Ranger V6 turbodiesel in select markets like Australia, which should make 247 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. As for the other markets that will get the machine with the best specifications, it is still a mystery.
Transmission Ford Ranger Wildtrak 2024
The 2024 Ford Ranger Wildtrak receives the same 10-speed 10R80 automatic transmission. While often topped by the 8-speed ZF 8HP unit found in the VW Amarok,
we found that the revised gearshift point enhances the city driving experience while adding a touch of overall refinement in the gearbox when shifting down for highway overtaking.
2024 Ford Ranger Wildtrak Price
For the wildtrak price we predict, with a starting price of $67,890 soaring $1100 before on-road costs. Look for the Ford Ranger 2023 which has a base price of around $30,800 for the rear-wheel drive model in the Extended Cab format. Ranger 2024 will hit $42,090. The 2024 Ford Ranger Wildtrak Sport starts at $64,990 plus on-road costs of course.
