New Ford Ranger Wildtrak unveiled

The all-new Ford Ranger Wildtrak has been unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

The new Ranger, which is set to hit the road this November, comes packed with technologies, such as Electronic Stability Program, satellite navigation and Bluetooth voice control.

Designed and developed in Australia, the new model will be manufactured in Thailand, South Africa and Argentina for over 180 markets around the world.

Engine options include a new Dagenham-built 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel delivering 150 horsepower, and a 3.2-litre five-cylinder diesel producing 200 horsepower.

It will be offered as a complete family of compact pick-ups with three different cab body styles, 4x2 and 4x4 drive trains, two ride heights and up to four trim choices.

The new sporty pick-up will have a towing capacity of 3,350kg.

Fitted with an 80-litre fuel tank, the model is expected to have one of the longest ranges in its segment.

Ford is expected to announce prices and specifications of the new model closer to the launch date.
