Ford Welcomes New Ranger Models by Adding 3 New Wildtrak Models


The Philippines’s best-selling pick-up, the Ford Ranger, gets new additions to its growing family to bring the total to 13 variants. The new additions expand the range-topping Wildtrak trim by adding two 2.2-liter 4x2 models and the 3.2-liter 4x4 equipped with a manual transmission. The prices for the new Wildtrak models are as follows:
  • 2.2L Ranger Wildtrak 4x2 M/T – P 1,219,000
  • 2.2L Ranger Wildtrak 4x2 A/T – P 1,289,000
  • 3.2L Ranger Wildtrak 4x4 M/T – P 1,490,000
“The Ranger continues to be one of our top-selling nameplates and we are very excited to offer customers even more options to meet their needs,” said Kay Hart, managing director, Ford Philippines.
The new Ranger Wildtrak 4x2 variants come with the proven Duratorq TDCi 2.2L engine in both 6-speed automatic and manual transmission, guaranteed to deliver more power in its segment, achieving peak torque output of 375 Nm and power output of 150 PS.

These new variants also include additional safety technologies that used to be exclusively available on the 3.2L Ranger Wildtrak such as the Side and Curtain Airbags. These airbags deploy from the headliner to provide a protective cushion for the head of outboard occupants in the event of a significant side impact while the curtain is designed to protect both rows of occupants by covering the upper side structure and glass from the A-pillar to the C-pillar.

Additional notable features are the 3-point seat belts in all positions, driver and passenger beltminder, seatbelt pretensioners, and ISOFIX Child Seat Anchorage Points – the international standard for attachment points for child safety seats.

Premium styling is enhanced for the range-topping Wildtrak. Sitting high on 18-inch alloy wheels, the Wildtrak features an attractive Sport Package with Roof Rail, Sport Bar, Box Rail, Bedliner and Special Wildtrak Leather Seats, Steering Wheel and Door Trim. The exclusive Wildtrak badging and graphics, accentuates its aggressive look and sporty stance.

Meanwhile, the 3.2L Ranger Wildtrak M/T is powered by the state-of-the-art Duratorq TDCi 3.2L engine, delivering a substantial 470 Nm of torque and power rated at 200 PS. It comes with 6-speed manual transmission, promising to continue delivering excellent fuel economy and class-leading power.

Like the other Wildtrak variants, the 3.2L Ranger Wildtrak M/T has the same exclusive features like the Rear View Camera, Cooled Center Console, premium eight-way power adjustable seats and the 12V socket on the Bedliner.

The additional Wildtrak variants are available in three body colors – Chili Orange, Cool White, Black Mica.

“With the addition of these new variants, the Ranger continues to live up to our promise of delivering a truck with no compromise, with its class-leading power and safety, excellent fuel efficiency, smart technologies, and unmatched versatility and capability, exceeding the demands of our customers in the Philippines,” said Hart.
