2012 Ford Ranger Wildtrak
The all-new Ford Ranger Wildtrak makes its global debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, a sporty compact pick-up that delivers impressive power and safety, excellent fuel efficiency and significant capability. It exudes a powerful presence bolstered by the latest in-car comfort and technologies.
The new global Ford Ranger boasts an extensive range of class-leading "smart" features that make it easier, safer and more fun to drive than ever. It also sports a unique Rear View Camera System - the camera image is displayed in the rear view mirror - which dramatically improves visibility and simplifies hooking up to a trailer.
Aiming to deliver class-leading safety, new Ranger utilises a whole suite of technologies, including Electronic Stability Program (ESP), to keep its wheels sturdily planted on the road under all conditions. Despite being an enormously capable vehicle, the Ford Ranger is also fitted with technologies such as satellite navigation and Bluetooth® voice control, more commonly found on premium or luxury cars.
Building on Ranger's long-standing heritage of capability, the all-new model extends Ford's credibility further, with selected European versions achieving a best-in-class towing capacity of 3350 kg. Ranger models fitted with the 2.2-litre Ford Duratorq TDCi diesel engine also have an outstanding payload capacity of up to 1333 kg.
New from the ground up - with everything changed except its name - new Ranger is the first commercial vehicle to be built under the One Ford strategy as part of a global product programme, bringing together the full engineering expertise of Ford around the world.
Designed and developed in Australia, Ranger 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 five series choices to suit every pocket and market. It will be produced in Thailand, South Africa and Argentina for more than 180 markets worldwide.
"From the introduction of the Ranger brand to Europe in 1997, the Ford Ranger has been a major player in the European pick-up segment," said Jesus Alonso, Ford of Europe's Director for Commercial Vehicle Marketing, Sales and Service. "This all-new global model offers high-level technologies and impressive efficiency and safety. We are starting a new chapter in the Ranger success story."

Ford Ranger im Test: Offroad ein echter Kerl
Endlich -- werden sich die deutschen Ranger-Fans denken -- ist es vorbei
mit der biederen Optik des Pick-ups von Ford. Beim neuen Ranger sieht man
nun die Verwandtschaft zu den größeren "F"-Modellen, die in den USA die
meistverkaufte Pick-up-Baureihe darstellt. Unser Testfahrer Christian Jehle
hat den neuen Konkurrenten von Amarok und Co im Offroad-Park Langenaltheim
auf Herz und Nieren getestet.
