The winters in the UK are getting harsher, snow and freezing temperatures are becoming common. We’ve already seen garages selling snow chains for tyres and car manufacturers along with tyre manufacturers selling winter tyres to help us deal with the treacherous driving conditions. The UK has also seen a rise in interest for 4×4 and SUV Vehicles. You may have noticed a few more of these vehicles on the road too.
The Ford Ranger is one of these vehicles becoming popular very quickly and Ford has recognised this. There is a special edition of the Ranger called the Ranger Wildtrak which appears to be more popular than the other models. It is specifically designed around the outdoor adventure sports enthusiast looking for head turning looks and practical functionality.
Ford claims that with its outstanding selectable 4×4 capability, the Ranger Wildtrak is the ideal vehicle to transport the active sportsperson to the most extreme terrain, anywhere in the world. The Wildtrak model is easily distinguishable by its unique front grille, functional roof bars and side steps. A stylish front over-rider, unique aluminium sports bar and colour-coded door handle protectors at the side and rear.
The extra practically does not mean less luxury features inside; the interior is still as luxurious as a typical family car. The Wildtrak was in fact the first UK Ford model to come with a fully integrated DAB digital radio with MP3 technology as part of the standard specification.
Standard specification in the special edition Ford Ranger Wildtrak includes:
• Driver and passenger airbags
• Two-tone leather dark grey/light grey interior
