Ford, Ford Ranger -

2020 Ford Performance Ranger Raptor, Wildtrak and Wildtrak X tap into spirit of adventure with updates adding choice and capability across Ranger line-up

  • Ford Ranger Wildtrak X returns with a full suite of 2020 upgrades, including more powerful Bi-LED high performance headlights, remote-control powered roller-shutter and first ever pearlescent premium exterior colour choice for Ranger
  • Ford Performance Ranger Raptor, Ranger Wildtrak updated with FordPass Connect joining SYNC 3 with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, as the Ranger line-up continues to offer more personalisation as a direct result of customer feedback

  • The updates build on Ranger’s already comprehensive standard equipment and capability, which includes Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection, a five-star ANCAP rating and five-year unlimited kilometre warranty
  • A five-year/unlimited kilometre factory warranty is part of Ranger’s Ford Service Benefits offering, which includes Loan Car Program, Service Price Promise and sat-nav mapping updates to eligible customers at participating Ford dealerships

The Ford Ranger line-up continues to bring Australian customers greater choice and personalisation, with more opportunity for them to carve their own path with new, more convenient options and model upgrades – including the return of the rugged Wildtrak X alongside upgraded Wildtrak and Ford Performance Ranger Raptor variants. Completing a refreshed line-up, the updated Rangers arrive in Ford dealerships across Australia this month. 

“Ranger continues to adapt, grow and expand its offering, bringing more targeted, specific capabilities and attributes to Australian customers to help them meet any challenges they face,” said Ford Australia President and CEO, Andrew Birkic. “Now, with Ranger Wildtrak X, alongside upgraded Wildtrak and Ford Performance Ranger Raptor, customers can get even more out of their off-road adventures.”

With the hard-working Ranger XL, XLS and XLT recently bolstered with fresh options, including packages such as the XL Special Edition and Fully Loaded pack for XLT, the Ranger Wildtrak, returning Ranger Wildtrak X and Ford Performance Ranger Raptor will also continue to bring customers greater capability and convenience.

The Ranger Wildtrak X now benefits from the upgrades brought to Ranger Wildtrak for the 2020 model year, which brings customers an even greater level of premium comfort, capability and convenience. This includes new high-performance Bi-LED headlights for greater vision ahead, and increased vehicle visibility to other road users.

The new lighting system brings Bi-LED projector headlights, replacing the previous Wildtrak X’s HID projector headlights, with an LED high-beam reflector (previously halogen reflectors). Aesthetically, the upgraded high-performance lighting system is distinguished by a new square lamp design in place of the previous circular versions.

In comparable conditions, the Wildtrak X’s new high-performance Bi-LED headlights bring a significant gain in forward vision, with 17-percent greater lighting penetration on the road ahead, which increases to a 20-percent greater penetration when high-beam is in operation. Further benefits from the high-performance lighting include a brighter, white colour light beam that’s closer to daylight, offering a clearer view of the road ahead. 

In addition to the high-performance lighting system, Wildtrak X now features a power roller shutter as standard for more convenience and usability. The new roller shutter can be activated three ways; via the key fob, a dash-mounted switch, or from a button within the Wildtrak X’s tub. The new design brings a sleeker lid that liberates additional load space, with an increase of 80mm opening length between the canister and the tailgate. The sleeker design also enables an increase of 20mm in height clearance over the current shutter, for greater load space flexibility.

In addition to Ranger’s updates, including FordPass Connect, the ‘X’ Factor for Wildtrak X sees a smart combination of functional features that bring not only a unique rugged appeal, but also enhance Ranger’s already strong off-road capability.

Ranger Wildtrak X offers more than $6,000 worth of components for only $2,000, including:

  • Unique 18-inch alloy wheels with +35 offset in tough matte black finish
  • Fender flares, finished in black, to emphasise the new alloys and give the Wildtrak X an unmistakable on-road presence
  • Black nudge bar, complete with an LED light bar for improved night-time vision, both on-road or to light up a campsite
  • A-pillar-mounted snorkel, which allows the Ranger Wildtrak X’s powertrain to breathe better on dusty roads, while reducing the risk of water entering the engine compartment so that owners can make the most of the Ranger’s best-in-class 800mm water wading capability

Reflecting the increasing call for even greater personalisation and wide array of customer choices, Wildtrak X – along with Wildtrak and Ranger XLT – now offers the first pearlescent exterior colour to be offered on a Ford Ranger. The fresh Alabaster White paintwork brings a warm, rich finish to the Ranger’s exterior as an alternative to the no-cost option Arctic White, which remains available across the Ranger line-up.

In addition, Ranger Raptor customers now benefit from a standard Tough Bed Spray-in Bedliner for greater durability, strength and usability when compared to a ‘drop in’ or aftermarket bed liner. This bedliner offers:

  • Industrial-strength, two-part coating for long-lasting protection
  • Factory-applied with automated precision to ensure a smooth, even coat
  • Uniform, high-grip textured surface helps minimise load slippage, gouging and scratching
  • Restricts moisture between the liner and the bed
  • Meets rigorous Ford engineering specifications, including impact testing
  • Retains Ford’s standard five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty

Since its introduction in 2018, the Ford Performance Ranger Raptor has been updated with features including an electric front-passenger seat to give both driver and passengers ease of adjustment, as well as upgraded Bi-LED headlighting to bring greater forward vision and improved visibility to other road-users. 

Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection was also standardised across the Ranger line-up – including the Ranger Raptor – in 2019, and most recently, the FordPass Connect embedded modem was rolled out across the range. This ‘connected car’ technology pairs with the FordPass smartphone app to unlock a range of new connected services and remote vehicle functions to simplify the Ranger ownership experience.

“I know that for many of our customers with a spirit of adventure, it’s heartening right now that their Ranger Raptor or Ranger Wildtrak is at the ready, so they can take full advantage of it once the current situation eases,” added Birkic.

“What’s more, we will be adding to what we offer in 2020 – not only with the updates to Ranger we’ve made this month, including FordPass Connect on every model, but with more lifestyle choices to take on that off-road adventure, to stand apart with the capability and assurance Ranger is known for.”

In addition to a five-year, unlimited kilometre full factory warranty, every Ranger is eligible for the Ford Service Benefits program, designed to keep customers on the road longer, at participating Ford dealerships. With long 15,000km/12-month service intervals, A and B log-book services for the first four years/60,000km are set at a maximum of $299 per service.   

Further adding to the ownership experience, Ford Service Benefits also bring Ranger owners a Service Loan Car, Auto Club Membership including Roadside Assistance as well as sat-nav map updates. 

The updated Ford Ranger Wildtrak, Ford Ranger Wildtrak X and Ford Performance Ranger Raptor are now available in Ford Australia showrooms.
