If the Raptor is too much for you, then you should consider the upcoming 2024 Ford Ranger Wildtrak X. Like Raptor, Wildtrak X is also an off-road truck. However, this one slots between the Wildtrak and Raptor models. It comes with a twin-turbo engine for now.
As the Ford Ranger is a global truck, we expect to see the Wildtrak X variant in different parts of the world, including the United States. For now, this model is available in Australia. Ranger is a mid-size truck with good capabilities and a nice design. It is also a very reliable model. The Wildtrak X will add a couple of distinctive features, so let’s dive right in.
This pickup truck will not offer more power, like the Raptor. However, the 2024 Ford Ranger Wildtrak X will look quite unique and upright. For a start, this model has a new grille, which has integrated lights. On top of that, the front fascia wears beautiful Cyber Orange accents and distinctive Wildtrak X badges.
Since this is an off-road version, it gets aluminum side steps, skid plates, and additional blacked-out elements. There is also a Ford Flexible Rack system, and it is standard. This system comes with a folding and sliding roof rack, so you’ll be able to store more equipment. Beside new exterior colors, the Ranger Wildtrak X has wider tires, additional ground clearance, and sporty 17-inch wheels.
On the inside, the forthcoming 2024 Ford Ranger Wildtrak X is very upscale. First of all, Blue Oval will add plush leather upholstery with gorgeous Miko suede trim. The cabin can be recognized by its Cyber Orange accents, contrast stitching, and suede covers. On top of that, the Wildtrak X pickup offers a larger 12.4-inch display and B&O sound system.
You can also choose between numerous driving modes, which include: Normal, Tow/Haul, Eco, Mud/Ruts, and Slippery. Ford provides various driver-assistance aids for improved safety. Overall, the interior is sporty and upright. The cabin room is ample, and the level of comfort is admirable.
