Ford Confirms Limited Edition Ranger Wildtrak X Will Return For 2021

Back in October, Ford revealed that it was bringing back the Ranger Wildtrak X, a feature-rich version of the regular Wildtrak, for the 2020 model year. Now, Ford New Zealand has revealed that the Wildtrak X will return once again for the 2021 model year after all 150 2020 examples sold out rather quickly.

The 2021 Ford Ranger Wildtrak X will come with many of the same features and upgrades as the 2020 model, albeit with a few changes. It’s based on the Wildtrak with Ford’s 2.0L bi-turbo engine that produces 210 horsepower and 369 horsepower, which is backed up by the automaker’s 10-speed automatic transmission.

On the outside, the Wildtrak X can be identified by its 20.5-inch LED light bar, a push bar, unique 18-inch wheels with a 35mm offset, black fender flares, side steps, and a unique “sailplane” design integrated into the sports bar. The X also comes equipped with Ford’s Power Roller Shutter bed cover standard, a unique front grille design with twin nostrils, and a host of black accents including the roof and box rails, lower bumper insert, and fog light bezels. Inside, the Wildtrak X has unique seats as well.

“Since we first launched the Ranger Wildtrak X in the second half of 2020, it has proven popular with customers because it built on those core thoroughbred Ranger qualities while offering more personalization for family weekends away,” said Simon Rutherford, Managing Director, Ford New Zealand. “With the arrival of the more aggressively designed 2021 Ford Ranger Wildtrak X, we aim to ensure it remains front-of-mind for customers.”

The 2021 Ford Ranger Wildtrak X is scheduled to arrive at dealerships in Q2 of 2021 and will feature a starting MSRP of $75,490 AUS ($56,876 USD).

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

  1. Ford Australia always the best Ford cars hands down. I wish we could get the cars they have down there. Both the HSV holdens and FPV Fords. Typhoons, Boss 335s, XR6Ts, XR8s, Falcon Utes, the old Falcons, XR5 Mondeos, MK2 RS Focus, GTSR W1 Maloos and Commodores, Ranger Raptors, Everest Wildtraks, Colorado Sports Cats, etc. Even the Aussie Mopars were cool. Even Europe had better Fords that the US. The RS200 sports car, the Capri RS, The Ford Sierra XR8 and RS500 and the psychotic Cosworth Escort. It’d be nice if we could get that kind of stuff for the US.
