Hot on the heels of the new Ford Ranger Black, which was recently unveiled for Brazil, two more limited edition variants of The Blue Oval’s mid-size pickup – the 2021 Ford Ranger Stormtrak and Ranger Wolftrak – have been revealed for the European market.
The 2021 Ford Ranger Stormtrak is a premium truck offering distinctive styling, premium features for customers that value outstanding capability, and a generous specification to support their active work and lifestyle needs. Meanwhile, the Ranger Wolftrak is an intrepid, rugged pickup designed around the needs of customers who work outdoors and desire commanding off-road performance without compromising comfort and desirability.
“Customers love the bold style and tough capability of our Ranger pickup, so we’ve developed the new Stormtrak and Wolftrak limited edition models to offer even more of both,” said Hans Schep, general manager, Commercial Vehicles, Ford of Europe. “Stormtrak combines striking looks with added luxury touches and features for active lifestyles, while Wolftrak’s rugged off-road performance helps it comfortably take owners far off the beaten track for work and fun.”
Based on the Ranger Wildtrak, the new 2021 Ford Ranger Stormtrak delivers an even higher specification with further enhanced comfort features and unique finishes. A limited run of vehicles will be built to ensure exclusivity, in both Double Cab and Super Cab specifications.
All Ranger Stormtrak models are equipped with Ford’s range-topping bi-turbo 2.0L EcoBlue diesel engine that produces 213 PS (210 horsepower) and 500 Nm (369 pound-feet) of torque. A selectable four-wheel-drive system is standard, as is Ford’s 10‑speed automatic gearbox.
The Ranger Stormtrak comes with an exclusive red grille insert, LED headlights, and standard underbody protection. Exterior color options include Rapid Red, Frozen White, and Blue Lightning, while unique hood and body side decals, three-dimensional badging, and a black rear bumper and sports bar round out the exterior styling.
In addition, a bedliner, load divider, and Ford’s new Power Roller Shutter are included as standard equipment. The Ranger Stormtrak also retains the 1.0-ton (2,000 pounds) payload and 3,500 kg (7,716 pounds) maximum towing weight delivered by the Wildtrak.
Inside, the Ranger Stormtrak features unique leather seats with embroidered Stormtrak logos and bolsters trimmed with technical fabric. Tinted Graphite interior surfaces and red stitching throughout mirror the exterior design as well.
Meanwhile, the Ranger Wolftrak, based on the Ranger XLT series, is powered by Ford’s 2.0L EcoBlue diesel engine that produces 170 PS (168 horsepower) and comes with the choice of a six-speed manual transmission or 10‑speed automatic gearbox. A selectable four-wheel-drive system with shift-on-the-fly function, electronically-locking rear differential, and all-terrain tires are standard.
Ford anticipates Ranger Wolftrak will appeal to customers in farming, forestry, and outdoor pursuit industries as well as private buyers. The Wolftrak also offers a 1.0-ton (2,000 pounds) payload and 3,500 kg (7,716 pounds) of max towing, a standard protective bed liner, and an optional manual load bed cover or Aeroklas full load canopy finished in matte black.
The Wolftrak features a unique long-leg tubular sports bar, Conquer Grey or Sea Gray paint options, a matte black grille, underbody protection, 17-inch black alloy wheels, black Wolftrak badges, and plastic molded side steps.
Exclusive touches in Ranger Wolftrak’s cabin include Wolftrak badges, a matte black instrument panel and door spears, and all-weather floor mats. Ford’s SYNC 3 connectivity and navigation system with an 8-inch touchscreen is standard as well.
Ford’s new Power Roller Shutter, standard on the Ranger Stormtrak and optional on the Wildtrak, gives owners the ability to open and close the shutter via the key fob, buttons located in the load bed, or inside the cabin on the dashboard. Sensors provide an anti-pinch function to help prevent trapped fingers or damaged cargo.
The new Ranger Stormtrak and Wolftrak limited editions will arrive in dealerships across Europe beginning in October this year, joining the Ford Ranger Raptor, rally-inspired Ranger MS-RT, and recently-announced Ranger chassis cab.
