With the off-road focused vehicle scene arguably hotter than ever, Ford continues to roll out more and more variants that are equally capable both on and off the pavement. This includes the next-generation Ford Ranger, which has launched in select global markets already ahead of its arrival in the U.S. later this year. That lineup already includes trims like the luxurious Platinum and the off-road-focused Wildtrak and Ranger Raptor, and now, the Ford Ranger Wildtrak X has debuted as somewhat of a middle ground between the latter two.
The Ford Ranger Wildtrak X looks a bit different than its brethren courtesy of a unique front grille with integrated driving lights and Cyber Orange accents, Wildtrak X badging and lettering on the hood, black front and rear Blue Oval badges, cast aluminum side steps, a steel bash plate, and an Asphalt Black grille surround, bumper H-bar, wheel-lip moldings, fender vents, mirror caps, door handles, and rear bumper. Out back, Ford’s new Flexible Rack System comes standard and features a sliding load rack and folding roof racks to carry additional cargo.
Inside the cabin, the Wildtrak X sports unique features such as leather seats with Miko suede trim and Wildtrak X embroidery, with Terra suede present on the glovebox, instrument cluster, and door trim. Finally, Cyber Orange contrast stitching is present on the seats, steering wheel, gear shifter, doors, and the upper glovebox, while the auxiliary switch pack is standard equipment.
The Ford Ranger Wildtrak X features a 30mm wider track than the standard mid-size pickup, as well as 26mm more ground clearance, which helps make room for a set of unique 17-inch wheels wrapped in 265/70 R17 General Grabber AT3 all-terrain tires. Underneath, the Wildtrak X has been fitted with Bilstein position-sensitive dampers, while seven drive modes – Normal, Eco, Tow/Haul, Slippery, Mud/Ruts, Sand, and Rock Crawl – are available, along with Trail Turn Assist and Trail Control.
The Blue Oval hasn’t announced pricing or availability for the all-new Ford Ranger Wildtrak X, but that information will be provided when we get closer to the lineup gap-filling model’s official launch.

Is that coming to the US?
That’s what I was wondering too. My assumption is that this is a global variant since the truck hasn’t even been introduced in the U.S. yet. I like the looks (not the color so much) better than the other trim levels, but I am really interested in seeing what the Tremor will look like.
Same here if it can look like this I would be interested
I’m thinking this is just a ROW Tremor
