Ford of Europe has today revealed the Ranger Tremor as a more affordable version of the highly-specified Wildtrak X, but it hasn’t been announced for New Zealand.
Based on the Ranger XLT, the Tremor features all the upgraded chassis and technology upgrades as the Wildtrak X including its new all-wheel drive system.
It also comes with the same revised suspension geometry such as the widened track and extended arch mouldings. That also means it rides on a set of Bilstein Position-Sensitive Dampers and receives a set of 17-inch wheels fitted with General Grabber AT3 all-terrain tyres.
The difference between the two off-road oriented variants is that the Tremor does not come with the more highly appointed features found on the Wildtrak X.
That means you get a water-resistant vinyl-clad floor and seats instead of leather and suede, halogen front and rear lights over LED units, a different front bumper and no vibrant orange paintwork or trim.
However, the Tremor does come with an optional pre-wired overhead switch pack which offers six inputs for winches, LED light bars and other equipment, as well as unique Boulder Grey exterior details and a darkened grille.
A new tubular sports bar has also been fitted to the tray along with aluminium side steps under the doors and two exposed tow hooks up front. Ford’s new Flexible Rack System can also be fitted as an option.
There’s no word on whether the Ranger Tremor will be offered in New Zealand at this stage with the same being said for Australia.
New Zealand customers can however expect the Ford Ranger Wildtrak X to arrive into showrooms in the second half of this year.
