Ford is expanding its Ranger pickup offering with a high-specification limited-edition model, the Stormtrak.
The Stormtrak model adds premium touches to the popular Wildtrak model, with distinctive styling and practical touches to appeal to consumers looking to combine their active work and personal lifestyle needs with one vehicle.
Ford Ranger Stormtrak: Specification Upgrades
A striking red paint job is unique to the Stormtrak, while Frozen White and Blue Lightning paint options are also available. Red grille inserts continue the theme, with LED headlights sitting alongside to add improved visibility and impressive road presence.
Bonnet and bodyside decals add dramatic stripes to the Ford Ranger, while three-dimensional Stormtrak badges ensure everybody knows what vehicle you’re driving. A gloss-black sports bar and rear bumper finish off the visual accoutrements.
The design touches continue inside, where the Stormtrak features model-specific seats upholstered in the same supple leather as the iconic Ranger Raptor. Embroidered Stormtrak logos and bolsters trimmed with technical fabric accent the cabin, with tinted graphite interior surfaces and red stitching throughout mirroring the Stormtrak’s exterior palette.
Ford Ranger Stormtrak: Cargo Upgrades
Retaining the Wildtrak’s one-tonne payload capacity and 3.5-tonne towing capability, the Stormtrak adds practical elements. The load box benefits from a bed liner, load divider and Ford’s new Power Roller Shutter.
The new load cover – an option on the Wildtrak but standard on the new Sotrmtrak – brings power operation to the popular Roller Shutter load bed cover. Customers are able to open and close the shutter via the key fob, or using buttons located in the load bed or inside the cabin on the dashboard. For safety, sensors provide an anti-pinch function to prevent trapped fingers or damaged cargo.
Ford Ranger Stormtrak: Powertrain
Stormtrak models will only be available with the 2.0-litre bi-turbo EcoBlue diesel engine fitted to other models in the pickup range. Producing 213hp and 500Nm of torque, it’s amongst the most powerful in the segment.
A standard selectable four-wheel-drive system offers confident off-road performance, while its 10-speed automatic gearbox ensures an effortless driving experience.
Ford Ranger Stormtrak: Pricing and Availability
The Stormtrak model will be built in limited numbers to guarantee exclusivity and is expected to arrive at Ford dealers across Europe from October 2021. Prices have yet to be announced, but we expect the Stormtrak to cost slightly more than the Ranger Thunder, so expect a price tag of around £34,000 plus VAT.
