Place your order for the limited Ford Ranger Stormtrak

Ford is making a habit of introducing limited edition Rangers. First it was the Ranger Thunder. Next will be the Ranger Stormtrak.

“The Ranger Thunder was exceptionally well received when we launched it a year ago, proving unequivocally that there is strong demand for range-topping models that offer something different from the norm,” said Doreen Mashinini, general manager of marketing for Ford South Africa. In Stormtrak guise, the Ranger gains several muscular, attention-grabbing design elements, including a striking black mesh grille with red inserts, a black insert in the lower section of the front bumper, black decals for the bonnet and doors, black roof rails and 18-inch alloy wheels finished in gloss black, and Ford’s new Power Roller Shutter for the rear load compartment. Adding further versatility is the adjustable bed divider kit that makes it easy for the owner to compartmentalise the cargo area according to the size of the items being carried – thus preventing goods from shifting around when driving. A drop-in bedliner provides a useful 12-volt socket for powering accessories such as a camping fridge. Standard features include the Sync3 infotainment system with embedded navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as FordPass functionality that allows the owner to remotely access numerous vehicle features from their phone – such as remote and scheduled starts to either cool or heat the cabin. In terms of safety, the Stormtrak will boast Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Forward Collision Alert, Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Keeping Alert and Lane Keeping Aid, Driver Alert System, and Semi-Automatic Parallel Park Assist. The Stormtrak will be powered by a 2.0-litre bi-turbo developing 157kW and 500Nm linked to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Pricing for the Ranger Stormtrak will be announced closer to launch in late Q3. Source: QuickPic
