Ford Ranger 3.0 V6 AWD Wildtrak (2023) review – Setting a new benchmark

The new Ford Ranger sets a new standard in the double cab bakkie segment with enhanced powertrains, a heavily revised chassis and design elements crafted to make Ranger ownership as seamless and enjoyable as possible. Find out why we sing its praises here.

The popular Ford Ranger Wildtrak is back and this time it sports a more powerful 3.0-litre V6 turbodiesel engine with more grunt than ever. Not only has the engine been upgraded but the engineers at Ford have been through the    renowned T6 chassis and transformed it into something even better than before. Suspension tweaks and geometry changes make the new Ranger Wildtrak drive like a limo, all while retaining its capability and off-road prowess.
