The Ford Ranger T6 WildTrak looks set to receive another facelift, with our spies managing to spot an undisguised unit on the streets of Dearborn, Michigan alongside a Ranger Raptor. Both vehicles seen here are right-hand drive, which could indicate they will be destined for our market in the future.

Design-wise, the WildTrak adopts many of the revisions seen on the latest Ranger destined for Thailand and the United States, the latter set to go on sale in early 2019. The front is akin to the range-topping Lariat model that will be sold in the US – there’s a new hexagonal grille with twin bars and the Ranger name stamped on it, and the fog lamp enclosures also adopt a new shape.

However, where the Lariant has an additional bumper trim to cover the lower apron along with a more aggressive skid plate, both these items are absent on the WildTrak. Around the back, the mule gets a similar taillight design as the US-spec Ranger, with the addition of a retractable tonneau cover for the flatbed.

It’s much the same story on the inside as well, with noticeable changes being the new gear selector, seats, tweaked media buttons and ‘WildTrak’ badging on the dashboard. The control dial for the four-wheel drive system appears to be identical to the one found in the current WildTrak we have here.

Currently, the US-spec Ranger is set to go on sale in early 2019, with three models being offered – XL, XLT and Lariat. The WildTrak and Raptor models could be added to the range later on, with the latter already being sold in Thailand, the country where it first made its debut.

All Ranger models in the US are powered by a 2.3 litre EcoBoost four-cylinder petrol engine and a 10-speed automatic transmission. The ‘Bi-Turbo’ wording on the side scuttles suggests the WildTrak will use the 2.0 litre EcoBlue twin-turbo diesel found in the Raptor, which offers 213 PS and 500 Nm of torque, also mated to a 10-speed auto.

The current WildTrak sold in Malaysia is offered with a P5AT 3.2 litre five-cylinder Duratorq engine (197 hp and 470 Nm) paired with a 6R80 six-speed automatic transmission. The WildTrak trim was also available with the ZSD-422 2.2 litre four-cylinder turbodiesel, albeit for a limited time in the past.
