2016 Ford Ranger Wildtrak takes after 2015 Ford Everest SUV and it plain as a day that these two resemble each other. This mid-size pickup truck is going to continue to be one of the most popular cars in the class. There are several speculations that Ford is going to abandon 2.2 liter Duratorq but no official information was published. Some experts think that 2.7 l EcoBoost V6 will be placed instead Duratorq. We had a chance to see this engine in 2015 F-150 and it is most likely that same engine is going to be placed in 2016 Bronco. Although there is no official announcement about the engine, there is a plenty of information available to make a decent presentation of 2016 Ford Ranger Wildtrak.
2016 Ford Ranger Wildtrak Engine
As we have already mentioned in the introduction engine offer hasn’t been determined yet but we will present some of them which are most likely to be found under the hood of new Wildtrak. Apart from EcoBoost, Duratorq is still in the game. However, it is not clear whether 2.2l, 2.5l or 3.2l will be the best option for the new Wildtrak. Power figures of these three are very close and they go from 150 horsepower to 197 horsepower. All five of them are five-cylinders and they come with six-speed manual, which is standard, and optional six-speed automatic. Which engine is the best we cannot guess and we can just hope that engineers won’t make a mistake.
