2019 Ford Ranger Wildtrak

By now, you may already be aware of the relatively-new 2.0-liter Biturbo engine available across the 2019 Ford Ranger lineup in the Philippines. It debuted alongside the 2019 Ranger Raptor and Ranger Wildtrak, together with the new 10-speed transmission. However, not everyone’s aware of the nitty gritty of Ford’s latest powertrain and the company’s more than willing to share three important things to take away from the new 2.0-liter Biturbo diesel engine.

The 2.0-liter Biturbo diesel engine was initially developed for the Ranger Raptor, meaning it has optimal performance exclusive for off-roading. When Ford engineers decided to put the same engine under the hood of the Wildtrak lineup, it only meant one thing: it’s getting serious for the Ranger pickup truck. Not only that, the improved automatic transmission now has 10 gears – committing to more flexible power and better fuel economy.

The new engine and transmission work together by maintaining optimal gear for best efficiency. Even better, its application to the Ranger Raptor grants the truck extreme high-speed off-roading that can be achieved through its different drive modes.

Bragging aside, the new powertrain lives to prove its capability in handling the most demanding and roughest terrains. The transmission is also found in the F-150 Raptor and the Mustang, it has been tested in extreme hot and cold temperatures, and even at high altitudes. We’ve played with it in Zambales’ lahar field, which is where we first experienced what we could only read off the brochure back then. It did not disappoint – the pull of the Biturbo engine lives up to its claims.

Engineered to deliver constant power and torque, the new engine utilizes all gears depending on the driving conditions to offer the best fuel efficiency. For example, if you suddenly become aggressive on the pedal, the transmission will skip-shift to maintain higher performance. So, no matter where you bring your workhorse, either in the desert or in the city, it will adjust.

The engine has 211 hp and 500 Nm of torque but the story does not end there. The truck is capable of 3.5 tons of towing capacity and 800-mm water wading capacity. Together, the Ranger Wildtrak and the Ranger Raptor, aren’t just some trucks one can easily mess with.
