THE 2015 Ford Ranger Wildtrak six-speed auto will wear a $60,090 showroom sticker, making it one of Australia’s most expensive tradies.

The $60K ask for the dual-cab 4x4 pick-up is well north of the Toyota Hilux SR5 auto and Nissan’s new-gen Navara ST-X, both $54,490.

The refreshed Ranger flagship is also several thousand more than Holden’s Colorado Z71 automatic ($57,190), though the Volkswagen Amarok Ultimate ($65,290) and manual-only Toyota 79-Series Landcruiser GXL ($65,990) are dearer again.
