London Balling: Custom Ranger Wildtrak Rocks the U.K.

By -

YouTuber picks up his dream truck, a Ranger Wildtrak customized by DV8. Why can’t we get these in America?! 

In this video by Team Richey, host Craig Richey can barely contain his enthusiasm. He’s going to pick up his dream ride. And, as he lives England, his dream ride is a Ford Ranger Wildtrak 4X4. It has been customized by DV8 Works and it is bloody brilliant!

After leaving the dealership, he puts Ludacris‘ “Move B*tch Get Out The Way” and rides home. It is a commanding truck that definitely tells every car on the road step aside. Powered by a 3.2L engine, the Wildtrak is a torquey truck that makes about 200 hp.

And it looks awesome.

Richey says “Let’s do a tour of this bad boy. This is my dream car.” He and his crew decide a good name for the Wildtrak is the “Hustle Mobile” and “Mutha’ Trucker.”

“This is more than a car,” Richey explains. “It’s only a truck, but it means more to me than a truck.” He spent 4 1/2 years working hard to save for this Ranger. And he is thrilled to finally be behind the wheel. “It’s also probably the biggest and baddest in the U.K!”

The DV8 edition of the Ranger Wildtrak includes 20″ rims, and larger tires. The wheel fenders are widened, and the truck sports some subtle but sharp DV8 gray-on-black graphics as well as DV8 badging.

Also custom is the grille. It is simple, clean, but bold. A nice touch.

A chrome fender adds some extra swagger to the front end, as well as additional lights. The DV8 edition is lifted and has a upgraded suspension.

A cool effect comes from the smoked rear lights. Says Richey “They look more stealth.”

The interior is slick, and nicely combines the technology with the sporty styling.

It’s a fun video because not only do we get to see a kickass Wildtrak, but we can certainly relate to the thrill of finally owning that truck you’ve had your eye on for years.
