One would hope American brands aren't determined to gangster its US customers into full-size pickups or going Asian if they don't like it.
Ford is stupid to not sell this here. This would destroy Tacoma sales.
The rear door looks like they yanbked it from the new Colorado. I don't see many people going to Ford instead of Toyota. A few may. This will sell here tho. Finally all those Ranger faithfuls will have a new model to "aspire" to. ;)
This is good news for me. All I need is a small truck. I don't need a RAM or Silverado.My 1999 Tacoma is on its last legs. I look forward to a Ford.
This is just a clone side on of the 2005- Toyota Hilux anyway.
Ford would be retarded not to bring this here. Though if I had a choice between this, the chevy or the vw, I'd take the vw hands down
Anonymous 10:41AM beat me to it.. this new Ranger is tall, slab-sided and narrow, obviously intended as a competitor to the non-US HiLux, and not the lower, wider, plusher Tacoma.
If it comes to the US will they bring the diesel and a manual trans version in? Now that Mihandra is dead in the water coming to the US, which compact PU manufacturer will be the 1st to bring in a diesel?
wtf 6-speed... the Colorado was introduced way way after this (and it's Mazda sybling) was introduced. If anything, the Colorado ripped it's doors from the new Ranger...
Tacoma & Frontier have done poorly in recent years, and I suspect this similar offering would too. Good call Ford. Keep it in the 3rd world.
