2019 Ford Ranger





The blue one is a prototype for the 2019 model year. Which is basically the same one that has been on sale in many countries since 2015. 
Although Ford said many times we would get a specific model. We obviously won't. 

You can compare the 2019 with the current one and, except for the grille and bumper, they are indeed the same truck.
Which is OK, since the current Ranger looks just fine. 

I noticed the prototype is a right hand drive model. Which would mean that the 2019 revisions will also be applied to the international version. 

Another US prototype was caught just a few days ago.
Again, looking exactly the same as the current international model. 

So basically, Ford is pulling an Ecosport with the "new" Ranger: 
"This one's not for you. We'll make a special one just for the US. No we won't" 

Nissan will follow very soon with a "Special for the US" new Frontier...

Any aluminum like the F150? This truck may eat into some of its bigger brothers sales.

Amazing how fast things fell apart at Ford after Mulally left

this ranger reminds me of a 1998-1999 Toyota Tundra ....too curvy-soft, bland and generic looking. The back end/ 3/4 view in the last photo looks not too bad...but the front end and the side profile just to wishy washy dull.

So I saw this on another site, if you click on the photos exc, and notice.... I don't think that is in the US, plus it's a right hand drive... I think this blue one is a slight update to the international version.

The copper one below seems more likely a US one, but still think the front end will look different.

Too long for my needs. What a subcompact pickup truck but they do not exist in North America market. Have to go to Mexico and South America to find them for sale.
