Angular Front Exterior View - 2005 Ford Ranger Reg Cab 112Enlarge Photo
Our colleagues at PickupTrucks.com have posted some spy photos of Ford’s next-gen Ranger pickup in heavy camouflage. The test mule captured in the photos was a crew cab model appearing similar in size to the current Explorer SportTrac, albeit with a more substantial cargo box.
The commentary by PickupTrucks.com suggested that this upcoming “global” Ranger would not be truly global, since the U.S. and Canadian markets will likely be denied this little jewel. They suggest that Ranger buyers in the U.S. and Canada will likely have to make do with a de-contented version of the future F-150.
Check out a recent post HERE at AllPickupTrucks.com where we addressed some remarks by Alan Mulally at the D.C. Auto Show that suggest the Ranger might have a fighting chance in the U.S. after all. Stay tuned to AllPickupTrucks.com as we keep our finger on the pulse of the market slot currently filled by the Ford Ranger.
