I'm interested to see this in person I own two Rangers in the past and they were good trucks but this looks like an F-150 and Tacoma had a one night stand and 9 months later. Look forward to seeing in person

I wonder what version of the 2.3T they are using. Or if they are changing it up just for the US Ranger.

Needs more Raptor...

It sounds like the Raptor version is going to be shown in early Feb. Not a bad looking midsize truck.

So conservative with this thing. One powertrain option. Almost like they want it to fail. I'll be buying a mid 2000s Ranger with 4x4, manual and a durable, albeit pretty weak V6.

I like it but, blimey, it's not massively different to our current European one....and I think I prefer the nose on ours!

Has anyone seen the physical size specifications for the new Ranger yet? I'd like to know how it compares to the 2004 or 2005 Sport Trac.

Agreed.
Not everyone wants a box you cant haul anything in. I had a Ranger for years, it was a regular cab and had a regular box. I loved that truck, but this new version, it's nothing more than a SUV without as much cab space, a bigger trunk, and is totally worthless to me.

Why does it need a V8 again?
