    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?

    Need to see it in person. I am a bit shocked that there is only one powertrain choice

    It doesn't if it were actually a small truck. The current 3.3L NA V6 in the F150 would be more than enough for a small work truck. They phoned this truck in.

    No regular cab
    Short box only
    Only one engine (and a turbo 4 at that)
    No manual
    TOO BIG

    I have stood next to one of these and it is really not much smaller than an F150. Width is the only noticeably smaller dimension, but it's otherwise huge.

    How does it compare size wise to the Colorado/Canyon?

    Quite similar, which are also enormous compared to their earlier gen.

    The small Ranger never had a V8. In a perfect world a small regcab should have a 400hp+ V8. I would trade my C6 for a factory made 2003 S10 Xtreme with a LS3. I love fast and small trucks.

    Think I'd rather have an F-150 with the new Coyote and 10-speed in Blue Jeans. :)

    Old Rangers were pretty durable and great pick ups. Hopefully this won't be as crazy expensive as the Tacoma is.
