Good review. I do wish they'd given the Raptor some more grunt though! I think putting the 10 speed auto behind the 3.2 diesel would've done the trick.

The 4 cylinder petrol engine they're getting in the US seems decent, wonder if it will make it to Oz?

I like it and I think it will sell well. I’ve both Chevy and Dodge half tons, a Nissan Hardbody, and 3 Rangers, and currently a Frontier. I like the midsize crew cab setup the best. While it doesn’t have the capability of current 1/2 tons it has more than enough capability for what I need to do, room for the kids, and it fits in the garage. All I tow is a little fishing boat and a 21’ camper and it handles those very well. A basic, low option Ranger was great for me years ago but what I have now is much more usable for the family. I think Ford is doing the right thing not making this bare bones. They have to make something to be competitive and I think they have done just that.

There is talk about it being an option here...the turbo will give it some torque lower in the rev range, but it won't be anywhere near a diesel. Maybe for those who just use them as a car, the 4 cyl petrol might be better.

I agree, and they'd do much better in a city environment than the diesel, not that I've experienced or heard of any DPF issues with the Rangers.

We don't seem to have many problems with them here...apart from the oil pump not working after an oil change, but we all heard about that one pretty quick. More a home oil change issue. The Ranger has been outselling the Toyota Hi Lux for some time now, despite Toyota dropping chunks off the price.

Yeah, as Silk said, very few issues with the 5 cylinder diesel in the Rangers here. My company has hundreds of them in service all over Oz, and they've proven very reliable. The one I'm currently driving is at 170,000km and has had nothing but regular services every 15,000km. They're the best selling vehicle in Australia, there'd be a huge outcry if the engines were no good.

Current Rangers have EGR and DPF, what extra emission gear do US spec Transits have?

As far as I know they're the same setup. Come to think of it we had 3, a '15, '16, and '17, forgot about the new one. The '15 and '16 had metal shavings go throughout the system from the fuel pump, which both had new fuel systems replaced under warranty. But after that they were never the same and would go through sensors, a DEF tank heater, and some other nick-knack issues. Would always be real interesting to have the engine go in degrade issues driving through the mountains... The '17 hadn't had issues yet before I left.

Interesting. Wonder if where they're built could be a factor? Our Rangers come from Thailand, and the general fit and finish is excellent.

Not bad looking, but too [censored] big!

I saw one up in Michigan back in September. I think they look better in person.. Very Honda Ridgeline like depending on the angle of the camera.

Just saw this article that says the left front tire has to be removed in order to change oil on the new Ranger along with removing 9 push pins to remove a cover and four other bolts for a module cover. That's for the filter and oil change.

Yes, the things that may be required -- emphasis on "may be required -- to change the oil & filter has become quite an issue for some.

FWIW, as noted on the other thread, removing the front tire isn't required; it simply ensures greater access to the oil filter via the fender well. Also, the "module cover" in question is actually a metal shield that protects the oil pan. The fact that the shield exists isn't surprising on a truck. What is surprising is the number of Saturday morning "mechanics" who find removing four bolts to gain access to the sump plug a somewhat daunting task.
