Interesting; This is Ford's "New Beetle"; A reintroduced vehicle with all of the simplicity and desirability of the original design engineered away....

No such thing as simple in today's vehicles.

They took the appeal of the original ranger out-- Apart from the engine which seems pretty appropriate for the application, there's not many reasons to like it. No manual trans and hideously expensive.

The author of the article made a great point-- we're getting a "new" truck in North America that was released a few years ago in other markets, so it's a bit like buying stale bread.

I've been wanting one and am willing to accept the potential bugs and issues. I had a custom home built on 5 acres and need a truck.

Looks like an Escape and F150 got together and had that as a baby. As the owner of 3 Fords...that Fin thing is ugly.

How does this not have a leather-wrapped steering wheel?!

*edit* NVM, looks like that screenshot was from a different model.

They never stopped production of the Ranger overseas. I remember some commercials showing the Ranger fording a stream with water going over the hood.

It looked impressive but I suspect that EcoBoost engine will go Eco-Boom with the water going into the intake.
