Now this looks like it would be a fun truck. Perhaps Ford will bring the ranger back to the US ...

This seems like like something I would expect a v6 ecoboost in.

I am also going to predict 4 more reposts of the same video.

Needs a lift-kit (just joking)
I was looking at Rangers before they discontinued them, but the interior was too small for me.
I look forward to seeing the redesign in the future.

That does look like a fun truck. My wife wants the new Bronco when it comes out, hopefully there will be a similar version since it will be based on the Ranger platform.

More a Taco TuRD killer than an improvement over original raptor.

OG raptor is probably way more cushy, so no need to ponder.

At 45-55k they'll sell a million,

Ranger Raptor doesn't sound right, though.. maybe offer a Raptor package, but it's still a ranger.

Damn. I want one.

It would be a perfect complement to the bigger brother....which is complete overkill for my off road driving, so then I could a also have a little truck that was complete overkill for my offload driving. Now how do I explain that to the wife?

I want one for sure. I'm betting it'll have the 2.7L Ecoboost in it which should make good power. I just get the feeling it'd be ridiculous fun.

I know exactly how I'd do it "Honey it's better on gas and it'll be my commuter vehicle" While thinking to myself "So I can beat the brakes off it on the dirt trails I see on the way home from work..."

Looks Tacomish like. Competing with Toyota Tacoma? mid size...The stigma of the Ford Ranger is that its a grocery , errands round town type of truck. I am spoiled with the room that the Raptor offers and the menacing look. Let Ford do its marketing, next thing they will tell you it runs on chicken shit mixed with blueberries. This truck does not look like anything special IMO. And BTW fuck gas mileage
