I don't think that will do very well in the states. The people that want the ranger back, want the RANGER. Not that thing.

The offroad model of the Ranger looks pretty good.




I saw one in person last time I was in the UK, and I would probably buy it for a DD if I moved back there.

Doesn't matter that it looks like a Honda Ridgeline. It's all about keeping the UAW happy with another product line.....

I'm with you, though. That truck is a pretty weak attempt at a midsize TRUCK. Cover the rear end and put a windshield wiper on it, and it might be a cool looking suv.....

I wonder what price range it'll fall in. That was another big seller of the previous model.

I agree. Iv had several rangers including the fx4 level 2. This looks like a converted suv to me. I love the old Rangers. Damit now I want another one lol.

You have to admit. A mini raptor would actually be pretty funny.
