The Return of the Ranger after a seven-year hiatus

Well, it’s back. The Ford Ranger mid-size pickup has returned to the U.S. and in glorious fashion. The pickup made its debut at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit right beside the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado. While it’s not the F-150, the 2019 Ranger will put Ford back in the mid-size pickup fight against the Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon, Nissan Frontier, and most importantly, the venerable Toyota Tacoma.

The addition of the Ranger positions Ford as having the widest-spread pickup lineup in the world. Entries include the new Ranger, the half-ton F-150, the heavy-duty Super Duty lineup, and the commercial medium-duty segment with the F-650 and F-750 cab chassis.

Of course, the Ranger will have its work cut out; the Toyota Tacoma has long been the leader in mid-size trucks and the General Motors twins aren’t too far behind. Let’s see how the 2019 Ranger stacks up.

Believe it or Not, Ford Considered a 13-Speed Automatic Transmission for the Ranger Raptor

Believe it or Not, Ford Considered a 13-Speed Automatic Transmission for the Ranger Raptor

What’s the cut-off for this gear growth?

Ford Australia’s new 2019 Ranger Raptor has made a splash over the last week with its debut in Thailand for the Asia Pacific market. It packs a 2.0-liter turbodiesel and Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission it co-developed with General Motors. Just a few years ago, the industry thought eight-speed automatics were revolutionary. But according to John Fallu, the transmission and driveline engineering manager for Ford Asia Pacific, his team explored the possibility of 12- and 13- speed automatic gearboxes.

The Ranger Raptor is one Mean Little Truck

It’s also beautiful in a rough and rugged way

It’s only February, but doesn’t it feel like we’ve already seen a good amount of new pickups make their debuts this year? It’s hard to complain, though, because these new pickups are showing that they have a lot to offer. The most revealing among these new trucks is the Ford Ranger Raptor, the off-road version of the Ranger pickup that looks like it’s ready to rumble on any road surface it meets. It’s hard not to get excited about the Ranger Raptor, especially when you watch this hype video of the gnarly beast going bonkers in the desert. Not only does it look like it’s at home in that environment, but if you didn’t know any better, you would think that it’s smashing records at the Baja Rally. I never knew a pickup could make my knees weak like the Raptor Ranger just did.

Ford Ranger Raptor Could be US-Bound but Will Drop the Diesel Drivetrain

Ford Ranger Raptor Could be US-Bound but Will Drop the Diesel Drivetrain

It’s not a slam dunk that we’ll see it here, but cross your fingers that we do

The Ford Ranger is coming to the U.S. That’s good news for a lot of people who have been clamoring for a smaller pickup to complement the much larger F-150. But there’s the potential for better news on the horizon with the potential of a Ranger Raptor hitting the scene. The souped-up pickup made its debut in Bangkok last week, and there’s growing momentum that we might see it in American soil at some point in the future. Maybe.

What's Under the Skin of the 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor?

What’s Under the Skin of the 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor?

Highlights include beefy shocks, aluminum control arms, and a Watt’s Link

The 2019 Ranger Raptor is making headlines as it finally debuted in Bangkok, Thailand. As expected, the truck takes the same approach to high-speed off-roading as its big brother, the Ford F-150 Raptor. There are a few major differences, however, not the least of which is the Ranger Raptor’s suspension.

The mid-size truck does use Fox Racing Shocks at all four corners, an independent front suspension, and a solid rear axle. However, the similarities stop there. All four of the Ranger Raptor’s Fox shocks measure 46.6mm in diameter for improved off-road refinement on high-speed bumps compared to the standard Ranger. Fox uses Position Sensitive Damping technology to give the shocks variable rates. With mild bumps, the shocks provide a soft ride thanks to lower damping forces. Driven hard over rough terrain, the Fox shocks provide higher damping deeper into the shocks’ travel. This keeps the truck from hitting its bump stops while still providing a tailored ride in a variety of situations.

The 2019 Ranger Raptor is the Diesel-Drinking Off-Road Beast We've Been Needing

The 2019 Ranger Raptor is the Diesel-Drinking Off-Road Beast We’ve Been Needing

A look at Ford’s new 2.0-liter I-4 turbodiesel

Ford’s new 2019 Ranger Raptor is making big waves as its debut in Thailand reaches America’s shores. Anticipation for the truck garnered nearly limitless speculation from industry analysts and journalists. Everyone basically knew the Ranger Raptor would be wider, taller, have a dolled-up interior, and ride on Fox Racing Shocks. Those were easy guesses. But one thing nobody saw coming was Ford’s new twin-turbo, 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel under the hood.

The new engine was designed to offer more power and better fuel economy, but with less weight than traditional turbodiesels. Ford’s engine testing included running the engine wide open nonstop for 200 hours with both turbos glowing red hot. The engine was then subjected to countless miles of off-road driving and other extreme regimens. The result, hopefully, is an engine that will last the life of the truck without major mechanical issues.

Speaking of the turbos, Ford is using the age-old trick of compounding the turbos. Rather than having two identical turbos, they are different sizes. The smaller, high-pressure turbo works to combat turbo lag since its smaller size allows it to spool more quickly. This turbo then feeds the larger one, which runs at a lower pressure but with much more air volume. Combined – or compounded – the two turbos work to quickly spool at lower engine revs but deliver big boost pressures at higher engine speeds.

Ford’s result is this: 210 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.

The longitudinally mounted engine mates exclusively with Ford’s new 10-speed automatic transmission, which it co-developed with General Motors. Both the engine and transmission are specifically tuned for the Ranger Raptor, including for severe off-road duty.

Despite the Ranger Raptor’s soft, off-road-oriented suspension, it’s rated to tow 5,511 pounds on its standard two-inch receiver hitch. That’s 511 pounds more than the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Duramax is rated to pull. As for power, the Ranger Raptor boasts 29 horsepower more and the same torque figure. Add to that the Ranger Raptor’s four additional gears in its transmission.

This Is It! Meet the 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor!

It debuted for Asian markets, but don’t worry, it’s coming here

Ford has finally pulled the covers off its much-anticipated 2019 Ranger Raptor. This is the hard-core off-road version the world has waited for. It boasts many similar attributes to its big brother, the Ford F-150 Raptor, but benefits from a smaller size, a Watt’s link and coil spring rear suspension, and a twin-turbodiesel powerplant. The debut event took place in Bangkok, Thailand, where pickups are extremely popular. And while Ford hasn’t admitted it yet, the Ranger Raptor will arrive in the U.S. Keep reading to learn all about it.

Teaser of the Week: Ford Ranger Raptor Doing What it Does Best

Teaser of the Week: Ford Ranger Raptor Doing What it Does Best

And the February 7 reveal is fast approaching

Ford just released a third teaser video for its highly anticipated Ranger Raptor. The scripted text emblazed over the moving shots of a camouflaged test mule bombing over terrain say the Ranger Raptor is “Ready for… speed, water, sand, hills, mud, jumps, and anything,” The last phrase then says it’s ready for its reveal. That’s right; the time is growing short for Ford to officially unveil the Ranger Raptor in all its glory.

The event is taking place on February 7, 2018, at Bangkok Auto Show in Thailand. While Thailand might seem an odd choice rather than the U.S. or Australia, the country actually has quite the love for pickups and off-roading. No worries, though, both Americans and Australians will soon have Ranger Raptors arriving in their showrooms.

While Ford hasn’t even hinted at the powerplant under the Ranger Raptor’s hood, a report from Motoring suggests the truck is getting an all-new 2.0-liter high-output four-cylinder turbodiesel. The specific output wasn’t announced, but the new (Power Stroke?) turbodiesel would be more powerful than the current 3.2-liter inline-five turbodiesel, which makes 197 horsepower and 347 pound-feet of torque. The report also says Ford’s new 10-speed automatic transmission will be the sole gearbox.

While the 10-speed auto is an obvious component, the small-displacement four-cylinder turbodiesel is a stretch – at least for U.S.-bound Ranger Raptors. Ford’s peppy 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 or even the standard-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 would be a more plausible engine for North America. It seems we’ll have to wait until February 7 to find out.

Expect the Ranger Raptor to arrive in U.S. showrooms as a 2019 model sometime in the first half of next year. Prices are expected to compete with the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, which starts at $40,400 and increases with options. Perhaps Ford will also offer a turbodiesel and gasoline engine option, just like the Colorado ZR2, as well. Again, tune in to TopSpeed.com on February 7 for all the details.

Ford Ranger Returns To America With a Vengeance

Mid-size pick-up sets its sights on the Toyota Tacoma and Chevrolet Colorado

Six years. That’s how long it’s been since we had the Ford Ranger in our lives. It took some time and a set of fortuitous circumstances, but after waiting since 2011 for the Ranger to make its comeback in the U.S., Ford finally delivered. The Ranger is back, and it’s looking to reclaim its status as one of the best and most popular entry-level pickup trucks in the market.

2019 Ford Ranger Spied in Thailand

2019 Ford Ranger Spied in Thailand

This mid-cycle refresh of the Global T6 Ranger show possible U.S. appearance

Ford appears to be mildly updating its current Global T6 Ranger pickup for 2019 in conjunction with the truck’s debut for the North American market. Though unconfirmed, these spy shots reveal a completely uncamouflaged Ranger wearing a different grille and sporting upgraded LED-encrusted headlights. It’s likely these same changes will accompany the U.S.-spec Ranger when it debuts ahead of the 2019 model year, possibly at this month’s Detroit Auto Show.

The likelihood of this spied pickup wearing the U.S.-spec front end is validated by a Reddit user who claims (and later verified) to be a Ford designer. Over 11 months ago the user said the U.S.-spec Ranger would be a facelifted T6 with a unique grille and headlights.

The current T6 Ranger was last updated for 2015, so a refresh for 2019 is highly probable. Making the U.S.-spec and global versions use the same parts would be an easy cost-cutting and logistics-simplifying move. Of course, the U.S.-spec Ranger will have slight differences, including left-hand drive, different license plate bracketry, and perhaps some different wheel and tire combinations. Then there are the greasy bits under the truck.

The 2019 Ford Ranger Likely Debuting At Detroit Auto Show

The 2019 Ford Ranger Likely Debuting At Detroit Auto Show

January’s Detroit Auto Show will be very eventful

We know for a fact the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and 2019 Ram 1500 will make their appearances at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit come January, but it seems Ford isn’t arriving empty-handed either. There is a very strong chance the all-new Ford Ranger will make its first public appearance.

The 2019 Ranger is a major milestone for Ford, having been absent from the mid-size pickup segment since discontinuing the last-generation Ranger in 2011. This new pickup will be larger than the 2011 Ranger found here in North America, as it’s based on the global T6 Ranger platform. It will compete directly with the Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, Nissan Frontier, and Toyota Tacoma.

Ford’s plans for a Raptor version of the Ranger are a poorly kept secret, but it’s unknown if that hard-core off-roader will debut as a 2019 version or come later. Ford has also been seen testing an FX4 version, which will slot between the standard 4WD Ranger and the Ranger Raptor.

Upcoming Ford Ranger Raptor Might Go Diesel

Upcoming Ford Ranger Raptor Might Go Diesel

Ford could take advantage of its new EcoBlue engine lineup

Rumors of Ford’s upcoming mid-size Ranger pickup are compiling. That’s especially true for the highly anticipated Ranger Raptor, the hard-core version built to hang with the Ford F-150 Raptor in high-speed off-roading. But of the rumors and insider information about the Ranger Raptor, none have seemed to nail down what will power this baby beast – until now. Australian automotive outlet The Motor Report is citing “sources familiar with the new model’s development” that Ford is developing a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel with at least as much power in the Ranger’s current 3.2-liter five-cylinder turbodiesel. The new 2.0-liter will be a member of Ford’s new EcoBlue turbodiesel family and will generate no less than 236 horsepower and 347 pound-feet of torque while getting better fuel economy and producing fewer emissions.

The EcoBlue engine family debuted in 2016 and is rolling out in markets across the world in the Transit van. Here in the U.S., the Ranger Raptor will likely be our first taste of the EcoBlue. Ford says durability is improved 20 percent over the EcoBlue’s predecessor, the 2.2-liter TDCi. It features a low-inertia turbocharger with cutting-edge alloy materials for better resistance against high temperatures, a new high-pressure fuel injection system that’s quieter and more responsive, and an offset crankshaft within the iron block that’s said to reduce side-load pressure on pistons against the cylinder walls. Interestingly, rather than a chain drive for the overhead camshafts and oil pump, the new EcoBlue uses a belt-in-oil design that’s engineered to be a maintenance-free item.

2017 Ford Ranger Black Edition

2017 Ford Ranger Black Edition

Europe’s best-selling pickup truck gets a special edition for the Frankfurt Motor Show

Ford is headed to the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show and is bringing an impressive lineup with it, one of which is a special edition of Europe’s best-selling pickup truck, the Ford Ranger. It may not look the part at first glance, but the Ford Ranger Black Edition is just that, thanks in part to a limited production of just 2,500 examples across the continent. Of course, it comes dressed in black, hence the name “Black Edition.”

It’s fitting that Ford is bringing a special edition Ranger with it to Frankfurt. The pickup, after all, is regarded as Europe’s best-selling pickup, a title it has earned after posting record sales this year, including 23,100 units sold in July 2017 alone. What better way to celebrate the Ranger’s status than by dressing it up, slapping on new exterior detailing, dialing up on the standard features, and then showcasing it at one of the world’s biggest auto shows. It’s a good move that adds an extra layer of intrigue into the Ranger Black Edition, even though there’s not much about the pickup that counts as an “exclusive” other than the selling point of it coming in “all black” garb. Still, it should make for an interesting vehicle in Frankfurt. And considering the Ranger’s popularity in Europe, Ford shouldn’t have any problems selling the 2,500-unit inventory of the special edition.

Ford Australia Teases The Ranger Raptor – Big time!

Ford Australia Teases The Ranger Raptor – Big time!

Official website shows the mid-sized Raptor bombing through the outback

Out of the blue dropped Ford’s confirmation of the 2019 Ranger Raptor – a highly capable off-roader based on the mid-size T6 Ranger pickup but with the soul of the widely loved F-150 Raptor. Without much hubbub, the Ranger Raptor’s webpage went live early September 7 as part of Ford Australia’s main website. Included is a short video that teases the truck’s capabilities and rugged underpinnings. Many details still remain unknown, but Ford did confirm the Ranger Raptor will come in 2018 within the Asia Pacific market, which includes Australia and New Zealand.

The video offers a clear look the Ranger Raptor’s front suspension system, especially the lower control arm. It’s a beefy slug of aluminum and looks very similar to the F-150 Raptor’s. The MacPherson struts are devoid of branding, however, though we’d bet Fox Racing is a shoe-in. Sadly, we can’t see the rear suspension. Rumors are running rampant of a multi-link system with coil springs and a Watts Link attached to a solid axle. Confirmation of the powertrain is also missing. Some say the Ranger Raptor will use the same High Output 3.5-liter EcoBoost found the in F-150 Raptor, while others say the Ranger’s 3.2-liter five-cylinder will be used. We’re leaning toward the standard 3.5-liter EcoBoost used in less radical F-150s. There it makes 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. We’re also betting strongly on the 10-speed automatic transmission being the only choice. And what would a modern Raptor be without Baja Mode and the rest of the 4WD selectable setting? Ford could officially debut the Raptor at the upcoming Frankfurt Auto Show starting September 14, so stay tuned to TopSpeed for that.

Mercedes-Benz X-Class Vs. The Competition

Mercedes-Benz X-Class Vs. The Competition

‘Ze Germans reimagine the pickup segment, but how does it stack up?

Mercedes-Benz just made quite the splash when it dropped the new X-Class. Framed as the first truly “upscale” pickup truck, the X-Class intends on redefining the midsize segment with unprecedented levels of luxury and refinement. It might seem like a strange combination to mate luxury with pickups, but as Mercedes points out, “the number of pickups for private use is increasing. They are no longer viewed purely as workhorses.” As such, the X-Class aims to broaden the pickup’s buyer appeal, seeking out folks like “land owners and farmers in Argentina, business owners and building contractors in Australia, families with an affinity for premium products in Brazil, trend-conscious individualists in South Africa and Great Britain as well as sporty adventurers in New Zealand and Germany.” Sounds like quite the collection of buyers. But here’s the thing – is the X-Class really all that revolutionary?

To find out, we placed it alongside some of its biggest competition, including the Toyota Hilux, the Volkswagen Amarok, and the Ford Ranger. And, since its possible Merc might bring the X-Class stateside eventually, we threw in the GMC Canyon Denali as well. Read on for all the specs and info you need, and let us know in the comments how you think the X-Class stacks up.

2019 Ford Ranger Raptor

2019 Ford Ranger Raptor

Ford likely developing a Raptor version of upcoming Ranger pickup

The Ford F-150 Raptor was supposed to be a specialty truck designed to last a few model years before being retired. That was in 2010. To Ford’s surprise, the desert-running truck struck a nerve and people lined up to buy them. The Raptor jumped generations with the 2015 F-150’s switch to aluminum body panels, returning to showrooms for the 2016 model year. Well, Ford decided to capitalize on the Raptor’s success and capability by extending the same hard-core off-road tech to the mid-size Ford Ranger pickup.

Debuting for the 2019 model year, the Ranger Raptor is wider, taller, and rides on Fox Racing Shocks and all-terrain tires similar to its big brother’s. Ford also decided the Ranger Raptor needed its own powerplant, electing to design and build a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel that makes a respectable 369 pound-feet of torque.

Ford’s initial debut of the 2019 Ranger Raptor happened for the Asia Pacific market that includes countries like China, Thailand, India, the Philippines, and Australia. The U.S.-spec model is expected to debut in the coming months, if not weeks.

Update 02/08/2018: Ford has debuted the 2019 Ranger Raptor for the Asian Pacific market. We’ve got all the details in the review below.

Baloney: Ford Bronco, Ranger Getting Solid Front Axle

Baloney: Ford Bronco, Ranger Getting Solid Front Axle

It’ll never happen…

Word is circulating the rumor mill that both the 2019 Ford Ranger and the 2020 Ford Bronco will have solid front and rear axles, making both the only light-duty contenders outside the Jeep Wrangler to use such a suspension setup. The news comes from Automotive News, which reported famed axle maker Dana confirmed both Ford products will use its “AdvanTEK gear technology.” AN then made the assumption this means solid axles. There’s only on problem…

It’s not true.

What is true is Dana has indeed been selected as Ford’s axle provider for the Ranger and Bronco. What isn’t true is the solid, beam-style design. Dana’s AdvanTEK gear technology is indeed used in solid axles, but is also used in independent suspension systems, as well. See, AdvanTEK is a gear technology, not a particular style of axle. Dana markets the AdvanTEK brand as “delivering more miles per gallon, enhanced vehicle performance, and maximum durability for the complete spectrum of light vehicles.”

Further more, solid axles are good at two things: off-roading and being extremely strong. Conversely, solid axles are not so great at on-road driving. Ever heard of the Jeep “death wobble?” While the Bronco and Ranger would benefit tremendously off-road with a solid front axle, the on-road trade-off is far too great for Ford to okay the idea. What’s more, Ford has confirmed the U.S.-spec ranger will be based off the T6 global Ranger. That pickup uses an independent front suspension design. And since the Bronco will be based off the U.S.-spec Ranger, it too will have an independent front suspension.

Bronco & Ranger Confirmed! Ford to Revive Icons in U.S.

Bronco & Ranger Confirmed! Ford to Revive Icons in U.S.

Both to be built in Michigan & hit showrooms by the decade’s end

Ford has officially announced the Ranger pickup and Bronco SUV will indeed return to the U.S. after an extended absence. The confirmation was all but expected as word of the vehicles’ return has long been rumored. Ford has not revealed any major vehicle-specific details, but the production timeline was announced.

Ford says the Ranger will fall into the mid-size pickup category and be “incredibly capable yet fun to drive.” It will hit showrooms for the 2019 model year, meaning Ford will debut the pickup in the coming year. Joe Hinrich, Ford’s president of The Americas, said this about the Ranger. “[The] Ranger is for truck buyers who want an affordable, functional, rugged, and maneuverable pickup that’s Built Ford Tough.”

As for the Bronco, Hinrich says, “[the] Bronco will be a no-compromise midsize 4x4 utility for thrill seekers who want to venture way beyond the city.” It will arrive in showrooms for the 2020 model year and will be classified a mid-size SUV.

Though no other information was given, it’s easy to speculate about Ranger and Bronco. Both vehicles will be built at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, Michigan. This means they will likely share a good majority of parts, including their platform, engines, transmission, and interior.

Since Ford is sure to use a body-on-frame design for the Ranger, it would make sense for the Bronco to ride on the same underpinnings. Combine that with Hinrich’s words about a no-compromise mid-size 4WD utility for thrill seekers, and the suspicion of a body-on-frame SUV is undeniable. Perhaps Ford has the Jeep Wrangler in its sights.

Possible powertrains include the F-150’s new 3.3-liter V-6, the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6, and hopefully, the new 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel. Perhaps Ford will also include the new 10-speed automatic transmission, as well.

Ford Bronco and Ranger Will be Built in Michigan; Confirmation Thanks to... Donald Trump?

Ford Bronco and Ranger Will be Built in Michigan; Confirmation Thanks to... Donald Trump?

In a move to disprove Trump, UAW confirms Bronco and Ranger for U.S. market!

Love or loath him, Donald Trump has seemingly squeezed great news out of Ford Motor Company. Trump’s harsh and frequent remarks on Ford’s relocation of small-car production from Michigan to Mexico has pushed the automaker to divulge secret company plans on reviving the Bronco SUV and Ranger midsize pickup for the North American market.

Yep, Ford is bringing back the Bronco and Ranger. Trump aside, that’s news we can all get behind. The news comes from the chairman of the UAW local 900, Bill Johnson, in speaking with the Detroit Free Press.

Johnson is quoted as saying, “We hate to see the products go to Mexico, but with the Ranger and the Bronco coming to Michigan Assembly that absolutely secured the future for our people a lot more than the Focus does.”

Wow, clear as day, Johnson confirms Ford is indeed reviving the Bronco and Ranger. His further comments on securing the future for UAW workers also makes perfect sense. The Focus, a low-profit margin vehicle, is moving to Mexico to make room for high-profit margin SUVs and trucks. The Ranger will complete Ford’s F-Series lineup, spanning from the midsize segment up to the Class 7 medium duty commercial segment. The Bronco, on the other hand, will be one of four new SUVs Ford is debuting. These four SUVs likely include at least one model that’s no destined for North American sales, but rather will fall under Ford’s global arm.

Regardless, Ford is indeed bringing back two iconic nameplates. It remains to be seen what design and capability direction Ford will take the Bronco, but we highly suspect the Ranger will be a U.S.-spec version of the global Ranger already on sale around the world.

We expect Ford to make an official announcement or (even better) a debut of either product in the coming months. Auto show season is upon us, and timing is running out before the end of the decade. Will Ford debut the Bronco and/or Ranger this year? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

“Dirt Every Day” Builds the Most Well-Rounded Vehicle Ever

“Dirt Every Day” Builds the Most Well-Rounded Vehicle Ever

It’s called the PreRangerRoverLandeRunner and it’s awesome!

Fred Williams and his buds at Dirt Every Day are some of the craziest yet most creative at the Motor Trend headquarters. The YouTube show usually consists of some nutty build job or how to conquer off-road hardships on the cheap. Well, the latest episode has it all. In fact, everything that could possibly be included in an off-road vehicle is somehow hog-pogged together on the “PreRangerRoverLandeRunner.” Yep, it’s a thing.

Fred, with the help of Dave, build an “all-encompassing” off-roader that can pre-run, mug bog, rock crawl, and overland camp. Impossible? Nope. The guys hack together a first-generation Ford Ranger and a thoroughly trashed first-generation Range Rover in a beastly concoction of welded angle iron, rust, and jerry-rigged electronics and fuel systems. What’s more, they somehow convinced a overlanding tent manufacturer to send them a roof-mounted tent for review, along with Maxxis giving them four new Bighorn mud tires.

I won’t give away too much of the driving portion of the video, but needless to say, this two-headed monstrosity goes like none other and looks rather dangerous. Let’s just say I wouldn’t want to be riding backwards down a dirt road in a vehicle held together by some scrap iron and dinky welds. Thankfully both Fred and Dave make it out alive, though the same might not be true for the PreRangerRoverLandeRunner. But you’ll have to watch the video to see what happens.

Ford Invests Into Future Bronco and Ranger

Ford Invests Into Future Bronco and Ranger

The United Automobile Workers and Ford Motor Company have reached a future strategy agreement that include $10,000 signing bonuses for UAW members, the creation, or at least retention, of 8,500 jobs, and a $9 billion investment in new U.S. products, two of which include the Ranger midsize pickup and Bronco SUV.

Now UAW members must vote on the tentative plan.

This is the latest and most concrete news in the rumor mill surrounding the Ranger and Bronco – two vehicles that have been the topic of heavy speculation for more than a year.

The UAW and Ford have been in negotiation over what vehicles will replace the Focus and C-Max cars at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant once production of the two cars are moved to Mexico.

According to the Detroit Free Press’ unnamed source, production of the Focus and C-Max will move to Mexico in 2018 and Ranger production will start shortly after that, with the Bronco following sometime before 2020.

At this point, there are still no details on the Ranger and Bronco. Many suspect Ford will adapt the U.S.-spec Ranger from its global Ranger platform, with updated in the powertrain, safety, and body and interior designs. The Bronco is speculated to be a rebadged version of Ford’s Everest SUV, itself an SUV version of the Ranger pickup.

However, such an SUV could clutter Ford’s SUV lineup and provide unwanted competition to the Explorer. Perhaps Ford will stick with the Bronco’s roots and build a more rough-and-tumble SUV with Jeep Wrangler-like characteristics.

Regardless of which way Ford goes on the Bronco, it seems the two iconic Blue-Oval nameplates are ripe for resurrection.

Ford Invests Into Future Bronco and Ranger

Ford Invests Into Future Bronco and Ranger

The United Automobile Workers and Ford Motor Company have reached a future strategy agreement that include $10,000 signing bonuses for UAW members, the creation, or at least retention, of 8,500 jobs, and a $9 billion investment in new U.S. products, two of which include the Ranger midsize pickup and Bronco SUV.

Now UAW members must vote on the tentative plan.

This is the latest and most concrete news in the rumor mill surrounding the Ranger and Bronco – two vehicles that have been the topic of heavy speculation for more than a year.

The UAW and Ford have been in negotiation over what vehicles will replace the Focus and C-Max cars at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant once production of the two cars are moved to Mexico.

According to the Detroit Free Press’ unnamed source, production of the Focus and C-Max will move to Mexico in 2018 and Ranger production will start shortly after that, with the Bronco following sometime before 2020.

At this point, there are still no details on the Ranger and Bronco. Many suspect Ford will adapt the U.S.-spec Ranger from its global Ranger platform, with updated in the powertrain, safety, and body and interior designs. The Bronco is speculated to be a rebadged version of Ford’s Everest SUV, itself an SUV version of the Ranger pickup.

However, such an SUV could clutter Ford’s SUV lineup and provide unwanted competition to the Explorer. Perhaps Ford will stick with the Bronco’s roots and build a more rough-and-tumble SUV with Jeep Wrangler-like characteristics.

Ford May Bring Bronco & Ranger Back in The U.S.

Ford May Bring Bronco & Ranger Back in The U.S.

It appears Ford’s watchful eye on the revival of the midsize truck market has determined there is room for the Ranger after all. Yep, after four years without a U.S.-spec Ranger, the Blue Oval is currently (and more openly) discussing the possibility of bringing back the compact truck. What’s more, the Bronco SUV is being mentioned as well.

Ford Trademarks Ranger Raptor And FX4 Nomenclatures

Ford Trademarks Ranger Raptor And FX4 Nomenclatures

It looks as if Ford might be expanding the Raptor moniker outside the F-150 lineup. According to Australia’s CarAdvice, Ford has trademarked the “Ranger Raptor” name in preparation for its all-out off-roader.

Though Ford has nothing to say about the matter besides pointing back to its recently released 2016 Ford Ranger Wildtrak as the current halo model, the Australians have spotted modified Ranger pickups sporting widened fenders, beefy tires, and stout suspension setups running around the outback. This leads us to believe Ford is actually considering expanding the Raptor nomenclature to the global Ranger.

What’s more, the Ranger may also get its own FX4 package. Trademarked along side the Ranger Raptor is the Ranger FX4. There are two possibilities here: Ford will debut two separate Ranger trucks with different levels of off-road worthiness, or Ford simply trademarked both names as insurance while preparing a single Ranger for production. I’m hoping for the first.

Folks in Australia are serious about their 4WDs and Ford would be wise to offer the up-fitted trucks to such a hungry customer base. Sadly there’s no word on whether Ford would work any horsepower magic on the Ranger’s available powertrains. The truck currently offers three engine options, with the base 2.2-liter turbodiesel available in two output ratings. The most likely candidate for the Raptor and/or FX4 would be the 3.2-liter TDCi turbodiesel. The inline five-cylinder puts out 197 horsepower and 347 pound-feet of torque. Hopefully Ford would see fit to increase the 3.2-liter’s specs to make it more competitive in the dirt.

While this is great speculation for our friends in Australia, U.S. truck buyers are very likely to be left in the cold. Ford says it’s sticking to its two-truck approach with its full sized F-150 and its heavy duty Super Duty F-250, F-350, and F-450. However, you’d be crazy to say Ford isn’t keeping a close eye on the U.S. mid-size truck market these days. GM has had plenty of success with its Colorado and Canyon twins, while Toyota continues to rake in profits with its popular Tacoma.

2016 Ford Ranger Wildtrak

2016 Ford Ranger Wildtrak

Ford has just introduced the Wildtrak trim level on its all-new global 2015 Ford Ranger pickup truck. The Wildtrak sits atop all other trim levels in the Ranger lineup and offers a wide array of standard features, such as electronic driver’s aids, along with a unique look inside and out.

Ford says the Wildtrak is the truck for those wanting “...genuine 4WD capability with stand-out styling and premium features.” That’s certainly the case when scanning the truck’s features list. The truck boasts a slew of electronic driver assist features like Lane Keeping Alert and Lane Keeping Aid; Adaptive Cruise Control; Forward Alert; and Driver Impairment Monitor.

Such features make the Wildtrak sound like a high-end luxury sedan, but the Ranger still offers some impressive truck-like stats. Like the standard Ranger, it can ford 31.5 inches of water, clear obstacles with its nine inches of ground clearance, and tow an impressive 7,716 pounds from its hitch.

Sadly for us in the U.S., the Ranger remains out of reach. Its high levels of luxury and capabilities make it too competitive against the F-150. Adding the truck to the U.S. lineup would simply cost too much money and would rob sales of the F-Series – or so Ford has said.

For those markets around the world that get the Ranger, including Australia, Asia, Europe, South America, and Africa, the Wildtrak bridges the gap between utilitarian trucks and high-end crossovers.

2015 Ford Ranger

Ford has officially announced its latest version of the global Ranger at the 2015 Bangkok Motor Show, the midsize pickup that roams nearly every continent except North America. The truck is heavily revised for 2015, with a new exterior look and interior design leading the headlines.

The truck’s updates are partly in response to increases sales. 2014 saw an impressive 40 percent increase over 2013 sales with its market share growing some 4.5 percent to capture an overall 21 percent stronghold.

Though the truck market outside the U.S. is very different, global truck buyers are looking for the same upgraded refinements – at least judging by the changes found on the new Ranger. It includes more digital displays, the latest version of SYNC, and a cabin with improved NVH levels.

Returning for 2015 is a competent off-roader. An electronic, part-time 4WD system is assisted by an electronic locking rear differential and tidy exterior dimensions that afford generous ground clearances.

New are a slew of electronic safety systems designed to keep the driver out of trouble and others that keep occupants safe if trouble does happen.

Top 10 Cars We Can't Have in the U.S.

Top 10 Cars We Can’t Have in the U.S.

The U.S. auto industry have given us some of the most incredible automobiles over the last 100 hundred years. Starting with the Ford Model T, the first vehicle mass-produced on moving assembly lines, and ending with the aluminum-bodied, 2015 Ford F-150 pickup truck, America has made a name for itself as one of the world’s biggest automobile manufacturers. Before the Great Depression, the U.S. produced over 90 percent of the vehicles sold globally, and after World War II it was responsible for 75 percent of the world’s production. That’s no longer the case in 2014, when China manufactures nearly 20 million vehicle a year, more than both the U.S. and Japan.

Sure, these numbers don’t mean U.S. manufacturers have lost their touch. Just look at the new Mustang and Corvette Z06, and you’ll notice the brilliant engineering and the passion are still there. However, it’s common knowledge that global production works on different standards which restrict the availability of certain models in certain markets. It works both ways. Europe, for instance, can’t have many of the vehicles sold in the U.S., while Americans can’t buy cars made by a variety of European brands. Ironically, North American manufacturers have launched a bevy of nameplates that can’t be had in the U.S. And while most of them wouldn’t stir any interest on these shores, some vehicles have caused great frustration to the American enthusiast.

I’m going to talk about the latter. The cool cars we can’t buy and drive over various production or import issues, or even the manufacturer’s lack of interest in the U.S. market. Take a look at my choices below and tell me what you guys think. I narrowed the list down to 10 vehicles, so feel free to let me know which ones you think I should have included in the comments box.

2014 Ford Ranger Dakar Rally

2014 Ford Ranger Dakar Rally

Did you know that over 1 billion people tune in to watch the Dakar Rally?

That’s a staggering number for a race that used to run from Paris to Dakar until 2008 and then moved to South America from 2009 until the present time. Next year, the Dakar Rally returns to the spotlight, running from Rosario, Argentina all the way to Valparaiso, Chile.

Ford has always been one of the brands that regularly participates in the rally and for the 2014 installment, the automaker is bringing a pair of Ford Rangers for the 5,281-mile race to Chile.

Mind you, these aren’t your typical T6 Ranger 4×4 Double Cabs that will brave the elements in Argentina, Bolivia, and Chile. Built and prepared by Neil Woolridge Motorsport, the Ranger Dakar Rally has been carefully tinkered with to be able to withstand grueling terrain. Both pickups were fitted with 5.0-liter V-8 engines, each producing an impressive 349 horsepower at 4,500 rpm and 413 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm. These powerful engines mate to a Sadev six-speed sequential transmission that links to a four-wheel-drive setup.

More than just its performance capabilities, the Ranger Dakar Rally pickup racers were also given the full race-spec treatment, complete with modified front and rear suspension, anti-roll bars on both sides of the pickup, and a set of 16-inch Evocorse wheels wrapped in race-spec Michelin tires.

With a grueling race like Dakar, fuel efficiency is very important in ensuring that the racers last the whole 13-day run. Fortunately, these Rangers are more than capable of that task, thanks to a fuel consumption rating that runs between 28 liters/100 km (8.4 mpg) and 90 liters/100 km (2.6 mpg), when driving in sandy racing conditions.

The race begins on January 5, 2014 and runs until the 18th of the same month. It’s still a little ways down the road, but it’s exciting knowing that participating teams are already gearing up for the event in their own way.

Ford recalls over 26,000 vehicles over faulty brake lights

Ford recalls over 26,000 vehicles over faulty brake lights

Ford has announced that they will be looking to recall over 26,715 models due to faulty components in the brake and tail lights. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), "The multi-function switch was shipped with a sub-component (slider) that may experience deformation. A multi-function switch with a deformed slider may malfunction causing the turn signal, tail lights, hazard warning signal flashers and/or brake lights not to activate."

This is not the first time Ford pickups have undergone a serious recall. In 2010, 23,688 4-cylinder models were recalled due to a potential fire hazard. That recall centered on potential chafing of fuel lines. The Ranger was also subject to a recall in 2010 when over 2,300 manual transmission vehicles were recalled due to a faulty parking brake hydraulic actuator causing "..unintended movement which may cause a crash."

Past history aside, Ford’s newest recall is affecting a variety of vehicle including the 2002-2005 Excursion, the 2002-2007 F-250-F-550, and the 2011 Ford Ranger.

If you just so happen to own one of the vehicles on the list, head on over to your local Ford dealer where the part will be replaced with a more robust unit. The recall is expected to begin on August 15th, 2011.

2011 Ford Ranger

2011 Ford Ranger

With the economy coming out of the crapper, Ford dug down deep to produce a pick-up truck that could do battle with the negativity being thrown at it. That pick-up is the new generation Ford Ranger that is said to be more tough and more capable that ever before. It will include three body styles: 4x2 and 4x4 configurations, high- and low-ride models, and a broad series array. It will be sold in 180 markets on five continents.

This new model features a longer wheelbase and wider track than the previous models, and carries a short overhang with a tri-plane plan view. There are new larger headlamps, bigger mirrors, stamped-in wheel lips, a slight rear spoiler, and increased side mirrors.

The tough look of the exterior is carried in to the interior with borrowed elements from ergonomically-designed power tools like DEWALT 1. On the opposite side of the spectrum, the Ranger is said to offer comfort levels found in passenger cars.with its contemporary look and feel. The pick-up’s interior design is easily adapted to any of the interior trims available with the cluster, heating and air conditioning controls, sound system, console, and door panels switching to match the trim levels.

Ford releases teaser of 2012 Ranger; says it's not coming to the US

Ford releases teaser of 2012 Ranger; says it’s not coming to the US

Does this look a little too familiar to any of you? Ford has come out with a new teaser image of a soon-to-be-unveiled vehicle. Where have we seen that before?

Oh, wait. They did that so many times with the 2011 Ford Explorer it eventually became a little too tiring. Now, the Blue Oval is back to their old tricks after releasing a teaser photo of the 2012 Ford Ranger.

From what we know, the new Ranger appears to be a little bigger than its predecessor and could potentially be configured as a four-door crew cab. True to form, Ford didn’t give away a whole lot about the new pick-up, although they did say that the new pick-up will be more powerful than previous models while also boasting of having excellent fuel economy. We also need to pass along some distressing news to people who are big fans of the Ranger. The next-generation pick-up won’t be making it’s way to the US because, according to Ford, the new Ranger is too close in size with the Ford F-150 and Americans would rather spend their hard-earned money for a larger pick-up at a price tag that isn’t too far from the Ranger.

But as for the rest of the world? Rejoice! The Ranger is still coming in your shores.

We can’t expect anything more than what Ford has given, but as soon as new developments about the new Ford Ranger come out, we’ll be sure to pass them along.

2009 Ford Ranger (European Version) Facelift

2009 Ford Ranger (European Version) Facelift

Ford will unveil at the Geneva Motor Show the facelift version of its Ranger pick-up. This helps the design come in line with the Kuga SUV. NOTE: Ford makes two trucks called Ranger one for North America and one for Europe; this is the latter.

The new Ranger comes with a large horizontal three-bar grille, two black vertical nostrils either side of the grille plus the extended opening below the bumperline and large headlamps that wrap around each front corner create an instantly recognizable design statement. The lower bumper fascia also includes integrated foglamps.

Under the hood Ford placed two engines: either 2.5-litre or 3.0-litre. The 2,5 liters one delivers 140 hp and has CO2 emission figures of 227 g/km and 244 g/km respectively in 4x2 and 4x4 configurations and regular cab bodystyle. The 3.0 liters one delivers 154 hp.

Ford sells to similar sized-trucks called "Ranger" to different parts of the world. Considering that the Ranger in North America has not had a makeover in a decade, let’s hope this one is for us.

The Ranger Max Concept was developed by Ford in cooperation to with Ford’s Australia-based Asia Pacific and Africa design team, led by Paul Gibson.

The concept features a bright orange high-energy color, exclusive Ranger Max sportsbar, a huge three-bar chrome grille, a customized hard tonneau cover at the rear of the vehicle and of course 18" alloy wheels.
