The new Ford Ranger that you can’t have

Folks, there's an all-new 2015 Ford Ranger, and it's not headed to North America.


While the midsize truck is seeing a comeback here in the states with GM’s Canyonado twins, an all-new Toyota Tacoma, an imminent new Nissan Frontier, and a brand-new Honda Ridgeline, Ford has stayed out of the fray ever since the departure of the late, lamented Ranger.

The 2015 Ford Ranger was unveiled today at The Bangkok Auto Show to great fanfare: The new Ranger gets fully restyled inside and out, and gains a full suite of electronic driver aids like adaptive cruise, lane-keeping assistance, driver-impairment alerts, parking assistance, and pretty much the rest of the tech available to us in cars like the Escape, for example. We Recommend The SVT Raptor is the perfect Border Patrol vehicle Three engines are offered—two turbodiesels and one gas engine. The diesels are a 3.2-liter 5-cylinder producing 197 hp/347 lb-ft and a 2.2-liter four that delivers 158 hp/284 lb-ft. The gasser is a 2.2L that generates 164 hp and 166 lb-ft. Max tow capacity is a little over 7700 lbs. With 9 inches of ground clearance, the ’15 Ranger is able to traverse water up to 31 inches deep. Ford will build the new truck in Thailand, South Africa, and Argentina for distribution to the Asia Pacific, African, and Latin American markets. You still want one? Sorry. Unless you decide to relocate, you’ll just have to settle for an F-150. We hear Ford does pretty well with those…
