What the heck is with that 1980's roll bar in the bed?

I actually really thought that looked a bit like a Ridgeline. I saw the R on the back and at first thought it was but then saw the Ford symbol and could tell it said Ranger. I guess they will be okay for the weekender. To be honest, I haven't looked into them at all. I just assume they will be overpriced like the F150 was when i was looking for my truck.

If they price them right, think they'll compete with the taco? I don't know what a good price would be, but I bought my rcsb v6 ranger new in '99 for $13k. It was either that or an f150 rcsb v6 for the same price. After test driving both, the little ranger won....was a little peppier

Might be some test vehicles. You should send those photos to pickuptrucks.com with your location.

That is big news to the Ford guys seeing the Global Ranger in the states.

Yeah, wtf? They just shut down the ranger plant in St. Paul here last year , bunch of jobs cut, was a huge loss to the area.

Wonder where they are being built now? Explorer chassis?

I don't think they build the Global Ranger in the states? I thought many of them were built in Asia and in Venezuela.

I think those might be ones from South America being brought up for testing. That makes the most sense to me.

I was on the Florida Turnpike heading south in Palm Beach county. I may forward them over to the pickuptrucks.com guys if I get bored later.

Strange........it appears Ford didn't carry any exterior design over from the 1993 model. Are you sure this is a Ranger?

One thing I noticed right away is the 6-lug wheel instead of 5 lugs.

Isn't the Explorer chassis actually a Taurus chassis now? I thought I read that somewhere.

That is the global ranger. It will not be sold in the US due to the idiots in the pollution department thinking it can't pass emissions here in the US. They are powered by a 4 cylinder turbo diesel. Totally different than the rangers that many people here in the US are familiar with. My 84 Ranger was a great truck, grandparents towed a 16' travel trailer with it for several years all over the country. The computer in it went haywire and back then didn't know of the duraspark conversion I could have done to bypass the computer or I would still have that truck. I have an 84 Bronco 2 that has the same engine but I was smart enough to bypass the junk computer in it right off the bat. The newer rangers weren't that great unless you got the manual transmission, the A4LD automatic transmissions were garbage. Grandpa's 93 went through 2 transmissions within 18,000 miles of rebuilds so that truck is no longer around. They're fun to drive but not exactly reliable in automatic form past the mid 80's when they added the overdrive to them.

Some of the mid to late 80's rangers had an STX package which gave them the roll bar with KC lights and a bit of an aggressive stance to them in the way of more aggressive tires, a slightly higher stance as well using larger tires. Not many of them are still around.
