  1. 2022-2023 Ranger Raptor World Premiere! Wallpapers, Video & Specs

    Yes the folding seats was a huge design flaw on the first gen. That really needed fixing. This looks very promising but unfortunately, will be priced too high for me. I can see this going North of 60K USD and probably getting 5K-10K over MSRP (Addendum). Even new Colorado ZR 2's are over 50K...
  2. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    For me, I know what Australia gets will be vastly superior to the NA version. After all, this is their baby. They designed it. We already know they will offer a MT option. 3 diesel options. And most likely a better suspension that does not wobble all over the place. After the disaster of...
  3. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    Not interested in the 2.3 because its only DI. The 2.7 has dual injectors. Plus IMO, will have more power/torque and won't have to be in boost near as much. Starting to lean towards the 2.7 F-150 for other reasons as well. But if they the 2.7 into the Ranger it might sweeten the deal. But I...
  4. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    Well the only example we had was the baby duramax on the Colorado which has ended production. IMO, the only good Colorado ever made because it also came with the bullet proof GM 6 speed. Its hard to say if it had poor sales because it was always very limited production in the states. When I...
  5. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    Makes sense since they modifiied the frame to except the V6 3 liter diesel overseas. I know some are worried they won't offer the 2.7 in the lower trims but since GM will most likely use their 2.7 as their base and only engine offer on the next Colorado that would put Ford out to pasture for...
  6. 2.7L engine on 6th gen 2023 Ranger?

    That was a really interesting write up. A little while back I went to Rich Ford here in Albuquerque and they only had one XLT ranger that had just come in. I was not interested in that and the sales guys said I can order one and it will arrive in a month (which I knew is complete crap). But...
  7. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    With my driving habits it would be optimal for build up. I work 4 miles away. Lots of short runs. I did not know the 2.7 had dual injection. Another reason Ford needs to put that in the Ranger.
  8. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    On Fords build site I tricked out a XLT 4X4 with 10 grand worth of options for just over 50K. And unlike the Ranger you can put the B&O sound system on the XLT. With the Ranger you can only add that to the top lariat trim. I know people are paying 50K for the new frontier P4X with addendums...
  9. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    You got me thinking. One can buy a F150 STX 4X4 Supercab with the 2.7 for around 43K. The back seat is still about as roomy as a ranger and you got a 6.5 foot box. Never really considered a full size but it always seems the mid sizers are intentionally compromised.
  10. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    I don't know but in a crash I'm thinking something electronic that has no power is a very bad idea.
  11. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    Ironically, the 2.7 in the ranger would probably get better MPG's as well. But i'm more then a bit fearful of smaller boosted petrol motors. Some talk about oil dilution on the 2.3 is is worrisome (I do allot of small commutes where the motor does not heat up to operating temps). I test drove...
  12. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    Looks like they relocated from the top/front of the door to lower middle. I think its around that silver trim piece in that location. No way they could use an electronic handle. Feds would never allow that if you know what I mean.
  13. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    The sports bar is also very popular in the EU as well. I think most of the global markets that have the Ranger offer it. In that, the US is pretty much the exception. The one thing that the global product gets right over the US version is the availability of diesels. I still feel that is a...
  14. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    I doubt it will affect Fuel economy much as you never really go faster them 60 kph in Fiji. As for approach angle I never hit it in the 3 plus years I drove it over there. Plenty of bad roads etc.. but never really took it off road. Just heavily rutted dirt roads, mud and rain. Allot of...
  15. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    Don't get me wrong. I'd like to see a LWB Ranger as well. I'm just not very optimistic about that happening. As far as waiting for the new Ranger one has to remember NA had to wait 7 years for the new ranger to come. What gets me is the rest of the world gets much better engine options with...
  16. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    Mostly based on the fact this next generation is basically using the existing T6 frame with some modifications and that it is a global platform. To offer an extra foot of frame will require significant changes to say the least. When you look at Toy/Nissan their LWB trucks are only offered in...
  17. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    I'm pretty sure that GM will also come with a LWB crew cab configuration. Whereas the Ranger will likely not. I can only hope. That could end up being the deal killer for allot of people that want a 6 foot box with a decent back seat. The other concern I have is the XL/XLT only offering the...
  18. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    Are you saying the 2.3 is prone for oil dilution? If so, I'd probably not interested because if you can't baby that motor and keep it in boost all the time the MPG's will be bad.
  19. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    You might as well start looking elsewhere. This is a global product so what you see here is what we will get later in the states. Only changes will be minor underpinnings and bumpers. Also engine options will be different and definitely no diesel options for NA. But the frame looks to be a...
  20. All-New 2023 Ford Ranger (XL, XLS, XLT, Sport, Wildtrak) Global Reveal!

    Its a lot better then what they did on the explorer. That looks like a glued on tablet. Just horrible.
