Simply stunning Designs!!They look like baby F150's and are true to Ford's truck look, without looking old..
They are simple understated and elegant. Like true work trucks, not the macho bloated look of the Tacoma or Titan.. to name a few. Not that the imports are bad, they just do not look like something you want to drive to a construction site. Well done Ford Rules

Would you please throw in some vents like the 250

Great looking and to me these pics look better than the trucks the competition offers. Would the reg cab have an 8 ft box or something smaller for work duty? When you said it looks like Ford will just dump it, do you mean just drop out of the segement completely or make a new small truck with a new name?

The regular cab comes in 6.5 or an 7.5 Ft box.

The Super car is 6Ft or 7"

And the Super crew comes in 5.5 and 6.5

Very good looking trucks, FR.
Tho I still kinda hope they use the Bronco concept front on one (http://home.surfree.com/~pauld/BroncoRanger.jpg).
Anyone think if/when they finally do something about the Ranger, they may make sml AND med in addition to the large F150&up?
I'm not a truck guy but just from reading forums, it seems there's demand for both.

You should have changed the rims, they scream 'I AM AN EXPLORER!!!!'.

The rims look good, but if one thing were to change, it would be the lower part of the front bumper. Otherwise, excellent work. Can we see on with a 3 bar grille on it?

They look a little like the Explorer. Do you have information if the new Ranger will be e85 compatible?
Do you have interior pictures of the new Ranger?
Also, has the MSRP pricing been set for these yet?

Those are just photochops by the talented FordRules, showing his idea of what a new Ranger should be. No such car exists or will be realeased anytime soon.

Interesting, they seemed so real, and they aren't? I thought it was real as this is under the "Breaking News" heading. My apologies.

Have you seen the Ranger Ford sell's overseas? I wonder why they do not bring it to the states

new Ranger will be built off of a downsized version of the T1 frame (F150), since Explorer is going unitbody.

Ford is also working on a new "lifestyle" vehicles - similar to the Ridgeline - based on the new Explorer - this truck might be named F100.

The Explorer and the new "truck" will be unitbody, definitely AWD but also possibly RWD. The engines will likely be longitudinaly mounted. This would be a new version of the D3.

There is a chance this changes with Ford NA talking with Ford AU about federalizing the Orion Platform by 2012, but at this point D3 is to do the trick - job1 in 2009-2010. Also the AU developped T6 truck platform is to replace both the new global (thai) tanger and the new US ranger.

My understanding (fwiw) is that there is a tarif on foreign-made trucks that would effectively wipe-out any profit in importing them if they were competitively priced.
(also read this is up for revision/renewal in the near future)

Also there may be UAW agreements limiting the number of vehicles imported by the big 2 (F & GM).
(remember reading that GM pays some sort of 'fee' for every Aveo they import)

(disclaimer: Not saying any of the above is correct - I'm no expert or even a truck fan. The above is just my 'background thought-lets' absorbed from forums)

I've seen the Rangers sold overseas, at least in the Middle East. There wasn't that much to see, really. This design concept is a very good one, one that will work harmoniously with Ford's other truck offerings.

Photoshop.....and Explorer Sport Track-based
Good idea, but the Sport Track is done already

Ford Truck rims (http://www.autopartsdeal.com/ford_truck/wheels.html) are very distinct to all of its vehicles, the style is very synonymous to the brand and stands out really well on the truck

i would have to agree. stunning. i like the way how this looks classic, elegant, timeless, without sacrificing that 'macho' factor. but then again ranger parts (http://www.carpartswholesale.com/cpw/ford~ranger~parts.html) have always been impressive. *applause*
