Ford Ranger Euro

By Nauman Farooq

 

It has been one of the longest running, single generation vehicles in the North American market.

 

The current Ford Ranger pick-up truck that is still being sold in North American showrooms, has been with us since 1993. In the last 16 years, Ford of America has done little to change the vehicle, limiting it to just minor cosmetic and mechanical changes.

Looks like times are about to change, as the Ford Ranger Euro made its appearance at the Geneva Motor Show.

 

This handsome looking truck has four full-sized doors, and has a 72-inch bed, so while it might not be ideal for a construction site, it sure will be ideal to carry your dirt-bikes, quad-bikes and jet ski’s.

 

The Ranger Euro gets a choice of two common-rail diesel engines, a 2.5-liter (143 hp) or 3.0-liter (156 hp) Duratorq V6.

 

Both engines can be had with either a five-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission. You can also pick from a 4×2 to a 4×4 drivetrain.

 

The Ranger Euro goes on sale in Europe this month. Ford of America is planning to launch a new version of the Ranger for the home market in 2011.
