The European model is built on a completely different platform from the one sold in South America, which would explain the different displacements.
Rangers sold in North America, Central America, and most of South America share a common platform developed by Ford. Of course there are a lot of differences between the trucks, but the frame and most other components are shared.
Rangers sold in Asia, Europe, Austrailia, etc... share a platform designed in the mid '90s as a joint venture project between Ford and Mazda. They are often called "Thai Rangers," since the primary plant that produces them is in Thailand and that is where most of them are sold.
