Nice interior. I like it.

Shoot whats so hard about switching the steering wheel over to the other side? If they just switch it over, then we can have our four door ranger sooner...

Don't they have a diesel? That'd be worth it right there.

The cabin features all-new heated seats in leather and perforated alcantara with orange tricot backing, floor mats with Wildtrak logo, new sports steering wheel, dash-mounted off-road 'information centre', premium interior and footwell lighting. New Wildtrak scuff plates complete the package.

The Ford Ranger Wildtrak is available with an exclusive range of unique two-tone colours: Chilli Orange or Passion Red combined with Titanium Grey on the lower part of the body for a truly striking appearance. Other body colours that can be combined with Titanium Grey are Steel Silver, Andaman Blue, Storm Black and Strato Blue.

Under the bonnet is a new and powerful 3.0-litre TDCi engine with 156PS and 380Nm of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is tuned for fuel economy while maintaining good overtaking ability.

Still lots of important questions remain at this point: Does it even come w/4WD? What are the available axle ratios? Bed size? Is the front suspension torsion bar or...?

You can see dual shifters so I am assuming that it comes with 4WD. It would probably have a 3.55, 3.73, and/or 4.10 axle ratios.Bed size.....5 feet or less. Suspension, who knows...

They can't really make this truck any better without increasing the price. IMO they have done all they really can with this current truck, its time for a change. Even adding a v8 to this platform would increase the price. No matter what they do, the price will have to go up.....

MSRP on a new Level II is in the high 20s low 30s anyways... but how much do people usually pay for them? 20-22k. Factory rebates are your friend.

The bed doesn't look too small from this angle:

I love the UK/AUS Ranger so much more than ours, i wish they would just bring them to the US. I would never get any Crew Cab compact pickup though, but an extended cab with useable rear seats and a 6 foot bed would be nice.

I like the interior but the exterior needs a little Americanizing, it looks foreign and I don't like that. The diesel is my favorite feature, that and 4 forward hinged doors.
