That thing is so ugly. I would never even think about buying one. If thats the future of the ranger, I'll be damned if I am ever going to buy one.

i think its ugly too, but i bet it will resemble something of the f150/superduty styling, just smaller. (the US version)

Well I'm going against the crowd and saying that it does not look half bad. After all, at least it is not looking like a cousin to the honda style pick up that we have seen from other "Future" pics

WOW, what were they thinking when they built that? The guy who designed that should be straight up fired.

Any one have any ideas as to engine/tranny possibilities? Diesel perhaps? Exterior leaves a little to be desired.

It's called a test mule for a reason. It probably only has the powertrain from the new ranger, or the suspension or something.

suspension and drivetrain are the same thing between the trucks.. thats probably what the mazda will look like, they've always looked worse than the rangers.

from what I gather they just slapped a body on top of a new chassis design, looks like torsion bars but I don't see the actually rods near the middle of the cab...

its probably running a test engine too
