Australian Ranger

Thought this was kind of cool. Someone posted it over on RPS.

http://www.ford.com.au/servlet/Conte...idth&c=DFYPage

And in case your wondering. The 3.0 Turbo Diesel in americanized units is:

380 Nm = 281.2 Ft Lbs of Torque
115 kW = 154.1 HP

That and in the interior gauges look pretty sweet. Wonder if you could import them?

the dash looks kind of like the 150ish design and i REALLY don't like the new 150/explorer/expedition/etc dash (round chrome vents, etc).

I'd sport one as a DD (4x4 still, but 4 door and with the twin shifters) and keep my 04 for a project truck.

Because I don't think they look the same.




Only the fender flares look similar..other than that the Ranger has it's own unique characteristics.
