Best in its class! Of course nobody makes a truely "small" pickup anymore so theres not much competition either. I like the 4 doors. Makes the back so much more useful.

It's nice to not have to reach around the seats etc to get into the back for your stuff. I'm not a fan of four regular sized doors on a truck but the suicide doors are awesome.

Mines been great, and the extra doors really do make it easy to get stuff in and out of the back without having to move the seats.

or put nissan frontier emblems on it. boarder control would never know!

i don't see why you couldn't import one, it would just be super expensive.

not worth it imo, i would rather get the diesel engine and ecu out of one and have it shipped over.

Its great having 4 doors, I can load unload my gear quick and easy. Its easier to clean out too! If you're loading up something that a bit big or awkward sized and don't wanna put it in the bed its great for that too. I bought a new computer chair recently. It was in a big ole box. I didn't wanna put it in the bed cause I had a few more stops to make, so I opened both passenger doors, folded the seat down and voila ~ it went in real easy~came out real easy too.

i believe the brazillian ranger is made in detroit. or somewhere in the US. I could be wrong though. the brazillian ranger is the best looking IMO

The back seat looks surprisingly roomy. I figured there would be no leg room in the back.

stick that cab on a normal extended cab ranger frame and insure it as an extended cab. no one will notice the difference.

inspection should not be much different.
