yup thats it. Its not the right body for it though, although im sure itll be about the same size.

As far as the small bed.... screw the long bed/crew cab option. If you want that, buy a fullsize. If you want a compact truck with a crew cab, get a short bed. There has to be some sacrifice on both ends. Otherwise, the truck gets stupid big like the new Tacoma. I saw a long bed crew cab one next to an old T100 yesterday, its almost the same size! stupid to have a that much of a product overlap like that between the Tacoma and Tundra.

Did we not learn from the fail that was the Dodge Dakota? The overlap with the Ram killed it. Why buy a 'small' truck that costs as much, usues as much gas, is getting close to the same size, and has LESS capability at the end of the day? Hell, i really dont like how big the T6 is next to the current truck, but well, i can live with it. Ford, dont jack it up by making it big and bigger like the rest of the competition.

From what I have heard (I can't find the link right now) it is slightly bigger than the current Ranger, but still small enough to be a "compact truck"

Don't forget these mules aren't using production sheet metal, so it won't look as bad when it is finally launched.

Deport that ugly T6 to mexico and give the mexican ranger a green card
Then order the border patrol to shoot on site if they see the T6 trying to hop the border

Hola Robert, este de "lavado de cara" que recibió la Ford Ranger Argentina es de transición.

Ford Argentina tubo que hacer este trabajo de cambiarle la cara a la Ranger por que acá la competencia es muy fuerte entre pick-ups, y más que unos meses sale a la venta la nueva pick-up fabricada por primera vez de Wolksvagen que se va a llamar Amarok.

Los ingenieros de Ford Argentina ya están trabajando con otros ingenieros de otras plantas de Ford para la produción de la nueva Ford Ranger(T6) que va a salir en el 2011 ó 2012 que va a hacer un modelos para todo el mundo.
Como hizo Toyota con la Hilux, de esta forma se baja los costos de produccíon.

Slds.

PD: Hace bastante que no te vemos por el CR.

Looks like the 09 F150 to me, just smaller, and a few minor differences....

I pretty much like all Rangers, past and speculated future versions - even the T6 looks 10x better than the Colorado, IMO. Hope to keep my '08 twenty years though, so I'm not really too worried about what the future Rangers look like.

You should be worried... because if the current Ranger is any gauge, in 18 years, the 2028 Ranger may not be all that different from the 2012.

Really, with a slightly updated exterior, and an interior that came around 15 years ago, oh... and thankfully some engine updates, the truth of the matter is that the 2010 and the 1994 Rangers really aren't all that different.

Not to say that they're a bad truck, because they're not. But, the only reasons that they have continued to be the least bit competitive are that Toyota and Nissan all but ignore the small pickup market now, and Rangers are still dirt cheap.
