What year is this Ranger MAX ?

What year is this one?

I was hoping it was the 2012 Diesel Version.



I like it...

LOL

I don't think we'll be seeing any new Rangers any time soon.

That is the production version of the Thailand-bound Ford Ranger Max. Although I'm not sure whether or not it will be a reality.

There won't be a diesel ranger in the US any time in the near future so don't get your hopes up.

It looks good from that angle.
Domed Hood, wide stance with flares.
Too bad we can’t get one here.

I wonder how much to import one ?

I dont see why not. You can register a Ferrari from Italy so you should be able to get a Ranger done.

Ford Ranger Max concept debuts at Thailand Motor Show (w/VIDEO) — Autoblog

You can see some more pics and a vid there.

I don't like how the back end looks on that at all.

Emissions. That would be the main factor. Then if you had the money to buy one and import it you might as well get a F150.

i was hoping to see one at the LA auto show yesterday, or maybe the new focus, but went 0-2. they did have a sweet *** raptor and an f550 fire/rescue truck like the ones la county fire will be using soon. and the taurus sho is amazing. looks mean. the ford section featured absolutely NO rangers. pretty sad. i like the ranger max, except for that weird bed cover/rail thing.

Ford is no different then the other domestic companies....................all the vehicles that we want are on the other side of the planet. It seems the only car company that is willing to give north america a small taste of something different or good is Nissan with the GTR. But if most of us could drop the coin for a GTR we wouldn't really care about a Ranger?

I guess an F150 would be cheaper.

I don’t like the side view, now that I have seen it in an earlier post.

Too bad nice front view.

I dont really care about the Diesel, I just want them to start selling Rangers that look like that... They havent changed the Ranger's cosmetic design in nearly a decade and the drivetrain has been longer than that... I really hope they dont just let the brand die...

As linked earlier, Ranger MAX was a concept car that basically unveiled the new 2010 Ranger(in all countrys but the North American countrys).

Funny, I was thinking not tall enough !

Also, the fender flares need to be replaced and the bed cover need to go.

So after reading the "styling" page of the ranger max site as posted by Jaaia I thought it was pretty ironic that the design teams were from Ford Australia, Africa, and Asia and that those teams used Black and Decker tools as inspiration for the paint work..... Irony much?
