Ford has finally debuted its global truck, the all-new 2011 Ford Ranger. With its corporate three-bar nose and heavily arched fender openings, the Ranger borrows plenty of cues from the likes of the Edge. The 2011 Ranger will debut in 180 markets with three cab choices, two-wheel and four-wheel drive options and two ride heights. Given that we already have the F150, North Americans will not get Ford’s compact truck.
The 2011 Ford Ranger will be offered with three engine options, the most powerful of which is a 3.5-liter Duratorq turbocharged five-cylinder diesel that produces 200 horsepower and 346 lb-ft of torque. Of the three engines, only one will be a gasoline unit. All engines can be mated to either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. This combination is powerful enough to provide the Ranger with a payload capacity of around 3,300 pounds.
