    Interesting, it looks a lot like a Nissan Titan and a Ram 1500. :fingerscrossed: for the regular cab.

    I see a grab handle on the passenger side, hope they are smart enough to put one on the drivers side too.

    More interesting shots of the Ranger Raptor:

    Rear axle looks to be coil-sprung with a watt's linkage instead of the more traditional panhard rod. Looks to be a diesel, too, with the DEF tank next to the spare.

    For reference, this is the rear axle on the Ford Everest:

    ^The Truck Trend article mentions the truck sounds like it has the 3.2L I-5 diesel currently used in the full-size Transit van.

    On a different note, if the truck uses the global Everest rear axle, then it might use the global Everest/Ranger axle shafts as well with the 6x5.5" lug pattern ( https://www.wheel-size.com/size/ford/everest/2017/ ). Wonder who'll be the first to put TRD wheels on it. :devil:
