    Its old news to the rest of the world and Im sure it will be a while before the US see's it (but it was new to me).

    Tell us what do you think:

    same shit as everyone else
    It'll be nice when it comes out and for a year may be the best truck. But just wait till the 2013 tacoma comes out and beats them all to the ground!!!

    meh, I also saw nothing a Tacoma couldn't do...

    But at least Tacoma's finally have some more competition other than the Frontier

    I'm impressed! I had an old ranger, the tacoma is many times the vehicle. I am a fan of the F150 though so it is good to see ford step up their game.

    It is about time Ford makes a new Ranger. They have been lacking for years. Looks like they are actually trying to make it a good truck this time. Maybe a couple years down the road they will take the Ranger and make a mini-Raptor like truck.

    nice to see a crew cab finally, but the bed looks tiny. Don't discount ford, they have some pretty amazing engines and features lately. Don't care for the design much, but I believe it will be a pretty capable truck.

    watched the whole clip-not impressed at all. our taco's can still run circles around that ranger. Plus lets see how it is when it hits 60k miles- sure to turn into a piece of worthless crap with one problem after another.

    look at all the fanboys lol

    If it's a good reliable truck, i'm all for it. If it's not, then I'm not. That ranger vs current 2nd gen tacomas goes in favor of the ranger. We'll have to see what the 3rd gen tacoma has in store before any real comparison is made.

    Front end looks to car like to me, but the good side is the back seat looks spacious and comfortable. Overall I like it, just needs a more aggressive off road look from the front. Still no Yota though. ;)

    x2 haha. i know my tacoma couldnt do that. lol 2wd and all. but i think this will bring more competition to the tacoma. Because this Ranger looks almost the same size as the 2nd gen taco.
