The diesel engine probably doesn't meet EPA standards, and aside from that the design SCREAMS Asia. That truck is the worst looking of any truck Ford has ever made. I am glad that I don't have to look at that thing on American roads.

Although its a 5 cylinder, its putting out about 1/2 the HP & TQ (197/346) of a new PSD in a 3.2L package.

RainStroked is starting off with a positive reputation.
The lack of a small diesel truck (Toyota, Nissan, Ford, etc..) I could use as a daily driver and still have some utility has been a big source of frustration for me for quite some time. I'd love a Hilux when I don't need my big Ford pickup for something light, imagine 30+mpg and still having pulling power and utility...not here I guess.

It meets EPA standards, and was designed in Australia (I worked on it).

Ford US don't want it, as they don't think it will sell. Go to your Ford Dealer and tell them otherwise

Yup, to rub salt into the wounds it was actually engineered and designed with the US market in mind. The 3.7l V6 from the base F150 drops right in (in the US that would be the volume seller - all other countries would only want diesels so the V6 engine got dropped when the US said no, although there is a 2.5l 4cyl gas engine - same as the Fusion), and all the trailer tow and performance testing was done in Colorado over Eisenhower pass and Pikes Peak...

US and Canada are the only 2 Ford markets not getting the truck, it is being sold in about 100 other countries.

I like the idea of a small pickup that gets 40mpg for dailly driving in a diesel also. VW had one I don't know why its not still here. They sold tons of them. Back then I believe they got 50mpg, and with todays TDI I bet they could improve on it. I like my F350 dually, but it is my dailly driver, and it costs, I like a pickup. Chet

VW still make a TDI pickup, it gets more like 30mpg (but it is also a lot bigger now-a-days)
Amarok | Volkswagen Australia


The Ranger gets around 40mpg in 4x2 form with its smaller engine (2.2l 150hp 4cyl diesel), and about 30mpg in 4x4 form with the larger 3.2 5cyl 200hp diesel engine.

Seriously, I mean I understand if they had to redesign the emissions system but honestly how much is the marginal cost for a truck that is already prepped for US emissions.

The biggest customer would be for contractors...a truck like that would go a little way to help with lower their fuel costs. Especially on stuff like truck for foreman or lightly loaded trucks.

Contacting your dealer, or Ford's customer relationship center is the best option to see it here.

I agree, I don't think it makes a lot of sense. Their argument is that the small truck market has really disappeared here, which is true, but it has disappeared because there haven't been any updates to the models. The Colorado and Dakota's are POS, the Frontier is ok, the Ranger is about 20yrs old, the Tacoma is arguably the only decent model amongst them (and as a result sells well... surprise, surprise!). Instead (thanks to newer models) 1/2 ton trucks can be bought that aren't priced a whole lot more, and get better gas mileage.
Why would someone buy a Ranger/Tacoma?

Usually Ford has a pretty good idea of what their customers want...but I think they missed the mark on this one. I needed something cheaper to commute in so I bought an Accord, had somebody made a small PU getting close to 32mpg like I do in my car, I would buy one. I really wanted a Ranger, but 22~24 out of a 4.0L just didn't quite cut it for me.
