I spent the last couple of weeks in Germany. My host had a Ranger Pickup similar to the one posted above with a Supercab. He had the 2.2L Diesel and said he got fantastic fuel mileage.
It is about the size of the current American F150's and was a 4x2 .
He is in the construction business and had previously owned a Full size Chevy Duramax that he had imported from America. But he said that truck was nice but way too thirsty and needed updated brakes. Said the stock brakes just didn't cut with his Autobahn driving.
We mostly drove his BMW 520D and I was really impressed with how that 2.0L engine propelled his mid sized car.

the main thing is they need to quite making the vehicle so big and technical does it seriously need 4 cup holders and a 6" lcd screen no it does not..... stamp some steel (or aluminum) into a simple body and install a good micro diesel and a 6 speed manual or durable little OD auto that's gonna be able to handle being used as a small truck, simple gauges (preferably manual gauges) and just make the hell out of them..... there is no reason why they should make these lil trucks as big as a full size its just not called for....
