2014 Ford ranger 3.2 diesel

Is there any inclination that this COULD happen?

I haven't heard anything about it, but I think it could be a hit for businesses since it'll make high MPGs. Hope it happens!

GM is bringing over their international version of the Colorado/Canyon, with a diesel, which is a direct competitor for the T6 Ranger.

More than likely, Ford will wait and see how that sells. If it sells well, they'll bring over the T6. If it flops, then there will be no reason for them to bring the Ranger over.

The Colorado comes next year, so that means I wouldn't expect a new Ranger until at least 2015 or beyond (if they decide to bring it over).

Most people don't want to hear it, but I think, as far as Ford is concerned, the replacement for the Ranger is the Transit Connect small van. The largest purchasers of Rangers were delivery companies and other small fleets/small businesses. That was a niche the Transit Connect took over quite readily.

With all the new GM small diesels, I really hope they don't do the same thing they did in the 80s, nearly killing sub-HD diesel vehicles in the US.

It could.

The vehicle was engineered originally with the North American market in mind, and could easily be sold there. It passes all crash regulations, it was designed to accept the 3.7 v6 (which isn't currently fitted in any other markets), and the 3.5 Ecoboost could also fit (although I am not sure if cooling tests have been done for that engine). The 3.2 diesel also passes US emissions (although wasn't originally slated to be sold there)

The only reason it wasn't sold in the US originally was cost. It's a more expensive vehicle to produce than the previous Ranger - about what an F150 would cost, and its not much smaller now than an F150. With a US dollar that is getting stronger, it might make more sense to import them, or if they have lowered production costs make them in the states.

Personally I think there would have been a market for them at the higher cost, of all the small pickups I have driven, it is far and away the best.

So ya'll will know, you have be able to service them before you can sell 'em. No plans on classroom time for the 5 cyl diesel until 2014.

Am I correct in assuming this is for the transit?

Also, 2016 the Ranger will get a refresh - if it is to come to the U.S., I would expect it to be that model year.

They discontinued the Ranger. Not sure why they would suddenly want to bring it back, but who knows what Fords planning...

everything coming out of Ford is that the Ranger is dead forever. Small truck sales continue to shrink. Toyota is going to quit producing regular cab Tacomas. It's over.

FORD RANGER FROM BRAZIL

I was in Brazil last month, I took these pictures of a 2014 Ford Ranger displayed in a shopping center , it is 4x2
2.5L flex fuel engine 6sp manual transmission.
They do offer it on an extended cab, 4x4 automatic with a V6 as well. They also have it with a 3.2 Diesel engine.







BELOW YOU CAN SEE AN ANIMATION OF ITS 5 CYLINDER DIESEL ENGINE.

I saw one of these in August when I was in Alaska, between Anchorage and Valdez. It had foreign plates, and pulled over sight seeing.

They would want to bring it back with a small diesel because it will help raise Ford's corporate CAFE standards which are set to kick into high gear in 2015 (I think)...

Despite all of Ford's PR about the great mileage of their Eco Boost family of engines they cannot compare to the mileage of diesels... I rented a focus diesel wagon in Europe this summer and it was getting over 40 MPG (when converted to us specs) while being loaded with 4 adults and a variety of roads.

So if we could get a diesel Ranger with a 2.2L diesel it should be able to get mid 30's combined mileage and would make me trade my current Ranger in a heart beat.
