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.

smokenchoken has a good reputation on FTE.smokenchoken has a good reputation on FTE.
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....

Small diesel trucks needed

I would be one of the first in line to buy if Ford would build an actual *small* economy minded pickup truck... I had a tdi Volkswagen rabbit pickup for 250,000 plus miles that fit almost 90% of my needs while getting 55 mpg consistently... I'd still have it today if I wasn't made an offer I couldn't refuse.. I also own a powerstroke f350, but would be thrilled to be able to purchase another little pickup, that got* good *mpg.. My last three Rangers got less than 20 mpg!!!
Come on ford wake up!

I was just at a Mazda tech training class and the instructor said that the Mazda HQ in California had a few of the Mazda versions of this truck there for whatever reason. He did not seem to think that Mazda would offer a truck in the US again and with his knowledge of the upcoming training calender going a year out, there was nothing for it being offered. The higher ups out there didnt seem to think a truck would go with the US Mazda plan of zoom zoom. He was really impressed with the build quality of the truck and its apparent ruggedness. It seems with the US and its slow sales of small trucks not ending anytime soon I wouldnt count on anything coming. I agree that the "small" trucks got way too big and too expensive which is part of the reason people stopped buying them. A simple small nimble pickup with solid axles and good economy would be a breath of fresh air to me at least, not that I would buy one, as I love my old stuff too much. My Jeep Comanche does 95 percent of what I need done and I dont have to worry about scratching it or anything else. Same goes for the 85 Ranger my dad bought new and him me and my brother drove the wheels off of it (almost literally). Makes you long for the good ole days.

Seen them testing this, a VW truck, and the new Colorado diesel on the Ohio turnpike. Really cool in person.
