The new Ranger hopes to bring a new level of sophistication to the mid-sized pickup market.
As usual, the US won't get the good stuff like the diesel engines and it's doubtful we will get the manual transmission, no word yet on EV or hybrid variants. If Ford follows their past pattern, they will launch with the gasoline automatic and in a year or two introduce the hybrid.
I'm not thrilled with the massive center screen replacing physical controls or the electronic parking brake and 4WD system, but if it comes in a hybrid or a gasoline manual transmission, I will suck it up and put it on the short list.
