Just got back from Guatemala, and saw some pretty cool crew cab Ford Rangers. Did they sell these in U.S.?

Nope the "Global Ranger" isnt being sold in USA, and the biggest we got was the Extended cab. Never got diesel power either.

They won't sell here because they are making too much on the F150. Actually, the extended cab Ranger has 4 doors, not quite the same though.

I was surprised a few years back when I saw my 1st 4 door Ranger. Most all of the small trucks had 4 door models over seas. I think the Nissan was the 1st 4 door mini truck here in the USA.
I disagree with Ford's view on the new Ranger. I think a small truck customer is not a full size truck customer.
And there is room for both in the Ford line up. Even if the price and MPG is similar, some drivers perfer a smaller truck.
Did the old Explorer Sport Trak ( looks like the new Ranger doesnt it?) take away from F150 sales. Back then, they had the Sport Trac, Ranger, and the F150. I wonder if the new Explorer could be made into a new Sport Trac? The Ridgeline is similar.

Since Dodge announced the diesel full size Ram, Ford has announced it also will have a similar sized diesel in the F150 and it's going to be available fairly soon, probably an early 2016 offering. Since GM is coming out with the Colorado/Canyon and it also will have a diesel option, I look to see Ford watching very close at their sales figures. The current Global Ranger platform I don't see as viable in the USA. If you've ever driven one, it's a POS even when sitting on the dealer lots. It will take a complete redesign just get it ready for the US market. They do have a mid-sized platform they shelved a few years back that could be available a lot quicker and is more suited to the US market. Regardless, they are not about to threaten their current cash cow f-150 with another offering unless they can knock a major profit home run with it.
