You should buy it and transfer all the mechanicals into an American model Ranger.

I was thinking of buying it and a junk Ranger for the title... but that would be illegal. Also, who would I get to service it? I'm a decent mechanic, but I admit to knowing nothing about the inner workings of a modern diesel.

This is a pic of the older 2006 Ford Ranger 4 x 4's that was available in Argentina : Full crew cabs - about 17 cm (61/2 inches) longer for rear seats of 6 foot to sit comfortably, adjustable rear seats or tilt.....
Maybe it will look more familiar...

Am I right is saying you have a Mazda that has a similar appearance but only comes in the gas configuration.


And the Ford EcoSport 2.0L HDTI (Turbo Injection) 16 valve.... nice set of wheels at a reasonable price..... Under U$20K. Comes with all the options.

Yep, that's about what it looks like. I'd post pics, but my work is a military fabricator, so pics are non grata. All I know is, I want small diesels available here in the states!

I can expect that it will go something like this....

I also love the exploding pane glass windows. What a joke.

I laugh at the people who think toyota has done something great with their pregant roller skates to get 40 miles per gallon when my 86 Escort diesel got 54-57 mpg. And ran just quick as the new hybrids. Super little wagon until a drunk ran a redlight and took out the side of the backend.
