What’s this? The new Ford Ranger. It is of course Ford’s newest pick-up truck, but oddly, the bits Ford are shouting about have nothing at all to do with off-roading load capacity or towing ability. Hmm. You call that a pick-up truck? I’m aware a fair few of you who tune into TG.com are peering across from North America, where trucks are a cult, a tribal way of life. And by comparison, what we Brits think of as a hulking parade float of chrome and brawn is pretty much a Happy Meal toy to you guys. We don’t get the forbidden fruit of F150s and Supercabs and Duramaxes over here. What we get is the Ranger, now more efficient and teched-out than any commerical Ford truck…ever. Time for some numbers.
