Sneak Peek: 2012 Global Ford Ranger

The Detroit News

About a month ago, we brought you the first photos of Ford Motor Co.'s next-generation global Ford Ranger undergoing testing in the United States. Now we've caught Ford's latest truck at the start of a winter testing stint.

Ford sells two versions of the Ranger: the U.S.-built version sold domestically and in Canada, and a Thai-built (global) model that shares only its name with the North American Ranger. Production of the U.S. Ranger is scheduled to end in 2011.

The future overseas Ranger -- code-named T6 -- will be built on a single globally shared platform that's being designed in Australia. It's expected to be sold only in Southeast Asia, Australia, Africa, Europe and South America.

The truck in these pictures is right-hand drive with camouflage that's similar to that used on Ford's Falcon brand test cars. The six-lug wheels are the same lug count we've seen in earlier T6 Ranger spy shots.

U.S. and Canadian buyers interested in a successor to the Ranger will likely have to make do with only a more fuel-efficient Ford F-150.
