A bit big for her liking, but she will be fine after a while. We now plan to sell both our cars, so will become a two pickup household, and this will be the smallest.

Nice wheels Jim, and my favorite color as well.

Ruby red, baby!

It is a bit big, but nowhere near as big as my F350 that I had at the rally. I think that photo (taken from a low position) of Fords was meant to make it look more ominous.

Here are the other images from Ford. Kinda cool that it shows all the options, including the towing mirrors.

I meant to say EcoBoost. My bad. I had been looking at the Dodge 3.0 diesel, and my mind was muddled.

I was told in there that Ford will be bringing the Ranger and Bronco back to North America, possibly for 2017. Way too late for me, but the Ranger with one of the two diesel engines offered in Europe and Australia, would make a great tow vehicle, and be a bit smaller too. It is bigger than the previous version though.

Wow, news to me. I held off as long as possible buying my last Ranger. Gave up hoping they'd change their mind about continuing on with it. Bought one of the last ones available. The next year I went to New Zealand and saw the latest Ranger with a diesel. You're right, it is larger than even the last version of Rangers made here but I'd love to have one. So, 2017, I can handle that, my truck will almost be old by then.
