Petition to Bring Ford’s Global Diesel Ranger to America

Update: I am sticking this post to the front page for the next week to see how many signatures we can actually get. I’ve been told that for Ford to consider bringing the diesel Ranger here, the numbers would have to be “staggering.” So if you want this truck, comment on this post!

The fuel efficiency of trucks big and small hasn’t budged in 20 years. Ford is building a fuel-efficient diesel Ranger that can tow a train for the rest of the world, and we must convince them to bring it to America.

The Ford Ranger was first conceived in the mid-70’s, as Ford and the rest of the Big Three worked to improve fuel efficiency as mandated by the U.S. government. The Ranger was designed to be economical, but with similar versatility compared to full-size, V8 pickups.

Get this. When the Ford Ranger first debuted in 1983, it could be had with a diesel engine, and in 1985 a turbodiesel engine. A ’85 turbodiesel Ford Ranger with 2wd is rated by the EPA at 30 mpg (and once rated as high as 39 mpg highway before the new testing standards) and I’ve heard of people getting upwards of 45 mpg from gentle driving. That, my friends, was the high point, as oil prices eased and the diesel option was quietly discontinued. Since then, small truck fuel efficiency has been on a dramatic downward spiral.

The fact of the matter is, the Ford Ranger has not received a genuine update in almost 20 years, the last major “improvement” being the addition of the gutless, gas-guzzling 4.0 liter V6 engine (that was old even in the 90′s) as the top-end engine choice. Over the years, the Ford Ranger (like the F-150) has grown in size and weight without any serious improvements to the body or drivetrain. A 2011 Ford Ranger looks a lot like a 2000 Ford Ranger, which isn’t all that different from a 1994 Ford Ranger.

Sure, Ford toyed around with an EV Ranger, flex fuel, and even LPG models, but only because they had to. None of these models stuck around for long, and Ford has given the Ranger the same treatment it gave to the now-defunct Mercury brand. Offer the customers nothing new to differentiate it from other products in the lineup, and let sales of these aging vehicles slowly slide into oblivion. Then they have a great case for canceling the brand or model, and that’s exactly what happened, as the Ford Ranger is on the chopping block with no replacement in sight as Ford focuses on full-size trucks.

Unless I am mistaken, the Ranger the only vehicle left in Ford’s lineup with the abysmal 4.0 liter V6 engine and and so-old-it-should-be-dead 2.3 liter four-cylinder engine…which was first developed for the Ford Pinto. Both of these engines have roots dating back forty years ago.

Ford isn’t alone though. Both the Dodge Dakota and Chevy S10 offered awful gas mileage and meager towing/carrying capacities especially compared to the full-size trucks that were just a few thousand dollars more. As was the common theme during the early 2000’s, people bought more truck than they needed, and wound up with a 100 mile commute in a vehicle that gets, at best, 10 mpg at highway speeds. This is why the Big Three claim the small truck market has all but disappeared, and really, it’s their own doing as Toyota, Mitsubishi, and Nissan followed Detroit into small truck irrelevance.

Ford has already built the savior of the small truck market though, and it’s the new global Ford Ranger. This diesel pickup being marketed and sold in all the Blue Oval’s other markets (188 other countries in total) except America. Ford claims it is because the new Ranger is only 10% smaller than the F-150, and it doesn’t sell the F-150 anywhere else in the world. So what? This new Ranger has two diesel engine options; a 2.2 liter four-cylinder with 276 ft-lbs of torque, and a 3.2 five-cylinder with 346 ft-lbs of torque. For those keeping score at home, the bigger diesel engine is nearly as powerful as Ford’s much-touted EcoBoost V6, but with one less cylinder and, in all likelihood, much better gas mileage. That’s enough torque to tow a train. Why can’t we have that?

Sorry Ford. I don’t need your EcoBoost F-150. It’s just too much truck for me, and quite frankly, 22 mpg on the highway ain’t that impressive, especially considering what you are offering the rest of the world.

I want torque. I want fuel efficiency. I want towing and versatility and four-wheel drive, which is what I thought I’d get in the Mahindra diesel pickup from India. At the very least, just give me a small diesel engine as an option in the F-150, and I’ll be one happy camper. Better yet, just bring the global Ranger to America. That’s the shot in the arm the small truck market needs. If it doesn’t sell well, you can always stop importing it, right? Give America the small diesel pickup we deserve, damnit.

If you agree with me, leave a comment down below, and get your friends to sign it too. This is a 1-in-1,000 shot here, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. We have to show Ford, and the rest of the automakers, that there are people out there that want to buy a small, versatile, fuel efficient truck. Is that really so hard to believe?

      I live in the Caribbean and diesel rangers are everywhere. I own a 2004 diesel Ranger and can’t imagine owning a different truck – a true joy to drive. I’m considering adding an extra tank in the bed so I can run on veggie oil but at 34 mpg I’m in no hurry to upgrade. The fact that this truck isn’t available in the states in ridiculous and proof that the powers at be do not want US citizens to be free of the oil companies.

    I would love to see a diesel Ranger or F-150 (or more diesel vehicles in general). It is my understanding that the U.S. EPA regulations make it too difficult and too costly to bring diesels to the States from other countries. The goal should not be trying to get Ford to bring a diesel Ranger, but to figure out why they are unable to bring more diesel versions of their vehicles. If our EPA regulations are they root causes behind this, then we should petition changing our regulations to be more like the rest of the world.

        • http://Web Indy Bio-Diesel

          I’ve read several places (though no idea if it’s true) that Europe’s clean exhaust requirements are more difficult to pass than those in the United States.

          If this is true then those laws are not the issue.

          Regardless the fact is that there are more diesel cars on the market in the USA that are offered by foreign manufacturers than there are those by US owned automakers.

          If its such a burden to sell a diesel car here then why can Japanese and European owned auto companies do so?

    • jay bee

      ford will never bring economical diesels in. their friends in ‘big oil’ are obviously giving them too much under the counter. why else would they hold them back? what other compelling reason for keeping them off the market could they possibly have? the 7.3 v8 black bellowing smoke stacks sure passed opa’s standards… and no… it’s not a typo- it’s what that federal outfit’s real name should be- the “oil protection agency”. why else would it be ok to bellow out smoke at 10mpg but completely environmentally unsound to do it at 40mpg? the government/ oil companies (is there a difference?) don’t want fuel economy- especially not from diesels, which can be run on vegetable oil for a fraction of the cost. non-oil dependence… how dare you! don’t you realize how well big oil fincances elections?

    After being Ram tough for years I have just in the pass few years come around to appreciating Ford trucks, the Ranger in particular so I conclude that Ford must know and not care that they are going to lose a group of loyal Ranger owners by not bring this truck to America. I know I can on talk for one but I am sure there are a LOT of others who share my belief. So it is back to being Ram Tough for me should I need a new truck.

    Bring one like in the picture, I will buy a top for the bed, and it will serve all of my needs. I would be able to haul the grandkids, and in the back all of my gear for when I do train shows.

If you can’t put it in the Ranger then put it in the Escape, and make it a Hybrid, dang can you imagine the mileage with that combo?

    Although a diesel Ranger would be fine, I’d like to see some of the smaller cars (Yaris, Fit, Civic and the like) come over here in the super-efficient small diesel engines.

    Getting a pick-up truck to get 26mpg instead of 19mpg because it’s diesel is fine, but getting a small car to get 60mpg instead of 40mpg will turn more heads and get the younger and enviro-conscious car buyer’s attention and might actually contribute to change the attitude of North american consumers towards diesel cars.

  • Sean

    Until now I have only owned three vehicles. My first two were Toyota Hi-lux and Tocoma trucks. I loved them both. When it came time to replace my last Toyota, I was looking for a fuel efficient small truck (preferably a diesel). Nothing.

    I was so upset with the lack of choices, I decided to say good-bye to trucks and try something different — an Audi TT Quattro. Over the last 5 years I’ve been happy: with 27 MPG Turbo and 4 wheel drive, this vehicle has not let me down. I can’t throw a tree in the back, but I can not tell you the eyes I’ve turned this past winter as I’ve passed numerous front/rear wheeled vehicles thrown off the road by ice and snow. The TT was a good decision, …but, I do miss having a dependable truck.

    I have always liked Toyota because of their engineering and styling, and for that reason never thought twice about a small Ford or Chevy. American mileage has always been too low, and exterior/interior designs have always been too boxie and cheap. I started noticing the Mahindra about a 1 1/2 years ago, and hoped it might make it here to the States. I can’t say I liked the styling, but the initial diesel specs looked great — so much for wishful thinking. But the latest Int’l Ford Ranger, …wow! Ford finally got it right. I’m interested enough that I actually thought to go abroad and ship one over.

    What is Ford thinking? A small diesel truck is a definite winner. Like Apple’s iPhone and iPad, the first manufacturer that brings one to the US market is going to sweep the competition. DUH! So what if a small truck eats into Ford’s F150′s? Wouldn’t they rather it be one of their own design? Run the numbers: there are so many of us would-be-small-truck-owners frustrated by what is not available among the current small truck offerings, (that like myself,) we have made due with something else.

    I want a small truck! I want a small truck that is fuel efficient, can run on bio-diesel off the factory floor, and has some style! An electric-hybrid might be nice, but get real. In the cold, batteries are not dependable. Bio-diesel may not be dependable for winter running, but if a truck could take both bio and diesel, you could get the best of both worlds. Run straight diesel in the cold and gain efficiency during the rest of the year. Best of all, it would be a GREEN vehicle. Now who wouldn’t want that.

    Count me in, …if not a the Ford, then it will be the first manufacturer that runs a small efficient diesel off the factory floor.

    • Jason Carpp

      Exactly! What was Ford, and every other truck manufacturer thinking when they quit offering small compact trucks? “Demand for compact trucks have dwindled”? Bullshit dwindled! I don’t believe that’s what happened. I think what happened is that truck makers just haven’t been listening to what we, the customers want from our cars and trucks. If we want a compact truck with a diesel engine, we should be allowed the option of a diesel powered compact truck.

    I agree whole-heartedly about this situation! I am a huge ranger enthusiast, have been cranking wrenches on them for years now. The disheartening thing about owning a full size (F-150 and above) is just that.. its a fullsize, and not everyone needing a truck wants a truck that big – you can do JUST as much with a smaller truck, while still being economical and have great gas mileage. The best part about the diesel engine in the ranger? Gas mileage, torque, tow ratings, slap a trailer brake on and you can tow every bit as much of a load that an F150 can, while still maintaining the versatility of a small pickup.. which is the main reason we buy the smaller ones anyway!

      I HAVE A 2001 FORD RANGER EDGE .I PURCHASED IT NEW.I AM THINKING ABOUT PUTTING A SMALL DIESEL IN IT BUT IT WOULD BE MORE FUSIBLE TO BUY A NEW RANGER WITH THE NEW STOCK DIESEL.BRING THEM ON I GOT MY CHECK BOOK OUT FORD.

    I have been a Chevy driver all my life, including my 1987 Chev S10 4X4 which gave me about 18 MPG overall and lasted for 19 years and 314,000 miles. I replaced it with a 2005 Chev Silverado which also gets about 18 MPG overall. In 2006 we bought a 2005 4X4 Jeep Liberty Diesel for my wife, and it has achieved 27 MPG on the open road in the summer time. If Ford were to bring out a Diesel Ranger, or even a Diesel powered small car good for commuting purposes, I may think seriously about leaving Chevy completely (unless GM could also match such a vehicle). Ford, please bring the small Diesel to the USA, for it seems GM and Dodge don’t want to do it! I do believe there is a market for clean burning fuel efficient diesels in America. However, somebody is dragging their feet on selling more Diesels in America, and I am quickly reaching the conclusion that it appears to be a political issue and not a technological issue.

    Yes, in todays economy this truck would be a huge hit. First of all it would be the only one of its kind in America. Secondly, why should Ford care if they make money on this or the F-150. Its not a new concept…they already are in production!! So, it actually only means making more and allowing us to have more choices…WIN WIN

    Yes, bring to the U.S. what the rest of the world has available. Why should we not get these fuel efficient vehicles? Because we have put the EPA in charge of our auto industry. If you don’t believe this, remember the 1984 honda CRX? I had one that got 54.6 MPG consistently and it was not a hybrid. Todays hybrid barely get 50 MPG!!! The rest of the world may have high fuel prices but they also have vehicles that get twice the MPGs that ours do!!!

  • http://Web Chris Ingham

    If Ford could bring this to market I would guarantee I would buy one as very few trucks get over 23 mpg my 94 CTD gets and still tow something. Even if it is only 5 or 6k lbs it is more than a car, and 30mpg means I can afford to drive it.

    Bring this to America Ford. People with farms will go ape for it.

  • http://Web armed_partisan

    My first two cars were GMs, which sucked, so my last three cars have been Fords, including my much beloved Mercury Marauder. Now that I have a car, my next purchase will likely be a midsized or SMALLER pickup truck. I don’t haul horses, cars, tractors, or houses around, so I really don’t need a 6.7L behemoth. I want something that’s 4×4 and has a small displacement turbo-diesel, because Diesel is the FUTURE. For about two years, I’ve been eyeballing that Mahindra Pickup, and I’ll probably buy one when they come out, even though it’s hideously ugly. If for some reason I decide not to buy a truck, I will be getting a car with a diesel in it, and that will very likely be a Volkswagen, since I can’t afford a BMW or MB.

    Bottom Line: I DEMAND a small displacement Diesel, and if Ford doesn’t give it to me, I’ll buy from someone who will.

    Why, why, why can’t they understand. Years ago I owned an 85 Jeep Cherokee with a 2L 4cyl TDI from Renault that used to consistently get 850km to a 70L tank. I topped 1000K a few times with this SUV and in hilly terrain in Nova Scotia. High mileage diesels can be done here, but it cuts into there more profitable F150 line so there is no real incentive for them as they see it. The problem is they don’t think outside the box and do not realize there are lots of people who just will go without and not buy F150s. I would love a Crewcab Ranger TDI but an not willing to buy the over bloated F150 just to move the snowblower and some building supplies around with 10mpg efficiencies. North American trucks are built for work, not for the DIY guys who primarily use them as people movers. Everywhere else but here. SAD!

    I would love a mid-sized diesel truck. If you look around online people pay big bucks for the older Diesel Rangers, F150s and the Diesel Toyota Pickups and Hiluxs. There is a market for these trucks. Also, make em look more like the 9 series Fords. Ever since 98 trucks have been getting bigger and uglier. They look like they were designed by a woman (no offense, they just look effeminate to me) And let us use up to B50 without voiding the warranty.

    Mike

  • http://Whywouldtheygiveuswhatwewant? Jim V.

    If Ford begins production of a small to mid-sized diesel then the logjam would break. Chevy and Dodge would have to follow suit. That would result in a huge shift of customers away from full-sized pickups and loss of big bucks to American auto manufacturers.

    Ford did a survey several months back asking the general public for feedback on their products and for suggestions. The largest response was directed at the lack of diesel options in their lineup.

    V/W and Audi can’t keep up with the demand for diesel cars, while American manufacturers put great diesel engines in their European models and ignore the desires of the home market – all to shield the high-profit light truck line-up from competition. I’d love to see a Ranger or 1500 diesel, but I’m not holding my breath.

    Ford should bring the diesel engines to N.

    Ford, you need to address this market. If not with the T-6 then something else — even smaller. If that’s not going to happen, then bring the T-6 to the US and equipt it with a small diesel or (given diesel’s high prices) a 2.5L DOHC-4 EcoBoost.

    The F150 is just to physically large to meet the needs of everyone.

      Ford knows that if they release a compact diesel pickup they will lose a significant portion of their customers who buy diesel three quarter tons and one tons. The cost of making a diesel F-350 would be about the same as making a diesel 150 or ranger. Customers would expect the ranger to cost much less than the F-350 and Ford would not make near the profit margin. Also, more importantly, the federal government emissions standards are so strict on diesel vehicles a diesel ranger would get around only 30 mpg highway and still cost around 35-40k to buy.

    Is Ford an American company? I am confused…I was just perusing the internets for a smallish 4×4 when I can across the ranger. I had heard that it was discontinued in the US. I had fond memories of it from the late 80′s. You have no idea how excited I was when I got a look at it for 2012. I had been waitin for the Mahindra…..yeah? I almost lost my mind when I read about a diesel engine…! At last someone gets it….aaahhhhh Ford you rock! not offered in north America! I don’t get it, you will be making the vehicle. Are you making it with lead paint with a touch of crazy to sell to the rest of the world? Does it have PCP inside the frame and drug dogs aren’t your thing. I don’t get it? Would one of the ‘little’ three shit or get off of the pOT when it comes to a decent midsize!!!!

I drive a 1 ton superduty everyday for work. But for personal use I would much rather use this. Home depots and lowes had way to small parking lots for my f150.

    My wife has a Diesel VW Jetta it is not slow or noisy by any means.

All I need to haul is some dirt and plants for the yard, some bicycles, a few boards for a project, anything that is too large to fit in a car. I would really like to have the option of a 4cyl diesel in that truck. it would be nice to have the same amount of torque in my truck that my wife has in the Jetta not to mention 34mpg in the city. The VW diesels fly out the door of the dealerships, some dealers just mark them up several thousand because they can. I can imagine a diesel Ranger becoming the number one selling fleet truck for American businesses. The longevity of the motor, the pulling power from increased torque, they would be factors small business would look at.

It is obvious that municipalities could also benefit along with private companies, and of course private owners. Bring them on!!

    These two deisels under discussion have been available in europe,where they were developed, since ’07 or ’08.
    I believe we miss the point however.
    Europe, Asia, Africa, and DownUnder are predominantly diesel so why not North America?
    An honest petro-chemist will tell you that if it costs $1.00 to refine a gallon of gas; it costs about $0.33to refine the equivalent quantity of diesel.
    So why is diesel equal in price (until recently in Canada even more expensive than gas)to gas?

    Almost all of our plastics exit the ‘cracking’ process
    between gas and diesel… so in effect N.A. gas consumers
    subsdise the plastics industry,ie Monsanto, Exxon et al.

    As long as directors from oil co.’s and OEM vehicle producers sit on each others board of directors…

    As long as governments have a vested interst ,(taxes)in allowing ‘big oil’,and it is big ,.(about 40%of world GDP)to do as it collectively pleases, (eg. Gulf oil spill)…
    As long as you don’t bitch to much at gas being $5.00, $6.00 or Even $10.00/gal. You’ll be able to watch, on TV; the, proportedly cleaner-than-any NA. hybrid, F150D

  • http://Web Will

    so, here’s my situation. I drove a 4.0 liter Ranger for about 10 years. towed with it. off-roaded with it. but the fuel economy was never quite what I’d hoped for from a compact pick up. it was time to upgrade and the best I could do for combined fuel economy and torque was a 5.7 liter Chevy 1500. with performance parts I’ve been able to get the fuel economy to the low 20s highway. not great, but basically as good as the Ecoboost! I’ve been saying for years that it’s too bad one of the big three doesn’t offer a small turbo diesel in either a compact pick up or a half ton. that’s exactly what I’m looking for. I think Ford has taken a step in the right direction with the Ecoboost, but why not take it a step further with a diesel option? I like the space available in a half ton, but if a Ranger had a turbo diesel option, I’d jump on it in a heartbeat!

  • http://Web Terry Hollis

    I can honestly say, if this truck came to market, my trusty 03 Tacoma w 150000+ miles would be gone very quickly and a 4×4 diesel ranger would be in my driveway!!

Just the right size and power, but the gas milage sucks.

    Dear Ford, Bring on the diesel ranger. And while you are at it how about a diesel version of the Transit? I expect it only comes in diesel in the rest of the world. this would be a great way to introduce Americans to the “new diesels” . People would drive them at work and realize it is better than gas.

    • http://Web Jeff

      I would love to buy a new small diesel pickup or diesel SUV. To bad the American companies won’t build one. Doesn’t seem like rocket science – put a small fuel efficent diesel motor in a small pickup or SUV. Fuel can’t get much cheaper in the future, so this seems like a pretty good idea. I will never buy another new american small tow vehicle (3500lbs) until they come up with something that can get decent mileage. Diesel seems like a simple solution. I’ll just keep buying used vehicles and waste money on fuel.

      Been a chevy fan for years. I had to get a vehicle fast when tranny blew on my lumina. I got this 1994 ranger 2.3 2wd, super basic, no air, manual steering 5 speed. It has 175k on it. I just changed the plugs and went from 19mpg to 24mpg, handy, but still sucks. I got 29 in my lumina on hwy with the vortec v-6 and its curb weight is higher than ranger. Anyway.. This ranger takes a beating and just keeps going, kinda, almost, kinda starting to be ok with it. The cab is standard so seating space sucks, but work around that. So you say bring a High Efficient Turbo Diesel 4WD 4door Ranger to america that gets 30+mpg?

      Why the hell wouldnt they, it makes more dam sense, then selling 4/6 cylinder gas engine rangers that get 24mpg or less off the show room floor.

    Currently being a driver of Ford’s 1983 2.2L Diesel Ranger and experiencing the PHENOMENAL fuel efficiency of a Prius out of a small truck with a 7 foot box is unbelievable. Last tank I got 51.48 city MPG on fuels made from local waste and think with more gentle driving, high quality fuel, and fastidious maintenance I will make 60+ MPG city soon. Anyways, long story short, I would love to see more modern diesels in America including this awesome looking global diesel Ranger.

    I am an avid offroader and can testify 90+% of 4x4s in Europe are diesels, the tiny Suzuki Samurai and Lada Niva being the sole exceptions. Nobody in his right mind would buy a 4×4 or a pickup with a gas engine, when a TDi will provide gobs of hp, tons of torque and still deliver 15+Km/liter; that’s 35-40mpg from a Ford Ranger, Toyota Hilux, Nissan Navara, Land Rover Defender 130… you name it, they’re all TDis and do a great job with a 2.5 – 3.0 liter 4-cylinder engine, 140hp is all you need to cruise at 70mph and when you click into low traction and torque counts more than sheer hp !

  • http://Web Brian Langston

    I would like to see what kind of mpg numbers that 3.2L 5 cylinder diesel engine would get in the F-150. And maybe in the Expedition. If Ford wants to get serious about fuel economy while keeping power, then bring on the diesel engines. If their Lincoln brand is going to compete with BMW and Mercedes then they should offer them in the diesels as well. Why is Ford waiting to see how the market reacts to other companies diesels? If we wanted to buy a different brand then we would do it. Don’t make people change brands to get the engines they want!

    I’ve been selling Ford Vehicles for over 11 years, and yes me and all my customers want a small diesel engine in the ranger and also the F-150…… There is a market out there for small pickup buyers and they want the power and fuel economy. So why dont you give us the Diesel????

    im thinking about building a small truck it would be a lot easer to buy it so ford get your head out of your @$$ and build us americans one

  • http://n/a Kevin

    I think this is a marketing ploy. They want to be the first to bring back the small pickup – better than ever.

    Let me share with everybody how disgusted I truly am by all of this.

    I bought a 2008 Ranger new off the lot because that was the SIZE of truck I needed. I require fuel efficiency for commuting to and from work (60 miles a day), as well as a cargo box for carrying messy stuff such as garbage to the dump, or a greasy oily engine or other vehicle part for one of my projects. I certainly don’t want to put rotting garbage in the back of my car!!! Seriously!

    F-150′s don’t really fit into the typical garage that modern north american homes are equipped with. These trucks have become HUGE… far too big. They aren’t even available with a manual transmission anymore! That is just a travesty on its own.

    My little ranger can do all I want except for one thing… tow a heavy load. Now there is a driveline out there that could even be bolted into a current north american ranger that makes 350 LBS/FT of torque and gets fantastic gas mileage? It is in the ford Transit vans (with a 6-spd manual, might I add) in europe, and is coming available in this new global ranger. This makes me sick.

    The current N/A ranger is the perfect little truck. It has stood the test of time, all the bugs have been worked out, it fits in people’s garages, it can take crap to the dump. If it could get a torquey power-plant with a 6-speed stick-shift it would be the perfect vehicle for anyone who needs a truck other than a construction worker.

    Lets not forget… the current ranger has:
    - Boxed front frame.
    - Serviceable wheel bearings.
    - Live rear axle.
    - Engine can be replaced WITHOUT REMOVING THE CAB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    - Manual transmission option (some of us both WANT and NEED this!)
    - Body-on-frame construction… again… some of us need a small vehicle with a REAL frame!

    Wake up Ford. My father gave you 41 years of his life, and was one of the best mechanics a dealership ever saw. You are insulting us. Give us the small diesel truck in North America. And furthermore, read the above comments and don’t stiff us with automatic trannies, non-serviceable wheel bearings, engines that can’t be removed and unibody frames.

    I think I am done for now.

    Kevin

    Heck yeah, I drive an 09 Jetta Sportwagen TDI and love it (40 MPG average) but what I really want is a 4×4 diesel pick-up that gets great MPG and doesn’t cost $50K+. I find I need 4×4 and there’s always a need for a pickup for transporting bikes and wood and towing and snow, etc… As an experienced diesel owner let me tell you, there is nothing better than having torque and economy and longgevity and to throw in 4×4 and pick-up space and towing, I’m all onboard as long as the cost stays reasonable….none of this $8K diesel mark-up. My TDI option was a $1,500 mark-up which is very reasonable.

I am only asking that you live up to your name and give the nation that fed your success what it asks for, it’s only common courtesy.

  • http://Web Eric Neegmuh

    Biased article is biased.

    And author is not good at hiding facts.

    The global ranger is more expensive than a better equipped F150, and the ranger’s ancient diesel engines have no hp, even with turbos. Torque is nice, but if mpg is that important to you, go beg GM for a 2.0 turbo’d ecotec, it’ll outperform your dinosaurs.

  • http://Web Chris W

    Big oil would never let this happen. They have convinced the american car companies that american’s do not want diesels. In reality nothing could be further from the truth. We WANT efficient diesels in trucks that don’t weigh 6000lbs. The 250,350 etc are all well and good, but it is massive overkill for a vast majority of the market.

    The Ecoboost is a failure. It gets about the same gas mileage as the V8. What is the point?

    GIVE THE U.S. A DIESEL F150….NOW!!!

But Mahindra has decided to “punt the ball down field”. Right now, Ford looks like they are “taking their ball home”. FORD! I want a small diesel truck.

  • John Pino

    Loved this most informative piece. I could not aggree more. I own a Tacoma pick-up and a VW Clean Diesel Jetta. The mileage on the Jetta is fabulous 40-45 mpg. The Tacoma is about half that. If a car company, preferably domestic, offered a diesel light truck I would not hesitate to trade the Tacoma. Its a great truck but you just can not beat the fuel efficiency of a diesel.

    I am looking to trade my 2002 Ranger but there is nothing good on the market. I would pay more for a diesel Ranger with 6 speed manual than the price for an F-150.

    I have been looking HIGH AND LOW at mid-size truck options, and they all suck in one way or another! Toyota’s got their AWFUL interior, Nissan is, well….Nissan. Chevy has lost my business due to poor build quality. I bought my F-150 because I HAD NO OTHER CHOICE. I still think it’s too big, and the gas mileage is absolutely horrible. I love Ford’s interior work, and the sound of these new diesels and EcoBoost engines perks my interest. Even if they put in the EcoBoost 2.0L I-4, and give the option of the 3.5L V6, those engines are already developed and ready to use! I would buy a new Ranger in a heartbeat!!!

  • Ken Risse

    I’ve been driving my Mazda B-2300 (Ford Ranger) since 1996. I want a small pickup with a diesel, a Ford Ranger would be fine, and if they don’t sell one soon, Dodge, GM, Volkswagon, Subaru or anyone else that offers one will get my attention, and probably my business.

    Please bring this truck to North america. Even if it doesn’t have the diesel motors, it’s going to get better fuel economy than the larger pick ups – and i for one can’t justify having a full size truck in my yard. Please Ford, you sell small cars to those people who want a small car and large cars to those who want a large car. Don’t force me to drive a big truck that i don’t need.
    Consider this a HUGE vote for the new Ranger. It would be ideal for me.

    I could not agree more with the above article. Canada can appairently have diesel F-150 crew cabs. Why the US cannot, I do not understand. It they can meet EPA standards for the F-250 diesel, they should also be able to meet it for the F-150 diesel. If the theam for much of the US is to go green, then Ford should develope this truck in the US. Appairently, Ford has not learned from past mistakes, when import cars almost pushed the US gas hogs out of the market competely. Wake up Ford!!!!

    the U.S. has a huge market for this vehicle. If the Diesel is too costly to EPA Certify then the 2.0 EcoBoost would fill the bill nicely. plenty of power and economy. 2wd and 4wd models with 1,000-1,400 lb payload would sell like hotcakes and fleets would love them. big money there.

  • MNDaveW

    Ford does not care if 10,000 people want diesel Rangers. Ford is betting that (like most folk) they will settle for an F-150. Ford is firmly focused on the nation’s best selling vehicle and they will do NOTHING that MIGHT result in the loss of a single F-150 sale. When the choice is between ecological responsibility, customer satisfaction and profit, it’s a one horse race.

  • Dave

    YES, YES, YES. Instead of thinking the F150 market will suffer, consider winning over all the Tacoma, Colorado, Frontier owners. After all, they want to drive Ford trucks, just not a HUGE F-series, or outdated Ranger. I have an F150, but it’s too much truck. It’s going on consignment this weekend. A diesel option on the F150 would probably keep me. But for now it’s off to find a Tacoma. What a shame too!! I love Ford, I want to support Ford, but the exact Ford vehicle I want/need is only offered in 188 OTHER countries…and NOT the good old US of A. What would Henry Ford think of this “racket”?? How can I buy a 3.2L Diesel, Left-Side drive 4×4 Global Ranger and import it into the US???

    I have been on the hunt for a new truck for the past few months. It’s been pretty frustrating to find that there are limited spectrums when searching this market. You have either a tiny truck with decent power or behemoths with retard strength. A ranger with an efficient, but sturdy diesel engine sounds appealing, but seeing that Ford loves playing in the pissing wars with the other American giants, they wont be seeing me throw my money their way. Until that day comes it’s going to be a Tacoma for me.

  • Josh

    I want to own a diesel light truck. Pay attention to the used VW diesel market, Ford! Try finding a used diesel wagon or get on the waiting list for a new one, and you might realize that people are embracing the diesel offerings. My next truck will not be an F-150. I would buy the world Ranger with a diesel, but until that is available, Toyota will get my money.

    This is my IDEAL DREAM TRUCK!!!! Please sell it to US citizens!!!

  • Whit

    I agree that Ford should bring the Global to the states. As a mater of fact I think that it would be a good idea to consolidate their vehicle line up entirly and offer the same vehicles in all markets. During a visit to germany I saw a vehicle that caught my eye. As I got closer to the car I saw an oval on it. As a Ford ceritfied technician I didn’t reconize it. It was diesel powered!! The owner and I spoke and he offered me a test drive. It was AWSOME!! The tourqe and power to weight was wounderful. No turbo lag or typical hesitation. I wanted one, but not available in the states. Some years back I seen a 4dr Ranger in Mexico. So I started to research. I read many articles and came acrost a bloger that claimed to have uncovered some documents form Ford on this very subject. I wish I would have copied the info to be accurate and give credit where credit is due. But what I read is that the official release on the subject from ford was that the 4dr Ranger did not meet US safety standards. Specifically the glass and B-pillars. However, the blog continued with a document that looked official that stated, bringing the 4dr Ranger to the states would be detrimental to the sales of the Explorer Sport which has a larger profit margin. As for the truth to all this I can not comfirm and I don’t claim these statements to be true, but I wouldn’t doubt it. Also a while ago I saw an artical from one of those engineering research schools like MIT that did a study that if 10% of the US vehicles that are gas were accually diesel then we could be almost completly oil independant. So if that were to be true and the EPA is the ones making it harder for diesel certification, I wounder if there is a link. Any how thats my two cents, I don’t know if it is worth that but I would absolutly puschase one. Blue 4X2 XLT 4dr 2.2L TDCi Manual 6-speed please. On a personal note I have not seen a true truck in many years that made a truck a truck. I think there is still a market for trucks, so Ford and the others could cut costs and offer better pricing if they built trucks and not luxury vehicles with cargo and towing capabilities. My Personal favorite that I have owned, 1977 F-250 300cid I-6 4-spd Manual. I towed an 80,000lbs loaded semi out of the road with this truck when the semi broke down and was blocking traffic. Now that was a TRUCK!

      I am not disputing the content and I really shouldn’t criticize one particular comment but why when there is a built in spell checker do supposedly intelligent people ignore it. The spelling errors (at least 8 by my count) in this comment degrade its importance.

  • Stan

    Yes, bring the global Ford Ranger Diesel 4×4 to the US! Tons of torque, manual transmission, great fuel mileage and it fits in a garage!
    If Ford won’t pay attention, perhaps Toyota is reading and will make the Diesel HiLuxe available to US buyers. That would be a F-150 killer!

  • BMWRich

    Sign me up!
    Cash in hand,..just waitin’ for vehicles to arrive at the Dealer

  • P. Broadway

    Build me a 2 wheel drive short bed regular cab 4 cylinder diesel Ranger pickup with a no frills utility package. No air conditioning, No leather seats/panels. Steel wheels with Steel hubcaps. No electric anything. Just a utilitarian tow/work vehicle that costs less than $15,000.00 USD that I can use to make money with.

  • pat holt

    it is absolutly stupid of ford not to sell that truck here in america had a 93 ranger with 4.0 & it was agood truck for its size iwould buy adiesel ranger just as soon as i could afford to

  • http://www.musconetcong.org Bill Leavens

    Holy Mackerel!! Ford – are you paying any attention AT ALL!! This is the freaking market speaking DIRECTLY TO YOU!. I want a diesel Ranger and I will pay whatever premium you are asking. I have a twelve year old Nissan Frontier that I love, but it’s disintegrating before my eyes. I will only buy a SMALL pickup and I will only buy a diesel. If Chebby gets there, you lose. If Suzuki or Mahindra or Toyota or Nissan get there, you lose. And there are THOUSANDS of folks like me out there who want to buy a SMALL DIESEL pickup. Please realize that this market is REAL. Small pickups mean utility and efficiency. Diesels means utility and efficiency. I’m ready to buy.

  • Mike Bown

    Fantastic idea. I’ve recently become a ‘Ford Man’ and would love a nice small diesel pickup.

  • Victoria Reiners

    Yes, please! I love my Passat wagon TDI (diesel), but the last one VW made was 2005. Would love to have the option to buy a small diesel truck. Yes!

  • Mike

    I’ll Buy one, put me on the list….. Let me put down my deposit…. Come on FORD make us proud don’t wait to come to the party late… Be number 1 be Ford Tough.

  • Rafael Núñez

    Diésel is the future. Not EV.
    When will América wake up and smell the fumes?

  • Andrew

    Yes, bring the Ranger the world gets to the US.

  • Terrance Skantz

    I think Ford is making a very big mistake by refusing to sell the redesigned Ranger in the U.S. There will, of course, always be a big demand for large pickups by a segment of the population. But, for many, the new Ford Ranger would be much, much preferred. I know I would buy the new Ranger based on what I have seen and read.

  • Chauncey Barber

    I am all for a small diesel truck.

  • J Heasty

    It all depends on price and reliability. I’m ready for a small and economical diesel truck and would by one. But, It’s obvious these days that anything that would be reliable and would last is not what these people want to sell. They want you back every 3-5 years to buy something new so they know they will have jobs.

  • dex

    I’d buy one in a heartbeat! Tired of the oversized behemoths that US manafacturers ram down our throats, disel pickup in a Ranger for the win!

  • Susan

    I would b first in line for a diesel compact!!!

  • Steve

    I have a 2009 ranger and its a great truck, it would be an incredible truck with a diesel. I would buy myself one and my wife one.

  • sean

    Bring me back my Ford Ranger! Those suckas are bulletproof!

  • Chris

    I would love a compact diesel pickup. I can’t justify a truck now because they all get terrible gas mileage.
    The best alternative I can find right now is the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI.

  • Mark

    I’d buy one today if it were available in the USA. We need to be progressive with work vehicles that have high fuel mileage. Bring it to the USA Ford or I’m buying a Diesel VW instead, since you apparently do not want our money.

  • John

    I’ve been wanting a small deisel truck (or UTE as they call them in Australia) for years. They dominate the market anywhere else in the world. I’d buy immediately.
    Cummins/Nissan has an ongoing development program for a small deisel pick-up, but it won’t be available for a few years.

  • Kenneth Hanovich

    I would LOVE to see not only the Ranger but the entire diesel platform offered in the US. I want diesel economy and torque! Don’t make me go to VW for a diesel car, please!

  • P

    Im a longtime Ranger owner and was thinking about retiring my 1991 Ranger and getting a new one this year. It sucks to find out that they are no longer selling the Ranger in the US and makes me mad that other countries are getting an American truck. Its an American company, you would think that all makes and models would be available for the country in which the company was built. From all that I have read and seen on this new model it seems a great evolution of the Ranger even if it is similar to the F-150 now. Bring it back to the US!!!!

  • Richard L

    I’ve been wanting to own a diesel for fuel mileage that is versatile as a truck. I would buy a Diesel Ranger if made available in the US!!!!

  • Rick Simons

    I agree 100%. It has ticked me off for some time that american car companies are not producing diesel vehicles. It makes so much more sense than hybrids. My brother bought a diesel Jetta and gets over 40mpg on the highway.

  • Craig Thompson

    I would love to buy diesel Ranger! My 2004 4.0L is a gas guzzler!

  • matt maruska

    Bring it here! Give us something that gets real fuel economy!

  • http://www.loeracbi.com lazaro loera

    I echo everything you said. Bring the diesel ranger to the US NOW.! I will buy one immediatelly.!

  • Brad Hebert

    I’m waiting for ford to bring the diesel ranger to America to buy a new truck.

  • Blake

    I can only hope ford has a “better” option for truck buyers soon. Otherwise it seems like more of the flawed logic that almost bankrupt the company. I would buy a global ranger today. I’m not interested in the current full size f150.

  • Dustin Ables

    If Ford will bring this one to the states, I WILL buy it!!! I hope to see it here soon….

  • John

    I have always owned a ford. Last one was a 1993 ranger stx. Looked at getting a new ranger in early 2011. Was told no more ranger in the usa. I wanted a 4 door. Oh, they tried to sell me one off the lot.No way was i getting something they were phasing out. I purchased a toyota tacoma. Ford was a good company at one time.Only thing I can positive about them is they didnt take a goverment bailout like the othercar companies. Maybe ford will come to their senses and brind the global diesal back to the USA. American company and the American People cant even get one!!!!!

  • http://www.bemotors.net Chad Bahrs

    If ford brought a Diesel Ranger to the USA I would DEFINATELY buy one for My company and one for personal use also. While your at it… why not offer the New Trans-Connect mini van with a Diesel?

    I own a Excursion, Mercedes, and VW – Yes ALL of them ARE DIESEL !

  • Rossco

    I currently drive a 2011 Ranger with the 2.3 4cyl engine and it is a dog. but i get the fuel economy i was looking for I would absolutely love a bigger ranger with better fuel economy and i bet that those trucks have some balls at least. My current truck has to downshift every time i press on the gas, I should have gotten the 6 cyl but my wallet won the battle. Please Please ford bring this truck to the states if you want me to be green ill run Biodiesel.

  • Jen

    Brimg this truck here. I hadvavTacoma but the gas was horrible. I’d love a new truck but one with torque and fuel efficiency

  • wendigo

    On top of bringing the diesel global ranger to the states…ford should offer a limited number of “stars and stripes” editions to be spread throughout the country’s ford dealers. To get the marketing ball rolling and to start a collector series.
    I’ll take mine in red with red interior,4wd, reg. cab, just like the ’85 I had for 16 yrs.,-Delilah was her name.
    -Wendigo

  • truck lover

    Bring us that TRUCK!

  • Duane Hart

    Hey Ford are you reading this offer this truck here I will buy one.
    You would not have needed to shut down the Ranger Plant.
    Ford did not have a better idea on this one. Yes Global Ranger!!!!!!
    Bring it to America, you guys in charge are just a few fries short of a happy meal.

  • Alpo

    America….. greatest country in the world, we should have the greatest truck as well. i been looking how to get this to the U.S. through mexico, but there is just too much loops I would have to jump through.
    Please bring this truck here, i would buy one the instant its at the dealership.

  • JCamp

    bring it to america!

  • GDAV

    Bring this truck to the US! Ford you are an American company, why deny the American people of such an awesome product? If this truck was available I would buy one for me and one for my wife.

    Ford has stated this vehicle would not do well in the US market; sounds a lot like GM when they killed the EV1. There are few things in life we can count on, death, taxes, and the cost of oil/gas going up. Electrics have a long way to go in the truck market. I have to wonder if there are individuals/organizations outside of Ford that don’t want to see this truck in the hands of the US consumer. Recently I read that Ford is looking to get out of the compact truck market all together as the Ranger has not been doing well in the US. If Ford had used the same effort they have on the F150 over the years I am sure the Ranger would be outselling the Tacoma. Even outside of the diesel engine, why didn’t the US Ranger get the same facelift the global ranger has? It’s a nice looking truck, makes you wonder if Ford wanted the ranger to fade out in the US.

  • L K Donaldson

    Screw Ford ! My F-150 gets 14mpg. Never again !
    I will replace it in a heartbeat with a small diesel pickup;
    I don’t care if it’s Japanese, Korean, Indian, or German.
    It is very obvious the big 3 don’t give a shit about Americans !!

  • Ram

    Hey, I would buy Ford Ranger in a heartbeat if it came with a Diesel engine. So what are waiting for Ford Corp. and rigth now I’m in the market to buy a truck.

  • William Holder

    YES PLEASE WAITING WITH MONEY IN HAND! DIESEL 4X4 SINGLE CAB SHORT BED.

  • wayne hensley

    FORD it would bring jobs and revenue to USA and jobs where you were born,please offer these RANGERS to us!!!

  • Rolf Rimott

    I would buy in a second, I am moving to brazil to retire and will buy one there to use in Brazil, I currently drive a VW diesel Wagon and will never own a gas burning vehicle again. Bring it to the USA and I will buy one.

  • kevin

    I would buy one today if it were available !

  • kenneth

    I own a business and would buy 10 if they did sell a diesel ranger or f-150.

  • Bill

    Bring it in!!! Enough of the Belch Fire, gas powerd MONSTERS!!! I would buy one In a heartbeat!!

  • sean

    Hell yes! I want THAT!

  • Michael Gates

    Youve got my signature.

  • Jon Lawrence

    Yes pleaseeeeeeeeee I love my ranger would love it even more if it was 4×4 and diesel!!!!!

  • remekie

    i’ve been dreaming of this truck,ford please make this a reality

  • Ron

    I owned one of the first models on the 1980s. The power-train was great – mileage was fantastic – unfortunately they built a truck that could go forever but put a body on it that was very susceptible to the corrosive salt used on the northeast roads. Would really like to try another one. If Ford brings this car to the U.S. – you will see customer lines similar to Apple I Phone fanatics at their dealerships.

  • Paul

    I would buy a deisel Ranger today.

  • Colin Paulsen

    I have a ’94 Ranger 2wd with the 3.0L V-6. had it for 7 years. the size of the truck is perfect for my needs, but i would love to swap the motor for Cummins 4bt. That said, its just not practical for me to undertake such an operation. If Ford made these new diesel rangers available in Canada, I’d buy it. FORD! Stop telling us what we want. Start listening. I want a diesel ranger!!!

  • Darryl Pierce

    A diesel Ranger would sell, even though the cost would be more, but the payoff of milage and resale value would counter that, if it was done right. I own a 1984 diesel Ranger and they were good but lacked power for modern highway opperation (the national speed limit was 55 then). Later versions (85-86) had the turbo diesel and I think reliablity was what doomed it. Hopefully Ford will offer one in the near future!!

  • justin noxid

    i love diesels. ford, dodge, chevy, theyre all great. i like the ford superduty trucks. and my wife doesnt really like driving bigger trucks and it would be nice to buy a ranger or small diesel without having to build one YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!! TAKE THE HINT!! BRING EM TO THE USA!! trust me. yall bring em. we’ll buy em

  • Logan Planchard

    I agree with you man. The more I read about this the more I want that truck. I wish Ford would just make the decision to sell it in America b/c they will make so much more money and defiantly help the economy.

  • Logan Planchard

    I agree with you man. The more I read about this the more I want that truck. I wish Ford would just make the decision to sell it in America b/c they will make so much more money and defiantly help the economy. I kind of consider myself a gear head I just wish I had the time and resources to be one.

  • Kendall from NH

    FORD – PLEASE bring this drive train/truck combo to North America. I have a diesel f250 now, love it, but would love the mpg from a small diesel better.

  • Charlotte

    I would totally buy one!

  • Will Meredith

    Ford. Wake up and bring the diesel ranger to Canada.

  • brett

    I would buy this car. I have an F150, and I love it, but I’m looking to downsize. This is perfect. They already built it, why not just start selling it here. The US version is terrible. It’s not a mystery where they’re not selling small trucks here. Look at the number of comments on this message board alone.

  • D Swain

    The only truck I really want. It’s either this or I’ll settle for an old toyota tacoma.

  • Jesse Wooten

    I am in complete agreement. It seems silly to me that we don’t have access to small diesel trucks/cars/etc. EVERYONE in Europe has them, why? Because gas is expensive. I don’t know for sure, but I suspect the oil conglomerate’s lobbyists have something to do with this.

  • Joe

    With gas predicting to be over $4.00 this summer, why wouldn’t they bring that vehicle here? Are they’re memories that short, or they just that stupid? I love trucks, but with gas prices going up and the fuel economy of today’s truck mediocre at best, my next new vehicle may need to be a fuel efficient car. I drive about 30000 miles a year. It’s not to hard to do that math. I seen where cummins was working with Nissan on a small diesel for the Titan.

  • derek

    I live 50 miles from mexico. if California would let me register it I’d fly down to Guatemala and drive one back.

  • Brian Hyodo

    Ford has proven that the small truck option is viable in NA with their introduction of the Ford Transit Connect van. They charge more for it than entry and mid-level F150′s.This truck is seen everywhere in cities now. No surprise – the rest of the world has countless small vans to pick from and we have one. That Transit also does not have a diesel engine here in NA and while it can handle heavy loads it is clearly underpowered with the old Focus 2.0 gas engine with about 140 HP and similar ft-lbs of torque. It needs a small 150HP diesel with 250-300 ft-lbs of torque and 40-50 MPG.
    The annoying thing is that Ford has this technology already but prefers to sit on the ancient pickup truck culture of NA because they can currently make more money doing that. More of the ‘if it aint broke’ mindset that sees GM with the same engine block technology that they developed in the mid-fifties and leaves them still boasting of pushrods. BMW built 1.5 litre inline 4 cylinder gas engines for F1 racing in the 1980/s that delivered 1300 HP. The new F1 inline 4 engines coming out will not be as potent but will likely be more reliable as they will not be as stressed and can take advantage of another 30 years of development. But here we sit with trucks too big for our cities that come with OLD, OLD technology – waiting for the Koreans and Japanes to lead the way – again. Come on Ford – you are on a roll with your Focus and Fiesta. Why not do the same thing in the truck world! – and while you’re at it give us 100 MPG for the same Fiesta with a new CDI diesel!! Can you imagine if they produced a small pickup the size of the original F-100′s with retro f-100 styling,modern technology and packaging. They could call it the NA Ranger or better yet – The F-100 Eff’y.

  • willey

    screw ford they are a global company they dont care about the U.S.A.

    VERY MUCH THIS. I have a 1983 Dodge Ram 50 diesel that I would love to replace, but can’t. Fix this!

  • Andy Cano

    I would buy the ford Ranger diesel immediately if it was offered. I drove my 1994 2.3 manual XLT ranger for 213k miles! It was a great truck, I only had to sell it because my kids got older and didn’t fit. My dakota get 22mpg if I nurse it. My Ranger got 28mpg! Please sell it in this country. I will buy it.

  • CB Sandberg

    I would buy it in a heartbeat. I need a new truck–a small, efficient, Ford diesel truck!

  • http://none Tyler Gray

    im only 15 but i allready love the rangers. i live on the back roads of northern michigan. i drive it to trapp hunt and fish it gets 30 mpg i love it bring a deisle ranger to the market and it will blow up the market

  • Darin

    I have been saying for a couple years now that this is exactly what I wanted to buy for my next small fuel efficient truck. I read in a blog on another website, a poster had actually seen one of these with duelly wheels and a small flatbed on the rear in S. America. Total ranger envy on my part!

  • Matt

    My Dad drove a diesel Isuzu P’up when I was little, and now that I’m thinking about buying a small truck I just found out that there are litteraly NO diesel options. I don’t want a V-6, just a little diesel that I can use to haul yardwaste, help neighbors move, and bring home my Ikea purchases

    • http://importantmedia.org/members/joborras/ Jo Borras

      There ARE CNG options, with a few alterations.

  • James G

    I agree

  • James G

    I agree 100%

  • wizalkat

    this id the vehicle ford needs to sell here!. I hate the f-150, and the old ranger needed to be discontinued, it was obsolete ten years ago. if ford sold this i would trade in my subaru baja. (maybe not, I’d probably just park in the back yard). economy and utility in one package? what a concept ford! let North America in on this!

  • B Scott Eggers

    Why not contact them and tell them directly.

  • Alex Maney

    As a diesel mechanic I love the idea of the 3.2 ranger. If I had the option I would buy one today!!!!

  • garrett goodman

    I would buy one the day they’re made available.

  • Jeff

    I’ll buy one this year if it becomes available in the US.

  • Dan

    Nope, the E.P.A. does not like diesel. Real dirty stuff compared to regular unleaded.
    Or maybe it’s the politicians behind the E.P.A. that don’t like diesel, that tie the hands
    of the auto makers? The rest of the world advances forward while we go back to our
    caves.

  • Walter

    I would love to buy one right now but instead I might build one..

    • Terry

      could you build one for me while you’re at it?

  • mike

    bring it here!

  • Bruce

    I know that big corporations don’t really care what their customers want, but even as an import that would not sell a bunch of units, if they sell all they bring how could it be the wrong thing to do. Also, make sure there is a diesel option, PLEEEEEEEAAAASSE

  • Darwin Anderson

    My 2008 Ranger 2.3L, 5 spd is a good little truck despite its being old technology. Something just a bit bigger with a small and efficient (already proven elsewhere) diesel engine would be great and I would buy one for certain.

  • lyle jones

    Just found out abour the ranger. Nothing new.ford focus europe 60mpg.Yes I want a five cyl.ranger diesel. I guess I will just keep my 2005 Passat 2000 jetta and 2005 4door deesel dodge .Forget Ford

  • Trevor P.

    PLEASE PLEASE!!!!! give us our ranger diesel.

  • nicholas

    I would love to have one of these trucks as well, I already have their eco boost and its great but I would much perfer a diesel. Id buy them the rest of my life. What a wonderful hybrid truck it would be. I just want a small work horse TRUCK with a long bed and some balls, and decent fuel economy (better than 20mpg)

    I love Fords I have owned more Fords than any other vehicle. This marketing bull shit is stupid, stop trying to make half tons smaller and just make a decent LUV.

  • http://www.musconetcong.org Bill Leavens

    Took Mr. Eggers advice and dropped a note to Ford Corporate.
    http://corporate.ford.com/our-company/contact-ford

    Gentlemen,
    There is a tremendous market opportunity for Ford that has been
    ignored for too long a time.

    Regular Americans will buy a small diesel truck. Small trucks
    are all about utility and efficiency. So are diesels. Ford has
    more than enough experience with diesels in the rest of the
    ‘world to build an engine that works for the US market. Yes,
    EPA regulations will be difficult to meet. Other companies
    are meeting them. The technology exists to satisfy Tier 2
    Bin 3 regulations. Moreover, Ford knows how to build good
    strong small trucks. The last Ranger endured for decades
    with only incremental changes.

    So build it light. Build it economical. Build it strong. Build
    it fun to drive. You will own the largest part of the small truck
    market that has been abandoned by Detroit.

    I would very much appreciate the courtesy of a response.

    Bill Leavens

  • Randy Stovall

    yes, a diesal Ranger, PLEASE!!! I’ve been looking at them on the web for years.

    Thanks, Mea. I think you guys are making a big mistake by
    ignoring the small truck and diesel markets. If Chevrolet,
    Nissan, Toyota or any other experienced small truck
    manufacturer wakes up and acknowledges the demand,
    Ford loses. This really makes too much sense to let
    somebody else have all the market share. And you are
    already building that truck in the world market. The only
    engineering input it meeting the emissions. And that isn’t
    im,possible as BMW, VW, Mercedes and others have
    shown.

  • Benny Kuhl

    Hell yea we want the diesel ranger!!!! I drive a 2000 explorer 5.0 v8 gas hog and a VW Jetta TDI….. i love my explorer but i drive my TDI every day……whats that tell ya….I WANT A DIESEL RANGER AND I WANT ONE NOW!!!!!!!! This is america land of the free, give us the RANGER!!!

  • Shane Jackson

    Diesel + 6-speed man.+ 4×4 = perfect :)

  • Chandler.colorado

    I won’t buy another ford until the diesel ranger arrives in the US

  • chris

    I just took my 2011 Ranger xtra cab 4×4, 4 litre on its maiden voyage,7000 K m, on the truck, towing a 2700 pound trailer. I got 11.9 mpg and that’s an Imperial gallon. That’s roughly 9.5 miles per US gallon. Meanwhile my buddy pulled an 18 ft, 3500 pound trailer from BC to California and back averaging 11.6 miles per US gallon with a full size Silverado crew cab 4×4. What in the world is the matter with Ford? Their arguments are ridiculous as to why they wouldn’t bring the new Ranger here. My wife wouldn’t drive an F150, too big. But she’d sure drive that New Ranger. Smarten up Ford ! !

  • Joseph Raymond

    I agree that we need the New Ranger here. I don’t care if Ford wants to call it the F100, New Ranger or mini F150, but we need it here and soon. The F150 is too big for my needs and I don’t want a car or small SUV. Looks like I’ll just have to hold on to my 2000 Ranger for as long as possible and hopefully when I decide to get a newer vehicle someone will have a nice small pickup available. If Ford won’t do it, maybe Kia, Hyundai or someone else will. As much as I love to buy American, I’m not going to spend that kind of coin on an F150 I don’t need or want.

  • lee miller

    I am a certified Ford service tech and have been working for a ford dealership for over 15 yrs. This is the first Ford diesel I would even consider buying. I have owned fords all my life [46 yrs] and to say I would buy a diesel is a strech for me considering I hate working on the big diesel trucks we sell now. Ford is making a big mistake not offering this here in the states.

  • Rick Salve’

    I agree the F-150 is to big a truck. I have a 2004 ford ranger 4×4 with a 4.0L, auto , I wish it had better M.P.G., but this truck size is perfect for my home projects and maneuvering around the suburbs. I think the New Ranger with a Diesel automatic in a crew cab 4×4 would be perfect. Ford if you offer this truck here, I will buy it. P.S. , please manufacture this truck here in the U.S. A.

  • lonny

    Get the Ranger here I will buy one the first week. Put a diesel in the F150 too!!!!!
    Come on Ford get with it, ten years ago nobody could build a car that would get 30-40 MPG now they all have 3 or 4 of them. We NEED this truck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Rob

    I would buy one, along with my dad and 2 brothers!! Sell them in the USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Josh

    I would buy this truck in a heartbeat! Ford, please bring the new Ranger to Canada.

  • Brandon

    I would buy the diesel Ranger for sure.

  • Greig

    I absolutely Love Diesel engines! I started looking at the big diesel trucks and decided to go with my first instinct, a smaller diesel engine! A diesel Sprinter is now my best option. I wish we had more options! Land of the free? It’s only common sense that we need to be more conservative with our oil and our money!

    I am a US service member deployed in Asia and I drive a govt owned diesel double cab ranger on the daily here. I would buy one in a heartbeat if Ford offered it in the States. Its just the 2.2l TDi 4×4 hi-rider style. It runs and looks great and the fuel economy is remarkable. As a former 4.0l ranger owner, I prefer the smaller diesel power plant in every way. The double cab interior (even the basic model I drive) is perfectly sized and comfortable. Its a rugged little truck and it’s perfect for my needs here and back home. Come on Ford, let’s have it!

  • Gabriel

    Bring back the ford ranger

  • Terry Beckelheimer

    Yes please! I wrote Ford a letter last week, the response was so canned and matter of fact (we don’t care what you think). Ford, wake up. America is speaking to you, pay attention or close your doors.

  • Patrick

    I’d buy a small block diesel in a heartbeat. I would literally put my old Porsche up for sale and go buy one. Please do it FORD.

  • adam

    do it!!!!!!! i want that truck!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jesse

    I will either buy it from Ford, or from Nissan / Izuzu / Toyota, once they offer it. Would rather buy from Ford.

  • http://petesalitore.com Pete Salitore

    I have travelled to the Middle East, Europe and Central and South America and love the 4 wd toyota diesel trucks. I am a Toyota guy, but if Ford brought that truck over here I would probably buy one. It is ridiculous that each company doesn’t have a diesel mid size pickup option. They could all do it and make a killing.
    Who wouldn’t want a 4 wd truck that gets good mpg, can tow and lasts a long time. The first one to do it will make the most money on it and then watch all the car brands will jump on board. Look at the TDI’s, and how well they sell and the VW is an inferior vehicle.
    I have considered taking my 4runner to TX to that Diesel conversion place down there. Takes 8 months to a year to get in. Does that tell you anything on the need.
    Thanks for taking up the cause.

  • Eddy Hadden

    Not just America, but canada too!!!

    I bought a 2011 ranger with the 4 litre, 4×4. Its a meh kind of truck. sure it gets the job done but it isnt what i want, id really love to see the international ranger come to canada.

    Bring this truck to the americas!!!

  • david

    Screw the gov regulations!! ford should want to sell this as much as we want to buy it. this could be the next big thing for ford!!!!!

  • Rob

    I want a diesel Ford Ranger!

  • Chuck Agle

    My wife has a manual transmission Mustang GT convertible. I have a manual transmission 2002 SportTrac. If Ford wants us to buy more Fords then they are going to have to build diesel manual transmission vehicles. I am hoping that Mazda decides to sell their BT50 (their Ranger clone) in the US with a SkyActive diesel and a six speed manual.

    I am tired of the American manufacturers selling us gasoline powered pigs. If you have ever driven a diesel truck towing you would never go back to a gas engine. On our farm we routinely tow 16,000 lb. loads of fruit (sour cherries). A diesel F-350 or a Dodge Cummins does the job smoothly and with good economy.

    Most of us every day do not need trucks that big. A truck that will haul one ton with a towing capacity of 6-8000 pounds is plenty. So… my next truck will be from whoever in the American market introduces the first diesel manual F-150 killer. Hopefully it will be Ford because those are what I am use to working on but . . . . They need to realize that if someone else starts to market a high mileage reliable pickup with a diesel and a selection of manual and automatic transmission then whoever that is could become the number one seller within a few years.

    • http://www.musconetcong.org Bill Leavens

      Well said. I just sent an email off to Mazda’s site asking them to provide a dieset BT50 to the US market. Ford has been doing their very best to discourage any thought in that direction. Mazda is hurting financially and generally does well in niche markets so they might be a logical company to make the first offer. Just looking at this forum, the market has to be huge. How many folks have a clue this petition exists? Personally I don’t care if it’s a diesel Nissan Frontier, Chebby Colorado, Toyota Tacoma, Suzuki Equator, Holden Ute, Volkswagen Amarok, GMC Canyon, Mitsubishi Raider, Dodge Dakota, Isuzu P’up, whatever. First one to hit the market will have a field day. Tier 2, bin 3 gubamint regulations be damned.

  • Terry Beckelheimer

    I learned today that VW even has a TDI pick up truck in foreign markets.

  • Terry

    Lately I’ve been looking to buy a small pickup and am EXTREMELY disappointed with the choices- the very few choices that there are. They all have poor fuel effeciency and are too big for my needs. I would buy the diesel Ranger in a heartbeat. Ford needs to bring them to the U.S. immediately!!!

  • Doug

    i want this truck….. DO YOU HEAR ME FORD? I don’t want your crappy F-150 I want this with a diesel.

  • Andy

    Hi,
    They not only offered a Ranger in a Diesel engine, but a Escort at that time…why not add a Taurus or now probably the Focus in a Diesel engine option…growing up we had two Ford escorts w/ diesel engines and a ranger with a diesel…I still own the Ranger and it has a five speed stick and I have checked the mileage several times…they are was under what this thing gets…avg 56 miles per gallon and that was built in 1985 w/ the turbo diesel…come on Ford, we hate gas stations and you can build a diesel engine that works…you did it before and the American pocket book would like it back…

  • Ron Farrell

    I an one of many that I work with that want a small Ranger or Tacoma size truck for work. Not to tow with, but to cary tools and supplies and get good diesel type mileage.
    I am amazed that Ford dosen’t sell their truck in the U.S. I am surprised that not much has been done to raise the M.P.G. of this small truck class. I would get a good mileage diesel truck if it was available.

  • Herman Baver

    I wasn’t finisher with my comment.
    yes I would but a small diesel ford pickup truck.It would have many uses for me.
    I road in a ford car in Italy with a diesel engine and you could not hear the engine running.
    It also had all the features of a mercedes and lot less money.

  • David

    This new Ranger should be offered in North America . If Ford does not make this happen soon , then I may be forced to buy something else ! Are you listening Ford ? Your new engines , eco boost , are an improvement , but 20 % is nothing to get that excited about when the fuel prices are what they are nowadays .

  • joe briones

    I want one as well and with 4wd. I live in south Texas and I’m having family help me find one across the border that I can bring back.

    • http://facebook.com/drumminglizards Koen Stokes

      What part of S. Tx?
      I’m in San Antonio, looking to get one for myself.

  • Nick Turner

    I’m a long time ford buyer and I would to see this truck here. I think it’s what we as Americans need. It won’t kill the f150 market, ok ford.

  • Jeremiah

    Yeah, i’m about to enter the job market after highschool and i currently drive a sport trac. In a voice echoed by many in my school the new ford ranger is what we want. Even the vw beetle is getting cooler. The new ford ranger’s sporty look is something missing in the ford line up. I think the f 150s are great, and they’re f’ing awesome for any WORK that you need them for, but i want a car to just drive around and go offroading in. The F150 just don’t fit that bill. ALSO the Fseries is PRICEY. AND they don’t offer a diesel standard.

  • Andy

    We in the building and construction industry need an American made vehicle that gets phenomenal gas mileage. Not offering the ranger deisel in America is well, unamerican.

  • http://gmail tim

    hey you guys at ford motor company WAKE UP!!!!! the diesel market is alive,VERY ALIVE !!!!!! Diesel is a green fuel you want everyone to go green . Diesel has fewer hydrocarbons so, WAKE UP GIVE AMERICA THAT RANGER TRUCK!!!! immediateley THANK YOU!!!!!!

  • Anthony

    Im in too. Bring this truck to the USA, you have lost a lot of sales b/c this truck is not sold here. My family has started buying Nissan Frontiers.

  • Al

    Just about every foreign truck maker has a diesel option for other than
    U.S. markets, if they bring one in first, they’ll get my money. In the mean time
    I’m not buying a full size pickup truck from anyone when they all get such
    lousy gas mileage.

  • matt

    I think a diesel ranger would be awesome. I would buy one.

  • Rich

    I want a small 4 cylinder diesel truck that fits in my gargage with better gas milage than new trucks currently for sale in the US. A crew cab and 4WD would be nice. Please give us the global ranger.

  • Joe

    $4.00 gas. A truck that will move a house and get 28 MPG! And you don’t think the american public would want this? No wonder Detroit always had a hard time with catching up wit the rest of the world. Please import this truck. What do you have to lose?

  • Bryan

    I drive a 4×4 Ranger with a diesel for work here in Australia and love everything about it. I plan to move back home to America in a few years and hope to see this truck for sale when I get there. I would buy it immediately the second I got home. I also think it telling that this post was made 14 months ago and people are still posting messages in it.

  • Chris

    I saw these amazing pickups being handed out to the Afghan soldiers by the dozen. The Afghan abuse, and I mean abuse, the crap out of everything they get their hands on. These trucks serve as their primary tactical vehicles and take every type of punishment thrown their way. I looked into getting my hands on one while there, but had to settle for just diggin’ around the compound in a loaner. I’m trying to get one imported if I have to. Wonderful all around utility truck.

  • B. Juneau

    If Ford doesnt bring this truck here I will have no choice other than to buy a toyota tacoma to get what I am looking for. Having the diesel option in a small truck platform will blow away all competition. I have been a Ford man my entire life, loyal to the bone. Give us what we want! Must have the option for a manual transmission…

    I have been looking for a small truck with a diesel eng( preferably one like old perkin eng ) for over 7 years I looked into the old 83-85 trucks but found you couldnt get parts for the eng.

    Ford needs to step up and give us the option of buying this truck!!!!!

  • Randy

    I’ve been looking for the economy that i get with my VW TDI in a truck version for years. I would buy one in a minute

  • nate scott

    I’d buy one

  • Steve

    I would buy a new diesel Ranger. I want a truck to use as a daily commuter and weekend warrior for projects and recreation. The closest thing that would work now is the Toyota Tacoma, and I actually like the look of the global Ranger better, as well as the diesel engine. I’ve seen pictures of the new Chevy Colorado coming in a few years, and I don’t like it nearly as much as the global Ranger. And if Ford thinks I will consider buying an F-150 – even with EcoBoost – they are dead wrong! I’ll go with a smaller truck from another maker. I don’t want a full size truck for daily commuting!

  • Folly

    you had me at diesel bot sold me at quad cab

  • Lee johnson

    Ok this should be as simple as this, who built Ford? We did! The American consumer over the years have supported Ford in someway or another.

    I know most of us has owned a Ford Pick up truck I have personally owned 4. A 1964 Ford w a straight six, 1989 F-150 & the (Supreme)1995 Ford Ranger. A 1999 Lariat.

    It has been a plum-pleasen-pleasure for me to own & Drive these trucks, If I could purchase a truck right now today, it would be the Ranger Diesel hands down for one obvious reason I love Ford Trucks.

    But the Ranger has a special place for me, On a curvey wet & windy road my wife slid of the road hit a tree went down over an embankment, into the creek bed and luckly she was fine, the truck got a new dent on the rear fenderwell. Ford Ranger!

    I got my Ranger stuck in a creek I was four wheeling wits a 2 wheel drive truck lol, the back of the truck was barried under 3 1/2 feet of water & some of the front was submerged, I left it running for an hour or so walk back home got the Bronco and pulled it out,

    A timming belt @ 170k & a clutch @ 180k. It ran & ran & its got over 225,000 miles.

    Is this about a truck that you can believe in with confidence? Absolutely!

    Is it tough & versatile? Yes!

    I hauled 1300-1600 pounds of scrap metal on a trailer and in the bed of the Ranger XLT SUPER CAB 4 Cylinder week after week, thats correct! & fourwheelers and dirtbikes every weekend.

    We already know how tough they are, or we wouldn’t want the Ranger Diesel

    Everyone I talk to wants a Ford-Ranger Diesel, did I mention if it wasn’t for us loving and being loyal to the Ford Ranger it could have faded a longtime ago, a Ford Ranger Truck!

    We have done many & plenty for you oh Ford over the years, but this has been because you make an Awesome Truck.

    Please bring The Ford Ranger Diesel back to the US. Where it got its humble beginning. We love you oh Ford Ranger & need you more than ever! Amen Post written by L Johnson

  • http://www.musconetcong.org Bill Leavens

    Sure would be a good thing if all these comments were getting to Ford somehow. Sure would be a great thing if they were being read. And it would be wonderful if they actually acted on it and brought the diesel Ranger to the US market. So my question is, ARE THESE COMMENTS GETTING TO FORD?

    • http://importantmedia.org/members/joborras/ Jo Borras

      Ford is aware of them … but I think we need more than 700-odd comments. If we had 700-odd ORDERS, that might be different.

      • http://www.musconetcong.org Bill Leavens

        Jo, this is a very tiny sample of a huge market. Who even knows this petition is out there? If you want to find this petition, you have to know it exists. How many folks are going to stumble in here by accident? And I believe that these 700 odd comments mean about 70,000 orders if you figure that 1 % of the people who might be interested land on this site. That ain’t chicken feed. Or let Chebby do it with the new Colorado.

  • chris

    I definitely agree! I have thought about this for years. I loved my ford ranger but was getting 17 MPG with the 4.0. I could be driving an f150 and have almost the same mpg. But if the ranger came with a 4cyl diesel it would be the ultimate truck. Why does everyone else in the world get all the good cars! I just found out subaru makes a forester with a diesel that gets 40 + mpg.

  • Ed

    Put my order in today!!!

  • Jim

    I have been driving Ford Ranger’s for 24 years now. My current ride is a 1996 4×4 Extended Cab which I bought new and has about 200K, still going strong. I would have upgrade to a new Ranger if they sold one with a diesel. I like my smaller Ranger with decent gas mileage. If I need a full size truck I use my Dodge 2500 Cummins Diesel. I much prefer for everyday use the smaller Ranger. I guess I’ll have to purchase another brand now. Ford just lost another loyal repeat customer for the Ranger and no I won’t buy a F150, even if they had a small diesel. I want a smaller truck and I need a pickup.

  • Nathan

    “Global ranger” everywhere else but here. Ford bring it home!! I don’t want an f150. Bring the ranger home

  • Kevin

    I have a 2000 Ranger supercab that I would like to replace and the Global Ranger is exactly what I have been holding out for. The 4-door with an I-5 engine is perfect! Ford… I will not buy an oversized F150. It fits many peoples needs, but not mine. I want to adequately seat 4 people, haul things home from Lowes, light towing and get great mpg. Please get this to the US before I have to settle for a Tacoma that is the right size, but does not have the mpg.

  • T Whited

    I will never buy A big gas guzzling F 150 no way !!!!

  • will

    This sounds great we need more options Ford just make sure it gets 30+ mpg and they will sell like crazy.

    I will buy 50 for my business.

  • eric

    i dont know why this hasent been done long ago! if they ever come out with one i would by one instantly.

  • Jean-Baptiste Coupet

    I have been waiting to have a Ford diesel truck but unable to do so because of their size and price. The F-250 Diesel is considered too big and the F-150 does not fit with a diesel engine therefore the best fit would be a Ranger Diesel and believe it or not, I am not the only one in my family looking forward to own a Ranger Diesel. Ford management and marketing need to consider having this truck in the US. It will be a hot item provided that it is reliable. Ford, Please get the diesel Ranger here in the U.S. Cannot wait any longer to have one.

  • alvis adames

    Since 2002 I have only diesel car in my garage. With a VW Jetta TDI and Dodge Cummins 3500 I’ll never would back to gas engine. More miles per gallon, easy fixing mechanical problems and pumping biodiesel to cut our dependence of middle east oil, I just can recommend bring diesel to usa

  • Robb Loman

    I really want to see the Ranger back in the US and for Ford to pull their head out of there ass. The original concept of the Ranger was to provide a practical, economical truck for those of use needing a truck but not the full 150. I don’t want a truck that doesn’t fit in my garage. Chances are I’ll be trading in my Sport Trac for some import small/ mid-size truck because Ford keeps playing these games.

  • Jason

    While deployed to Afghanistan we got a Diesel Ranger to use on the FOB. We loved it and everyone kept saying “Why don’t they sell this thing back home? I’d buy it!”

    Why does ford need a petition with millions of signatures to sell a Diesel Ranger in America? I thought they were in the business to make money.

    • http://www.musconetcong.org Bill Leavens

      Perhaps Ford has figured out that the diesel Ranger will be an F-150 killer. But if Chebby figures out that a diesel Colorado will be an F-150 killer, too, something might happen. Still holding on to my ’99 Frontier with 300,000 miles in the hopes that SOMEBODY makes a little turbodiesel pickemup. Fortunately, the Frontier is probably good for another 300,000…

  • http://VocalVirgo.com VocalVirgo

    I have a diesel car. I’ll never buy another gasser after having owned this car. But I’d love to trade up to a small/medium diesel pickup. There has been talk of a Yamaha-derived V6 Diesel for the F-150 for years. But I don’t think either of these trucks will grace our shores. F*ck it, I’ll just tow my motorcycle with my car if I can’t get a bed. Ford: I’d be your b*tch if you bring the diesel over.

  • Tom Baker

    We NEED one of these!

  • Matt Dobler

    Ford, please bring the Diesel ranger to the U.S. Someone from a ford dealership called me asking if I wanted to trade up to a new F-150. i said no thank you. If they called asking me to trade up to a new diesel ranger, the answer would most definitely have been yes.

  • Peter Avram

    I’d sell my VW TDI for one of these in a heartbeat. C’mon Ford.

  • GEORGE W.

    Please!!!!!!!! My 98 ranger is @ 300,000 and I love this vehicle, but she’s getting tired. i bought a ’85 mercedes-benz 300 Diesel. i never thought i’d buy a foreign car, but benz is getting 32 mpg and it’s 27 years old. My money will go to the first AMERICAN car company that wakes up and brings a small truck w/diesel & 4×4 to all of us that don’t need a oversized truck for day to day life.

  • Andy

    Bring it, I will buy it. Had good experience with Ford vehicles in the past.

  • William

    i think it is so stupid that they haven’t brought a small diesel pick up to the us market by now. so hopefully ford will bring this.

  • jacob

    Rember the kickbacks given to by a hummer?
    Rember the EV1 ?
    I have a diesel boat that gets at least twice the mileage of the same boat with a gas engine but yet they stoped selling it with the diesel only in the usa .the reason is they claim the emissions are too great. Are you kidding me ,were do they think all that extra fuel goes ?? BP spends lots of money on comericals telling us to eat the seafood its safe.belive me I have pulled in dead turtles,birds,fish and I am hundreads of miles away, Some of it is safe ,not all of it!

    I’ve driven Rangers for the last 21 years, Try parking a full size pickup in the lot at wally world lol with the 07 Ranger I currently drive it’s a breeze. that 91 4 banger i had was a real POS heck I only got 247,000 miles out of it. Give me a Ranger that’s got the in-line 5 D and I’ll get my check book out today. So yes FOMOCO get your head un-inserted the 07 I’ve got could stand replacing. Guess my only real concern is what color Tacoma I’ll get atleast it will be assembled in the state and not built in South Africa or some such place.

  • WaltK

    When Ford cut out the earleir diesel Ranger I converted a Toyota Chinook to a Isuzu Diesel engine, no special modern diesel needed I had a truck with a pop up camper which got 37mpg and was driven several times across the country loaded with several of us and all our gear. If only the body of the truck could have lasted as long as the engine.
    Now put that new Ranger diesel drivetrain with it’s capacity into my 2000 Ranger 4×4 supercab and I’ll grab it. Not as keen on the bed sizes I cannot sleep in or so much crew cab, need that 6 foot bed length for more trips across the US. Hauling a pop up camper designed for back country of course.
    I was told ten years ago Ford was about to bring in the diesel Ranger, it’s about time to fish or cut bait.

  • Eusebio

  • http://www.goodoak.com Frank Hassler

    My environmentally minded company needs small, fuel efficient trucks, that can fit in tight work spaces (and our small shop!) and yet get the work done. My father’s F150 is just too big, the high sides on the bed are a PIA to work in and out of. Global Ranger sounds perfect, I’d trade in my Frontier in a heart-beat.

  • http://www.goodoak.com Frank Hassler

    Also, can I buy one in Canada or Mexico and drive it home?

    • Mike

      No. They don’t pass the phony US emission standards. Total BS.

  • claudio

    Trucks should be diesel powered! I’m getting tired of my 2000 ranger. This could convince me to upgrade.

  • Steve

    I had a lot of experience with this little diesel and toyotas Hilux in Afghanistan. They are awesome and we need them in America. Problem is they last forever and the big three doesn’t like that…

  • Allan

    Ford, we need the diesel Ranger ASAP!!!! Get te jimpon the competition this time and be a leader in the mid-size truck market. You leave us to suffer with Tacos, Frontiers, and Canyon.

  • Jack Cartlidge

    Enough with the super duties that are way to big to actually do anything with aside from towing a house. Have you tried to park one at you local grocery store? I would love a smaller capable diesel truck. I do pull a boat and a camper and feel the smaller truck would just make life easier for someone who needs a capable daily driver.

  • Dee

    I.m so tired of traveling overseas and driving the vehicle there that I.d rather be driving here! …for the fuel efficiency..and features. I don’t want a full size pickup…I want a compact diesel pickup! I currently have two vehicles to fill the role of one…a VW Beetle for highway travel and a Jeep Cherokee for off roading and hauling. Why???? Someone step up to the plate already…..PLEASE!

  • Raph

    Apparently there is some sort of conspiracy in the US that keeps affordable diesel utility vehicles out of reach for the average consumer. AWD or 4WD coupled with diesel cant be had for less than 50k and even then don’t yield the mileage return that justifies the premium, save maybe the TDI Toureg (from what some have said on forums).
    I would buy a diesel: Ranger, Amarok, Forester, Alltrac, Tacoma …
    It may be the only vehicle that would get me to step foot in a Ford showroom.
    Is it so inconceivable that someone that has a few kids, dogs, bikes… might want to tow a small(er/ish) camper? Heaven forbid a diesel pickup that didn’t need a 1/4 acre to park? I’m pretty sure people buy midsize pickups for their efficiency, lower cost of operation, and user friendliness; way no not give people more of what they really want.

    • http://importantmedia.org/members/joborras/ Jo Borras

      The problem is that so few people choose small/mid-size trucks that only the most very ancient (read: amortized) tech is worth building – and, as emissions and safety regulations tighten, even those are becoming money pits.

      • http://www.musconetcong.org Bill Leavens

        Yes, Joe. BUT – Ford is already building the thing and marketing it. The rest of the world likes small trucks and there was a time back in the ’70s and ’80′s when Tpyota Hilux, Nissan Hardbodies and Chebby S-10s were all over the place. As they should be now. And how many creaky old tech Rangers has Ford sold? There are a pile of them out there. If Ford doesn’t want to spend the bucks to develop their own Americanized diesel, I am sure that VW would be happy to sell them wholesale. There’s a market and the sooner that Fors begins to realize that, the sooner we’ll se it here. This is all so very frustrating…

  • Bobby Simms

    I want the diesel Ranger. Also Ford could you offer the Ranger in a crew cab like everywhere else. You guys could take over the world with this truck!!!

  • T Skantz

    I believe that Ford is making a big mistake by choosing to not bring the new diesel Ranger to the U.S. If Ford feels it necessary, they could bump up the size of the F-150 to make it clear that the Ranger and F-150 were meant for different markets.

  • Joe

    I would like the opportunity to buy the Ranger with a diesel motor.

  • Greg

    Ford isn’t smart enough to listen. They could have been building versatile small diesel pick ups for years. Car companies generally are too large to use common sense. My Ranger is 9 years old and now they aren’t selling them, I’ll buy another brand instead.

  • thomas martin

    Being a past and current ranger owner I was infuriated that this new ranger was global only and not coming to the united states. When jeep comes out with the gladiator they will dwarf the foreign companies because the standard model comes with the 4 cylinder turbo diesel. I hope this petition brings this ranger to the united states.

  • Bryan

    Have been shopping around for another truck to replace my 95 ranger. Most trucks for sale in canada are way too big, if this were available I would buy it in an instant. Come on Ford, smarten up, lots of people want a smallish truck with four-doors! Please release this in Canada or I’ll have to buy a Nissan Frontier. I love Rangers but not dumb marketing ploys.

    • http://importantmedia.org/members/joborras/ Jo Borras

      This truck is larger than the current Ranger, the GMC/Chevy twins, and the Toyot/Nissans. It’s about the size of the T100 or Dakota.

  • Mike

    If they would just bring the diesel Ranger to the US and market it as the truck with the best fuel economy everyone looking for an economical truck would buy one. That’s the only reason anyone buys a small truck, for fuel economy. The fact is the first company to wake up and release a new light truck that gets 35+ mpg in the US will dominate the market.

  • Burl

    Bring back the Ranger. All your old customers are going to Toyota, Nissan & Chevy

  • rtgreen

    I would buy the global ranger. I’ve been in the market for a truck for the past year. The F150, Chevy Silverado, and Ram 1500 are too large for urban parking. I need something that will hold a small riding mower. It must have 4×4 and tow 5500-6500 lbs.

  • Jason

    Ford, please bring the global Ranger to the US with all the same options as are offered everywhere else in the world. You are making exactly the truck I want, but I can’t buy it. What’s the deal? Sell them here and I’ll be at the dealer looking to buy.

  • Scott Ballard

    I have a 20 year old daughter that would kill for a “girl sized” version of Dad’s F350 Diesel……not every chick wants a chick car…….Diesel Ranger would sell to people that Ford doesn’t currently reach with the F series
    Smart people at Ford didn’t need a bailout like some others ….must be a governmental reason of some kind that Ford and John Deere sell things in the European marketplace that they don’t sell here……would like to know what it is?

  • Stephen Davis

    I have been waiting, but can’t wait much more. I have a 1999 Ford Ranger with almost 300,000 miles. If they don’t make a diesel Ranger for the United States soon then I am going to buy a Golf.

    I would also buy Ford Stock.

    I have also looked at electric cars, but my commute is too long.

    The clock is ticking.

  • Hardy St-Amand

    Been a Ford owner for 35 years. Albeit used Ford owner, Ford owner none the less. One thing that has irritated me for years is the fact that Ford refuses to listen to it’s customers even loyal ones. I find this so wrong. If Ford really no longer wants to listen, not that they ever really did, to their customers then I think I will be switching brands. And of others follow suit then Ford will be eventually go the way of the do do bird. After all, isn’t that what they have done with so many North American jobs? if they offer little to no loyalty to their workers, then why should customers offer any to them? Hopefully someone will listen, but somehow i think out well fall on deaf ears. Unfortunate. But ultimately who knows. one thing that is for sure_ the top don’t loss much sleep y the deal. Anyway hopefully someone reads this and agrees. Maybe then

  • Derrick

    I have a 2001 7.3L F-250, I love my diesel truck! Would love to have a small diesel available for the Ranger and Focus, what the hell is wrong with you guys at Ford? Why not a small (3 cylinder) diesel/electric hybrid?

  • Jason Carpp

    What bothers me is that it’s not just Ford who’s refusing to offer a diesel engine in the US of A for its small trucks, but also General Motors and Chrysler. Not everyone needs or wants a huge Ford F250 or F350, a Dodge D250 or D350, or a Chevrolet or GMC 2500 or 3500. Most of us would be just as happy with a Ford Ranger, a Ford Bronco II, A Chevy S10 or GMC compact truck, or a Dodge Dakota if they were available with a diesel engine. Why they were never offered with diesel engines is beyond my comprehension. That’s stupid, that they offer diesel engines for full-sized truck buyers, but not small truck buyers. Why should we be denied the option of diesel power? I’ve heard it said that only the marketing people make that decision. If that’s the case, then perhaps we should do away with marketing people. All they do is get in the way of we, the customers.

    • Christopher DeMorro

      @ Jason Carpp

      Actually, both GM and Chrysler are bringing diesel engines to their lineup in the next couple of years. GM will begin offering a diesel-powered Chevy Cruze next year, and their new Colorado pickup is also rumored to be packed diesel power.

      As for Chrysler, they’ve already confirmed a 3.0 liter turbodiesel for the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and I’d be shocked if that engine didn’t make its way to the pickup lineup sooner rather than later.

      Ford…Ford just doesn’t think Americans will buy diesels, unless its a big diesel pickup. That’s a shame, doubly so for me as a Ford fan. Maybe they’ll wisen up…or maybe they’ll be proven right. Time will tell.

  • Mark White

    My family are farmers. They work with the Ford diesel trucks, but they have Toyota’s they hunt and play with. We need the diesel Ranger for fuel economy and to pull our toys!

  • Liam robinson

    This article EXACTLY replicates my frustration.
    The only reason ford doesn’t bring the global ranger is because they can make so much money off the F-150. I for one will not be able to afford a truck that gets 15-20MPG for much longer at $1.50/litre. Bring the global ranger to Canada/USA Ford! Or I’m off to buy a Tacoma.
    BTW: I’m never going to buy something with a twin turbo. You blow one, you trash both. Good bye engine+2 turbos. Anyone who drives a vehicle with a twin turbo past it’s warranty is a complete moron in my mind.

    • http://importantmedia.org/members/joborras/ Jo Borras

      Turbos have come a LONG way in the last few years. Most bearing turbos will outlive the engine in that thing (diesel or not).

  • Alex Gonzalez

    Bring that ford ranger now! I have been wanting a truck for the longest but they eat more gas then they can chew and I just can’t afford that guzzler I want a truck I can drive daily and eventually someone will do it why not be the innovator FORD and start the chain getting that lead in America to the consumers who are waiting for this gift to introduce it self! I hope this works cause if not I’m going to have to stick with a car thinking bout vw jetta tdi since its only high torque high mpg vehicle available :-/

  • ryun

  • Tim Nelson

    I hope when the new calorado comes out it sells like hot cakes. I own a sport trac I bought new in 2004. I take good care of my truck, I have to !
    The guys at the ford dealership are always asking if i would like to trade it
    In but for what. I need a truck that can seat 4 and isn’t a pain in city driving. The quad seat F150 is huge. When ford decided to dump the
    Ranger they didn’t get rid of one truck they got rid of two. So put us guys on your pally sheet ford you said the ranger wasn’t selling well yet you claim it sold 50 thousand units in it’s last year. How many sport tracs could have been added to that list, and I just don’t see people making a bee line for the new transit it’s a freaking milk truck. I would happily buy a new quad
    Cab ranger so don’t give me that excuse that ranger owners just want cheap transport. I love small trucks. At any price . It’s not monitory it’s life style.

  • Gas Mileage Fan

    GM is going to start building the newly designed global colorado in the USA (MO). I will buy one of those if ford never brings the global ranger here.

    as a chevy man for the past 35 years, if ford would make this ranger available here in upstate ny, id buy one in a minute

  • xp190

    I had a Ranger, it was the best truck ever as I use it for small projects, it’s history now and after months of looking for a replacement, the best I could do is a monster F-150 which guzzles gas even with the 4.6L.
    I want a small diesel pickup, I thought the new Ranger would be it, then I found out that because I live in Canada, I can’t have it because it would sell better than the flagship F-150, times change, flagships should change also.

    Give me the Diesel Ranger!

  • CJ

    I want it. I still don’t see the justification for not bringing it here. As I understand, It’s sold in every market outside of North America. The one place where pickup trucks have a decent market and we can’t get what is possibly the best small truck made; it just isn’t right.

  • Ranger Bob

    Amen to that! I would pay $30,000 for one. Hell I’d have been happy with the same old Ranger with some modern fuel efficient engines thrown in it.

  • Jeremy

    That is EXACTLY what I want! I love the Ranger, always have. Always just wished it had a little more pulling strength. Please bring the global to the states!

    Hi Ford Motor Co.;
    We were in the market for a small diesel pickup. They trotted out a F-350. That’s about as small as they could go. So we bought a VW Jetta diesel TDI that gets up to 50 MPG. If you don’t make what people want, you won’t make sales!
    Cheers! Stu.

  • Frank Kline

    I own a 99 Ford Ranger and I would love to buy another (new design) Ranger! The F150 is more than I need and I really don’t want to buy GM or foreign unless I absolutely have to….

  • tom

    having been deployed overseas, I am currently stationed on a base that the US has purchased numerous of the small diesel pickups for things. they are great. I have been driving a diesel VW for years and am looking for a replacement. I really want a truck but i can not bring myself to buy what you have described above (the old, small trucks with abysmal gas mileage). i love these trucks over here and i really want to know what the real reason is that they are not available in the states.

    theres also a bunch of small chevy, nissans, toyota’s. small, awesome, 2.2-2.5 liter turbodiesel trucks, like the ranger. but, the fords look the best in my opinion.

  • Tony

    I’ve been wondering for years why we can’t get more diesel vehicles in our country, especially when the same auto manufacturers sell them elsewhere. Adding insult to injury is the fact that some diesel engines are made here and exported to other markets. Ridiculous behavior imho. I have one of those old, inefficient Dodge Dakota pickups from the 90s and would love to buy something like this diesel ranger with 40mpg.

  • Shayne

    I’ve just finished watching all videos and read all the specs on the Australian website and I’m friggin impressed. I’ve always wondered what a diesel ranger would be like after owning a 4.0 in the past. I currently own a ’09 F150 and i absolutely love it, and would love for ford to make a diesel version on that. They are right about it competing with the F series of trucks cause i would TOTALLY buy one of those Rangers but the ranger has always been a excellent option to have. I love the size of my truck and everything that comes along with it, but sometimes i wish i had a diesel. My style of driving, and the things that i do, it would really be much more practical. I really hope that ford considers bringing this truck stateside, i know a ton of people that would more than likely grab one. most of them drive diesel cars but don’t want the pain of a full size diesel truck and this would be prefect. I think ford has really got the right idea with this one. Come on Ford, wake up, bring the new ranger to North America.

    I bought my first Ranger new in 1992. 4.0L manual. Drove it for 14 years, then bought my second in 2006. 2005 4.0L automatic. I would absolutely jump on a 3.2L diesel Ranger if/when Ford brings it here. I’d also love to see a new RWD minivan along the lines of the old Chevy Astro or Ford Aerostar with that 3.2L diesel. Give it a high roof like the Transit or Transit Connect and some passenger comforts so I can haul people or cargo.

    It’s the powerful gas companies. How much would they lose if we had trucks and cars that got that kind of mileage. So pay off the auto companies and have there lobbies do there talking.

    Thanks, I totally agree I have owned 2 Rangers over the past 10 years and sore that It was the only truck I would own. I don’t need or have room for a larger truck like the F150 but could sure use the towing capacity and the clearance, as well as the small turn radius and fuel economy.
    Talk about a way to boost brand loyalty.
    I am going to find a small diesel truck if I have to buy and convert an old ranger or some other brand but would prefer that you just import the truck we need.

    It seems to me it’d be a felony that a diesel powered small truck is available in other countries (Australia, Europe, Africa, etc.), but not here in North America, and in particular, the USA. Who the hell makes such decision? Diesel may not be for everyone, and with the cost of diesel being more than that of gasoline, even more so. But so what? There has to be a niche somewhere for light duty trucks and compact trucks. I’d buy a Toyota Tacoma with a diesel engine if it were sold here. Or perhaps a Nissan Titan with a diesel engine.

    We NEED this vehicle here. There has to be a market out there for a small/midsize pickup truck, with a fuel efficient small/midsize diesel engine. The thing is… ‘Murricans love their trucks. Instead of trying to convince them to downsize into vehicles they’d rather not drive, or using fancy turbochargers to make marginal improvements to huge trucks which are more than most people actually need, a truck such as the global ranger with the right diesel engine, would be the perfect sell in this country. It’s a travesty that Ford doesn’t “import” this truck into their home country.

    i think you should do more research on cars being sold over-seas, since you seem to clearly be good at it, and get a petition like this for more then ford. get 4 petitions for 4 different companies and hit the social media sites. hell, Facebook got a petition for a deathstar with enough signatures for review, im sure you can get one going for fuel efficient cars. i think there is a big problem with american auto-manufacturers not selling fuel efficient cars in the states because oil companies don’t want them to, and hiding behind “what sells” as an excuse. they market fuel efficient cars to other countries because that’s all other countries will buy, but they know we are still a country of asinine vanity, lift kits and SUV’s.

  • jjjjjjjjjjj

    The FACT is the US automakers refuse all sorts of extremely good diesel engine equipped auto’s. It’s completely nut that Ford would not sell the new Ranger here in the USA. This goes along with a diesel VW that gets DOUBLE the fuel economy of the same Passat here. I’ve traveled the world and I’m 100% sure we’d buy if sold here. More likely Ford just wants people to buy more Toyota’s.

  • John Desco

    The only reason ford doesn’t import or manufacture the ford ranger in the US is that it will take market shares away from the “all-American” f150. They aren’t willing to split shares so they slowly kill a very lucrative market. Luckily, I’ve finalized shipping and got my new 2011 Ford ranger registered here in texas. As you can see, the Ford Ranger meets and even exceeds EPA and emissions testing. And with the globalbal market all you have to do is find a foreign dealer and order the car to your specific liking, (options, lhd, xlt, etc).The biggest thing is, that all I did was completely legal. Like I said, ford made this vehicle to meet ALL markets regulations. So it will just take a few year’s and people noting their concern and voila. As for me, ill be hopefully, driving my new ranger July 22, 2013.

  • Glenn

    It was when I went to buy a new one that I found the Ranger was no longer going to offered in the US. This is a GREAT SIZE truck, reliable and economical as a gasoline vehicle!! Why, then, would Ford turn it’s back on a such a huge number of loyal Ranger owners…THEN, to add salt to the wound continue the Ranger as the Global Ranger with a diesel engine!!!!!; Huh?? Don’t get it. Ford turned it’s back on me and I guess their strategy worked because I am now the owner of a Chevy Colorado!! Defiantly not a Ranger, but, it is the right size truck for my needs!!

    I would come back if the diesel Ranger came back…till then hasta la vista, baby!!

    I’m in bring it back

  • Digger

    I’ve had 2 Rangers now in the last 17 years and prefer the Ranger to the F-150 due to the fuel economy of the Ranger vs. the F-150, that and I just do not have the room for that big of a vehicle. And for Ford to think that all Ranger owners would just go buy a bigger truck because it’s Ford is STUPID!!

  • Paula Maricle

    I’d buy one for sure I’ve owned three Rangers and don’t plan on getting rid of the third till they bring back the Danger Ranger

  • builder R

    In 1983 I sat in every small truck being built, including the Volkswagen rabbit with a small diesel. I ended buying a Ford Ranger 2.3 liter four with a manual 4 speed and a trailer towing package. I’m a builder and that Ranger towed dbl axle dump trailer and my 21′ CC with no problem. I put 285 /75 / 15s on it and the only problem was keeping front end alinement.

    Then I had a F-150 with a manual non synchronized 4spd 4×4 with a I6 and fuel injection 2″ body lift and 35″ on 15″ rims. Only made 13 mpg fully loaded or empty.

    I now own a 2001 F-150 extended cab Lariat with a 5.4 a 4sd auto and 4×4. 254,000 + miles and 13.5 mpg .,

    I and my carpenters and laborers and young friends of my 26 yr old all agree with you on the Ranger with good no great MPG.

    I would work sweeping the floors in the plant they make in for stock options if the build it.

    I should be a model U since U fallows model T.

  • kyle brown

    Bring it motherfucker and I will be the first buyer

  • Cheese wheel

    Bring it over!

  • A. Hatch (14-yr Ranger owner)

    Ford, there is a culture of people who strongly prefer mid-size trucks, regardless what you say on your commercials. The reasons for discontinuing the Ranger are most likely complicated and brought on by economic factors. The truth is though that we now have nothing to meet our needs and that is disappointing. We are here, Ford.

  • Walt Fleak

    I too would get one as soon as they come to the US. Is there any way we can get one from over Sea’s and get it here?

  • Marc

    Damn right the “global” Ranger in the US. Ford is American, right? Americans like me want a Ranger or F100, right? My 97 w/4 cyl. 5 spd. lasted me ten years, I got it with 61,xxx miles on it and now currently 251,xxx on it! Don’t need a big truck, and so what if it is only 10% smaller. When Chevy got rid of the S10, I thought, stupid!, When Ford got rid of Mercury, double stupid!! Ranger went bye-bye in ’11, triple stupid!!! And finally, I had zero problems with a 4 cyl. motor being 30 yrs old. If it ain’t broken, don’t “fix” it!

  • Just a guy

    I would love to replace by 2000 Ranger with a new model. Eco Boost Ranger is a no-brainer.

  • WmillerRN

    It’s just like the 65 mpg diesel car they made in Europe right when the Auto industry crashed. They said Americans wouldn’t buy diesel cars. The TDi Jetta was one of the most desired cars @ the time. They said it would cost $150 mil to update the factories in Mexico to make the engines and they were losing BILLIONS. Every Ranger owner loves their truck! The fools that sold theirs want to buy ours. I am going to put a new engine in, and customize mine. I’m rooting for you Ford, and I want to buy the Global Market Ranger! Until then, you’re giving us nothing and I will buy nothing.

  • rob estes

    i would trade my toy ddblcab for a diesel ranger i a heart beat

  • paul

    id buy one

  • APSuess

    I am currently visiting a friend in Australia who only yesterday took delivery of his new Ranger Diesel. Though in the past I would never consider an American-made pickup, this one impressed me so much that I would have no problem changing my long-standing “rule.” This is a beautiful truck. Quiet, comfortable, roomy, with superior handling. What a sin thee are not available in the US. I gladly join the petition to bring this great vehicle to America.

  • Walt

    I’m in and have some money…

  • jrhbronco 2

    Bring it hear its the vehicle every class of person can use and love

  • mike

    I would trade my truck in to get one if it came to the U.S. market

  • Bring Us That Ranger

    I don’t want one of those oversized F-150s or other companies’ too-big, compensation issue full-size trucks. Give me that Ranger! It’s the right size for what I need. Why should the rest of the world get it and we don’t? If the government was ever going to push a vehicle, this should be it instead of those death-box Dodges (I drive one, I know, thanks to the government-sponsored clunkers-for-clunkers exchange program).

  • Mike5234

    This is exactly what I want!

  • derrickito

    i’d buy one of those new easy. shopping for older fords right now specifically for the diesel.

  • cwells421

    Would love to have one. Really want a smaller diesel car.

  • Desertdweller

    This is exactly what we have been looking for and haven’t been able to find. Less than full size pickup with the diesel option for better gas mileage and good emissions – extended cab. We don’t need to tow, but we do want the option for 4-wheel drive. We’ve liked what we’ve seen overseas and are disappointed the options aren’t better in the US.

  • spg144

    Definitely! Currently, (including the 2014 line-up) the only all-wheel-drive diesel available in North America is still the Volkswagen Touareg. If the Ford Ranger (available in 4-door cab) Global AWD Diesel were available in the US and Canada, it would be an overwhelming success for Ford for many years!

  • RockyMtnRanger

    I live in Colorado, and i am sick of all these toyotas! i have a 98 ranger with 240k on it and want to upgrade and the only small truck options out there suck! Ford bring this truck to the states we want and need it

  • Commodore

    Stupid Ford! Just travel to any other country, and you’ll see Rangers and Tacoma carrying and pulling amazing piles of stuff. Not an F150 or bigger to be seen. Get with it! I’m not buying a pickup until I can have as my right 35 mpg!

  • E. Ramsey

    GM and Chevy may have 4 cyl diesel trucks in 2015. If Ford doesn’t get a horse in the race they’re gonna miss out on a huge opportunity.

  • Chris K

    Could have expressed it better myself!

  • Thomas

    This is exactly the type of truck I have been waiting for. After driving a hi lux in Afghanistan I was sold on this type of truck! The problem is I won’t buy one unless it has a blue oval.

  • jeffro0502@hotmail.com

    I’d buy this truck today if it was available.

  • Tom

    Staggering numbers? Probably not unless Ford does a pre-marketing run-up and invites those numbers. Right now fans are doing the heavy lifting. Doesn’t mean anything? Well, fans of Route 66 – despite all odds – recreated the highway as an international icon. I drove it a dozen times in a Ranger. Sweet. Yeah, let’s get that rascal over here. I’ll sign up and pitch it to every truckie I know.

  • Please

    As an owner of a 01 V6 Ranger I recently told a car buff that I would consider buying another Ranger. He told me they stopped making them, and after seeing the small truck market disappear, I’m doing what I can to keep this truck for some extra years. A diesel Ranger would be awesome, it would compliment my 2013 Fiesta in the driveway.

  • durbin

    Ydurbina i’d buy one

  • Devilmonkey

    F U Ford…. looks like i’ll be buying the new 2016 Chevy Colorado with a diesel

  • Kaskz1

    Diesel power & fuel economy is the way to go. Diesel Ranger – want one.

  • Jean-Philippe Poulin

    Sure it as to change fuck the F-150 I dont need to tow 11 000 pound…on ly 8000 would do!

  • brandon

    yes please

  • Dub J

    Please bring this vehicle to the US…. this is just what I’ve been looking for. Thx Ford

  • Waylon

    I agree America needs the small pickup that is fuel efficient like the rest of the world.

  • Rick

    The new F150 is nice but it’s not something I want, way too big. Let me the global Ranger,please!!

  • Carson

    please please please bring this truck to the states I would buy one ASAP love the rangers. DO IT. take my money

  • Carson

    crap only 69 votes, someone get this out there to america

  • moseslonn

    I spoke with one of the grey haired suits at the Oshkosh air show last year who patiently explained that the ‘world’ Ranger would not pass pending US front corner crash tests. Now if they knew that the standards were under consideration, why in hell didn’t they design in survival capability? Those standards aren’t created in a vacuum… So at bare minimum, it would require a front chassis re-design. Let’s see how Chebby does with the new diesel Colorado.

  • CWarne

    In my opinion Ford would make out like a bandit if they brought the Ford Range diesel to the U.S. Everyone loved the Ranger but hated the fuel economy, why buy a small pickup with the fuel mileage of a full size, get more mpg’s and sell more trucks. I would be in line to buy one for sure.

  • Diesel Guy

    I own a 1993 Toyota Hilux Surf 2.4L diesel. This SUV is a beast. I’ve put over 45,000KM running it on veggie oil. It never stops.
    I used to own a 1999 Ford Ranger Diesel. Another beast of a truck that could pull your house off of its foundation.
    America needs to ask why aren’t these vehicles available in the states… Vehicle selection in the US for diesel is shit. The rest of the world gets to have these amazing vehicles and the US gets robbed. Keep buying big brothers oil….

  • Tyler N

    Every pickup I’ve owned has been a Ford, and that is several. But with the Ranger gone, and Nissan and Chevy both gearing up to offer mid-size diesel trucks stateside, I may very well jump ship when my current Ranger is ready to retire. That is of course unless we get the global ranger with a diesel mill here in the next couple years.

  • oregonrob

    Love my little 95′ ranger (2WD, 2.3 liter 4 banger, 25 mpg average) but as this winter has shown me I could use a 4WD, but to get it I need to get the 3.0 liter 6 cylinder and cut my average MPG to about 20. Started looking for a small diesel powered truck so I could go 4WD without the hit to MPG. BIG DISAPOINTMENT! I See (and Hear) Lots of full sized pickups with v8 and v10 diesels that can pull your house down around your ears, but I don’t want a full sized fuel gulper, I just want a small truck to get to work and back, and sometimes haul light cargo

  • ronniem54@yahoo.com

    i am with u all the way we want the new ranger with the diesel i would buy one 2moro i have an outdated 2011 now nice but i need the 30 plus mpg and wouldnt even consider a chevy. come on ford give it a chance

  • reader

    Hell, tell me where I can buy the thing overseas and I’ll buy it and have it shipped. it’s just what I’m looking for. Please Ford do the right thing will ya.

  • Rangerdieselfan

    I am 100% with this. Smartest move ford could possibly make.

  • Jim

    fuck yeeeahhh

  • bryan

    put the bigger diesel in a Raptor ! I dont need to go 90mph off-road, but 22mpg in the toughest truck on the road would be nice. Oh yeah and since I cant afford that, then 30mpg in a range will do.

    Ford better wake up! GM is coming around the corner with a high mpg diesel for there all re-designed Colorado. Been a Ford guy forever and a proud owner of a 56 F100, But both my wife and I are considering Chevys because Ford is letting the ball slip out of their hands. Don’t want a mid-sized Exploder with a high price tagged and incleased repair cost supercharger when I can get a FULL size Tahoe for same $ and same MPGs with V8 pwr and towing. Now put a diesel in it, DONE DEAL!

  • Colin

    Hell, the only reason I have a Focus is because I needed something with better gas mileage. If Ford brought this to America, I’d trade my Focus in in a heartbeat.

  • F150 Dude

    Ford !! Wake up !! Bring on the F150 With a diesel . I don’t want to buy an Obama motors Sierra truck !!

  • Madcap

    I am in, problem is ford wants the profit margin of the f150. Oh well i have a 5.0 to put in my 91 and looking at a fiberglass body since my 2004 is built like a car and can’t take potholes.
