Ford Ranger im Test: Offroad ein echter Kerl
Endlich -- werden sich die deutschen Ranger-Fans denken -- ist es vorbei
mit der biederen Optik des Pick-ups von Ford. Beim neuen Ranger sieht man
nun die Verwandtschaft zu den größeren "F"-Modellen, die in den USA die
meistverkaufte Pick-up-Baureihe darstellt. Unser Testfahrer Christian Jehle
hat den neuen Konkurrenten von Amarok und Co im Offroad-Park Langenaltheim
auf Herz und Nieren getestet.

@Motor Expo 2008 - Ford Ranger Max
Unlike 4-Trac concept, Ford called this a Show Truck, not Concept. But it's
surely a guiding light to the new minor-redesigned Ranger pickups (by
2552/2009). The design of this truck was done by Paul Gibson (Australian
chief of design team) and several designers from Southeast Asia and South
Africa. To create a totally new truck concept that won't follow any other.
Ford Ranger is already a real original rear access system for nearly 7
years in Thailand now. It's important thing event with large change is:
100% Tough Ford Truck, to match all the reality nowadays in our pickup
truck world. However this still based on J97U pickup.

Ranger Max pushes everyone's expectations of Ranger. Visually bold and
muscular, it takes to the stage at the Ford stand with confidence,
sophistication and craftsmanship. The Ranger Max extends Ranger's
reputation as the best all-around compact truck on the market.
"We know Ranger is tough and durable, and Ranger Max adds to those
qualities. The show truck does not follow a trend; it sets a new tough
style direction for compact trucks," says Paul Gibson, the chief designer
of the Ranger Max show truck. "Ranger Max is genuinely tough, and it is a
truck that gets the job done. This high-impact show truck also has the bold
visual presence that looks great on the urban scene."
A team of Ford truck specialists in Thailand worked closely with Ford's
Australia-based Asia Pacific and Africa design team, led by Gibson, to
create Ranger Max. Ford's design team incorporated design cues into Ranger
Max that may be seen in future-generation Ranger.
"The Ranger Max is not just about creating show excitement," Gibson said.
"We have a great opportunity to test design themes that may make their way
into production. Ranger Max says exciting things about the possibilities
for truck fans in Ranger's future."
"The tough style of Ranger Max is based on the capability and versatility
that make Ford Ranger the choice of the most demanding truck owners," said
Mr. Saroj Kiatfuengfoo, senior vice president, Ford Thailand. "Ranger Max's
high-impact design and tough style appeal will excite truck enthusiasts in
