The all-new Ford Ranger Wildtrak makes its global debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, a sporty compact pick-up that delivers impressive power and safety, excellent fuel efficiency and significant capability. It exudes a powerful presence bolstered by the latest in-car comfort and technologies.
The new global Ford Ranger boasts an extensive range of class-leading "smart" features that make it easier, safer and more fun to drive than ever. It also sports a unique Rear View Camera System - the camera image is displayed in the rear view mirror - which dramatically improves visibility and simplifies hooking up to a trailer.
Aiming to deliver class-leading safety, new Ranger utilises a whole suite of technologies, including Electronic Stability Program (ESP), to keep its wheels sturdily planted on the road under all conditions. Despite being an enormously capable vehicle, the Ford Ranger is also fitted with technologies such as satellite navigation and Bluetooth® voice control, more commonly found on premium or luxury cars.
Building on Ranger's long-standing heritage of capability, the all-new model extends Ford's credibility further, with selected European versions achieving a best-in-class towing capacity of 3350 kg. Ranger models fitted with the 2.2-litre Ford Duratorq TDCi diesel engine also have an outstanding payload capacity of up to 1333 kg.
New from the ground up - with everything changed except its name - new Ranger is the first commercial vehicle to be built under the One Ford strategy as part of a global product programme, bringing together the full engineering expertise of Ford around the world.
Designed and developed in Australia, Ranger will be offered as a complete family of compact pick-ups with three different cab body styles, 4x2 and 4x4 drive trains, two ride heights and up to five series choices to suit every pocket and market. It will be produced in Thailand, South Africa and Argentina for more than 180 markets worldwide.
"From the introduction of the Ranger brand to Europe in 1997, the Ford Ranger has been a major player in the European pick-up segment," said Jesus Alonso, Ford of Europe's Director for Commercial Vehicle Marketing, Sales and Service. "This all-new global model offers high-level technologies and impressive efficiency and safety. We are starting a new chapter in the Ranger success story."

Unser Testfahrer Christian Jehle hat den neuen Konkurrenten von Amarok und Co im Offroad-Park Langenaltheim auf Herz und Nieren getestet.

All-new Ford Police Interceptor Vehicles - 2012

2011 Chevrolet Colorado Concept
Behold, the next-generation Chevrolet Colorado. Sort of. General Motors has yanked back the sheets on what the company is calling a show truck at the Bangkok International Motor Show. Despite the 'show' label, the mid-sizer is poised to go on sale in Thailand later this year packing a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine, though there are no firm details as to what we can expect in terms of either power or efficiency. GM did say that the Colorado won't leave buyers lacking for enough towing capacity, though. Odds are we can expect tricks like the 20-inch wheels and body-color tonneau cover to be nixed as the truck makes its way closer to production.
Still, the vehicle is plenty sharp and looks to have the mechanical guts to give the global Ford Ranger a run for its money. But will GM offer the Colorado we see here in the States? That's a tough question. The automaker has made it clear that the Shreveport, Louisiana plant that manufactures the aging Colorado/GMC Canyon isn't long for this world, though we have heard rumors that the automaker isn't planning on killing the pickup all together. Here's hoping we'll see this truck or something similar in the States sometime soon.

2012 Ford Ranger
The all-new Ford Ranger - the latest in a wave of global vehicles - made its worldwide debut at the 2010 Australian International Motor Show. The all-new Ranger has a powerful presence and promises to give pickup truck owners more can-do capability and a transformed truck ownership experience.
From impressive gains in power and safety to exceptional towing capability, the next-generation Ford Ranger emerges as a clear segment leader. It not only builds on the tremendous Ranger heritage of pickup truck capability, but it also gives truck owners a spacious, comfortable, feature-filled interior and sophisticated driving experience they would expect to find only in a car.
Amongst the most high-tech in its segment, Ford Ranger is the impressive result of an all-new global compact pickup truck platform from Ford - the latest to emerge under the company's One Ford initiative - and Mazda. It replaces two previous-generation compact truck platforms currently in production to present a new face of Built Ford Tough to customers around the world.
Built on innovation, it boasts a list of technologies and features to lead the segment - including a new Rearview Camera System, Rear Park Assist, Trailer Sway Control and Adaptive Load Control. Ford plans to reveal even more new Ranger technologies in the coming months.
Destined for sale across five continents and more than 180 markets, Ford Ranger will be offered as a complete family of compact trucks - with three different cab body styles, 4x2 and 4x4 drivetrains, two ride heights and up to five series choices, depending on the market.

2012 Ford Ranger XLT Double Cab - Quick Spin - NRMA Drivers Seat
FIRST THOUGHTS: The Ford Ranger has always been a tough performer on both job sites and off-road. With this new, locally designed and developed model, Ford has set the bar high and achieved levels of on-road refinement never before seen from the Ranger. Ford has Amarok and HiLux clearly and squarely in its sights.
It's easy to get a little misty eyed and slip on the rose tinted spectacles when you're test driving a bona fide local product. We spend so much seat time in vehicles designed and built overseas, that a true Aussie product is rare.
However, let's get that little bit of patriotism out of the way early. There's no need for it with Ranger. Sure the Ranger was developed and refined here, but it's heading to no less than 180 markets -- more than any other Ford product. And, it's going to kick some serious goals in every single one of them judging by our first drive.
Straight up, the Ranger looks like a truck, in the US sense of the word. Think Ford F150. There's no doubt that Ford's legendary truck DNA is on display here and I think that's a good thing. I've always appreciated a truck that looks like a truck. They are supposed to be tough as nails and built for the long haul. The Ranger looks like that, but it's also quite stylish and that's thanks to the subtle use of F-Truck DNA.
