PostSubject: Report: Next Generation Global Ford Ranger Not For US   November 9th 2009, 8:54 pm

Ford CEO Alan Mullaly says that there are no plans to sell Ford's next-generation global Ranger compact pickup (code-named T6) in the U.S., according to a report in Automotive News.

Ford sells two version of the Ranger - the U.S.-built Ranger that's sold domestically and in Canada, and a Thai-built Ranger that shares only its name with the North American Ranger. Production of the U.S. Ranger is scheduled to end production by 2011.

Mullaly previously said that the next-gen global Ranger was under consideration for sale here.

So what might take the U.S. Ranger's place after 2011? Our sources say that Ford is seriously considering reviving plans to build the shelved F-100 midsize pickup to help meet tough new fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions regulations that are to be phased in by 2016.

The F-100's footprint is said to be significantly shorter but almost as wide as a current F-150 half-ton and larger in all dimensions than the T6 Ranger.

At the 2009 State Fair of Texas, we asked Mark Fields, Ford's president of the Americas, about the F-100. His coy response instead of dismissing the long-rumored truck?

"We have nothing to announce. We don't talk about future product plans," Fields said.
