We're Driving The Crappiest Trucks At The Dakar Rally And It's Awesome

The 2015 Dakar Rally and its hundreds of vehicles are raging across South America right now. Racers, support crews, logistics teams... and my diesel, manual, 2WD support trucks being bludgeoned within an inch of existence but simply refusing to die. » 1/11/15 10:59am 1/11/15 10:59am

New Ford Ranger Spotted In The US, Looks A Lot Bigger Than We Remember

Every once in awhile, we're titillated by a new Ford Ranger pickup or Everest SUV caught cruising around here in the US. Is this beautiful "Wildtrak Orange" Ranger just a Ford staffer's transportation (probably) or a test mule for some new running gear? » 8/04/14 5:18pm 8/04/14 5:18pm

Why You Should Maybe Wear A Seatbelt When Jumping Your Truck

I'm not going to say that a seatbelt is an absolute must-have when you're launching your old Ford Ranger many feet into the air, because I've never jumped a truck before. But looking at this video evidence, I think it might be a good idea. » 3/11/14 1:00pm 3/11/14 1:00pm

For $3,500, Don’t Be Lone

Last Summer’s Lone Ranger movie may have been box office bowel antics, but that doesn’t mean today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Ford Ranger needs to be. It’s rocking a Turbo Pinto mill, but will the Ranger's price have you shouting hi-ho silver? » 11/19/13 8:00am 11/19/13 8:00am

For $2,700, Hi Ho Silver!

The present Government shutdown may have idled a ton of park rangers, but owing to its 5.0 you wouldn't want to do the same with today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Ranger. Will its price however prove to be a threatening fiscal cliff? » 10/16/13 8:00am 10/16/13 8:00am

Ford Enters 2014 Dakar Rally With Wonderful Mustang-Powered Rangers

We don't get the Ford Ranger in America because there is absolutely no reason anyone would need a small pickup truck in this country. Now Ford is taking it to the most grueling rally in the world. And they're shoving a V8 under the hood. » 7/30/13 10:56am 7/30/13 10:56am

A New Ford Ranger With A 5.0-Liter V8 Is A Beautiful Thing

America's affinity for small, practical trucks is practically dead. The Ford Ranger and Chevy S10 are gone, Toyota and Nissan's "small" pickups have swollen to proportions approaching those of full sized trucks, and Jeeps are, well, Jeeps. » 7/16/12 1:20pm 7/16/12 1:20pm

The Ford Ranger For America

All this talk of the global, non-American 2011 Ford Ranger made us wonder if Ford even bothered to post a photo of the built-for-America 2011 Ford Ranger to their media site. Yup. Here it is. » 10/15/10 10:00am 10/15/10 10:00am

2011 Ford Ranger T6: Do. Want.

Others may show you this real 2011 Ford Ranger and complain about us not getting it. Boo-freaking-hoo. This is America. You're saying we can displace myriad native populations but can't get one truck? If you want it, go get it. » 10/14/10 10:00am 10/14/10 10:00am

2011 Ford Ranger: Screw U... S.A.

Want to buy a 2011 Ford Ranger? Tough. We're not getting it because it's already 90% the size of an F-150. Then why doesn't Ford just sell F-150s globally? [PickupTrucks] » 9/20/10 9:45am 9/20/10 9:45am
