2011 Ford Ranger Concept - Designed in Thailand!

Thats right! The rest of the world gets the Thailand designed 2011 Ranger and we are still getting by on the old school version from 1983. I love my truck, but I would like to see a little more then what they are offering now. The current design is proven, tough and mighty, however, it would be nice to see an updated version. The current Ranger is the most fuel efficient American truck sold, lets see it develop more into a truck that the masses are looking for.

Rumor has it, the new Ranger will be powered by the Ecoboost 1.6L I-4. I don't have any horsepower numbers on it yet, but I would bet it would beat my Duratec at the race track. I would love to upgrade to one of these in the future. Hopefully Ford will bring this truck here for us to enjoy. They should continue to call it Ranger as well, the F-100 thing would be too confusing.

New 2011 or 2012 Cougar, They should do this!

This concept car was something I found on another forum. I can see this Cougar being made from a Mustang with more luxary features and interior appointments. Maybe throw some shiney 20" wheels, chrome everywhere in the interior and some other items to compete with Cadillac coupes. A big Ecoboost engine would be nice as well. Its time for another personal luxary coupe, hopefully Ford will listen to people who would like to see this.

Too bad Mercury may not be around much longer.
