It's always a little sad when we receive word when a certain vehicle won't be available in the U.S. This is what's happening with the 2012 Ford Ranger. A truck with designs that make it a shoe-in for the spot right beneath the F-150, sadly is not coming to the U.S. The reason behind this decision is because the new Ranger is larger than the current version, and it may overlap with smaller F-150 models, the bread and butter of Ford's truck lineup.

If it's not coming to American, then where will it be going? The Ranger will be found in markets ranging from the Asia-Pacific region to South America and South Africa. Under the hood the Ranger is powered by a 2.2-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, or a 3.2-liter in-line five-cylinder turbo-diesel, making some 200 horsepower. Though some truck enthusiasts may be a little sad that this vehicle will pass us by, it's clearly a move by Ford global in what it sees as being the right direction.
