2015 Ford Ranger pickup truck review
If Ranger comes to United States it can’t come as a copy of Australian made version. That way it would be too similar to the F 150 and it sales would stagnate due to F 150 popularity. So Ford will need to make this model different and almost ground breaking. Aluminum body panels would be a good start for something like that. It will make this Ford pickup truck lighter and much more fuel efficient. Since we haven’t seen too many trucks with that kind of construction it would definitely be something new to offer to the truck lovers around US. Under the camo, that the new Ranger wearing, we can notice new hexagonal chrome grille like we saw on Everest. There are also front parking sensors on the front bumper. That means a semi-automated parking aid feature could be available as an option. The rear side of the new 2016 Ford Ranger will be the same as the predecessors.
When it comes to pick up truck interior design, it is all up to who offer the biggest number of hi tech features.

So if Ranger really does come back to the US market expect unexpected, it is going to come with supportive seats, premium leather upholstery, powerful sound system and infotainment system with an easy and practical layout. So expect all the features that don’t belong to a truck.
