2009 Geneva: 2010 Ford Ranger makes U.S. Ranger look like… crap

We’re not sure why Ford refuses to redesign the U.S. spec two-door Ford Ranger pickup. Nonetheless, across the Atlantic, Ford has just unveiled the new 2010 Ford Ranger for Europe with two additional doors and its “kinetic” design theme.

Influenced by the Ford Ranger Max Concept, the 2010 Ford Ranger offers seating for up to 5-passengers and a towing capacity of 6,600 lbs.

It will be available in three body-configurations with a choice of a 143-hp 2.5L or 156-hp 3.0L TDCi turbo diesel engines. They will be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission as standard or a 5-speed automatic as an option.
