2011 ford ranger Reviews and News

Final Ford Ranger Front Three Quarter
The last Ford Ranger compact pickup truck was built today, ending the model’s 28-year production run. The very last Ranger, seen above, was a white Sport model built at Ford’s Twin Cities Assembly Plant in St. Paul, Minnesota. The Ranger is the only Ford vehicle assembled at the Twin Cities factory, which employs 880 people.
2011 Ford Ranger SportHero Front Three Quarter
With 6.6 million units sold since 1983, the Ford Ranger was once the best-selling truck in the compact pickup segment. Now, The Detroit News reports that the last Ranger model will roll off the line on December 19, also marking the final day of operation for Ford’s 86-year-old Twin Cities Assembly Plant in Minnesota. As there’s less than a $5000 difference between the larger F-150 and the  compact Ranger, and being that engine options in the full-size truck have become more efficient, Ford has a hard time justifying the Ranger’s existence in the U.S. market. As such, the Ranger will breathe its last breath on U.S. soil on December 19.
2012 Ford Ranger EU Front Three Quarter 2
The Ford Ranger--no, not the Ford Ranger that will soon leave American showrooms, the all-new global truck that won’t be sold in our market --has made history by becoming the first pickup truck to receive a five-star rating from the European New Car Assessment Program.

Ford and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have issued a recall for the 2011 Ford Ranger, and for service parts sold to dealerships for the 2004-2011 Ford Ranger, 2002-2007 Ford E-Series, and 2002-2005 Ford Excursion. A malfunctioning switch could prevent certain lights from working.
Ranger High Water Test
Long sought-after by American midsize truck enthusiasts, Ford’s world Ranger (not sold in the U.S.) was driven through nearly three feet of water to ensure its suitability for emerging markets where it is popular, such as Thailand, which can receive as much as 40 inches of rain a month in some of its interior regions. The two primary tests are a high-speed, 40 mile-per-hour test through six inches of water, and a low-speed, 4 mph test through nearly 32 inches of water. As if that weren’t enough, the vehicle was loaded to its maximum rated gross vehicle weight while undergoing the test. The Ranger is one of the best-selling vehicles in Thailand, which has many rural and undeveloped areas with poor or no roads. The Ranger’s off-road capability is one of the key attributes to its popularity in the local market. Some areas of Thailand’s interior can receive up to 40 inches of rain a month during the Monsoon season. During vehicle testing, engineers re-located the alternator higher up on the engine to prevent failure when fording deep water, and located the engine air intake high enough where water ingestion wouldn’t be an issue. Components that remain submerged during deep-water driving were tested for water resistance so that performance wouldn’t be affected. To add insult to injury to American world Ranger fans, the forbidden fruit’s top powertrain is a 3.2 liter five-cylinder turbodiesel producing 200 horsepower and 347 pound-feet of torque. The engine can be had with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Source: Ford Click here for video
