I can see a smaller bronco/ranger sharing a "C" length platform.
another former line worker. Mahwah and Edison for me .both long gone and leveled
as to a ranger .it is built for the rest of the world, bring it back. esp. since it's not like building a whole new truck,
certify the trucks for the usa , take a existing building ,import the tooling and install it. build the truck
if we do this Tacoma in my garage will go for sure, only reason I have it is I don't need a full sized pickup to tow what I tow.

So apparently the Ranger is a go.. and the Bronco..altho the Bronco should look like its own Vehicle and not copy anything else in the line up.. Should be able to say that is a Bronco.. not what Ford is that?

was there a new leak or news?

I know the bronco will be off the ranger platform. Ugh....I love the new colorado/canyons but I'd love a ranger. If they could do a bronco 4 door or everest in a manual I'd be all about it!

The bronco better be offered in a manual :/ I guess we will see if it is even aimed at trail/rock duty.

I wouldn't hold my breath about the manual trans. Something I read in one of these links said even the F-150 is only available with an auto trans now.

It is unfortunate that manual transmissions are hard to come by in North America. It would be great if they offered the Ranger and Bronco with manual translations. I also doubt they will.
