Exclamation Ford Ranger Storm



If it wasn’t bad enough that Ford told us we weren’t going to get the Ford Ranger Raptor here in the United States, Ford has released a new Ford Ranger concept to add to that frustration.

Introduced at the Sao Paulo International Motor Show this week, the Ford Ranger Storm is an off-road pickup concept that looks ready to go on sale tomorrow. Unfortunately for us, if the Storm does go to production, it will probably only be sold in Brazil.

To create the Storm concept, Ford gave the Ranger an integrated snorkel, a roof rack, more protective body cladding, 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich all-terrain tires, off-road bumpers, running boards, and what appears to be a small lift. It also gets a “STORM” grille and tailgate, as well as an orange and black graphics package. Under the hood, the Ranger Storm has a 3.2-liter diesel engine that makes 200 hp, with shifting handled by a six-speed automatic transmission.

Very little information is known about this vehicle, but I think Ford needs to give us something like this on the North American platform , since they’re not letting us have the Ford Ranger Raptor.

Graphics need help but it is a nice looking truck.

Wish Ford could come out with wheels that don't look like they belong in a mid 00's 500/Taurus.

Kinda hope they bring the Raptor here but with a different name. Ranger Raptor sounds weird. FX4 Level II?

It almost seems as if each market is getting a Ranger specific to that market. Australia gets the WildTrac, Rapor is not for USA. Brazil might get this one. The American market is just so far behind. This is an old design in most places, only new to us. I think eventually we will start to get the cool ones, I mean come on, this IS America, the coolest country on the planet. We will have the coolest trucks too, eventually, (I hope)

In some pics, on the Fender vent, it says 3.2 diesel, what do the OTHER ones say?

I wish ford would stop struggling to catch up, and start leading.

Some people get it.......

Some don't.

Sad when I want Ford to follow this Chevy example for inspiration.

There is a Gen2 running around near me that looks like an old man went to town on it with a JC Whitney catalog.

The kid who drives it is just as bad.

See that thing looks somewhat built tough and functional not just goofy plastic accessories everywhere and a paint job...
