...beautiful. Another AUS designed vehicle for the USA, it joins the WM Caprice which I see everday here (though I don't think the Caprice is beautiful)

Cant get over the fact that Ford USA has not sold a compact truck here since 2011 while in the meantime Toyota has taken over the market with the big Tacoma. My old Ford-built Mazda B3000 V6 was the most reliable truck I ever owned

the one I saw looked a lot like this

Most of these compact abortions are completely useless
the rear tray area is too high for anything but some
contortionist and the finish is too shiny to not get
scratched and surrounded by blind spots.
A multi purpose dual cab truck should be build like
a Nissan 720, toyota dyna 100, Mazda B or mitsu L300

however Im fine with 4x4 subaru sambar
supercharged, bent but solid Fuji steel tray
I can fit anywhere most of the bigger truck cant.

Saw one of these at the Ford dealer the other day. Crew cab, 4WD, posh, fancy pants options. Nearly US$50k! My 2015 F250 turbo diesel Cowboy Cadillac cost all of $50k new! IMHO, the mfrs are missing the boat by not offering something like the Datsun and Toyota pickups from the 80s, utilitarian, tough, cheap, right-sized.

No lie but that style or Ranger has been available in Vietnam for a couple years now. I kept getting frustrated the USA didnít have such a cool version domestically.

Todays economical climate is not healthy and yet many in the market
need a tough ute like NISTOY offered in the 80s.
If they pumped out a simple bodied, scratch resistant economical ute
then it would be a winner even for the youth.
No need for these expensive useless styled look@me things so mid 2000.

Alternatively love to own a TATA Benz diesel truck made in india
that cost biscuits compared to other diesel trucks around the world
