Hey, listen, if you want to watch Ford videos, that's entirely up to you. We're not going to judge you. In fact, we will even make it easy for you to see the latest Ranger Raptor spy video (from Ford Austrailia).

 

 

 

That said, you're more than welcome to comment on the video below if you like. Here's mine; "Ford missed half a decade of huge midsize truck sales, but they made a decent video."

      Ford announced today that the Ranger midsize pickup truck will return for model year 2019. That means that the Ranger is about two full years away from being available for sale. Along with this news, Ford announced a rugged new Broco midsize SUV. Ford made this statement on the Bronco:
      - “We’ve heard our customers loud and clear. They want a new generation of vehicles that are incredibly capable yet fun to drive,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of The Americas. “Ranger is for truck buyers who want an affordable, functional, rugged and maneuverable pickup that’s Built Ford Tough. Bronco will be a no-compromise midsize 4x4 utility for thrill seekers who want to venture way beyond the city.” Interestingly, Ford also had a lot to say about the exact opposite; vehicle and transportation solutions for people who want to be driven about in autonomous EVs.
       
      Ford was very clear that its Bronco and Ranger would all be built in the U.S. at its plants in Wayne, Michigan.
       
      We are presently searching for official images of the Ranger and Bronco and will add them to the story as they are available.

      Let's all agree to be honest about a few things. First, as we say here in New England "Nothing on the level." That is a quote made popular by Howie Carr, a famous Boston corruption reporter. So when we read that international media were invited to a Ford Australia meeting during which Ford accidentally showed the press a new Ranger testing alongside the Tacoma (a North-American product, Hilux is the international model) and the Colorado, we are not as surprised as we might be. It could be an accident, a misunderstanding, or Ford might have staged it. Who cares, really? A new Ranger would be cool. I have friends nursing their current Ranger and saying a prayer each night that it will come back to market before theirs dies completely.
       
      Let's also face the truth that the reason GM and Toyota sell-out their mid-size trucks each month may not be an accident. Perhaps they both know that Ford will return to the U.S. market and that is the reason two of the globe's largest and most capable automakers have not expanded their factories to meet the demand. Factories and workers are very difficult to downsize. Sold-out trucks is not a bad thing.
       
      Last, although we root for GM here, imagine an aluminum Ford Ranger with the 2.7-liter Ecoboost. It gives me the shivers in a good way. How about you?

      We all love our pickup trucks. No matter the job, our trusty Sierra has never let us down. Our only complaint is that a full-size truck is, well, full sized. There are some projects that need a smaller set of tools. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a “pickup truck for your property?” We’ve found out, there actually is. The Polaris RANGER.
       

       
      A new generation of off-road vehicles
      Growing up in New Hampshire we loved riding our 1990’s 300CC Arctic Cat ATV around the numerous logging trails, powerlines, and abandoned roads in the area. Needless to say, we wasted many hours and days beating the absolute heck out of that all terrain vehicle; all of them with a huge smile on our faces.
       
      So when we had the opportunity to drive a new generation of Polaris off-road vehicles last September in New York, all those good feelings came rushing back. We also felt a little overwhelmed as these types of machines have come a long way in two decades. Just like today’s automobiles, the days of carbureted engines are over. Today’s all terrain and utility terrain vehicles are computer controlled and more capable than ever.
       

       
      After trying out the entire line of Polaris off-road vehicles we instantly fell in love with the company’s lineup of side by side vehicles. Arguably the new hotness in the all-terrain market, side by side all-terrain-vehicles provide the seating, steering and driving experience we all know from driving a car. No more handlebars or saddle-style seating required. In some states you can even drive side by sides on the roads.
       
      The company offers three distinct side by side machines; the RZR (pronounced “razer”), the Ace, and the RANGER. While the RZR and Ace are targeted to the sport and trail riding segments, the RANGER is different. It looks like an ATV, drives like a side by side, but also has a dumping cargo box and pickup truck like capabilities. In our mind, that’s a perfect combination and we knew we had to have one.
       

       
      Over the winter we made our pitch to Polaris. Send us a RANGER for a few weeks and we’ll give the world our honest opinion. The company did one better and six weeks ago in late May we took delivery of our brand new Long Term 2015 Polaris RANGER XP900 from HK Powersports in Hooksett, New Hampshire. For the next few months we’ll be sharing with your our “ownership” experience.
       
      Meet the RANGER
      So, what is a Polaris RANGER and what can it do for you? Officially, a RANGER is a Utility Terrain Vehicle (UTV). It seats three people in a side by side configuration, has a proper steering wheel, and uses a typical gas/brake setup for control. It also has seat belts and features a R.O.P.S compliant safety cage.
       

       
      The RANGER XP900 is powered by a 68-horsepower two-cylinder engine and has three mode selectable four-wheel drive. With lugged off-road tires, the RANGER promises the ability to travel and work nearly anywhere. Our long term tester is even equipped with electronic power steering to cut down on fatigue.
       

       
      On the trail or at the farm, our RANGER seems ready to work or play. The large cargo box and a real hitch receiver give you the flexibility to haul up to 1,500lbs or tow up to 2,000lbs. We’ve already started to use these abilities on some overdue projects around the house and our neighborhood.
       

       
      Ownership So Far
      We’ve been riding our RANGER for the last six weeks. What we enjoy the most so far is the absolute versability this vehicle offers. From cleaning up fallen trees to blowing off some steam on the trails, the RANGER has done everything we’ve asked and begged for more.
       
      Here’s what we’ve been up to:
      Cleaned up pine logs from fallen trees Recreational riding on unimproved open access roads Volunteering to rake community beaches with a York Rake Commuting to work (yes, we did it!)
       
      Over the next few weeks we’re excited to share with you the ways we’re using and owning our Polaris RANGER. That means we’ll cover the good and the bad.
       
      As our long term test continues we’ll investigate the true utility capabilities of the RANGER by using it around our property. We’ll then investigate the recreational aspect of RANGER ownership by trailering it to a public ATV park for a fun weekend getaway.
       

       
      Stay tuned as part two of our Polaris RANGER Long Term test comes at you soon!
