Diesel Ford Ranger
Please bring back the Ford Ranger! Please have an available 4cyl diesel engine with manual transmission. Diesel engines are known for their longevity and fuel efficiency. It also takes less processes to make diesel fuel. It's time that America has an American Made small truck with a diesel engine and manual transmission.

John M I've got 2 VW Jetta diesels. They're economical and peppy. I'd love to have the option of owning an American made Ranger w/diesel, and don't forget the manual transmission

Orion R I cant believe it, why wouldnt you sell a diesel Ranger to Americans where ford was born? Just because it resembles the f-150 too much? thats insane bring it over to the us, even call it the f-150 if you like, i see ford rangers everywhere i know they would sell.

Bill McKinley Don't give us excuses! If the German manufactures can make diesels work, why can't Detroit?

Jon K I've often wondered why Europe gets small turbo diesels and we don't. I drove a VW Rabbit Diesel for over 200,000 miles in my earlier life and know that the US is missing the boat on this.

David Duggan "A 21-gallon diesel fuel tank provides a possible range of 620 miles. In a recent mileage test conducted by Ford, we’re told a 2.2-liter Ranger got a class-best 990 miles before it ran out of fuel."
