Autoblog reader Johnny B. sent us these pics of a hybrid Ford Escort pickup he found that, quite honestly, should have been built by the Blue Oval, as it evokes everything that was good and right about the original Ford Ranchero. (Whoa, so much dripping sarcasm, it's getting tough to type.) In Johnny's words, it's got "all the power and versatility of an Escort with the comfort of a pickup." Wait, that should probably the other way around, but you get the idea. At this point, we'd take a Focichero to replace Ford's aging Ranger pickup that's got no replacement waiting in the wings as far as we know.
