    1392998460

    Way back in August, we showed you a Ford concept for the Australian market called the Everest. Now, we can show you that work on the new Ranger-based SUV is well under way.

    Ford has been in hot water in Australia ever since it announced plans to end local production of the Falcon and Territory SUV.

    1375194660

    Avert your eyes now if you're jealous that the global version of the Ford Ranger is not offered in the US. Ford's midsize pickup is being tuned up to take on the 2014 Dakar Rally, and the result is a truck that is probably even cooler than any F-150 SVT Raptor we've ever seen in the States.

    Believe it or not, the full-size pickup trucks that dominate the North American market don't find much favor in other corners of the globe.
