With that being said, we're not entirely sure this model really is bound for the U.S. It could just be that Ford is testing a foreign market vehicle here because of its plentiful testing resources near its HQ. The big tipoff to this probably being a foreign-market Ranger is the fact that this truck is right-hand-drive. There's also the inclusion of the truck's diesel engine. While we won't completely rule out a diesel coming to America eventually, Ford has been pretty clear that America is only getting the turbocharged gasoline four-cylinder from the start. Ford has also hinted that it plans on putting a gas engine in the Raptor instead of the diesel it will get in other countries.
Like the diesel, though, we also wouldn't rule out Ford offering some sort of Wildtrak-style trim in the U.S. It would provide a nice stepping stone between basic Rangers and the ridiculous Raptor. It would also be a good competitor to other mid-level off-road trucks such as the Chevy Colorado Z71 and the Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road. Only time will tell at this point.
