Default Ford Ranger coming in????

Last week I saw a ford ranger being tested on NH4. I followed it up on my two wheeler from satara to Pune. It was black and looked neat. (On the same lines as that of Scorpio Gettaway. Or rather getaways is influenced by it)

They also had TN registration numbers on it. They also one more model that looked like enverour.

Ranger was certainly diesel and when I tried speaking to ranger drives, he would tell anything..

Does anybody know the details?

it was wxpected in 2006 for a price range of 12-14 lacs there was a blue one caught testing long ago it was dark blue TN regd.

but maybe they kept their plans for launching it as it is not likly to have good volumes as yet...maybe not even as many as endevours

In front of Raheja residency.A beige color one. Couldn't notice the registration number. Don't know whether it was a Karnataka registered one or not.

there is a Ford F-250 Super Duty in Delhi...it's belongs to someone working at the American Embassey...it was brought in by my classmate's dad, and later sold to one of his colleagues. I believe it's still there, a dark Navy colour, can't remember if it's single cab or double, but if that thing is behind you, trust me, you'll give him right of way

OT: Well , nothing like the Dodge Rams for the solid look. Reliability thats another thing.

Wish all you want, no Ford pick ups are coming our way.
