Ford finally introduced a new worldwide version of the Ranger pickup at the Australian International Auto Show in mid-October.? Last redesigned in 1998, the current model Ranger has gone way over the normal life expectancy of any model. Ford say they plan to sell this new model in 180 different countries around the world, however it will not be sold in the United States.? This leaves Ford without a compact pickup offering for the first time since the Ranger was initially launched in 1982.? The 2011 model Ranger being sold in the U.S. will be the last model sold in the U.S.
