TOTD: Would You Buy a Ford Ranger if it Came to the U.S.?

Reports surfaced today that Ford is seriously looking to revive the long-lost Ranger in the U.S. In fact, Ford is apparently trying to put the global pickup into production at its Michigan Assembly Plant, possibly by 2018. But we want to know: If Ford brought the midsize truck back, would you buy one?

Research

The last Ford Ranger rolled off the line in December 2011, ending a 29-year run in the U.S. market. Not only was it the end of an era for Ford, but the Ranger's death also signaled doom for the small pickup truck segment here. At the time, Ford wanted to focus its resources on the lucrative F-150, but not all Ranger loyalists were willing to make the switch upmarket. Now that General Motors has brought back the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, Ford also has the chance for a real comeback of its own. MotorTrend Image© Provided by MotorTrend MotorTrend Image

If the Ranger makes its way back to the U.S., we expect it to be slightly different from the model available outside the U.S. Still, the Ford Ranger Wildtrak that recently debuted for global markets likely holds some clues. That model features chrome cabin details, an 8.0-inch touchscreen display, SYNC-2 in-car connectivity system, and a towing capacity of 7,700 pounds.

Would you buy a new and improved Ford Ranger? Or has its allure been tarnished by the cruel hands of time? Let us know in the comments below.
