FYI - The industry standard is to have a 60 days of inventory on dealer lots.

According to J.D. Power, the average Colorado stays on the lot for only 13 days, making it the fastest-selling pickup on the market.

Ford couldn't have been more wrong about the pent-up demand for mid-sized pickup trucks.

It's a good ute. Resale value is very good too, was looking at a 2nd hand one. Will it be sold in North America?

It's a superb mid-sized ute (aka. bakkie, pickup). Ford claims they've decided not to sell the Ranger in the US (the world's largest ute market) fearing it would steal sales away from the full-sized F-150. Of course, that notion is ridiculous. A mid-size customer never wanted a full-size ute in the first place. And, the full-size F-150 with the 2.7-liter Ecoboost is severely lacking in "Eco", something the mid-size customer is specifically looking for in addition to convenient size.

So in a nutshell, the Ford global Ranger ute is available in every global region, except North America. Go figure.

As I see the situation, the fear is the Ranger T-6 is too close to f-150 size wise and would only canibalize 150 sales. As for the new GM "Canyorado", the ford party line appears to be those trucks are satisfying the pent up ,mid size demand and will eventually fall of in terms of numbers.

So the mid size sales go to GM, Toyota, Nissan and Honda...

Ford plans to offer Raptor and FX4 variants of the global Ranger in the Australian market

Ford Australia has registered the Ford Ranger Raptor and Ford Ranger FX4 trademarks ahead of the revised Ford Ranger‘s local launch later this year.

On June 5, 2015, Ford lodged trademarks for the Ford Ranger Raptor, Ranger Raptor and Ranger FX4.

While there has never been a Ranger Raptor, the previous US market Ranger was available with an FX4 package which included all-terrain tires, a Torsen limited-slip rear differential, skid plates, Bilstein shock absorbers and a 31-spline 8.8-inch rear differential.
