After all the speculations, Ford finally announces that they were going to offer the Ford Ranger here in the US. They followed that up by announcing the engine that the Ford Ranger will be coming with, the 2.3 liters turbocharged four-cylinder engine but fans were hoping that there was more.
The engine that the Ford Ranger will be getting is the same engine that the Ford Mustang and Ford Focus RS is currently offering. New reports are now saying that besides that engine, Ford might also offer the Ford Ranger with a diesel engine option as well.
This started after the Ford Ranger was spotted getting tested in Michigan with a diesel engine under its hood. Telltale signs like the fuel filler flap with diesel sticker on it and black smoke revealed that the Ranger could be powered by a diesel engine.
Of course, this is far from a confirmation and we will still have to wait for Ford to announce it so take it with a pinch of salt for now.
