Trucks have been no more immune than cars when it comes to suffering from automotive bloat.
The F-150 of today is a beast of a thing compared to the ones I rode around in at the turn of the century, and that's the smallest truck Ford will sell us here in the US.
Life is better for the small truck fan living in Australia.
For whatever reason, the small truck never died out in the Antipodes, and Ford's Asia Pacific region will still sell you the Ranger, albeit one that's still bigger than any Ranger we remember.
While I'm not the biggest truck afficionado, I bring this up because Ford does in fact plan to bring the Ranger back to these shores (along with cult favorite Bronco), and when it does, it needs to make sure that it includes the Ranger Raptor.
The truck people reading this will probably not require any further explanation.
