I have only two questions:

1) Where are they sourcing the parts to build it?

2) Where is it being assembled?

A down firing led reflector is generally going to have better width and control than a multi-optic projector unit. The main difference is going to be the led chip and the power level they chose.

I guess we'll focus on the CVT, FWD and ignore the 2.0T 277ftlb, 8 speed and awd..

None of that was an option when I went through Ford's configurator because I committed the sin of picking the color I wanted first. Selecting a different color does allow me to pick the EcoBoost 2.0T and an 8AT, but still doesn't get me to AWD in a Lariat.

If you drop down a trim level (which I'm good with, I only had Lariat selected because that is where the color I wanted was) you can get 2.0T/8AT/AWD.

So some shade of Red and the drivertrain costs me $10,000 so I'm at $29,900.

I saw that, and it improves things for someone wanting more power and a different drivetrain, but it will likely still be FWD biased with a typical haldex AWD system that doesn稚 have a locking differential, nor will it likely have the towing capacity and off-road rigidity of a body-on-frame truck.

It is basically a Toyota Rav4 AWD with a bed, which isn稚 a bad thing. It should sell well, but it might also trick a few people who see a truck, but don稚 know it is a reskinned CUV.

They should have called the ranger an F75 and this the F37.50, or I guess more properly would have been the F050 and F-050 (minus 050)

I’m strongly considering getting either this or the new Hyundai Santa Cruz. Having a small truck with a 2.5L turbo sounds fun. It would be real nice if they bring an N trim Santa Cruz

Still way too big.
They will never make a truck in the size I would want again.

My neighbor has a yellow one of those Datsun trucks, and there is another on my way to work that is white. I would prefer that size as well. A Suzuki Jimney for off-road 4x4 driving. I have nothing to tow. I could imagine needing to tow a car and supplies to a track someday, maybe.
