In the highly competitive U.S. small truck market, Ford Motor Company has seen its offering, the Ranger pickup, slowly outclassed as its aging platform and powertrains fall further and further behind such polished rivals as the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier. Your task is to completely redesign the Ranger, both as a fitting smaller sibling to America's best-selling truck--the F-150--and as a true competitor to the imports. The new design must be bold and due consideration must be made to the features small truck buyers will look for in a next-generation truck. Good luck!<p><br>Contest will close on the 10th of January

here's my entry.<br>the new Ranger is a more compact truck. the truck's back side is inspired by the Honda Ridgeline. well, the design isn't very sharp, but it is quite bold and i like it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>and one technical issue...the back came too short due to lack of space on the paper, and the scanner twisted it more...so basically the back should be a bit longer...:)<p>here're two pics of the same drawing...couldn't decide which one looks less twisted...<p><IMG SRC="http://img471.imageshack.us/img471/2548/fordranger2ip3.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img464.imageshack.us/img464/574/fordrangerac0.jpg" BORDER="0">

I like it. But for some reason, the grill reminds me of a gilloutine.<p>Napoleondyna, Yours is nice too. It's very Family-esque, imitating the F-150.<p>You'll see my entry in about 30-45 mins.

Here's Mine.<p>I've always like the compact truck. It gets a little larger, but it still is a compact truck. It uses the same array of engines in the current rangers. <p>I've always liked the bulbous concepts of the late 80's early 90's....... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/werd.gif" BORDER="0"> <p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beigesmilewinkgrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i87/Vannette_12/qqw.jpg" BORDER="0">

Great work so far guys!!!<p>napoleondyna - your entry is similar to my own (I used the stepped F150-style window as well. It's pretty standard, but a solid design, very tough.<p>or2001 - Great coloring and a sweet design, I'm just not so sure it conveys an American ruggedness that could set the Ranger apart. On the other hand, smoothing it out and giving it a sleeker, sportier look is a different direction that could totally work, so I can't fault you there. I love the way the pillar slopes back into the side of the bed, a la Honda Ridgeline... very sporty. I think the grille could have been a little more interesting, but still an amazing truck.<p>peugeot_206 - I like the face; the round lights and the 3-bar grille are a nod to the Bronco concept of a couple years back, which is a great look for this truck. Unfortunately, I don't think the sides or greenhouse go as well with it as they could have. Nice clamshell doors, and good coloring. Were the exposed hinges an inentional design element?<p>Mine will be up soon.... I've been snowed in for a few days so I've been hard at work <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> We just got our cable internet back up.

i meant it to be sleekier, sort of a new direction for the Ranger, as a different aproach "against" the japanese ones :P<p>how can i make it more interesting? i thought about doing the metal part of it like Peugeot_206's, but it looked a bit weird :S

<B>The New Ranger: Compact Size, Full-Size Capability.</B><p>The 2008 Ford Ranger brings a bold, American flair to the compact pickup market, as well as innovative features and exciting performance that will ensure its place as the new segment leader.<p>First and foremost, the ground-up redesigned Ranger sports aggressive new sheetmetal which incorporates Ford's trademark 3-bar grille. The chiseled body includes fusion-esque headlamps, beefy flared fenders, and stepped side glass inspired by the Ranger's larger F-150 sibling. <p>One of the several unique features integrated into the 2008 Ranger is a step mounted on each side for bed access; these may be converted to an optional pull out storage drawer or removable tool chest (both of which are weather-sealed and lockable). Furthermore, the 2008 Ranger comes optionally equipped with Ford's patented Versa-Bed system. With Versa-Bed, drivers may transport longer or wider loads not accomodated by the standard bed size. The Top portions of the bed sides and tailgate fold downward 90 degrees, and a second load floor may be slid into place, allowing a larger flat load floor while leaving the remainder of cargo space beneath for other items. These thoughtful features allow flexibility and capability previously unimaginable in a compact truck. <p>Another exciting addition to the Ranger line comes in the form of the Ranger S/C, with a supercharged 310hp V6. This sport-oriented truck--available in RWD or 4WD--sets a new precedent for compact sport trucks. With an SVT-tuned suspension and steering systems, beefier ventilated disc brakes, and unique 18 or 20 inch wheels, the S/C provides excellent feedback and razor-sharp handling. In addition, all S/C models come equipped with sport interior trim, hood and side-mounted exit vents, rear bumpers with integrated sport exhausts, mesh front grille, and a host of other exciting features.<p>The 2008 Ranger will offer unparalleled versatility, with a choice of 4- and 6-cylinder gasoline powerplants (with a diesel to follow), 5- and 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions, three cab styles, and multiple interior configurations. Look for the new Ranger to achieve tremendous success in the segment, with an incredible mix of capability, versatility, style, and performance.<p><I>(standard cab Off-Road Touring package shown)</I><br><IMG SRC="http://img236.imageshack.us/img236/4926/ranger1sr6.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><I>(S/C model pictured with Versa-Bed system)</I><br><IMG SRC="http://img236.imageshack.us/img236/1248/ranger2zn1.jpg" BORDER="0">

napoleondyna- Overall design seems very attractive and tough looking, but i would advise you to do a front view as well, so we can see what it truely looks like.<p>or2001- reminds me more of an el-camino than a ranger, mainly because it looks a tad too small. It also doesnt really look like a ford, if that's what you were going for then it's not a problem. i think you're design would be a nice competitor to the subaru Baja. <p>peugeot206- Interesting design, i like how you've gone retro with the front end, and futuristic with everything else. But i think you should make the three-bar grill stand out more and make the roofline less curvacious than it is now. Also, it needs more ground clearance IMO. Nice coloring too.<p>DoMiNo- it looks fantastic, but a little long for a ranger Imo (in the blue pic). Also, the belt line seems a bit too high for my tastes (again, from the blue pic). You seem to have fixed those problems with your second rendering. I really like the strong bold look of the front end, and how you've incorporated the bumper in making the headlights more in line with what ford has shown in concepts. Overall an excellent entry!<p><br>Well, i personally am not too good with trucks, but here's my entry:<p><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f4/mountdoug/Fordrangerfinal2.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>i hope you like!<BR><BR>

Built Ford Tough.</B><p>Dearborn, MI- The 2008 Ford Ranger is back. It is here to benchmark the tough sector in the market and it is designed to bring what all consumers need: style, versatility, and of course, power. The Ranger approaches where no truck has ever gone before. Ford ensures the Ranger is your dream truck for your needs.<p><B>Style</B><p>The Ranger does not sacrifice style in bringing the truck into the tough environment it encounters just about everywhere. From the traditioinal three-bar grille to its rugged bodystyle, the Ranger meets just about everyone's tastes. The Ranger has many cues from its sibling, the F-150. The Ranger also increases in size to accommodate even more than your expectations.<p><B>Power</B><p>'Built Ford Tough' is clearly evident on the new Ranger's boundless capabilities. The Ranger comes standard with a 4.0L 202hp V6 engine standard on the base model. The FX4 trim gets an even more powerful powertrain, a 4.0L 288hp V8 mated to a 6-speed AT. Torque information will be released when the truck is shown at the 2007 NAIAS.<p><B>Versatility</B><p>The new Ranger ensures that the Ranger is capable of just about doing anything that meets your needs. The Ranger's unique FoldAway Cover works automatically in a touch of a button. The Ranger also has a Divide'n'Hide system where objects on the cargo bed can be extended through the spacious cab.<p>More details will be announced when the new Ranger is revealed for the first time to the public at the 2007 North American International Autoshow.<p><B>Ranger. <I>Built Ford Tough</I></B> </TD></TR></TABLE><p>Source: Ford Motor Corporation<p>The scan came out terribly.

Okay, here we go. I have to say, I really liked how this design came out, but I think the marker render really killed it, especially the blue one. Nonetheless, the largeness and boldness of the design is still easily seen, achieved using a thick body with butch but not overly-fussy graphics, such as the very simple yet effective fender flares and the large but simple three-bar-grille. The truck also gets an infusion of sportiness using several sport-car cues, such as a body line that curves up behind the doors reminiscent of an air intake, and a low, chopped roof. The rear wrap-around taillamp gives the Ranger a look unlike any truck on the market; unique, modern and bold, and instantly recognizable from any angle, whether it is the huge, bold front end rushing up behind you or the unique rear end passing you.<p>There are two points of innovative utility. First is the ubiquitous dual-layer bed design everyone seems to have thought of already, haha! The rear door has a double-door feature; the portion below the wrap-around taillamp can be lowered by itself, to store stuff under the lockable shelf, to keep it safe and protected. Stuff can be put above the shelf too. The entire rear gate can be folded down for larger materials, and the shelf can be dropped. Second are two cubbies aft of the doors; these can be used to carry any number of items, such as a toolkit or a wetbox for wet clothing or wet suits that are too wet for the cabin but would flap around in the trunk. Directly below these cubbies are kick-out footholds that will not gather mud or gunk during hard off-roading.<p> <IMG SRC="http://img89.imageshack.us/img89/4646/img061tp4.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>edit: oh yeah, it's drawn on the back of one of my lab reports.

The new Ford Ranger represents Fords bold styling direction connected to the popular design theme tracked by some European Ford vehicles such as the Ford Iosis or the Ford Iosis X, being a modern, stylish truck.<p>The headlights integrate the old Rangers vertical grille bars, forming the typical Iosis headlight styling and flowing into the three bar grille. The greenhouse imitates the one of the F150 in a curved way, which improves the cars sportiness and gives a dynamical hint to the side view. The tail lights also follow the Iosis styling theme attended by the lower LED lighting, which encloses the round, polished exhaust pipes.<p><br><IMG SRC="http://img48.imageshack.us/img48/1639/fordranger1hk2.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>Quick sketch of the back:<br><IMG SRC="http://img48.imageshack.us/img48/3822/fordrangerbackgy2.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img240.imageshack.us/img240/9956/fordrangerlogosuq7.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>Hope you like it, please comment! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beerchug.gif" BORDER="0">

4 - Axis: A tough looker. Needs more refinement and Ford cues but it looks mean and purposeful, unique and bold, tough and meaty, what a future Ranger needs to be in order to stand out.<br>3 - Domino: as usual, the technique is beautiful. There are some awesome ideas, such as the folding Versa Bed, and the wheels on both normal and S/C version look phenomenal (The S/C version in general is tastefully done and looks mean). However, the car is imo too Fusion-esque and car-like to mean real business. I think belt line looks a tad too high too.<br>2 - Taskbearer: a futuristic and great design with a lot of potential. I would love to see a more finalized render of this design, with more detailing and detailing.<br>1 - AGNRDARNETW: a great face design. Needs more work on the rest of the car, but that grille is so imposing, futuristic and bold yet still so very Ford.
