That would require Ford to actually put some thought into the Ranger...

Also because if they put the 4.2 in the ranger, they probably wouldn't sell many of the v6 f150s and you know how they don't want the ranger to outsell the f-series

There are several Ford engines I wouldn't mind seeing in a Ranger:
3.5L EcoBoost (Taurus SHO, 2011 F-150 + others)
3.7L NA V6 (Mustang, 2011 F-150 + others)
3.0L NA V6 (Escape)
turbo 4 (2011 Focus)

Nevermind what the "Global" Ranger gets
