Default Re: rangers are no longer being made

I came across this from 2009;

http://wot.motortrend.com/6550343/fu...ope/index.html

And this..what the interior of the new Mazda looks like;

http://carscoop.blogspot.com/2010/10...new-bt-50.html

It looks like they (new Ranger & Mazda) may be the same truck. Actual photos of the Mazda should be online in a few days when the public sees it at the 2010 Australian International Motor show which starts this Friday.

It's an accurate description as it will be the only Ranger sold globally

Correct. We will not have anything called a "Ranger" so the word "Global" does not mean everywhere necessarily it just means there will only be one model across the board.

From Merriam-Webster (an Encyclopaedia Britannica company now)..formerly Websters Dictionary. Global; 1: SPHERICAL 2: of, relating to, or involving the entire world : worldwide <a global system of communication>; also : of or relating to a celestial body (as the moon) and 3: : of, relating to, or applying to a whole (as a mathematical function or a computer program) : universal <a global search of a file>

Seriously? A dictionary is not necessary. Obviously you don't understand what they mean by a "Global Model" and if your definition were to hold true then we would see Rangers in every country and we all know that is not the case.

How can I explain Global better than a dictionary? Global means everywhere..to call this or anything else that isn't available everywhere is a misnomer on their part.

I guess Ford thought Global as in no more Thai Ranger, South America Ranger or American Ranger... just one Ranger for every country... but North America...

Take it up with FORD if it bothers you that much. The damn thing is ugly anyway.
