Not sure why, but Mazda offered practically the same truck as the ranger (same engine, mechanicals) B4000 would be nearly identical to a 4.0 Ranger. My ranger had a mazda B3000 engine put in after an employee never changing the oil in the Ford motor thus ruining it..

I saw one of those for sale when I was looking to buy.
I wrote it off as a truck that had been hit in the rear and a Mazda bed put on it.
Maybe I should have called and taken a look at it.

mazda and ford are partnered together. makes it easier to produce one truck mechanically with different body parts on it.

They also came off the same assembly line side by side.

I always liked the body line on the Mazda fender. That's about it.
Whenever I would see someone driving the Mazda I would wonder if that driver if asked would claim the Mazda truck was of higher quality than a Ranger, thinking it was made by Mazda. Probably doesn't even know it's essentially the same truck.
Why not buy the real thing?

I have a Mazda which I inherited from my dad, I don't consider it better. I consider it the same thing, with an uglier grill, but better looking fenders, bed.
