Default Ranger history in the UK

Hello I thought I'd show you all the Ranger models we been getting in the UK these last few years.
As you know Mazda used to make the Courier for Ford before the launch of the US Ranger. When the Ranger was launched in the US, Mazda continued making the Courier or B-Series for UK, Asian & Australian markets.
It wasn't untill about 1999 that Ford launched the UK Ranger mk1

Then the mk2 with a new front end which is the model I have was out in 2003. This was still badged as the Courier in Australia.

The mk3 was out in 2006

And the lastest mk4 was launched this October in 2009

I meself don't care for the new front on the 2009 version, prefer the previous model.

That looks too much like a sport-trac for me to appreciate it as a ranger... and the front end looks tacoma-ish

That's nothing like what it's going to actually look like. It's called a disguise.

Only thing I have really cared about them is the 4 door and the turbo diesel
