    Not sure if it's just pictures, but it seems like the bumper on the Ranger X sticks out really far.

    On another note, I'm glad I just ordered a XLT. I was afraid I was going to really miss having the Lariet LED's, but from all these pics I think it's cleaner.

    @Stic-o I really like the bumpers on the White and Silver/Black trucks.

    Yeah the bed bar was inspired by the Colorado. All we are missing is a new episode of Walker Texas Ranger with one of the trucks haha

    I really like the new front end with any aftermarket bumper. Also I can agree with the xlt vs led trim headlights. It's like the headlights aren't tall enough to add the led strip.

    Ten speed auto trans? Jesus. I wonder if they will come with a v8 option instead if just the 2.3 Ecoboost.

    Love all of them except the X-box Ranger.

    The Ranger-X utility bed, is the best Ranger, I have ever seen to date. BDS hit it out of the park with that build.

    The ten speed is a variant of the F150 transmission, so it's well proven.

    You won't see a V8 in the Ranger. Officially there are no plans for any other engine options, but the 2.7 or maybe even the 3.5 might be possible. Honestly, there's no real need. The 2.3 eco already makes more power and torque than any previous Ranger engine (by a large margin), and the torque curve is board flat from just off idle all the way to near redline. Very, very impressive engines.

    The 3.5L would be a beast. I drove an F150 SuperCrew with that engine and it was a blast.

    I thought I read in Ford Authority that the Ranger Raptor will not be coming to the North America market at this time.

    That's correct. The official word for now is that we will not get it.

    I'm hoping that Ford unveils the Bronco at next year's SEMA show.

    You should see the new Bronco at NAIAS, based on the conversation we had with one of their people at the plant event last Monday
