Looks like the covers – and camouflage – have come off the new Ford Ranger. The last time the truck was spotted by Danny, it was covered with what looks like a complete sticker job bearing black and white swirl patterns.

Now, new photos have come about of the pickup, sans disguise. Reader Ariff saw the truck sitting in a carpark in Shah Alam, and noticed it because of the distinct rear end, and also because there were no plates on it.

The vehicle in the photos is a 3.2 litre variant, which wears the five-cylinder diesel mill of said displacement – numbers for this one are 200 PS and 470 Nm of torque. As we’re aware of, the T6 Ranger will arrive here initially – sometime in the second quarter of the year – wearing the other diesel mill on offer, the 150 PS and 375 Nm 2.2 litre four-cylinder.

The 3.2 litre variant hasn’t actually been confirmed for Malaysia, but it looks like the XLT example seen here is being sampled, adding fuel to the speculation that the version will eventually make it here, perhaps in Wildtrak form! Tip of the hat to Ariff for the pix.
