Ford Ranger Slated for Return to US in 2018



According to sources familiar with Fordís plans, the American automaker has begun contract negotiations with the United Auto Workers that will bring production of the Ranger to a Michigan Assembly Plant in 2018. If everything gets approved, the Ford Ranger will replace production of both the Focus and C-Max, which will likely be heading to Mexico.

The Ford Ranger was the best-selling compact pickup truck in the U.S. from 1987 to 2004. Retail sales of the Ford Ranger were discontinued in the U.S. in 2011 while fleet sales lasted until the 2012 model year.

The compact pickup truck market has grown in recent years with the introduction of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. Currently, the Ranger is built in South Africa, Argentina, Thailand and Nigeria for 180 overseas markets. Ford hasnít been importing the Ranger due to the 25-percent tax on foreign-built pickups, better known as the ďchicken tax.Ē
