A thing that is being downsized, at least if I were to buy one.

This is a Ford Ranger. The knowledgeable will note one of Ford’s favourite reversible numbers., which reads either UYM 810 or 018 MYU depending on how you orientate the image.

Until now my local Ford dealer has sold these with a 2.2 four or (less commonly) a 3.2 five, both diesel naturally.

From now on the only choice will be Mr Ford’s new Eco Blue 2.0 four with different power outputs and a second turbo by way of replacement for the 3.2. On the other hand, automatic fans will get ten rather than six gears so there’s that.
