The article comes from CarBuzz, which as sources go, is typically as reliable as a chocolate teapot. But apparently the original rumor comes from Automobole Magazine (yes, people still buy magazines in 2018), and thy say Ford is building a compact pickup based on the new Focus platform. And it’s coming to the US!
It’ll be awesome to have another pickup that’s the same size as the original Ranger. I like being able to park a pickup without doing a 27-point turn.
