We're not quite sure yet whether the spyshots we are showing you here will do anything to satisfy your craving for the next generation Ranger because as you can see, the unforgiving camo wrapping the car lets little skin visible to the naked eye.

To be built on the next-generation “T6” global platform, the new Ranger will be marketed outside North America starting 2011 as well. According to the limited information available, the Ranger will pack under its hood a wide range of engines, both re-tweaked versions of the existing ones and brand new units.

With the knowledge that all engine will be four-cylinders in mind, we can tell you the diesel offering will include the 3.2l and 2.2l Duratorq TDCi common-rail units, while the petrol range will comprise a naturally aspirated 2.5l Duratec and a 2.0-litre EcoBoost. The units will be paired with either a 6-speed manual or an automatic transmission.

Visually, as you can see for yourselves, there's not much we can tell you. The interior of the vehicle however is rumored to be of a less red-neck feature, with the dials and dash built similar to the ones seen on the 2011 Ford Fiesta and Focus.

The 2012 Ford Ranger is also said to be longer and wider in comparison to the current version. It will probably feature revised headlights, rear lights cluster, a new front grille and a re-designed hood.

As for the US market, the current generation Ranger will end production in 2011. Rumor goes the model will be replaced all together with a more efficient version of the F-150 pickup truck.
