the ranger/bt50 is a completly different bit of gear to to the old courier/bravo pair the motors and gear boxes are far better.

we got a reanger as a response vehicle down at SES. its a great car to drive only flaw is the fuel consumption. we got auto turbo diesel and took it on a trip down to vic. it was only getting just over 400km a tank on the freeway.
mind you it had less then 1000kms when we went on the trip. the consumption could get better as it racks up the kms

it's going to be an interesting time when these things start to come out of warranty.

more boost, more fuel and upgraded intake and exhaust and these thing could be very fast.
