Ford always seems to be cooking something for its customers. And recently, Ford North America Product Communications Manager Mike Levine teased more of what the brand has in store.

In a series of tweets, Levine mentioned the Blue Oval is soon revealing big news concerning its trucks, particularly the Ranger lineup.

Rumors instantly spread among car enthusiasts that the Ranger could possibly be getting a diesel engine in the United States. The engine is expected to be a version of the 2.0-liter turbodiesel from Europe which makes 130 horsepower with a single turbo (or up to 210 horsepower with two turbos). The powertrain is currently being offered with a six-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic.

In a series of tweets, Ford North America Product Communications Manager Mike Levine mentioned the company will soon reveal big news concerning its trucks, particularly the Ranger lineup.

If Ford America does introduce a diesel Ranger, the model will become an even tougher competition for its segment rivals in the Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, and the upcoming Jeep Gladiator variant.

But other than the possibility of a diesel Ranger, there is also a chance that Ford will introduce a small truck or possibly a two-door, regular cab version of the Ranger.

Part of Levine’s statement goes, “if you like small trucks, you won’t be disappointed.”

A smaller Ranger is not far from reality as Ford already offers the SuperCab body with two doors and four seats. But since the second row does not offer much space, removing the it could allow a longer bed to fit without changing the model’s body length.

Or if it completely has nothing to do with the Ranger, Ford could also be announcing something related to the company’s new pickup truck based on the Ford Focus.
