Spy photographs show the car in production metal for the first time though it’s camouflaged in confusing black/white paint.

'AN SUV BENCHMARK'

Ford replaced the Ranger bakkie’s leaf-spring rear suspension with a coil-sprung set-up.

According to Ford, the new model will "set an SUV benchmark" while delivering "great off-road capability and toughness".

The Ranger SUV will be unveiled in the second half of 2014. Unfortunately, Ford has no plans to sell it in South Africa.
