    Great find! He launches it at 8:40 & 12:45, so you can really hear the turbo engine noise.

    He’s a bit too chatty for my taste, but this is the first “real” extended test drive ever.

    Decent "real" test drive, like danger stated. No comments on tranny shifting, throttle response but several on turbo windup.

    Wish the Ford rep would drive that Ranger to Ft. Lauderdale and do a drive event here.

    They will be in Orlando in a couple of weeks. I know that is a far cry from Ft Lauderdale, but only a few hours away..

    I know, as well as one in the Tampa area. Prior commitments are keeping me from attending either. Bummer.

    I just noticed in the video that this truck has an old style key for the ignition. I wonder why?

    Pre-production vehicle maybe? I believe it’s supposed to have the flip type key with integrated lock/unlock features.

    Thanks. I haven't had a car that used a key in a long time and was surprised Ford used a key for the Ranger.

    Looks like that is at Wild Horse Pass in Arizona. I guess that makes sense since I had a dealership email me back saying he came back from driving one
