In some parts of the world, especially in North America, pickup trucks are highly respected. Small trucks, such as the Ford Ranchero and Chevrolet El Camino, were once the main vehicles for residents of US suburbs.

Currently, there are no such small trucks. Even the current version of the American pickup Ford Ranger, which is positioned by the manufacturer as a compact pickup, has long been similar in size to the full-size F-150 of the 1990s. Despite the fact that the initial price for a modern Ford Ranger is $ 25,000, the car did not receive many advanced security systems and a wide list of options.

It is possible that the popularity of small pickups will be back soon.

For example, in recent months, they again started talking about the concept of a small Santa Cruz truck from the South Korean Hyundai, there is also information that Volkswagen has plans to create such a car.

It is reported that soon a small pickup from the American brand Ford will be presented. Rumors about this “go” on the network for quite some time. Judging by the “spy” photos, Ford engineers have already begun testing their new pickup truck, which is based on the Focus model. I note that the observed car is very heavily camouflaged – apparently this is its first races.

Given the fact that some markets really need small, thrifty, practical, and preferably affordable trucks, then why not. Residents of these countries are very fond of pickups of all shapes, sizes and colors – so these cars will definitely appeal to them.
