Actually... it should read: MADE in THAILAND, and why would you be surprised that it looks like the BT50, same model, same internals, just that Southern sales doesnt bring down auto pickups in the mazda, Might even be the same assembly factory....

BTW, yuh dont find it looking like ah WINGLE

^^ we already know they're essentially the same pickup.... which has been the case for Ford/Mazda pickups since the Courier and B-Series of the 1970s. However, the Rangers and BT50 had different styling, esp at the front end, with the Ranger having a more square, aggressive look. With this new model, its more closely related to the current BT50 look, which isn't bad, but it means both are more anonymous looking.

And NO... it doesn't look like a Wingle!! Even if it did, your statement should be the other way around, because the Wingle is a knock off the Isuzu D-Max, with a VW concept front end (we all know the Chinese stuff are always knock-offs)... so a Wingle would always be the one to look like something else... get it :wink:
