Ford Falcon returns

0

Ford made jeeps (lowercase, name not yet trademarked) during WWII, but hasn’t been in the two-door, back to basics off-road game since it let the Bronco die on the leaf some years ago. Then in 2007 it bought a small Brazilian truck company called Troller, which builds exactly that sort of thing. The all-new T4 is the fruit of that relationship, and it was worth the wait. It has a composite body on a steel frame, two live axles with sway bar disconnect, a snorkel ready air intake and – take a deep breath, truck nerds — is powered by the 3.2-liter inline-5-cylinder turbodiesel engine used by the latest not-for-U.S.-sale Ford Ranger, plus a six speed stick. Unfortunately, despite it’s obvious ability to drive from its factory in the city of Horizonte straight through the Amazon rainforest to the USA, that’s one trip the T4 won’t be making anytime soon
