The Blue Oval has just announced that world premiere for the new 2012 Ford Ranger will take place at the 2010 Australian International Motor Show, on October 15th.
The redesigned Ford Ranger has been developed in Australia and will be available in 180 markets worldwide, as the new pick-up truck is part of the automaker’s ONE Ford strategy for global products.
At this point this 2012 Ford Ranger teaser reveals the front gille, without giving the possibility of making an impression on the overall aspect, so at this point we only know that the new facelift version is going to have a ‘contemporary design’. 
No details regarding powering options either, expect for the fact that the 2012 Ford Ranger will boost increased performance and power.
The 2012 Ford Ranger will also get announced at a later date, so stay tuned for more official details at the time of the show.
Ford press release :
SYDNEY, September 20, 2010 – Ford is preparing to
take the wraps off a comprehensively redesigned, new-generation compact
pickup developed in Australia for sale in 180 global markets. The
worldwide premiere of the all-new Ford Ranger is certain to be the big
news of this year’s Australian International Motor Show, where it will
be unveiled on October 15, 2010.
The all-new Ranger is the latest in a wave of global products driven
by the ONE Ford strategy. Designed and engineered at Ford’s
Campbellfield product development and Geelong proving ground facilities,
and based on a new global compact truck platform, Ranger has been
transformed to assert true pickup truck leadership.
“Australia has played a leading role in the development of this
latest global Ford product,” said Joe Hinrichs, president, Ford Asia
Pacific and Africa. “Ranger is symbolic of how our great product
development capability is being leveraged by the ONE Ford plan like
never before.”
The taut, toned new design of the all-new Ford Ranger establishes a
powerful presence on the motor show stage. It will be the first time for
the public to see the next-generation Ford compact pickup without its
New Ranger prototypes – disguised under heavy black padding, tape and
decals to obscure their true identity – have been shot by automotive
spy photographers all over the world, as development units clocked more
than 1 million kilometres of testing in the toughest conditions, from
the Outback to the deserts of the Middle East to the Alps in Europe.
Now, under the lights at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre,
the covers will come off to reveal a dazzlingly contemporary new look
for the future of Ford Ranger pickup truck capability. It makes a
powerful promise – backed by Ford’s Australian and global expertise – to
owners around the world. 
From impressive gains in power and fuel economy – the result of its
new engine family – to outstanding pickup truck capability that includes
exceptional towing and payload capacity, the next-generation Ford
Ranger emerges as a clear segment leader. It not only builds on the
tremendous Ranger heritage of capability, but it also gives owners a
spacious, comfortable, feature-filled interior and sophisticated driving
experience that they would expect only from a car.
The wait is over: Introducing the hot Ford Focus RS
There’s even more big news from Ford at the show, which marks the introduction in Australia of the renowned Focus RS. 
The buzz of excitement surrounding Focus RS has been growing since
Ford announced recently that it would be offering a limited number of
the legendary hot hatch for sale in Australia. 
With only 315 Focus RS models being made available to the clamouring
enthusiast community, the Sydney show may be the best place to lay eyes
on one. First introduced in Europe last year, Focus RS has won a host of
motoring awards and widespread critical acclaim for its outstanding
combination of high-performance road car technology and everyday Focus
“The show will be a great opportunity to see the car that’s set to
spawn a whole new generation of performance car enthusiasts,” said Marin
Burela, president and CEO, Ford Australia. 
The hot-performing three-door hatch boasts a turbocharged
five-cylinder engine that develops near V8 performance levels with 224
kW (305 PS) of power and 440 Nm of torque.
Blowing the covers off the new GT
The Ford performance story will also continue at the show, with Ford
Performance Vehicles (FPV) launching its first-ever supercharged V8
engine to be fitted to its hero GT and new GS model ranges.
The new engine is based on the lightweight Mustang V8 but has been developed locally for FPV’s Falcon-based performance models.
FPV’s supercharged models join its turbocharged six-cylinder F6 range
in Australia’s most respected high-performance model lineup.
Ford Fiesta range to expand
Visitors to the Australian International Motor Show will see the debut
of the newest members of the Ford Fiesta range, with the new Fiesta
sedan and diesel models making their appearance.
Available in both diesel and petrol versions, the four-door model
will add to Ford’s successful Fiesta range and is expected to introduce
even more new customers to the Fiesta lineup.
“Fiesta has been extremely successful in Australia,” said Burela.
“Since its launch in early 2009, Ford’s share of the light car segment
has grown from 4.7 percent to 8.3 percent. We fully expect that the new
sedan and diesel variants will attract even more new customers to the
Fiesta range, along with the availability of the new 1.6-litre
PowerShift automatic transmission.”
Visitors to the 2010 Australian International Motor Show can
experience the exciting lineup of Ford vehicles, along with a host of
interactive activities for motoring enthusiasts and families, from
October 15-24 at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre.
