Cars are always more expensive in Australia than most other countries for one reason or another. Looking at the top tier model, it may seem like a lot to us and we'd probably look elsewhere in that case, but to Aussies it may be average.

Can't believe there is nearly a $30k difference between the base model and top line variant. And despite the higher prices they are paying in AUS, at least they are being offered a manual gearbox. Hopefully that means it'll become an option for NA consumers in the future.

That $30k difference accounts for more power with the Bi-Turbo and performance parts since it's a wildtrack. Would I pay that much for another trim when the base model is so much more affordable? No, but I'm sure someone would.

On the high end of the spectrum you're paying the same amount of money as you would for a half ton. Not something that I could easily justify. I do like the huge variety of trims powertrains however.

I'm sure that once Ford announces U.S pricing, we will see more realistic figures, but pickups across the segment have seen huge price jumps on the top end models. Automakers have justified this by saying that the base prices have been relatively unchanged.

Well with a lot more interest in luxury/premium options in trucks, this price jump was inevitable. It certainly doesn't seem too difficult to drop $70k on a new pickup, which was unheard of a decade ago.

The greatest perspective someone can pull into this is the fact that Toyota charges a lot for a somewhat analog truck, the Tacoma. If they can get away with that, what's stopping Ford with a better product?

I don't know if we can say the Ranger is a better product, at least not until we see delivery in North America. Though it may be more technologically advanced, long term reliability is a key factor for truck owners.

It will be better for now due to the fact that Tacoma is a product nearing the end of its cycle which to the new wave of pick up truck buyers, means a lot. Traditional pick up buyers might gravitate more towards the Toyota that should and will stand the test of time even years after the current gen has ended.
