Know More About the Ford Courier
If we take a look back, actually the “Ford Courier” was already used by Ford since the early 1950s. At that time, Sedan variants used that nameplate to answer the US’s mainstream vehicle market. But, in the early 1970s, Mazda manufactured a compacted pickup and the Ford Courier became the nameplate.
Even though the vehicle was from Mazda, Ford Motor who sold them to the public. Seeing the success in the market, this moment became the beginning of “Ford Courier” on a pickup vehicle. Started for the second generation in early 1977, finally, Ford produced a fresh look by changing the style and increasing the size.
Until its fourth generation, Ford Motor kept improving their pickup trucks. But, the “Ford Courier” nameplate was only for Australia and New Zealand market. It was because Ranger trucks have replaced all Courier pickups, whether produced by Mazda or Ford itself. In 2003, Ford released the SUV car based on the Courier concept, but it was only for Asia and Central American. And now, the good news comes to you that the 2021 Ford Courier will be released soon.
