#2 Worked for me, a bit heavy on hype, and damn few details, I'd class it as a second rate commercial.

#5 Ranger is a recce. I would guess the weaponized version would use a F-150 engine.

#6 Ford's engine is a small (2 liter) 4 cylinder without much power.

They use two.

#7 We are on our second Ford Ranger and they have hauled us all over New York City, the US and Canada for ten years now without missing a beat, so- go you good thing!

#9 sounds like the 2.0 liter originally in the Mustang II and Pinto. Good basic engines.

(must resist relating another Boeing automotive parts use, the Volt battery in the DreamFryer)
