Ford Ranger vs. Mazda B-Series

My impression is that the Mazda B-Series pickups are essentially rebadged Rangers. Is this actually the case? Are the main mechanical components of a Mazda B-Series repairable at a Ford dealership?

Re: Ford Ranger vs. Mazda B-Series

Didn't you know that Ford own's a large share of Mazda?

When in doubt :DON'T

I did know that, however I wasn't clear on how much mechanical similarities there are between the two trucks.

The two trucks are built on the same assembly lines in Edison, New Jersey. Aside from badges and trim, they are identical trucks.

Ford owns about 1/3 of Mazda, but that doesn't mean that products need to be shared between them.
