I assume he means Mazda instead of Nissan, but he's still wrong, I think.
The 96 Ranger is 100% Ford. The engine is a Ford engine. Even the Mazda
trucks of that era are 100% Ford except the badging.
The only exception, I think, is the 5 speed manual Mazda transmission that's
in both Ford and Mazda versions.
That's the way I understand it, anyway.
