The 2019 New York International Auto Show is just around the corner, and Volkswagen will be displaying a concept version of a vehicle it says it doesn’t intend to bring to the United States market… at least not yet.

DETROIT—Ford unveiled the long-awaited 2019 version of its Ranger pickup truck at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
