Troller T4 Trail is Ford of Brazil's answer to the Jeep Wrangler

Owned by Ford, this South American SUV has an elemental charm rivaled only by Jeep's iconic off-roader.

This is the new Troller T4 Trail from Ford.

Priced from the equivalent of just under $38,000, the new Troller T4 Trail packs upgraded bumpers with winch prep, big fender flares, skid plates and a snorkel.

This is an even-more-hardcore off-road version of the second-generation Troller T4 that has been on sale in Brazil since the 2015 model year.

From hereon out, you're looking at pictures of the second-gen Troller T4 from its 2014 São Paulo International Motor Show debut. 

The rest of the vehicle hasn't changed much since that time.

If you're not familiar with the Troller name, it was a small independent SUV manufacturer that Ford purchased over a decade ago.

This cabin shot is of the 2015 Troller T4, but it's not expected to have changed much from the new T4 Trail version.

The Troller T4 is perhaps best thought of as Brazil's answer to the Ford Bronco, though the T4 and the forthcoming Blue Oval SUV revival have nothing in common.

The Troller T4's tidy footprint and short overhangs make for solid off-road action.

The Troller T4 is powered by Ford's 3.2-liter Duratorq diesel five-cylinder, matched to a six-speed manual gearbox.

No, you can't buy one in the US, sorry.

Yep, it really does have a manual transmission, remember those?

The non-Trail Troller T4 still looks pretty beefy.

Believe it or not, the Troller T4 rocks a composite body -- just like a Chevy Corvette.

Ford says the Troller T4's engine is good for 200 hp, but it isn't citing torque figures. 

In the US-spec Ford Transit Powerstroke with the same-size engine in the same configuration, Ford's commercial van generates 350 pound-feet of torque.

No, Ford will never sell this SUV in the US, as it probably can't meet federal requirements for emissions and crash-testing, among other regulatory hurdles.
