Edit: it was the exhaust brake option. The total MSRP was $35,090.
I want an extended cab, long box, 2wd diesel with an MT, must be impossible.

Since the ones fitted with manual transmission have a lower torque rating, I'd rather get an automatic.

I still rather have a manual, even if FWD only.

FWD? But the 2WD versions are still RWD. Anyway, if the manual versions had the same torque rating of the automatic I'd probably also prefer a manual. BTW it really bothers me that Chevy has distinct torque ratings for manual and automatic, while Ford offers the Ranger with the same torque rating for both transmission options.

In the US there is no manual version so the torque rating is meaningless, unless I cludge in an NV3500

And in many other markets, manual transmission still outnumbers the automatic. It's a shame they won't even offer it in the US not even as an option...
