I said bring back a mid size truck (a real mid size, not those 80% of a full size truck that they call mid size), that gets that kinda mileage. I didn't say a mid size truck ever got those kinda numbers, I'm saying they should though.

What's out now is a real midsize, the rangers were not a midsize

Times change. Still don't like the apparent size of the new, upcoming Ranger but the wife and I have started talking about buying some form of camping trailer... i.e. pop-up style either canvas or hard-sided model (hard side more expensive but I personally like them better.) This means probably around 5000# behind the truck and I'm not so sure my 2.3L dual-ignition model has the grunt to drag one of these around and I absolutely refuse to go full size for such a small, lightweight (by comparison) trailer. Can't really get any enthusiasm for a slide-in camper either, though my mind could be changed. I saw too many of the older type that grossly weighted down the bed and unbalanced the trucks carrying them. (Owner's fault for buying more than the truck was built to handle.) I'd rather tow and I will admit the new Ranger at least looks better than most of the competition.

I'm not impressed by the pictures I've seen of the upcoming 2019 Ranger. I don't really like the design. If I buy another mid-size truck it'll probably be a used 2011 Ranger, if I can find one with low mileage at a fair price.
