Default Re: Ford Ranger Returning in 2019

I've never felt cramped in the Ranger, and most of mine have gotten 22 or so on the highway. Not counting the 3.0 I yanked because the heads were bad and had almost zero compression, of course. Ride quality was perfectly fine for a truck.

Well yes, a 20 year newer suspension design does help.

I could be wrong but the F150s have used the coilover set up since 2004, being updated along the way. torsion bars always have will ride like crap

all 4 of my F150s have either matched or beat the MPG, ride a hell of a lot nicer, lot more room, a lot more refined and more power. Especially my 2.7 in my 2018


4 new trucks in 7 years. Are you dumping them fast for a reason.......I haven't had any problems with my 2.
Both get exactly what the EPA sticker says.

Makes sense. My Ranger is perfect. It's paid for. And this year it has earned it;s keep. It has hauled easily 30-40 loads, donations, trash, and new building materials. And soon my move.

To be honest, I don't need or want anything else.

Beautiful truck. Just like new. --There were several others that I really liked. One with just 15000 miles but it was white and I wanted a black truck. If the find is many miles away you can take a flight out to it and enjoy a road trip back in your new ranger. Make an adventure out of it.
Way to go Lloyd.
