Amen. My grandfather taught me that trucks were meant to be two doors and a long bed. That being said, he'd probably roll over in the grave if he knew I bought a Ford. If I wanted to haul people around instead of junk, I would have gotten a car.

I've always wondered if people in the US could do that. That is one sharp truck (for a 4 door).

Here's a couple of my thoughts, for what they are worth:
1. The ranger, IMHO, is the best looking small truck on the market. I would have bought a Chevy if there small trucks didn't look stupid.
2. A diesel two door version would sell. I've had a diesel and loved it. They get better MPG (no telling what a two door diesel 4 banger would get), and there are some many people that have diesel trucks (at least in my area) because they get better than the gas versions. Ford would be the only people selling small trucks with diesel engines in the USA. A lot of construction companies (again, at least in my area) would buy those up.
3. They could tweak with the style, but I agree also with not wanting a truck that looks like a plastic toy. Someone I know has a Frontier and I think it is the ugliest and worst truck to ride in.

Come on Ford, we need a small ranger diesel!

i completely disagree. who ever said you cant haul cargo and people at the same time. the fact that i can haul 5 people and pull/ carry 9000 pounds is pretty darn handy id say.


if i was in the market for another small truck and ford made a crew cab ranger (dont even say "well they make a sport trac" because IRS= Fail) i would buy one in a second. if a crew cab is what everyone wants why not give it to them?

i just wish ford would do some consumer research on style, wants,and needs before they just throw something out there..car manufacturers are really bad about that, they say they do, and to some extent they do, but not like they should!!

yeah I agree. ford missed out on a huge market and sales opportunity by neglecting the ranger and all those would-be's went and got tacos and frontiers and duhkotas and colorados/canyons.

btw, the new 150s are so ugly. For the first time since 1996, the Silverado is better looking than the F150

if they make a crew cab in a level II trim, I'll be the first one in line. They seriously need to drop the whole torsion bar setup too. go with coilovers like every other truck
