4 full doors is what the public wants in a Ranger. it'll help compete with the Nissan Frontier, Toyota tacoma, Chevrolet Colorado, Dodge Dakota

I wish they would stop turning trucks into passenger vehicles.

yeah but please make it look good. i think all the new trucks are ugly with all the bulky plastic body styles, weird angles and rounded bubble crap. trucks are supose to be tough not gay like a prius.... ok i like the prius but i dont want my truck to look like one

People cant afford to take 2 vehicles anymore. Gas is too much. So you can fill up the bed with stuff AND everyone pile in the cab when you go to the lake or something....Instead of having someone follow the truck thats hauling all the goodies.

i agree with everyone. i like the simple look of the ranger. the only way i would accept the concept of a 4 door ranger would be if they brought up the one from mexico. but even then eh.

Wasn't the first pic from a series of spy pics a couple years ago? People made all kinds of threads only to realize it was europe's version of the ranger.

But seriously, the day they change the ranger to a full 4 doors is the day compact pickups die, since the ranger is the only one of its class in us-canada's market.

What people like in a ranger is usually its size (ie: company trucks), those who want a bigger truck like a tacoma/colorado/frontier/other mid-sized could opt for a F150. While being bigger, they are in the same price range.

you're right, I can tell.
The four doors and the 2 doors have the same engines.
Duratec 2.3L Gasoline and Powerstroke 3.0L Diesel

Down here Ford made come "face lifting" but I found it terrible.




And, from Ford's site:
Four doors:

Two doors:
