I doubt Ford would be dumb enough to cancel the Ranger with out a replacement for it. There is still a market out there for a sub compact trucks not everybody wants a half ton or a one tone to do light yard work around the house. If anything Ford has a truck planned and designed and are just keeping a tight lid on it. These blogs are about as usefull as the ones claiming aliens exist. If anything we might get one that looks like an F-150 or that ugly Thailand looking truck.

no they said the new ranger is almost as big as an F150, and that the compact truck market in the US is small and getting smaller, so they are making the next F150, which is what everybody buys, better and more fuel efficient. Basically, if Ford were to sell the new Ranger here, they might as well call it an F100. Maybe in time thats what they might do, who knows.

believe it...I have a friend that works for Ford in the info area and she said that the Ranger is dead also after the 2011 production run. Just like the story said, If the market has an f150 there will be no Ranger. I did here some coo shit about the Rapture though but we're not talking about that in the forum, This is a Ranger forum. lol

Thats because Ford knows people will pay for it thats like why buy an F-250 when you can get an F-350 for an extra couple of grand. The sub compact market won't go away people still buy the small trucks for light yard work or light moving. Why buy an F-150 to to trim a small tree when you can use a Ranger to hall the branches.

I agree with you, if Ford drops the small truck, they are shooting them self in the foot.

I have NO need for a full size F150, the Ranger is perfect for my needs, and it fits in my garage. A neighbor got himself a new F150, and he had to put smaller tires for it fit in the garage! LOL

i highly doubt they are ending one of their best selling lines....

i'm not gonna hold my breath....they've been saying its dead for over 3 years now

i'll believe it when i see it

and if they do terminate the Ranger.....it will be one of their biggest mistakes, right next to the Edsel and trying to glorify the Taurus in Robocop

That's almost exactly what was said in an article. It was something like "a replacement would be the fiesta or the transit connect." a tiny car or a van IS NOT a replacement for a small truck. Ford needs to realize that not everyone needs an F-150! I love those trucks as well but my ranger has always got the job done at the end of the day.

Indeed. If Ford ever did develop this train of thought it wouldn't surprise me if they kept the 4 banger ranger on the market.

Why are you hating Ford? All we're reading is some bloggers opinion on why they think Ford might eventually do something.
