F150s cost more...all around more than a ranger...it may get the same gas mileage...but everything from value to maintenance...
Of course u have a really heavy wallet....

Where I live (Seattle) dealers are asking more $ for Rangers than comparable F150's. I monitor Auto Trader for prices. So in this part of the U.S. the Ranger is priced higher. Law of supply and demand I suppose. 5 Year old Rangers are priced at $15k with 80k miles. I bought my 01 in 02 for $7800 and it only had 18k miles. Granted it is an xl /5 sp 2.5. I think they are asking rediculous prices for them.

Same in Northeast; I got mine last year for $4500 with 117k. Anything around here with 4WD started at 6 or 7. 2004 or newer and it jumped up to like 9-13,000

Meanwhile I could've got a 2003 F150 FX4 for around $6000. Shit I coulda got an 02 Corvette Indianapolis 500 edition (or something like that), 50k for $5500!!! Rangers definitely hold thier value in my area, and the lots I visitied said they couldn't even keep them for more than a week. I figure with the work I've done on mine both mod and upgrade/maintenance wise I should be able to sell mine for the same if not more than I paid for it. But who's selling right? haha

Asking price may be higher, but only fools pay sticker price.

Whenever you trade in your vehicle, you pay sticker price on your new purchase minus whatever the dealer thinks your trade is worth (which is usually $3k-$5k less than its dealer-resale-price).

You can't ask them to lower the price of their vehicle in a trade. What they do instead is raise the price of your trade if only slightly. It's up to you how you want to see it though.. whatever helps you sleep at night.
