My school uses rangers as grounds department trucks along with a couple f250s and a lot of company's around where I live use them as work trucks

They just figured us rich Americans would just stay loyal to Ford and buy an F-Shity.

Just saying the 2012+ rangers are pretty much full sized... they're worthless. Do they still make s10s

You know what we should do as Ranger owners, we should all create a petition or call the main headquarters of Ford and demand that the ranger be built here in the us and provide evidence that the ranger is widely used and popular and maybe, just maybe they will bring it back, course this is just a thought

Default Re: You Know You Drive a Ranger When.....

It was a neglected & outdated platform from Ford since like 2004. Clearly the didn't care about it. They don't just wakeup and kill a vehicle line overnight. It takes years and years of planning.

I don't want it back if they will have it stuck in a time machine like it was. Its best they killed it given how it was treated.

All this petition talk failed five years ago, and will fail now.

Five years ago? They killed it 2 years ago. And let's not forget the economy 5 years ago...

lol I'm well aware of when they killed it. I've been part of the online Ranger community since 2003.

That's when it was killed, but rumored, debated and announced long before.

You are all acting like this is new news or something??

These threads were all the rage back then... they don't care.
