I actually LOVE the changes they made on the 2011 Rangers, the REAL side mirrors, the hoods, all that good stuff... I know the hoods have been around and so have the mirrors possibly, but they were actually making them better and just stopped? How Ford-like... Ford never seemed to do anything senseful that I saw though so I guess that makes enough sense in itself that they would get rid of their best vehicle... bastards... lol

Ok, so that explains why they don't also have the f150.

It's a competition thing.

Here the f150's were selling like mad so they didn't (and still don't) want any Ranger sales to steal from that much more lucrative market.

If they bring the Ranger back its going to be an oversized cab with an afterthought/extra short bed, very busy interior, and above all else its gonna be ugly. I can just tell by looking at all the other new cars on the market, they all look like goddam spaceships lol

Those items were identical for many years.

Outside of the government mandated safety changes, it received essentially only cosmetic changes in 2004 & 2006 and that's about it.

Boring and stale platform that Ford and time forgot about. lol

Yeah ford makes more $$$ off f150's than rangers anyway so why not make everyone buy a fullsize to make more money even it it's not what the people want

I would bet. There are petitions for everything. No matter how far fetched or stupid. lol

I saw a petition to force our government to fully fund and construct a working Death Star.

Yes, the Death Star from Star Wars.

Complete with estimated costs and required timelines.

Some people...lol
