Default Sent Ford an Email about Ranger Fate and Duplicate window sticker.

Well I was curious to find out about getting a duplicate window sticker for my truck as well as I put in a comment about the Ranger phase out while I was at it and here was my response.

Quote:
Dear Ben,

Thank you for contacting the Ford Motor Company Customer Relationship Center regarding your 2004 Ford Ranger duplicate window sticker request.

Window stickers for all vehicles are generated at the assembly plant. If you are the original owner of the vehicle, you may contact your original selling dealership to request a copy of the window sticker. However, just to let you know, with this changes in our product line-up, Ford Motor Company will continue investing in and further growing our Ford F-Series line-up with new powertrains and improved performance.

For the 2011 model year, the Ford F-150 features four new truck engines and a new six-speed transmission that will deliver best-in-class towing and horsepower. In addition, the entire 2011 Ford F-150 lineup will be at least 20 percent more fuel-efficient that today's Ford F-150 lineup. This is the most extensive power overhaul in Ford F-150's history.

Moreover, we have the 2011 Ford F-150 XLT custom package with the all-new 3.7-liter V6 engine aimed at the entry-level personal use buyer. This new Ford F-150 series will be ideal for Ford Ranger owners interested in a pickup. For Ford Ranger customers interested more in affordable transportation than an entry-level truck, we now either have or soon will offer many new affordable vehicles including the Ford Fiesta, Focus, 7-passenger Grand C-Max and the Ford Transit Connect.

While we are unable to comment on our future product plans, rest assured Ford will continue to offer our customers products that will deliver the kind of utility and capability you've come to expect from Ford.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to let us know how you feel about the conclusion of the Ford Ranger's product line-up.

If you have any other inquiries, please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to address them for you.

Sincerely,
Carlo
Customer Relationship Center
Ford Motor Company

They really don't get that big trucks aren't going to be small regardless how good the mileage is... oh well the market will show them.

We obviously dont own rangers for their excellent fuel mileage. We buy them for size. Even a 4wd reg cab short bed still is to long and wide to wheel and for the mini truck crowd they are too big

I believe the Ford Ranger will be like what happened with the Taurus. They phased out the Taurus in favor of the Ford Five Hundred. They then saw people turn away from it. So they re-badged the five hundred with a Taurus logo and people came back.

It would have been nice if all they did was slightly update the interior a little more, A new Chassis and put the new 3.7 with the option of 6 speed manual or auto tranny to improve performance and economy. Eat your heart Dakota and Canyons/Colorados

Ford does not give two shits what we think. They are like old people. Once they believe something you can't convince them otherwise. See even though it might get the same mpg's people won't latch on to it. When you see a compact truck what goes through your head? Better mpg's right. People won't latch on to the 3.7 like they do the ranger. They will just send some loyal customers to Toyota, General Motors, Chrystler, and Nissan. The Ranger if gone will make a comeback I believe.

One other thing. We all know if they do come out with the 3.7 it will be stock as hell. We won't have any trim packages to choose from, like the edge, xlt, and others. It is gonna be a long wheel based single cab pos.

Lol I had no Idea the 3.7 was problematic, Maybe give the 4.0 a power boost to like 220 or 230HP and like 250 Lb Ft and a 6 Speed and I would be happy. The interior is ok except the Center Console, The Stereo with the Vents on top look something like if it was out Chevy Celebrity or something. And is it just me but even for 4 speakers, the sound systems sucks something fierce

Car/truck models live and die. it's a fact of life. In fact, for the Ranger to have lasted from July 1982 (as an 1983 model) until 2011, is pretty impressive. Please don't be upset with Ford, but think of this as a way to explore diferent truck manufacturers.

I lost my faith in Ford a long time ago. If I ever have the money to buy a new truck, it won't be a Ford truck.

Car part stores all have them here (carquest/uap napa/etc..), they'll just move on to the cheaper mid-size truck, since the class will be gone, i guess.
