I never claimed that I had done more research then ford. I just looked up the numbers because someone on this thread required it. Too bad you dont have as much passion to defend the rangers as you do to prove your point, perhaps Ford wouldn't cancel the Rangers if we were more passionate about them

weve known for a few years now that the ranger is getting the ax, its been discussed to no end multiple times here, it always turns into the same discussion every time. its tiresome to keep seeing the same topic with the same content re-posted constantly......hmm, thats gives me an idea.......

I guess we just have to except that there are different perspectives with different people, and not all of them we can agree with. I think that the best way to stop beating a dead horse

Lol, I always find it funny to watch people argue over something that is evident. Maybe somebody should start a forum just for discussing the fate of the Ranger.

lol i don't think it would see an end even in the 3000 even when Fry and Bender are roaming the planet lol, I think these threads just keep proving that lol. How about we discuss why the wipers on a ranger give an extra wipe when you use the windshield washer fluid lol

just buy a 150 and get over it, i bought one, love it, still have my ranger and still love it aswell. i dont care that they are getting rid of the ranger because i already have the ranger that i want. f150 gets the same mpg, i average 15 mpg highway with the 5.4 and have a crew cab, 4x4, 5.4L loads of power

I has an F150. It just so happens to also carry a Ranger nameplate. It's the best of both worlds!

Unfortunately the F150 doesnt come manual anymore, So i am unsold on that Idea, I was lucky to buy the last of the rangers the way I wanted it.

They haven't changed the F150 much since 04, so depending on your year, you won't have much of a problem.

I plan to swap a manual into my Ranger when the auto goes at around 120,000. I like how i'm so intent on that mileage.lol.
