That could be cool, definitely post some pics when it happens. I think i am going to classic with my black ranger and simply add red accents (subtle touches)

Phase 1: Make the best Ranger with the brightest future by offering Crew Cab, a good looking exterior and interior and perhaps a diesel
Phase2:????
Phase 3 make a profit everywhere else in the world except one of the biggest automotive markets (North America)

They already had a crew cab ranger, it was called the Sport Trac. Nobody bought them.. Why would they make another?

An explorer with a 3 Ft. Bed is not crewcab Ranger, it's a ford quick fix to a lack of a crewcab

So if you're so much smarter than Ford, why aren't you manufacturing your own brand of vehicles and making billions?

damn, get over it!! ford was supposed to kill the ranger off in 2006 but it got a repreive. then another in 2009, now, in 2011 and it's officially dead. NONE of you are marketing experts who work for Ford, so don't tell us you know what the general public wants or needs. The sport trac died last year, the thunderbird has died and been reborn numerous times, The Taurus was born/died/reborn, the original Fiesta, became the escort, then the festiva, then the focus, then back to the fiesta. The Ranger had a great Run. Like all good things, it must come to an end. It's time to close the garage door on the Ford Ranger and let it rest in peace.

So I was told that the Ranger is being replaced by a F100! So go figure. One more rumor I guess! I bought my new 'used' 2008 yesterday and the first thing I noticed is how poor the ergonomics of the turn signal are! Too much lifting/pushing for the lane changer and bad 'click' to set it to hold. No wonder Toyotas get kudos. They engineer the most minute details instead of appearance decals...
