Got mine new this past June for $15,200 with the rebates. Too good of a deal with the XLT options, and the gas mileage. Sticker was $19,900 and yeah, they had to go find an XLT with a 2.3/stick. 9,000 miles and love it.

Got mine brand new at the end of 2006. It was stickered at over $25,000. The sales dude came back to the table with the sales manager with the deal at about $17,400.
My first, very own brand new truck! - and I was 45!!!

i would never pay full price for a ranger thats just stupid. 20k for a ranger is just stupid. In 3 years there worth 10k+ less then from day one. Or more. I would only buy a f150 new or a tacoma. Thats just my honest opinion. Can't see my self buying anything else new then those 2 trucks. I could never spend over 20k for a ranger. After that its not worth it i rather buy a tacoma then. There just a better truck anyways. Not trying to dog ford but they are. Plus there resale value kicks the ranger's ass.

it is not stupid, its only stupid if u get it new and dont end up keeping it. New u know all history u get a warranty and all rebates. my 2010 ranger was actually lower price wise than an 09 with 37 thousand miles with same options. thats because new vehicles have rebates.

Plus interest rates are higher. 2011 has so many more goodies that 2007 doesn't have which is a bonus. Why would pay 355 a month for 2007 ranger with manual windows, mirrors, etc with 30,000 kms and has the 3L when I can have my truck for 400 a month and its exactly the way I want it. So the resale value sucks, I am sorry, I am not in the used cars business I bought my truck considering the value to me not to other . I love my truck, I don't justify paying 40,000 for a Taco or even 35,000 for a frontier that is just as loaded. Buying import when it seems their reliability record has been in shambles for some doesn't make sense to me especially when my truck would end up costing me what I almost make in year. I would like a Crew Cab Taco that's manual but at that price not going to happen. Viva la Rangers

Yotas usually compare their 40k tacomas to our 30k rangers, and they boast that their trucks are worth more in the long run.

Of course, they also don't take into account the higher interest rates they have to pay (ford is currently @ 0% and toyota 3.9% or 4.9% for 5 years here) and aggressive incentives ford offers on the ranger versus the occasional 1000-2500$ from toyota.

My son has a Tacoma. You can't compare the two. The Taco is a midsized truck, like the Frontier. The Taco does cost more and it should, its more truck, but NOT that much more. Above posts are right, the Tacos are a LOTTTTTTT more money. I wanted a SMALL truck, don't need or want a mid or BIG truck. I got out of an 08 Frontier. Nice truck, but a best of 22 mpg I can just about get out of a full size truck. My sons 4 cyl Taco only returned 22 mpg highway on a trip we made, Oh, and dont sit on the tailgate, it will buckle.

I bought a 98 new and drove it 7 years after paying it off in 4. I just bought an 04 used and paid cash for it last month. If paying cash its usually better to buy used if you can find one you want. If your having to finance many times you can go new for about the same money because of the financing.

For me I will never have a car payment again unless its at 0% and I have the cash sitting in the bank to pay off the loan at any time.

2007 FX4's around here are still selling for 16-18,000 depending on mileage.. So I'd say a brand new one for $19,700 is a steaaaaaaaaaaaaal.
