This isn't a debate on the future of the ranger.

It was manufactured last month.

what about the L/S?
If a truck was built in November 2005 and the truck is gonna be labeled as a 2006 they will put the equipment changes on it even though it is built in 05.

Just providing you with info I have read from ford. They are rebadging all unsold 2010 ford rangers and marking them as 2011.

You talking about an 06 model built in 05 which is normal.

I'm talking about an 11 that was built last month that I had built to order.

They aren't going to peel the old manufacture date off and replace it with the new sticker and THEN tear the rear end apart to add L/S

riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.. because thats how legit companies do business.

why do you care if it is a rebadged 2010?
and for your info, they took your truck stuck an L/S on it, then shipped it to you.
do you know how a company that is ceasing operations works?? It doesn't buy or make any more product. it uses up all it's current inventory. to save money on orders, it waits until it's order bill is filled and then ships the supplies out.
I hate people who have no clue on how a business works.

Same way engine remanufactures work. When they launch a new product they buy NEW engines from OEM and repaint them and put their label on them. It is called reclassing

I don't
but it's not.

I hate people who think they know everything. If it was manufactured in 2010 the sticker would say 2010.

You love making comparisons that don't relate to the issue at hand in any fashion.

Just saying many companies do it. Yes ford lied to you and sold you a rebadged 2010. It's finally assembly yes was 2011 when it was probably stuck with a vin number.

I just picked up the telephone and called the plant.

They are still building trucks.

You're wrong. The end.

You are the most arrogant asshat ive ever seen on this forum. Seriously. What are you 12? Grow up and learn something.
your "infinite knowledge" is what makes this forum, and threads go downhill.

Mykhael, its a 2011 if the 10th digit is a "B" in the VIN. IIRC

You cannot "rebadge" a VIN. It is engraved in the truck in many places.
