Default Is it true?

I just purchased a Ranger and really like it. I was told they were not going to sell the Ranger in the US after 2011? is this true. I would think with rising gas cost this would be a mistake. I would think more people would want a small truck.

Yep, it's true. The word on that has been going around for years. Hopefully it will make a comeback.

The Mazda USA web site doesn't even list the B series truck.

That website is crap...

The Mazda B-series in the US was last offered in 2009 and Canada got an update 2010 and there is no 2011 B-series on the Canadian Mazda website or available at any dealers.

I personally would rather NOT see the ranger make a come back. More likely than not, if it does make a come back, it will be completely redesigned and will be just something badged "ranger"

For me, I like the look of the ranger since '93. To vary off that style would just not be the same. Just like the taurus that came back, its just a name, not even close to the same car.

If the ranger does make a comeback, ford would be wise to copy the F-350 series styling and make a "mini" superduty. Those trucks look good and would make a ranger look badass!
