Too afraid it would hurt f1shity sales.
you also have to remember that foreign markets dont have the fullsize market like the US does so the ranger can be bigger over there

Yes i know....and still a shitty reason for not offering more ranger options in the US..
If customers and ranger buyers (potential buyers) want more options then give them more options and keep sales up. But they want someone who wants to buy a ranger to buy an f150...but more then likely a buyer wanting a small pickup is just going to go to the competiton.

its not just ford that axed the small trucks...dodge did it too..for the same reason as ford...declining sales...why build a truck only for it not to sell? and hell the dakota was even a midsize truck with a crew cab and v8 option and it barely sold...even look at nissan and toyota sales...they sell more fullsizes than midsizes

Emission standards may very well be lower in other countries, but the price of fuel is so much higher that for a vehicle to sell at all, they have to make it more efficient.

Plus, I know in England there's a 'gas guzzler' tax. I learned that from Top Gear.

Basically every thing I know about the UK that's worth knowing, I learned from Top Gear.
