$1000 dollar incentive isnt nothing....it costs like $700 for a spark plug job in the new f150s so ford will get that $1000 and more back out of u from maintenance at dealerships.
yeah, its an easy fix, but its something you gotta fix........

and sure, they will make that money back, but you know whatm, getting $1,000 off is better than getting $0 off, or would you rather get $0 off?

meh, easier to just have it locked in all the time. no need to get out and switch it.

the MPG hit is barely anything at all. the added strength and reliability, ill take that (maybe) .5 mpg hit.

i get better MPG than many 98-00.5 trucks anyways. so arguing MPG is kinda silly.

Do we get an extra extra loyalty incentive if our rangers are older than '95? lol

Not to mention the Tacoma gets worse fuel economy than the Ranger....especially the V6.

People who buy brand new tacos are crazy imo. Or even used tacos. Way overpriced for what you get.

Id much rather have a f150 or silverado for the same price

No the newer rangers are not the exact same shit like i said my brother has an 05- the thing is way cheaper feeling, the metal used for the body is weaker- bends easier, and he's always having problems with his. His sohc engine was better than my ohv but now i have the 5.0 so all around i have a tougher faster truck than he does. i off road mine like crazy sometimes and he drives on the highway. and my 2000 doesn't have vacuum hubs, Our 96 was more reliable than his 05 and he had half of the miles on it.

Think? lol its feel man, even he agrees mine is tougher, and that 96 was a beast, we TRIED to break it. whoop sections on a motocross track, 10 ft of air, rolled it, sunk it, put a new cab on, still was going strong at 280k miles never changed the oil in the axles or transmission(which finally was the first thing to go)

This thread is full of people who don't work at Ford, don't know what Ford is doing next and 100% positively DOES NOT have enough money for a full-size truck.

Thanks for the entertainment before I hit they hay.
