I thought I would always be a GM guy, until the bailouts. Ford started impressing me with the retro-styled Mustang, what a way to bring back American Muscle. Then when Ford declined the bailouts, I said this was a company that still believes in the American Dream. With that said, I have heard rumors and seen spy shots of the new Ranger, I have to admit I am not impressed with it, even though it looks better than the Chevrolet Colorado. I think the New Ranger should look more like the F-150 or even the new Explorer. So I photo shopped the Explorer into a mid-size P/U. What do you think?

Welcome to FRF! I have to disagree with you on the ranger lookin like the f-150s though, I'm not a big fan of the look of the f-150s I hope they keep the ranger just the way it is.

I do not have a Ranger yet, wife needed a new car, so she got the 300 she wanted, I liked it at first, but not impressed with the performance. The interior looks cheap for a Chrysler too.

As far as the Ranger staying the way it is. The current model is nice, but sales are down, the truck over all has had the same body type since it was introduced. Sort of like the 55-57 Bel-Air, the skin and interior changed, but the platform was the same. I guess Ford feels the mid-size truck needs to be re-designed. Also, unfortunately our govt has laid out new fuel regulations for vehicles, so the Big Three have to meet those requirements.
I wish the Ranger would come out in a crew cab with at least a 6 ft bed. The prototype looks like it is going to follow the Chevy Colorado small crew cab with a 5 ft bed. Also offer a small V-8 with a performance package. I saw crew cab Rangers and S-10 over seas and found out they were made here, but exported. I called GM and asked why not sell them domestically, and they said, "because there's not a market for them in the US." Funny how there was never a market for the minivan, but Chrysler created one with the Caravan, not to mention the car itself. I mean if it was not for Ford inventing the assembly line an d making cars affordable, we'd still be riding horses....Let me stop...I agree the Current Ranger would be nice to keep, it still has the American muscle, I wish it would keep looking like it was born in America instead of looking "Global."

Welcome to FRF! I feel the same way about Ford not taking the bailout! I was not a big ford fan until then, but I'm glad I own my ranger now because I am absolutely in love with it!
