Default What do you want in a vehicle?

I know Ford is killing the Ranger, as well as they have killed many other awesome cars, as have many of the other major car brands. Also today, at least for me, I don't feel like manufacturer's are listening to everything the general public wants.

What I want to know, if you could make a vehicle, what would you have in it? What would make it ideal for you? List out anything, hell you want 13 cup holders, say it! I don't care, what do you want in a vehicle, as a factory option!?

This is what I want in a vehicle. Turbo diesel around a 4.0-5.0. 6spd manual trans. 4 full doors. Blue led lighing for everything, speedo, knobs, radio. Shit can the green and go with blue. I would want these in a ranger sized pickup as I dont want a fullsize truck.

i would keep the ranger, with a face lift, maybe some 1 piece headlights, but make it like a mini f150 like the headlights look the same but smaller, etc, navigation option, prem. sound, engine options should be a small ecoboost, maybe 4 cyl, and a small block v8, maybe even a diesel. crew cab, reg cab, super cab options, manual and auto. trans options, even a mini raptor option would be bad ass

^ X2 on the mini raptor option ^ I would very much like one of those magnets

I like the ranger just the way it is but I think they should come with bigger rims and tires from the factory. I also think they come with OHC's standard. I wish they would bring back the options like the edge and level II

Default Re: What do you want in a vehicle?

I want something that is reliable, cheap to fix, has some potential in the mods area, easy on gas, NON ELECTRIC. Can handle whatever ya throw at it. Around the size of an extended cab Ranger or a Toyota Tacoma. It has to be a truck or an SUV, no cars allowed. Unless it's a Muscle car/Sports car or a Crown Vic.

Default Re: What do you want in a vehicle?

i would love either a small eco boost or a diesel option as well as a v8 option, 4x4 with some actual potential from the factory, like a lift and coil over, toyota has em, jeep has em, why not ford? i have always been a fan of compact trucks as i dont need or want the space, bulk and weight of a full size or even half ton. but yeah more options on the ranger like others were saying, make it come with the OHC and some of the other nice exploder options.

for a truck, a 1/2 ton sized truck, regular cab with plenty of room behind the seat, 4X4, 6 foot bed, a reliable deisel engine that makes tons of torque & power and has none of that emissions horse crap on it, a 6 speed auto or a 6 speed stick, solid axles front & rear, air ride seats, a cd player with 4 speakers, rear slider, skidplates, a/c, great heat, cloth seat, vinal floors, bright red in color, and most importantly.....

a kagilion miles per gallon of fuel. or free fuel for the life of the truck, that would work too
