Default Work at Ford...

What would you do if you were a top designer at Ford and why? I'll start first. I would redesign the F150 and Ranger truck lines from scratch, and gave the people more choices in terms of options such as engines and transmissions. The price tag would be reflected by the people's choices. If the people want it and they can get it then by all means help yourself. Ford won't even sell you a production V8 now. You have to go through Ford Racing, which I think can be good but I think it's bullshit to ignore the people who have a huge part of the company's success.

I would redo the ranger for sure! gota do the one i love most. redo it cause no lie its due for an upgrade. offer a larger cab, quad cab, new interior for sure and outside. And most import i want a "RANGER RAPTOR"!!! thats affordable for most. i kinda like the new F150 a lot. i like the HD trucks to 250s 350s and 450s, but if i want a diesel i wana hear it, and i want the option of a 6spd in it. def cut the prices to what you buy tho.

I'd old school just about everything. I found something on one of my part websites. Someone has come up with a way to turn a LWB Rnager into a 1946 F1 truck. It looks awesome too. The designers at Ford must've been smoking crack on the new F150 a bit. And above all else offer the 3.5 Eco boost engine as a choice for the ranger.

I'd kindly make the Ranger look like something that Darth Vader would drive alond with a side pipe exhaust and a big block engine. I would love for Ford to come out with a 600 cubic inch monster of an engine.
