Default Re: The S10 Extreme Returns.....

I bet Ford will bring back the Ranger Edge model. This is no joke, I talked to a friend of mine last night shortly after posting this thread. He's a GM and Ford dealer. He expects to see them arrive around september. The S10 was a POS if it was stock, but I modded mine out and it was much, much better. I had a 96 model. I put a new suspension on it and swapped in a 350 SBC which was damn near a direct bolt in swap. Then I let an exfriend borrow it and he totaled it. I have owned 3 rangers since then. I wouldn't give mine up for anything. Even if you offered me a free 2011 Cadilac CTS-V sport sedan, I still wouldn't give up my ranger.

----------

It's not a concept. That link I posted is to a direct vehicle sales link.

I refuse to believe a site that is so poorly written and so repetitive in it's statements. And all those S10's that show up on Google search are from foreign countries.

I'll wait until I actually see a brand new S10 on my local GM dealer's lot.

That's my point. I've heard from my dealer friend, but he tends to blow smoke up people's asses. He's a salesman what do you expect. I too won't believe it until I see it. I also wouldn't put it past them either.

I dont understand why they are talking about the 4300 and the 2200 engines? you would think they would use the standard colorado powertrain (2.9, 3.5 or the 5.3L). I could have misread though

Well I have to agree. they weren't making since concerning the powertrain and it is ugly when you look at the front. I would've used a custom hood, and made a grill that resembles the old Chevelle SS models myself. Cause that looks like pure dog shit to me. A few mods and she'd look alot better than what she does now, that's for sure. I just wanted people to know that the ranger's biggest rival, the S10 was returning soon really. It will fail miserably to say the least, because it's clear to me that the GM designers are on crack or something. I'd fire every damn one of them if I was in charge of that dept. for being stupid with their shit.

I dont see why GM would revive an old nameplate, especially for a specialty model like the extreme. Those idiots just got out of their bailout (i use out lightly) and they are going to start splurging on risky models like a sport truck. The ford lightning came and went. the Toyota Xrunner came and went, the Dodge Srt-10 Ram came and went. these sport trucks dont last long because there is barely any market for them (dont get me wrong if there was no snow here I would have an Xrunner). It shows you that the head honcho at Gm have Lead in their head and more brass in their n*tsack then they put in their cars. f**k oof GM and your silly spending, stick to what you know which is ummm, the corvette only I guess...

Alright now Andy, L.O.L. I know what you're saying, the market needs an afordable model instead of the sport model. Corvettes aint cheap, The Silverado aint cheap either. About the only truck that GM makes that I would buy is the Chevy 1500, or a used S10 regular pickup. I don't blame GM's new CEO for this, I blame the the previous CEO for it's problems. He was and is an ass. That design team needs to go very badly as well. Damn I'd love to design some shit for Ford or GM for that matter. My shit would be 100 times better and sell like crazy. They wouldn't be able to make it fast enough. Plus you forgot about Buick's new version of the Regal which is about the only thing they have that's worth looking at to be honest.

The only GM product that I would own that was made in my lifetime (1988-present) would be a 1997+ Corvette, other then that GM has failed to impress me and has even disappointed me (my 1999 Grand Am 2.4L was POS). I would not own their trucks, Cars, or SUVs. The only van I would consider would be the Chevy Astro with a 4.3 and I would have to be a plumber lol

Well, that's your opinion. The corvette is extremely expensive. It starts at about $80K here in my area. The 1500 would be the only thing I'd buy really. I could only dream of owning corvette. That's what I call wishfull thinking there. Here's the thing that gets me pissed off the most about GM. They have the ability to build an affordable and kool car or truck that everyone can afford, and they're clearly not doing it. They spend money on shit that they don't need, and the term "badging" doesn't do it justice either. That's what killed Pontiac,Saturn, and Oldsmobile. Oldsmobile was the first victim back in 1999. Pontiac fell shortly before Saturn did (a month apart really). Badging is a huge problem with the big 3. It has done more damage than people say it has.
