Default Re: ford's new truck???

The F100 left us back in 1983 because the only thing that separated it from the F150 was the number of leaf springs, GVWR, emblems, and in some cases brake size. Ford is getting out of the compact truck market altogether, at least until everybody gets sick of huge vehicles again. And there's no point in bringing out another F150, so the only truck choice Ford is gonna offer is the traditional F150+.

Consider the F100 gone forever, anything you hear is just a rumor.

Default Re: ford's new truck???

Ford can say what they want, and so can everyone else that drives a pick-up or makes fun of us that drive a pick-up. I told my Dad when I was 17 or 18 years old and driving a hand me down 88' Escort hatchback that I would never own a car, and I've held to it. Ford has been changing their lineup the last couple of years for the better, but I have always liked the look and feel of a pick-up. I think (as well as others on this board) that FORD could sell more than 75,000 Rangers had they put more investment into updating instead of letting the vehicle die. I love my 08' 3.0, and if something happens down the road, I would have to make a big decision as to its replacement. I will say that I would do my darndest to find a used 4.0 L Ranger ext. cab. before turning in the towel and getting a car.

I think they'll bring the Ranger back in the future. I mean, they're stupid popular. Every autozone, napa, and 0'reilly parts store out there uses them. I just think they are trying to cut production costs by turning one model into six different trucks.

ya, that could be whats happening. it seems that ranger is just too good of a truck to let go all of a sudden. i hope they don't close it for good.

Then again the Probe GT had balls of steel and looked great, but they shut it down the same way.

thats true. the thought of an F-100 didn't seem that bad though. but in that case they probably wouldn't last an fade back out. =/

ya that is true but at that time is when ford had the escort sport z models bout to come out and every one knew bout that.. right now we dont have any thing showing a new truck hitting the states. and
DadsFordGirl is right allot of places do use them as work trucks dont know bout other states but here in IN the state high way dept uses them along with the water comp and elc comp here in town. but here again ford stoped the production of the crown vic police intersepter what last year or so. but the Taurus and expo took over that task

it seems alot of people still have a use for the ranger. it only seems like a couple of months ago all the brands i've know an grown up with are vanishing. when i learned the vic was going i was like this then when i got word of our ranger going i went to this lol.

Yeah I'm not a fan of the world ranger at all. Looks like a yota. Honestly almost glad they aren't selling those things here. Just wish they'd revamp our current model like they did the 150. New headlights and a badass interior.
