If the plant does infact close in '09, then we could still see two more model years of the Ranger. '09MY Rangers will likely begin production around May/June of '08 and '10MY Rangers would likely start around May/June of '09, so when exactly in '09 is the plant shutting? Early? Late?
I did know what he meant, but why would you not consider a Super Duty a truck? Millions of people across the country drive them everyday as DD's. So let's look at it this way, Ford will still, without the Ranger, have 4 different models of truck, 150-450 and arguably Sport Trac. Toyota, 2, Tundra Tacoma, Nissan 2, Titan Frontier, Mitsu 1, Raider. Dodge 4, Dakota 1500-3500, Chevy 4, Colorado 1500-3500, GMC 4, Canyon 1500-3500, Hummer, 1 SUT.
See, Ford won't have any fewer truck options than the rest, they just won't have the 'mini' truck the others have, that is if they don't replace the Ranger with something else, which has never been publicly stated either way.
I hate these Rangers dieing, Fords doomed threads...
And, now that we are throughly off topic... back to the thread at hand... lol
