x eleventy billion


I'm not expecting much

It'll probably be pretty stupid looking. Then again, maybe it'll be offered with a diesel. Then there'd be a simpler diesel swap.

If Ford goes ahead, the next Ranger could be a world pickup, shared with Asia and South America. The next Ranger likely will have a crew-cab option.

A 5.5-liter V-6 diesel engine is in the works for the Expedition and F-150 pickup. But the diesel's timing has slipped, possibly to beyond 2010.

Ranger too? PLEASE?

"An SVT version developed by Ford's performance group is expected in 2007."

I thought SVT was going away or something?

a crew cab would be nice but i think they would defintely have to smooth out some lines to a crew cab ranger. I think the ones in argentina look to ugly. Need to look more agile. I think a redesign will boost sales and help compete with frontiers and tacomas.

Stone your right its not 5.5 liters for the diesel its a 4.4L, its a bit too big and too powerful for the ranger platform.

Eh. I won't buy another Ranger. It's too "small" , I'll just wait until they introduce the diesel F-150, get a gunmetal FX-4 and call it a day.


That...or keeo the Ranger, and buy a Porsche Cayman S.

The info posted there is a dating back to 2005. I know there are some changes for 2008 that may anger some.
