This is long overdue. I own two; 2004 2X4 Reg Cab 3.0 V6 and 2004 4X4 4Dr Extended Cab 4.0 V6.

Here is another article and photo of the 2019 Ford Ranger from Ford's Web Site.

Nope - I refuse to get a truck with a smaller bed than my 6' stepside.

No V6, No manual, No reg cab! 3 strikes, your out. What are they doing, seriously. One engine option too. They won't be able to even compete, others offer diesel or V6. Eco boost ain't no fix all, especially a I4 one.

In the literature Ford states there will be a 6 foot bed available only in the crew cab version. As for the diesel, that is coming in subsequent iterations. Just like the the Chevy Colorado/Canyon, the diesel debuted later. it would seem Ford is putting much of it's effort towards the Halo version of the Ranger, the Ranger Raptor. Chevy Colorado's version of the Raptor has been a big hit, even though it lacks many of the attributes that makes a Raptor style truck a Raptor. The best thing about this, it is finally going to happen!

With this movement, there will be more of the current Ranger's coming available at even more affordable pricing. Just like the cycling of new models of Super Dutys. Those that don't wish to buy a new truck or the funds, the new upgrades create a stronger used truck market.

Me? I will be looking for a 3rd Ranger.

6ft bed is on the Super Cab. The crew cab gets a 5ft bed.

The sales numbers just aren't large enough to justify it. Most prepped want at least an extended cab.

The smallest ford ecoboost motor makes over 325/375. That's a bit much for the ranger. Not to mention trying to fit it in the chassis. The 2.3L i4 makes more power and torque than Ford's na v6.
ford openly stated years ago they had no intent of offering a manual stateside. Autos are more efficient, easier to drive, and a majority of the American population doesn't care.

See above. The diesel is coming. Just not at initial release.

There is a 1.6L Ecoboost that makes 178 hp and then there is the 2.0L Ecoboost that made 252hp but it was dumped after 4 years for the 2.3L Ecoboost.

The EB is a good idea if you are cruising down the highway at 60 to 65 mph with no load in the bed. For the F150 EB gets slightly better than the 5.0 in city driving and will drop mileage significantly if towing or hauling a load. A turbo diesel is the best answer.
