wow, they should really think about revamping it more instead of just scrapping it.
ford must have done something right if they've been selling rangers this long, they really should put a small diesel in it again. not neccearily the crew cab we all want, but if i was in the market for a smaller truck and the diesel was an option, i'd get one with an extened cab. i had a buddy whose 6'4" in the back last week. he wasn't comfy but we made due.

if they stay constant with those figures, they will sell, just under 100,000 rangers this year.
