Attention guys Ford will build a new Ranger!

Guys, I wanted to keep y'all informed on this.....

Ford just put the word out on the street that they need some new tooling for a truck, but not an F-series. It's for the new Ranger!!! My boss and I were talking about this earlier this morning and it is confirmed that Ford is indeed looking for quotes for a new assembly line (or at least some new parts to the old one) for a 2009-2010 Ranger!!!!!!

I don't know where it will be built, I don't know anthing about the motors, but I do know for a fact that there will be a new ranger!

I don't know but I am excited as hell to see it. I have also heard about a 4 door model, but that I can not confirm...

If there is a 4 door diesel or even 4 door with a V8, sign me up now, I want the first one...lol.

i don't think they will build a 4 door U.S. version because of the Sport Trac......that would be too much competition......

i sure hope the new Rangers don't have an IRS.....that would suck for lifting...

I'll stick with the 4 door ext cab but if it gets a 2.5L Powerstroke I may have to plunge myself further into debt!

Yeah even if they just made the extended cab a little bigger that would be good, but Diesel or V8 and I will own one.

Maurice, I don't think they will put IRS on the ranger, there isn't a truck out there with it, and I don't think there will be...

2009 - 2010 is probably when I'd be looking for a new vehicle. If this Ranger comes 4 door w/ good legroom in the back, I would consider it over the Sports Trac. Diesel and all those other goodies would be a bonus.

thing is though, they are all about on road ride quality......and we all have to face it sometime that the IRS is the best on road ride quality available....

i think the Powerstroke they are using in Rangers overseas are the 2.5L 4 banger......but an increase of the displacement would mean more power

hopefully there will still be a 4cyl. gas would prohibably $5-$6 dollor range by then. if it looks like a baby F150 i'd get one. I have no interest in a diesel since diesel is kinda hard to find around me for some unknown reason. plus the fact that I have no patience for one. if it looks good i'll prohibably get one, since my truck will be 8-9 years old at that time, good timing for a new truck.

I would'nt be surprised if they killed of the sport trac in fsvor of a 4dr Ranger. The current sport trac does'nt seem to sell very well.
