ramping up production to have enough stock to make it for the 2011 truck, seems odd. lol

looks like cash for clunkers is the reason.

Is this the only truck that meets the cash for clunkers rebate? 4 cylinder Rangers?

Cool.

Now all they need to do is design more efficient motors and switch to composite body pannels so they get decent MPG.

As long as you get a 4 cyl., 2wd, there are a lot of trucks that can count for the program, depending on the vehicle you're trading in. Ranger/B2300, Taco, Canyon/Colorado, Dakota and Frontier.

Incidentally... the 4wd Taco and Colorado also count.
