Ford should make..

An SVT Ranger.

I was just going thru fords website researching the svt raptor and man o man did i cream myself. this truck is awesome. and it got me thinking What if Ford Made a Ranger Raptor. How awesome would it be. I mean the 150 raptor comes stock with 35s and you can get a 5.4 or a 6.2 Maybe they could cram a V8 into a ranger if they made a SVT...

I mean just throwin that idea around maybe someone from ford design will come across this and agree with me.

Somebody had the idea on here before. It would be cool, yes. But they wouldn't sell. Why pay all the money that it would cost when for a little bit more you get the Raptor.

You got a point but if they made the ranger just as capable i think its smallness has some advantages to a fullsize

Ford made the SVT Thunderbolt Ranger but obviously thought it was a bad idea and ditched it. Who would buy a Ranger that cost more than an F-150?

Maybe to force the people that wanted a V8 truck to buy a F series.

I think he may have overpaid depending on how well kept that 99 was.

Chevy Has the S10 Extreme. . . . I was just thinking about it the other day. I think Ford could sell a SVT Ranger. Put a quick v6 in it. Now if they do like they are doing with the new Taurus SHO. . . yeah they're not going to sell any. They want way too much for that new SHO!

Twin-Turbo V6 would work for me.
