hmmm which one

im thinking about running down to my local stealership and trying to trade in the mazda its a good truck but will never be what i want it to be for labor day they have $4500 cashback and $1000 trade in assistance going on idk if ill be able to trade in the mazda but ill give it a try the only way im doing it is for a 4x4

my problem is what color do i want

they have 4x4 xlt's right now
1 vista blue
1 dark shadow grey
1 torch red
2 oxford white

i love dsg but its almost as hard as black to keep clean
white is plain and boring but i still like it
i like blue just wish it was sonic blue like my old ranger
love the red its a really hot color but so do cops

heres the ones they have

Haha I just drove by the site is wrong they have a vista blue and a dsg 4x4 those are the 2 I was mainly concidering but I'm leaning more toward dsg because it like a nija color and blends in with the roads so well

none of them.
your truck is only 2 years old.
if you want 4x4, you can get it added to your truck.

Take off the wheels and tires and throw on stockers before you take it in.

Talking to me? If so, I just said that because I prefer Vista Blue over DSG, which is exactly why thatís the color Ranger I have. DSG is nice, but too plain to me. Vista Blue stands out and isnít any more difficult than DSG to keep clean.

I wouldn't buy this gen ranger given a new one will be out in 18 or so months. For the money you could get a loaded king cab pro-4x frontier. more room, power, and better offroad options.

Scarcity isn't a reason to purchase. If they had one in Teal would you buy it?

Ive never bought and never will buy a brand new vehicle just buy one with real low miles that someone else has taken all the value off of it as soon as you drive off the lot that truck will be worth way less
