"IF" Ford was to make a crew cab US ranger!?

As title states..what would you want it to look like and what options? be kinda cool if we could get this together and try to get ford to build one..i think they would out sell the F-150....but thats MY opinion.............. heres mine

4x4
factory sunroof
power rear glass
leather seats w/center console
i could live with 2010 style headlight and what not
crew cab with full length bed or short bed
15" 16" 17" wheel options
LeveL II FX4 package
4 wheel disc
well you get the idea...lol

I don't think it would ever outsell the F150. The colorado surely doesn't outsell the 1500 nor the Dakota outsell the 1500.

I think they should update the interior to match the F150, update the frontend to match the new fords.

Theres no way it would outsell the f150, Ford would price it so high it would be the same price as a entry level 150.

I could have got a base F150 for the price I payed for my FX4 but I opted for the more toys on the Ranger. And the Ranger is a bit easier to parallel park...

Spend another thousand and get a supercrew xlt lol

But I wouldn't be buying anything new, way to much depreciation.

My 01 will probably be the newest truck I personally own. The wife will get a newer car or whatever.

I prefer the older stuff

It would be cool to see one though

I think a updated interior (new dash, seats, gauges, etc, etc) with a front end update would be pretty much all it needs.

Honestly I could probably go back to a crew cab ranger with the 3.7 v6. That would be a fun truck

i'd be happy with mine if it was a crew and had the options i have now. the only extra i'd want would be a sunroof.

also maybe with a 4.6 or 4.0 with more torque. either way, i'd want more of a tow rating then what it has now.

4x4 5sp manual tcase, lockers from factory, a front suspension that actually flexes....

Then the usual stuff, power everything.

Anything more I want will never come from the factory.
