New size F150

I read in the paper this morning that Ford is going to introduce a small size F150 as an economy trk around 2011. I guess that is the replacement for the Ranger.

Are they going to call it a F50 or F75 or F100?

There was a post about this a while ago. Its going to be the F100 and the Ranger will be back in 2012 or something as a mini truck with a 4 banger only.

It'll be roughly 9/10th's the size of the current F150, to be called the F100. Think the first gen Tundra or T100 sized. Supposedly going to be powered by the new twin turbo v6 gasoline engine. The ranger name plate is likely long gone.....ford wants to continue the whole "best selling truck: The F-series" stuff.....so......F100 will likely replace the Ranger nameplate.

I posted a link awhile back about it. they are workiing on a few twin turboed engines. They were called "Twin Force" but as of now are called EcoBoost. I'll see if I can find the link.

Here's the link...
https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ght=twin+force

Ya know Ford is getting their **** together these days. They are using Twin Turbos, and Direct Injection. Ford seems like they have been living in the carburetor era for a long time and their finnaly trying to out do everyone.

I read they are actually calling it a Ford Courier2, and going with a quad turbo supercharged 4-Cylinder.

Really.. its true!! :-D

Actually, I can't wait to see what really pops up.. there HAS to be a pickup being made by somebody.. theres a reason they sell so well! :-D

I would still like to see a small diesel as an engine choice. The europeans are getting great mpg out of them.

But does the extra cost of the diesel really make it more beneficial? I mean, if diesel was about the same price as gas, I would probably get a diesel too, purely for the gas mileage, but I don't think I can justify putting $125 into the gas tank just to get an extra 6 MPG's (comparing our companies Dodges, one a hemi 2500, the other a cummins 3500).
