whos worried about what new ranger will look like...?

I've heard so many different things going around about the future of the Ranger...

ive heard fords going to replace it, then ive heard they're not....iv heard they're working on a new on...

personally, it kind of worries me...i HATE the overseas new Ranger...it looks like a toyota and a nissan had an ugly baby together....bed looks like an older frontier, the side looks like a new frontier, and the front looks like a yota!

it just worries me that Ford is going to really screw up the Ranger....

i know it has had basically the same look since 93, but with a track record that long, it must be doing something right!!!

what do yall think?

I'm not going to sweat it. I can't afford a new one when the come out anyways. So.. like I said, I'm not going to sweat it, I just hope IF they're going to do anything that they do it right and not screw it up.

I agree with freddie. I dont have the money for it so o well. Hopefully they just dont rush it and cut a bunch of corners.

I'd like to see a new classic styled f100, not a lightened f150.

lol theyve got the 4 cyl ECOBOOST (turbo for hippies haha)
but it looks down right ugly. mine is a 96 with less than 95k on it.. im good for another couple years i figure or untill it gets totaled... narrowly escaped it from that last accident.. body shop estimate was 2750 and if it hit above 3k they wouldve totaled it

As long as they dont try and make them look like the new F 250 and up. They made those so ugly in the front end!

Seems like you don't read the whole post. It was cheap. I didn't have too make money at the time and a Ranger is all I could afford. Don't worry about my complaining because it won't end until the truck is gone. You don't like then don't read.

I love Rangers but probably wont buy one again. They are a great truck just a little to small for my liking and cant really haul what I need to.

I hope they dont make it look asain though.

Might seem strange, but I hope it stays a bit on the crude side and still looks at least 1 decade older than the other new trucks on the market.
