The grille of a Raptor is about the track width of a Ranger.

ud have to make a totally one off grille and scale it down to a ranger. It would be crazy expensive. I dont know too many people that have the means to completely mold a brand new grill. On top of that you would have some other things to deal with, headlight, bumper, hood.

Ford needs to just build one badass ranger, that's built in the same way the raptor is. Yes I know, there are level II's, I own one. But a ranger with V8, and lots of extra goodies off the production line and make it look sweet like what vista did

look at the biggest percentage of todays market for rangers...fleet sales...main reason why it is being discontinued after 2011...general public(other than us) isnt all that interested in the ranger anymore...it wouldnt sell because by the time it would be a raptor the price would be really close to the f150 raptor and ford wont risk cutting into the 150 sales

Meh, A ranger Raptor wouldn't cut in the F150 sales much, they're two diff vehicle sizes. If I could afford a Raptor I would like it for it's size and big cab. And it's 100% Ford's choice to ****ing rape people with the prices of their vehicles. They can make an affordable Ranger they just choose to have such a high MSRP.

Just view it as a Toyota very special offroad Tacoma. Lots of people would want it. Make the ranger better quality, bigger engine, better mile per gallon, stock 33 inch tires, limited slip or e-lockers front back. agressive design, leather seats, twin stick or auto/stick. None of that **** really costs them a lot other than the engine.
