I am a fan of the engines that they are available with and i think the 4 banger Ecoboost would be awesome in a Ranger too. I like the way it looks even though the grille is a little TOO close to the Taurus, but I guess it is all supposed to be a family feel.

I am ok with the unibody construction. Fine by me.

But FWD? I have a hard time with that on an "suv" (this is marketed towards the suv crowds even though it is technically a cuv.)

I kinda like it. I'm sure it'll grow on me like a lot of newer cars do.

It looks pretty good.

Seeing as it looks more like a jacked up wagon than an SUV to me,

My money is on the Flex going away soon after this comes out.

I would buy one if I was in the market for one. but im not. As for the FWD its all about the MPG's. And most people in the southern states don't need AWD, I could get by with a truck in 2wd even in ND winters I kno a few people who do.

cool, Ford has redesigned the exploder more times in 8 years than they have the ranger in 17 years! And given it 2 sibling suvs in the Edge and the Escape! While their fullsize trucks get uglier and uglier every 2 years! While the Ranger rots away in the early 90s! Way to go FORD!
