Thats the model that will have the 6 speed manual but its not going to be out till roughly november or december and its going to be base of around 38-40k and since they will be hard to get they will most likely be marked up.

34K? i thought they topped out at 32K?

I looked at one when they first came out, almost bought one but decided to hold onto the Ranger for a while longer. The one i wanted was just under 31K. G8 GT, dark grey, with the leather, and premium package and 18 inch wheels.

2008's started at 29999, topped out at 32700 fuly loaded. The 2009's had a slight increase in base price (1300), so they are a little more expensive, hence the fully loaded 34100 price.
