• Both my sons owned Rangers: one had its transmission replaced (common problem), the other had the V-6 and got terrible gas mileage.

  • The ranger is still sold in other markets. I did hear rumors that they were coming back, but that was some time ago. The Canyon/Colorado seems to be selling well without much competition even though they are expensive and relatively the size of a full size truck from 1993.

    • Ford confirmed recently they are bringing back the Ranger to the US in 2019. It's a midsize truck now, closer in size to a Tacoma or Canyorado. Bronco is also returning, presumably based on the new Ranger.

      Here's the current rest-of-world Ranger – it's better looking in person. I saw one in Mexico last year and checked it out for a few minutes.

  • That truck was likely built at the Twin Cities assembly plant in St. Paul, Minnesota. That factory has since been demolished to make way for condos in coffee shops. Such is life in modern America.

    The story is that Mr. Ford started a bidding war between several communities for the location of the factory. The offer to build a dam for cheap electricity and the presence of sandstone that could be mined for a glass manufacture (this was the largest auto glass producer in the world at one time) swung the deal to St Paul.

  • I'm not a fan of American fords at all. Other than crown vics and turbo t birds. That being said, I would totally drive this.
