    Bugs the crap out of me. People used to buy rangers because they were good on gas. If you wanted a truck you would buy an f-150. Makes sense. You could never use a ranger as a truck.

    And here I am thinking about buying a ranger, because I want something that can easily fit my engine puller and parts, and ford is killing it because there is no market.

    I like having a small truck for work so I can carry tools and equipment that wont fit in the trunk/backseat of my thunderbird I don't want a big f-150 or silverado to drink all my gas, just a small truck like a Frontier or Ranger. I guess it doesnt' really matter since I'll never be able to afford a new truck but it would still be nice to buy one of those in a few years. I really like the look of it.

    Kinda makes me wonder they'll even be selling the mustang????? I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see them ditch it in less than 10 years. Every time we think a model has cemented itself in Ford's line up, GONE. So, how appropriate would it be ford them to 86 it too.
