F-150 'short bed'
If the Ranger is to be gone for good, introduce a F-150 with a shorter bed. Some people in the city might find a shorter overall length F-150 a little more maneuverable, and still have the truck meet most of their daily needs. Call it a "access bed" or something like that. Add a cab like that of the Chevy Avalanche to potentially increase payload if needed. Some new style of the 'ram box' on the sides or inside of the bed. In most cases a bed extender could do the trick. Could even add it to the F-150 Raptor line to increase off-road performance. Less weight, more maneuverable, better fuel economy; what more could you want.

Phil M Sport Trac with a 3.7 would be cool - Super Cab with 5.5 box and 3.7 or 3.5 would be perfect.

RONALD M Dud that the Ford F150 super crew with a 5.5 foot box. And it looks better that that Chevy. But a modified F150 with opening at the back seat to load longer materials would be great.
