I have been reading continual articles about the lack of a mid-size truck in the domestic line-up. The discussion constantly leans toward mpg. I did not choose my truck based on mpg (I currently avg. 16mpg).
The reason I purchased a midsize was the size. Ingress/egress is easier, doors are smaller, bed height is manageable, parking is easier, washing is easier, tires are cheaper, mass is less etc.
I think that Ford is not considering ease of ownership when the topic of discussion is the Ranger. it is not about mpg only.
My current truck is a dodge Dakota Quad Cab 2wd. Perfect size for my lifestyle.
I picked the truck because it fit me. yes it has a small bed but my need for 8' of storage is sporadic.
