Replace the 4.0 V6 in the 2011 Ranger with the 3.7 V6
I currently own a 2008 Ford Ranger Sport Pickup with the 4.0 V6 engine. I "downsized" to this vehicle from a 2001 F150 4X4 Sport when gas prices went up in the Spring of 2008. The 4.0 V6 is a good German made engine, but I was disappointed with the performance and the fuel economy.
This same 4.0 V6 was used in the Ford Mustang through 2010. In 2011 the 3.7 V6 is offered in the Mustang with a significant increase in horsepower/torque and fuel economy.
Since the north/south layout, 6 speed manual/auto transmission, fuel and electronic systems have been costed out on the 2011 Mustang, it would not be to much of a stretch to put the same into the Ranger.
The 3.7 V6 with 6 speed transmissions would really put some life into Ranger, maybe some six figure sales and help the Ford Cafe as well.
