Please make a new ranger
I currently own a Ford escape,which I bought new, and I'm happy with it, but I can't pull my new camper very well with it. I will not buy a F-150 as I know you could develop an updated Ranger. If the price of gas holds at $5-6/gallon I feel Ford will regret not developing a new ranger. I feel you should develop a new with two new Sport Trac type bodies, one which is lowered abit with a ecoboost 4 cylinder , for family hauling, and another for someone like me that has the 3.5 used in the Flex, which I could use to haul about 5000 lbs, besides hauling grand kids around. I do drive a 2012 4 door F-150 at work, and feel the size will turn people off. I believe with the smaller frontal area of a ranger Ford would ultimately achieve higher MPG. I a few years I'll have to opt for a Nissan Frontier. PLEASE build a 4 door, 250 hp, stick shift , cruise control , Ranger which gets 23-24 MPG. I think you can do it , and I would buy it...Hell, I'll even buy several thousand dollars of Ford Stock if you did. Finally, I also own a 2002 Ranger 4 cylinder, it is an excellent utilitarian vehicle, I believe you are making a hugh mistake not developing a new Ranger

Darren The Ranger needs to be put back on the market. It only lacked a major redesign and update, but there certainly is a need and market for it. The Ranger is sadly missed.
