Ford Tough

Ford has always talked about “Ford Tough” and it has always applied to pickup trucks. However, I just want you to know that in 2008 I was in an auto accident that totaled my Ford 500. this car was my baby. I bought it brand new from our local Ford dealership and it was beautiful. In October of 2008 I was making a left hand turn onto the street I live on and was approximately 1000 feet from my front door when a young man in a Ford Mustang T-Boned me at 65 MPH hitting the metal frame between the front and rear door on the passenger side. Although my car was totaled I believe this car was “Ford Tough” and prevented serious injury to my passenger and myself. As of today, I still have not replaced that car. When I am ready to purchse another car it wil be a “FORD TOUGH” vehicle.

Ok, about the future Ford Ranger. I am a big fan of Ford, I had a n 85' Ranger that I drove for about 9 years +/-, great truck great style, then recently had a 99' Ranger 4x4 xlt, awsome truck loved it! So I am talking design to begin with, I see picuters of this future ranger with the front end of the Edge strapped to it! This does not settle well with my design eye. How about exploring the idea of, say start with the body style of the 04'-08' F-150's then throw a little Atlas touch to it and I believe you'll have another awsome Ranger on your hands. This is Ford, it must be tough at all costs! The Edge is a Suv, not a truck! I currently drive an 04' F-150 and love it but, would consider another Ranger (midsize truck) if I liked it. Otherwise I might end up with a Canyon even though the simple fact that they spent time to engineer a step in the side of the rear bumper iritates me. Finally, Interior, you guys do nice interiors, best of all, I would just say room for a small family to be comfortable crewstyle cabs thats it. Ecoboost!
