Why Not A Ford
FEB
06

When I graduated college back in 77, I had no credit. I worked for a company that loaned me money to buy my first car, a Mercury Comet. I think it was a 77 too. I had no credit, nor money, no dealer would even help. My older brother sold cars in another state and he said come up here and I will help you. Well, I got a metallic gray Ford Ranger. I loved that truck. Then traded for a Red Ranger, kept for 11 years. Then a few Tauruss. Then a friend knew I was needing a new vehicle and that I loved green. She found me a KiWi green Focus. I didn’t like at first, but I do now. She has since passed away and I just can’t imagine getting rid of it, not for now anyway. She wanted the new Ford Taurus, but deceased before being able to get one. Ford has always been by vehicle of choice.

3 drop down links on the Ford web page talk about the Ranger as a winner for the current markets it is in. These Rangers have the cutting edge technology that make them winners in all respects. Where ever I travel through out the world people like a smaller truck, that is part do to the technology and the fuel economy. The F-Series is just too big for many people that have small garages in America. Ford already has the Ranger running around the rest of the world, so many miss the Ranger because it was a good fit. I hear testimonies of people who love their Rangers and can't figure out why Ford doesn't build one here? It was the perfect fit for many people, it would sell if we did the things to give it the gas milage.  Ford try it with eco-boost and upgraded features, if you build it right, they will buy it.  It is not the Elephant and will fit into the mouse hole nicely and be a winner.
