Thank You For The Ford Edge

Thank you, thank you Ford for saving my partner. Last week while waiting for oncoming cars to pass so he could turn into our yard, my partner of 19 years was hit from behind by a speeding car. The young girl who hit him actually went under our car and popped back out 15 feet. Her car hood buckled (luckily she wasn’t hurt too). Our Edge Limited was hit so hard the console buttons popped out (no damage). Because of Ford’s wonderful safety features, the only damage that our car incurred was the trailer hitch was bent (had to be replaced) and our back bumper was damaged (also needed to be replaced). We were told that he was very lucky because the hitch took all the impact. It could have been a very serious accident and your engineers planning helped make a horrible situation tolerable and safe.

We are a two Edge family. We love all the features it provides including the gas mileage. We feel safe traveling in all kinds of weather conditions. We have had quite a few Fords in our time (Explorers) I thought they were fantastic but I have to tell you that with the Ford Edge you have an excellent product in your hands. I would highly recommend the Edge or any Ford product for their safety and dependability.

Thank you from the bottom of our heart.

The F-150 is too damn big; especially for those of us living in larger citys like Southern California.  It is a complete bear to park; I've got a 96 explorer which need to be replaced; preferably with a truck.  Sadly the discontinutation of your Ranger line has me looking at the Toyota Tacoma which has essentially remained unchanged in terms of engine or trans technology since 2005.  A V6 4x4 Access Cab Tacoma, while the perfect size for us city dwellers gets 16 City/ 19 Hwy mpg. That's at a curb weight of 4,100 lbs. An F1-150 4x4 with ecoboost gets 15 City / 21 Hwy mpg. Despite a curb weight of 5,600 lb A 2011 4wd Supercab Ranger had a curb weight of 3,700 lb.  That's 2000 less than the F-150. If you revived the Ranger line, sticking in it the f-150 innovations (Eco-boost, 6 speed trans); You would have a 4x4 truck that could be pulling 25 City/30 Hwy Mpg and could out-haul the current F150. I undestand all of the reasons why you left the small/mid size truck market;  It's dwindling, the plant closed, the F-150 is everything the Ranger is an more.  But a 4x4 truck that can pullover 25mpg on gasoline is something significant and would beat the heck out of anything coming out of Toyota.  In 2011 you sold 70k rangers to 110k Tacoma's In 2012 you sold 19k Rnagers to 141k Tacomas It's in-arguable that the decision to stop producing the ranger has allowed some market share to be absorbed by Toyota. I'm no expert, but all the new F-150 tech in a slightly smaller package would result in what's probably the best small truck on the market. As it stands, I am seriously considering getting a eco-boost crate motor and new trans and sticking it in a old F-100 body.  That gets me a small truck with phenominal gas mileage that can likely out tow the current F-150 while still being able to park in a big city. I'd love to buy a new Ford; you guys are on the bleeding edge of technology.  But the package it's in (The F-150) is just too damn big to be functional in city life.  Short of Reviving the ranger, my only option is to take the new tech and stuff it in an old shell.  Thanks for reading.
