The Best Are Being Dropped

Just settling in to my 2009 Adrenalin w/v8 which I bought two months ago with 26k miles on it. (Would have bought new but I guess I was three years late.  I’ve owned a Caddy Ext, Ford King Ranch and a Subaru Baja. By far, my favorite is the Adrenalin followed by the fun to drive Baja Turbo manual, followed by the Ext and then the King Ranch.. Funny, but the only vehicle of the four above still made today is the King Ranch, my least favorite.  Ford: Bring back either the Sport Trac Adrenalin or bring us the Ranger Wildtrak. I think you are highly underestimating the appetite for the Wildtrak in the us market. Put a diesel, six speed, leather package and lux it up a bit and watch what happens.

I am currently buying a 2014 Ranger Xlt crew cab in the Fiji Islands with the 5 cylinder ecoboost diesel engine and 6 speed automatic that will achieve 30 mpg's and can tow 7000 pounds.  This is the best mid sized truck in the world and for some reason, North America does not get it.  Ford says the ranger was discontinued in the US because of poor sales.  Well duh, it was not updated in like 20 years and was ugly, had crap mpg, etc..  Ford needed to keep the Ranger updated to keep it relevant.  And they failed to do so.  I don't want to hear the excuse from Ford that folks would not buy the Global Ranger with a diesel that is completely up to date in every way.  Btw, its not ugly anymore.  I also don't like how Ford is dealing with the problem by shaving off 700 lbs off the F-150 and dropping a 2.7 ecoboost into it.  Sure, it may get close to 30 mpg's but it's still a tank.  Not just talking about the wheelbase which is not too differenct then the new ranger on some configurations but the width on the F-150 is the same as a class C motorhome for petes sakes.  Its not an easy truck to drive around town.  People want the global Ranger with the 5 cylinder diesel.  You better believe it.  Just wait until the dakata comes back and GM comes back to the mid sized with updated designs.  Ford needs to build a plant to build the global ranger in the US and do that Asap.  I understand about the 20 percent import tax on trucks.  Please ford, do this.  There are many like myself who will never purchase the tank that is the F-150.  Never.
Want new Ranger in North America!
