Another Amazing Ford Truck!

I’ve owned 3 Rangers before my F-150. They have ALL been excellent trucks with VERY few problems. But my 1999 F-150 is the most amazing Ford truck I’ve ever owned. I have just over 476,000 miles on it now. Beyond doing many oil changes, brake pads and occasional rotors, and being on my 5th set of tires, I’ve done very little to this truck. It has been the most reliable vehicle and has served every need I’ve had. My dad is a Ford man, and I have been and ALWAYS will be as well! I fully intend to get well over 500,000 miles on my Ford truck! I’d love a new one, but this one is paid for and still runs great!

Joseph i wonder, did you forget to mention your front suspension parts? i had to replace my tie rods at about 100000 miles, (bought Ford parts) ball joints about 160000, tie rods again about 180000 miles (bought good quality parts, not Ford, but these i could put grease in them) still going strong at 300000 miles. oh and did i mention replacing all four wheel bearings by 250000 miles. 2000 F-150 regular cab, 2 wheel drive, V-6 auto, mostly for personal & light load usage. best ford i ever owned.

Over the last 20 years, Ford has had several vehicles phased out because of a changing market. I think a speak for a large group when I say that some of these amazing vehicles should be brought back into the Blue Oval's lineup. First of all, the Ranger. The Ford Ranger has always been praised for its reliability and fuel efficiency compared to other similarly sized pickups. And there is still a very large market for a vehicle like the Ranger. The Ranger also seems like the preferred option for large fleets due to its lower cost of operation. I think that the global version of the Ranger should be left to thrive in other countries, and the classic, reliable, maneuverable little American ranger should be brought back. After all, the Ranger never changed much because you don't fix what isn't broken. If this new Ranger doesn't have a crew cab option, Ford could also integrate a new Explorer Sport Trac, another popular vehicle among Vacationers and adventures alike! These two smaller trucks may be just what Ford needs to prevent gm from stealing the small truck market, which can and will happen with the re-designed Colorado and Canyon. In addition, I believe Ford should sell an Suv version of the Ford Raptor. It would serve alongside the Raptor as a throwback to the Bronco. This svt Bronco should have no trouble selling considering the wild success of the svt Raptor, and should be powered by a revised version of the 6.2 liter V8, which could get dual turbochargers of its own to better compete with Ram's new 6.4 Hemi. Finally, I believe that the Excursion should be brought back, though un-popular near the end of its life, the Excursion was a revolutionary truck that provided families of 7 or more a comfortable vehicle that would also tow an 11,000 LB Trailer, which, unfortunately, an Expedition simply cannot do because of the difference in its design. All of these vehicles could come with new engine choices as well, The Ranger with a standard 1.0 Liter Ecoboost, upgradable to a 2.7 or 3.5 ecoboost. Maybe even the 5.0 Coyote V8 for classic V8 power. The Sport Trac with similar engines choices as the new Ranger, And the Excursion with the 5.0 Coyote standard, upgradable to the revised 6.2 Liter V8 or the legendary 6.7 Powerstoke. Lastly, the Ranger should recive a Platinum Trim, and The Excursion should be available in King Ranch. There is indeed a market for vehicles like these, and even if only produced in limited number they should be brought back. Instead of having the F-150, which truly isn't universal, as the only option. Ford should offer this variety of trucks which could fit each customer's needs individualy. This, in combination with the redisigned F-Series and Commercial Series, would secure Ford's place as King of the truck market, and Satisfy many fans of the Blue Oval.
