A Ranger Fan

Since the 80’s I have been a Ranger fan. I worked as a laborer for a home builder, they gave me a ranger to help me. I beat the living hell out of it and it still ran. I then bought a 1989 extended cab and drove it daily 25 miles or so on the Stevenson expressway to downtown Chicago. It still ran. Finally I bought my friends 1999 ranger step side as I watched him down to his last hour in 2002. I still have it. I had watched the “Rolling Thunder” on power block’s “Truck’s!”. I liked how they moved the front axle forward and put in a kick butt suspension. I wish the designers at Ford would take a look and figure out a way to put those ideas to mass production. I will keep on buying Rangers as long as they are available. And I would like to see an FX4 updated version as the winters here in Chicago can be quite nasty. Thank you. Also may I suggest a way to shift from front wheel drive to rear wheel drive to all wheel drive? On the fly too? Just a thought.

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!
