It's Still Going

I just wanted to share with Ford about how good one of their trucks is .In 2003 my fiance bought a 1994 Ford Ranger XLT 4×4 extended cab truck with around 90,xxx miles he added some extas it was a nice truck. A couple of years later he flooded the truck in a river he had to fix the transmission after that he rolled the truck and he had to fix the top and put on a new door he then just kinda gave up on the looks of the truck he has never really done anything major to the truck and rarely even changes the oil. The truck now has over 315,xxx miles and he still drives it he will pull his boat behind it to go fishing. I and our friends tease him and tell him his truck needs to be on a Ford commercial for being such a good truck. My father is a used car dealer and many of times he has used this truck as an example of how good Rangers are. My fiance is hoping someday he can afford to upgrade to a newer Ford truck but for now he will have to keep driving his 1994. I just thought this would be interesting to know about. Thanks for the great truck.

I was very disappointed to see the Ranger leave the Ford lineup. I have owned 4 of these great trucks and have been very pleased with them. I drive my '95 with 180,000 miles to work 30 miles away everyday. I'm not sure if the people at Ford don't read these ideas or what, but there seems to be enough people that would like to see the Ranger come back. I believe that many of the ex-Fords would do well if marketed correctly and built with plenty of available options. Vehicles like the Ranger, Crown Victoria, and Bronco (a personal favorite that I'd love to see come back) were so popular at one time and seemed to just fade away. An all new Ranger with engine options such as a small diesel and manual transmission designed for fuel mileage would be a great sell. As well as other engines to choose from for people looking for power. Maybe some trims such as xl where I could chose vinyl floor, crank windows, but still have aluminum wheels and chrome bumpers and grille outside. I've noticed in Australia they have multiple engines with a variety of cab choices. Single cab, extended cab, crew cab, short bed, long bed, no bed, manual transmission, automatic, the options go on. I would like to see Ford bring some of these Australian Rangers to the U.S.A., put the steering wheels on the correct side (notice I didn't say "right side"), and see how they sell. I'd be interested.
