The Lost Swede Came Home

Sundsvall Sweden = Far far away

Hi I just needed to share a life changing experience that I had yesterday. I strolled quite unexpectedly in to my local car dealer and looked around. There was the front of a (winning)blue pickup that caught my eye, I went closer and the whole world dissapered around me. The only thing left before my eyes was the new Ford Ranger Wildtrak Double Cab.
I heard my girlfriend talking far far away but I was to focused on this creation of God to notice. I went slowly around it and absorbed all the details, finish and colours. I went in to the driver seat and it felt like home, everything felt like home! After sitting there for a while, smiling I had to check under the hood. Found easy the lever and went out to check.
Suddenly just when I was about to reveale the motor compartment the lights in the store went out and I heard a voice saying “we are closing now, please come back tomorrow”.
So now I’m sitting here with a hole in my chest. I have experienced the true me and from now nothing will be the same.

Thank you Ford for showing who I am and for showing the way home!

Ram M I am not buying a Chevy Colorado or a Dodge because I don't want them to get my money twice. I want to buy a Ford Ranger that has 4 full size doors. I have seen several of them around town. I leave in border town across from Mexico. I will not be forced to buy a truck I do not want, so am considering a Toyota Tacoma or a Nissan Frontier. To bad my dad was a ford guy.

martin lemons I too wish that ford would bring the new world ranger to the USA. I have a ten year old f150 supercrew, but the new ones are so much bigger. If ford would bring this to the USA, I would be the first to buy one. I think the new ranger is very sporty. Yes, it would hurt F150 sales, because there are alot of people who want and need a midsize truck. I will not buy any other brand. I guess i will have to wait and hope that Ford will bring this truck to market here. But, I do not want a redesigned F150 that looks like the reanger as it is too large. Please Ford, change your mind!

Jay I agree, VERY sad to see Ford is not listening to us. We want our Ranger kept alive! I myself only want the small/mid size truck. F150 is TOO Big for my needs, and it won't fit in the garage. Really upset with them for killing the Ranger.

Jacob Bradley Dear FoMoCo ,The F-150 is a great truck, very capable and all that (6 in the family, 73 78 85 95x2 & 07) BUT it is too big, too heavy , too thirsty, and a bit too lumbering for what I want in a truck right now. I NEED a smaller truck than the current F-150 but somewhat bigger than then the current U.S. spec ranger (I.E. Mid-Size) that has better gas mileage, more nimble, easier to fit in various places from city parking lots to the woodland trails but still be able to accommodate 4 people in the cab and still haul & tow, anywhere between 6000-8000lbs is fine by me because I rarely need near 11,300lbs or even 9000lbs for that matter if the need ever arises I will just borrow one the numerous F-150's in the family. The f-150's have grown in size over the years and I (and many others including some of my friends at a 3 of the local dealerships) would like to see an option within your lineup as a ranger or F-100 mid-size and with more modern powertrains (possibly the 3.5l 6 cyl. and a turbo 2.5 like the new Explorer and of coarse a 6-speed transmissions. I can't use a Fiesta for field work and a F-150 is too thirsty will just get caught between a rock and a hard place(literally~tree~). I will vouch for you Ford to many if you do bring us the world Ranger. Call it the F-100 if need be to count it in with F-series sales. Thank you if you read this and seriously think about it.

Anthony Choi I'm trying to hold out on buying a Toyota Tacoma in hopes that Ford will finally bring this midsized truck to the United States like it should have a long time ago. As a stick shift of course.

Stefan Bergström So you guys have to go to Sweden then. But don't fill up the tank over here, the price for a gallon here is 8$. So the Ranger is kind of to thirsty for Swedish prices but I dont care. I want it!

Jordan I agree, but all signs point to Ford sticking to their guns on discontinuing the Ranger in North America and not bringing the global Ranger to our shores. Bad Ford, Bad!
