Bring back true 4x4 Compact Trucks

There are so many people in this country who love small tough reliable trucks. The classic Ranger that was just discontinued and the old Explorer body on frame and Bronco trucks are examples. People respected and loved the Ranger until Ford stopped continuing to improve it! Ford now makes NO BODY ON FRAME TRUCKS besides the huge F-Series?! I don't want a full size truck and tons of people I talk to daily don't either! Look at the Nissan Xterra-Frontier, Jeep Wrangler, Toyota Tacoma-4Runner. Ford COULD design and build products that would embarrass these vehicles but at this time those are the trucks I’m considering as my next vehicle because there are no offerings from my favorite auto maker. Please if we have any option coming available soon from Ford let us know because I can try to find a used 4X4 Ranger but I want my next vehicle to be new and right now if I don’t want to buy from Govt Motors I’m going to have to go foreign my least favorite choice when it comes to vehicle purchases.

I know what you guys mean. I have been driving a Ranger for 15 years and have no use for a full size truck. I do like the size of the Tacoma and Frontier and would really be on board with a Classic Bronco look or 4 door 4x4 truck.

It looks like Ford is trying to force us into buying F150s. At $4 per gallon gasoline, the Japanese will beat Ford to market with a truly compact pick-up and Ford will be playing catch-up. You are exactly right.

I'm in the same boat. It would be great if Ford would jump into the compact 4x4 market with something tough as we all know Ford can be.
