I still don't care for the styling, but it will be the best looking truck in its class.

I came > < close to buying a Colorado when I got my Edge (my Escape had died, and an Edge rental won me over). Given the choice between a Colorado and this Ranger I'd go with the Colorado.

Did marty mcfly drive a ranger/courier..no he did not he drove a taco...seriously thing thing is believed to be able to put a dent in taco sales???...i do not think so..
Ranger looks a lot like Tacoma, maybe that's why some don't like the style......
Tacoma is 90% V6 sales, big question is whether 2.3 EB and 10AT gets Ranger near that...

that would be Cleveland I think
LOL, As in not built by Ford Europe......engines come from the same line as Mustang and other Nth American 2.3 EB vehicles.

I don't know. Looks OK. Don't care for the orange with gray trim. Not sure about only one engine option, but I have a feeling there will be more after launch.
I think the only thing holding it up will be the infotainment screen is built into the dash. It looks like the dash was actually designed around it, not added like an afterthought.

No doubt that there's a lot of information that Ford's not revealing yet. And if Ranger sales follow F-Series, expect 50% to be Lariat's.

Hopefully more powertrains to be added in the future.

For those of you who dont think it will compete well in the market, I think you are wrong. The Ranger name carried a lot of weight back in the day, not to mention Fords position in trucks. Im glad it isnt a shrunken F150, and carries its own style, which will allow it to compete against SUVs/CUVs, as well as trucks.

Front fenders, tailgate and hood are aluminum. I heard the doors were supposed to be aluminum too. Wonder if it was cost or just bad information.
One wheelbase. No long bed with the 6 foot bed. No regular cab. Missing a lot of tech the F-150 has. I wonder if more stuff will be added or if this is the way to keep people in the larger truck.
