Re: 2019 Ford Ranger

I am interested in seeing sales #s for this....while Ford has said demand is through the roof, I have seen a few YT videos where dealers have complained about sticker shock, one of them actually reported been sitting on 5 brand new Rangers for over 65 days now.

And those folks probably thought "Ranger" and figured it'd be the 15k stripper special price like before, not an actual midsize truck, with appropriate pricing.

Current Vehicles:
2009 Ford Flex Limited w/ AWD
Light Ice Blue/White Suede Roof | Med. Lt. Stone Interior | Vista Roof
2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
Lightning Blue | Black Top | Black Interior

I think the problem is that one can buy a F-150 for around the same price due to rebates...that might be the fix for Ford, add a 5k on the hood and sales might take off.

Re: 2019 Ford Ranger

People pay more for a ranch style home than a 2 story home that is twice the size.
People pay more for a small laptop than a big one.
I recently paid far more for a fridge that is counter depth, which is about 4" less deep and about 3-4 cubic feet smaller.

I guess it's not always about size, but preference. With the Ranger, which still costs thousands less than an F-150, you get something that fits your garage or lifestyle and is easier to drive and park. Took me a long time to understand that, but that's just the way it is.
