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.

Re: 2019 Ford Ranger

A good long term review. As usual with Ford products, the engine is brilliant, the transmission isn´t.

I have the same 10-speed in my F150 and feel the same way, the transmission is slow...Sport mode doesn’t really fix it....so I’ve learned a trick : when I know I am going to need more power, I double tab the accelerator, forcing the transmission to pull a few gears....so for example, I know I am going to pass, I immediately double tap the accelerator, transmission takes 3-5s to get into the right gear, once it’s done I then start the passing maneuver...

File under: problems you never have in an EV.

Can’t wait for the F150 EV, Rivian, and Bollinger trucks to get here. Brave new world.

Yup, EV are very much like CVTs - super smooth, no hard shifts....with the exception of noise.0

Re: 2019 Ford Ranger

Interesting that the Ranger is being chosen to replace military Land Rover Defenders and military Peugeot P4s (French version of the Mercedes Geländewagen).

- Ricardo has produced a highly versatile and cost-effective general service defence adaptation of Ford’s iconic Ranger product, Europe’s best-selling pickup

- The demonstrator is ideally suited as a flexible application, general purpose utility vehicle for defence, policing, security and rescue services roles

In an interview by Shaun Connors (Jane's), Paul Tarry (Operations Director Special Vehicles at Ricardo UK) said this could replace ageing military LR Defenders.
