Re: 2021 Ford Ranger?
From my circle and forums I read (mainly UK & German based) diesel is a bad word for new car buyers. That said diesel will always have its fans, plus the manufacturers especially Ford are pushing diesel engine vehicles down some markets throats. Which I think is hurting sales and customer perception.
Diesel has been kept alive IMO by the corporate fleet business. The kick backs and other favors from the Manufacturers made for gravy train diesel sales. But new regs etc are making diesel not so attractive, even with the lowering of the cost of diesel vehicles to be more in line with petrol vehicles diesel sales are disappearing.
