Seems stupid but I tend to be a fan of tire rotations every 5k, and, with all my FUD and whatnot, I'd rather do 5k OCI's. Pulling a wheel IS stupid to do an oil change but so is pulling an intake manifold to do plugs, or pulling engine mount to do a timing belt, and a bunch of other things. In reality, if it's only every few years... or "only" pulling a wheel... then it's a first world problem.

I think some here are stuck in the glory days of a regular cab manual 2WD Ranger that the real world North American market has shifted away from.

That being said, everything I have seen and read of this new Ranger shows it to be priced pretty right and competitive with the GM and Toyota models it competes against. Ford's decision for just one engine option and powerful one at that, is a good choice.

The various TFL Youtube channels have had some good videos on the new Ranger and comparisons against the Tacoma and the F150. Model for model against the F150 with similar options, the Ranger is tracking $10K-$12K less than the F150 in cost. If I was back in the mid to smaller truck market, I would give the new Ranger serious consideration.

No redeeming qualities other than being sort of smaller than full size. Yeah, no thanks.

Previous Ranger even in XLT with 4x4 was priced around the cost of an economy car. This thing is $40k+ with a gas 4-cylinder and 2WD? Wow. They can keep it.

I love the looks of it actually. My brother had that same power train combo in his mustang and it is a blast to drive. My issue really with all midsize pickups is the price just doesn't make it worth it to me

I think it's a great offering. If we didn't pull a camper I'd give it strong consideration - hard to part with a fullsize bed though.

Lots of Ozers pull campers...6000lb towing capacity.

There's a family SUV version of them as well, the Everest. A mate's got one and he drags race cars around with it all the time...

BTW, speaking of Everest, here's a pretty one I saw today with flared guards.

it's hard to fathom a 4-pot pulling 6,000 lbs but I'm totally rooting for it to prove itself. And from experience, for that kind of weight I absolutely want the wheelbase and track width of a full size. That said, I'd much rather commute in a smaller truck than a fullsize... until the weekend, when plywood, etc., has to find its way home regularly. Living with Ford's 2.7L, I think if anyone is poised to make this work with a 4-cyl they are, though we all know that the 3.5 and to a lesser degree the 2.7 have both had some teething pains. The 2.7 has such a wonderful torque curve that the 2.3 could be the next bar to be met.
