They took the appeal of the original ranger out-- Apart from the engine which seems pretty appropriate for the application, there's not many reasons to like it. No manual trans and hideously expensive.

The author of the article made a great point-- we're getting a "new" truck in North America that was released a few years ago in other markets, so it's a bit like buying stale bread.

They never stopped production of the Ranger overseas. I remember some commercials showing the Ranger fording a stream with water going over the hood.

It looked impressive but I suspect that EcoBoost engine will go Eco-Boom with the water going into the intake.

Lack of sales, due to a.) losing the meaning of mini-truck and b.) lack of meaningful refreshes.

You had the 4.0L V6 Ford Ranger getting mileage in the mid-teens.

You had the upsized Dakota with a V6 getting mileage in the mid-teens, looking very much like a Ram from a few years back in size.

They both totally lost the concept of an ECONOMICAL small pickup truck.

Meanwhile Toyota just kept selling Tacoma's....

Yeah. If you want simple, you're gonna have to go used. Today's buyers want all the features and that makes it hideously expensive. $40k!

Tacomas also get mileage in the teens.

$ 4 a gallon gas and rebates on full-size trucks making them the same price as the mid-sizers with much less capability.

Ranger/B2300 2WD with Duratec was rated @ 29MPG with the 5sp MT; I got 31 on a 1000 mile loop to my parents in Western VA.

I basically haul stuff occasionally with mine but it is practical to be considered a DD if pressed into service.

The trend is towards crew cabs/double cabs. Many customers that want a pickup also need it to pick up the kids or whatever.

It is important that they maintain a few MPG in between these and full size … and full sized is mainly an American thing with us often having lower fuel prices and a bit more room to park in many places.
If this is a solid 10 year+ truck … it will see higher fuel prices a couple times or so …

I for one no longer want or need a 4 door full size …don’t enjoy driving them …

I think the Ranger will sell well. Particularly to many who don't "need" a truck in the first place. And, in this regard, it seems as if Ford's marketing guys have anticipated this, because those being delivered initially are mostly XLTs and Lariats with most of the options available. This results in truckloads of $45k+ Rangers -- a far cry from the basic $25k truck with the same running gear.

The turboed 4-cylinder is probably the same basic engine used in the Mustang.

Good review. I do wish they'd given the Raptor some more grunt though! I think putting the 10 speed auto behind the 3.2 diesel would've done the trick.

The 4 cylinder petrol engine they're getting in the US seems decent, wonder if it will make it to Oz?

I like it and I think it will sell well. I’ve both Chevy and Dodge half tons, a Nissan Hardbody, and 3 Rangers, and currently a Frontier. I like the midsize crew cab setup the best. While it doesn’t have the capability of current 1/2 tons it has more than enough capability for what I need to do, room for the kids, and it fits in the garage. All I tow is a little fishing boat and a 21’ camper and it handles those very well. A basic, low option Ranger was great for me years ago but what I have now is much more usable for the family. I think Ford is doing the right thing not making this bare bones. They have to make something to be competitive and I think they have done just that.

There is talk about it being an option here...the turbo will give it some torque lower in the rev range, but it won't be anywhere near a diesel. Maybe for those who just use them as a car, the 4 cyl petrol might be better.

I agree, and they'd do much better in a city environment than the diesel, not that I've experienced or heard of any DPF issues with the Rangers.

Sorry, but why would anybody want that engine? We had 2 Transit's with that engine at my old work and they were always in the shop* They also were not the best performer.



*Always emissions related that caused a power degrade situation. Other countries might not have those issues...

We don't seem to have many problems with them here...apart from the oil pump not working after an oil change, but we all heard about that one pretty quick. More a home oil change issue. The Ranger has been outselling the Toyota Hi Lux for some time now, despite Toyota dropping chunks off the price.

Yeah, as Silk said, very few issues with the 5 cylinder diesel in the Rangers here. My company has hundreds of them in service all over Oz, and they've proven very reliable. The one I'm currently driving is at 170,000km and has had nothing but regular services every 15,000km. They're the best selling vehicle in Australia, there'd be a huge outcry if the engines were no good.

Current Rangers have EGR and DPF, what extra emission gear do US spec Transits have?

As far as I know they're the same setup. Come to think of it we had 3, a '15, '16, and '17, forgot about the new one. The '15 and '16 had metal shavings go throughout the system from the fuel pump, which both had new fuel systems replaced under warranty. But after that they were never the same and would go through sensors, a DEF tank heater, and some other nick-knack issues. Would always be real interesting to have the engine go in degrade issues driving through the mountains... The '17 hadn't had issues yet before I left.

Interesting. Wonder if where they're built could be a factor? Our Rangers come from Thailand, and the general fit and finish is excellent.

Not bad looking, but too [censored] big!

I saw one up in Michigan back in September. I think they look better in person.. Very Honda Ridgeline like depending on the angle of the camera.

Just saw this article that says the left front tire has to be removed in order to change oil on the new Ranger along with removing 9 push pins to remove a cover and four other bolts for a module cover. That's for the filter and oil change.

Yes, the things that may be required -- emphasis on "may be required -- to change the oil & filter has become quite an issue for some.

FWIW, as noted on the other thread, removing the front tire isn't required; it simply ensures greater access to the oil filter via the fender well. Also, the "module cover" in question is actually a metal shield that protects the oil pan. The fact that the shield exists isn't surprising on a truck. What is surprising is the number of Saturday morning "mechanics" who find removing four bolts to gain access to the sump plug a somewhat daunting task.

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.

I'm a current Ranger owner, who was awaiting the release of the 2019 Ranger to replace my current truck.

Ford has forced me to look at the Colorado; I am not interested in a turbo four/ten speed combination, that starts at 4,500 dollars higher than the Colorado.

I have a hunch that Ford's original plan was to offer the Ranger in such a configuration; early on, news stories were run, with Ford saying that there's a need for a no frills standard cab pickup. Instead, Ford comes in with a product that starts at 4,500 dollars more than their Chevrolet & Nissan competitors.

I like the idea of a six speed, normally aspirated, Courier; I don't like the FWD configuration, nor do I like unit body construction. I expect the Courier's competition to come from Hyundai's upcoming "truck;" and with the Hyundai, I can expect reliability and value.
