What would the ideal redesigned Ranger be like?
I would love to see a new line of 3-valve per cylinder engines with variable valve timing just like the 5.4L in the F-150. A nice strong I-4 and V-6, along with 5 or 6 speed automatics are needed in my opinion. Another thing I would like to see is Crew Cab models with a 6 foot bed option. Mid-sizing the Range will also be very important so it can compete with the larger Tacoma, Frontier, and Dakota.
Having all the safety features as standard equipment will be helpful too. 4-wheel disc breaks, 4-wheel ABS, side curtain air bags, stability control, HID headlights, etc.
After looking at all the thought and engineering Ford put into the new 2004 F-150 at http://www.thetruthabouttrucks.com, I can only hope they do the same with the Range. And for goodness’s sake do it soon!
