Ford Ranger IV
I own a 2002 Ranger XLT FX4. I have had no mechanical problems whatsoever with my truck. There are a few irritating design features, such as the overly sensitive turn signal indicator and the lack of window sill gutters (if I open my window after rain or even dew, my lap gets covered in water!), but its been a great truck.
Next year, I am gonna be in the market for a new pick-up. I am a loyal Ford owner, but frankly, Ford has absolutely nothing coming up in their future vehicles that interest me. I WANT a 4 DOOR SuperCrew RANGER! Its already sold in Mexico, so I don't understand why Ford won't bring it here. ???
I've heard the "well they have the SportTrac" before....frankly, I don't like the SportTrac....its a choppy design, has a nearly useless and small bed, and well, frankly its a "girl's truck".
I also understand that Ford has no plans on investing any big money on a Ranger redesign anytime soon. You'd think in order to keep folks interested, they'd introduce new models ala Toyota Tundra (Tundra, Tundra StepSide, Tundra Crew)....adding an MP3 and calling it a Tremor, is NOT a new model.
Almost every Truck maker selling in the USA has a REAL mid-size TRUCK to offer, except Ford. Meanwhile, Toyota and Nissan are about to release new versions of the Tacoma and Frontier and even GMC FINALLY got around to releasing the Canyon/Colorado....yet Ford sits on a pickup released in current platform in 1992.
Whats the deal?
