I had one 14 years ago. It was a 1990 and I liked that little truck.
RIP Dakota

MY question is, what are Ford and Dodge Planning? They are only going to sell full size trucks, or are they going to come out with new models? I'm assuming new models that are unibody, possible FWD primary. I hope not, because that would make those faggy trucks.

I heard 4ft beds on 1500 chassis with cvt transmission and a crotch post for your vagina, because if you buy one of them well you obviously have a vagina.

fords decision is primarily based on that a ranger cost just as much as the f-150. And with the new eco boost v-6 will get better mileage. I personally love my rangers. Tho they get shit mileage. best ever with my 97 was 20, with my 01 22. But thats all hwy 65. city it drops to around 14/15. Also the ranger sales have dropped. Mainly because the ranger has not changed since 1993

Ford is still building rangers for mexico and overseas. They look like the sport trac version of their new edge. Looks like shit imo. But, they come with turbo diesels, 4wd and 6 spd manual trans

both ford and dodge think there is no market for a small truck, but dodge was making a midsize truck that was starting to be a full size and the price overlay between the mid and full was nill so business case was made to cut it from production.

ford on the other hand wont give us the new ranger saying if you want a small cheap truck buy the v-6 striped f-150. what about all the small business' that use rangers for parts truck runners and all the old men who need a little truck for yard work and honey do list.

my bet dodge comes out with a small front driver based off the minivan and if it takes off ford follows suite

EXACTLY! all of the napa, autozone, advance auto all use rangers or canyons to my knowledge.

As a ranger owner I want a small truck. I dont want a full size.
