I have always been a Ford fan, and am on my third Ford (Mustang, Ranger and current Explorer Sport Trac). But Ford really screwed the pooch by not replacing the Ranger. I will not buy a huge F-150. Ever. And they site declining Ranger sales as their reason. Of course sales were declining- the Ranger was ancient!! If they brought the new world Ranger with a modern engine (preferably diesel), I would trade in my poor mileage and poor handling Sport Trac tomorrow.

I was hoping Ford would have removed their heads from their butts by now. My current daily driver is a 2007 Sport Trac which is very similar to the T6 Ranger Wildtrak. I have never owned anything but Fords my entire life but I have no desire to drive a HUGE F-150 everyday either. I was also looking at replacing my 99 Cobra with a Boss 302 but I decided I wasn't buying anything from a company that thinks it knows better than me what I need.

I was looking forward to being able to buy my fifth Ranger, even if I wasn't happy that it was growing in size, it was still better than a full-sized truck. Then word comes out they wouldn't sell it here, and the Colorado wasn't coming for years.I considered a Nissan Frontier, but ended up opting for an Escape. I've had 2 full-sized trucks, and don't want another -- they're over kill for me needs. Still want another Ranger, but Ford is dropping the ball by waiting for GM to take the lead here.... They could have owned the market already!

Ford is notorious for dismissing the U.S. market, not only for its Ranger, but the Falcon, UTE (an el-Camino style truck), sporty Fiesta coupe, but they could partially redeem themselves by giving U.S. consumers the same opportunities as world citizens have. They may find themselves alone as GM will be building the Colorado/Canyon, Chrysler is still thinking about a Dakota replacement, and Nissan, Toyota, and the Mazda Ridgeline will keep mid-sized buyers happy.
