Default Why does Europe get to set the standard

I swear ford's trying to kill the ranger. If they did it'd be a dumb move.
I'm hoping that the ranger for america does not look like this

To me it looks like a Sport trac, in europe they call it the Ranger Wild Trac/ Ranger Thunder (Canada). Ford would be better off just renaming the sport trac. I'm telling you guys what, as a ranger enthusiest it disheartens me to see this.

I was sittin there talkin to steve about this with my dad the other week. They're prepping to put a 5.0 back in the pony anyways, a 5.0 fits in a ranger no problem. Why not just re-enforce the frame some more (im not sure if the frame is fully boxed or not) but Im sure if it could tow up to 10K lbs and a V8, truck sales for them would sky rocket.

/End rant

Im not exactly sure of that, I just dont wanna own the last of a dying breed. My engine is already extinct when it come to the ranger platform.

Found out the rangers front end is boxed frame the rest is not.

looks like a nissan exterra to me.

as for the whole v8 things. dont count on it happening anytime soon. GM has already all but canceled there development on the v8 colorado/canyon. The biog 3 are all not going to focus on mpg's and making the government happy since they gave them the loan.
