I've heard the small pickup is being re-designed and it will be reincarnated as the F-100. I suspect the Ranger name will hang around as a model or trim level designator, similar to "Raptor."

I'm just regurgitating a rumor here, take it for what its worth.

if there just changing the name that ok ... eliminating the ranger ... no way ... if anyone wants to keep the ranger, send ford letter, this happened when the tried to end the mustang and quote the CEO at the time "i received 500,000 letters calling me everything but a white boy, from people who have never even owned a mustang!" since we have email ... it should be alot easier ... anyone wana leek his email?

thank GAWD. That platform has gone unchanged since the 2nd gen explorers.. It may be reliable, but it is was out of date.. Im kind of excited to see the new concepts they have.. Keep in mind.. About 90% of all the rangers running around now or in the past 5 years have all been fleet cars.. While they make good fleet cars, it doesnt bring in enough $.. thats the same reason why ford canceled the Taurus back in 04.. I believe the ranger name WILL be back.. But it will be a completely different, improved, sexier platform! Much, like the taurus.

Looks like a cross between an F150 and a Sport Trac. Personally I hope they don't screw up a good thing. My FX4 is so durable and rugged. It is the perfect and only compact size truck left. Looks like they are moving to a mid size truck like ever one else. I have no use for a Sport Trac and a mid size sucks too much gas.

I remember when the Ranger was an upper line F series. When they took that name and stuck it on a small truck I thought it was just wrong, shows what I know.
