My brother had a 1999 ranger, and my 88 rides smoother, and is faster than his ever was. Even after the engine and transmission both were replaced.

Ranger for me. Love the BII but I love my Ranger more! Too bad Ford is killing the Ranger. Hope whatever small/ medium size truck is replacing it has a V8 in it! Maybe the new 302 thats going in the stang?

Yeah, if they have to ditch the ranger, I would love to see the F-100 come back!

Hell yes with the F100 they were faster than the F150s back in the day. Didnt the ranger replace it? I like my light weight v6 for offroading.

I believe the ranger did replace the F100 or at least it came out within 5 years after they stopped making the F100...

I think the Ranger was Ford's way of showing they were concerned about the gas price spike of the late 70's... which begs the question:

Why on earth would they be giving up the Ranger when gas prices could possibly spike again to year ago levels? I'd be interested to see Ford's sales numbers of summer 08 vs summer 09 on F150 vs. Ranger... I bet the Ranger kicked ass in 08

The ranger did replace the F100. There was actually a transition model of the truck. Theres one on my street actually. Its the F-100 Ranger. Sweet truck. If you think about it, Ford wont put a V8 in a new small truck. Ford now has the Eco-Boost. I4 enignes with I4 mpg and V6 power. V6 enignes with V6 mpg and V8 power. A new F100 with a 3.5 V6 Eco-boost... try 285 hp coming from that V6! OOooo baby!

Thats how they will put much more power into a small truck like the F100, but keep the mpg thought in it like the Ranger! This is why Ford is now #1 in everything they do!

If it aint a F-150 Raptor now that they are out... it would have to be a STX, FX4, or my favorite... King Ranch! I love the KR!
