    i love the new competition. no one company can sit and rest on their reputation.

    my 2006, i love; but the new rigs have me wondering. i've heard toyota is exploring diesel in the two trucks.

    Seems like it'll be a nice truck. Especially with the eco boost engine. Might make Toyota rethink a few things. I just can't get over how the rangers front end looks like a ford taurus

    Hopefully it is a good truck. Competition is good for the consumer :). Helps spur innovation and keeps pricing down. Though it'll be a long time until we see how reliable it is compared to the Tacoma.

    Yup, sounds fun

    “all-new 2019 Ranger is powered by a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that has been specifically engineered to optimize your efficiency and capability. This 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine is able to do that thanks to its direct fuel injection technology, its twin-scroll turbocharger and its enhanced 16-valve design. This engine also features a forged-steel crankshaft and connecting rods for added durability, along with chain-driven overhead cams. The 2019 Ford Ranger’s power, efficiency and capability is further optimized thanks to its class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission.”

    I don’t really care if that truck chooches harder than my truck.....the styling is so boring, I think I’d go nuts looking at it.

    I honestly hope the ranger does well even better then Colorado. I still prefer the Tacoma hands down.

    Price point wise, it will be less than the Tacoma as a base model for each trim, but not as feature rich. To make the Ranger equal with features, it easily exceeds the Tacoma’s price point making it ultimately more expensive. Needless to say, Ford will offer huge discounts to break into the market, but they’ll also be eating away at their own F150 model sales.

    Not being biased because I own a Tacoma, and I WILL give credit where credit is due, but in my opinion the ranger still looks blah front end design wise...like something cool maybe 10 years ago? The Tacoma next to it looks so much more modern day and aggressive. I guess I still made the right decision!

    If the F150 gets any bigger, it cannot continue to be considered mid-sized unless they classify the ranger as compact truck lol...the F150 is larger than the Tacoma but still considered mid sized. Does anyone know if that is a classification a manufacturer gives their own vehicles or a market/industry classification/standard that a manufacturer gets from some 3rd party?

    Not sure, but the entire F-Series is lumped into one category against the Tacoma if I interpret the sales data correctly.

    I don’t think the F150 is considered a midsize truck. It is a full size truck in the same category as a Ram/Chevy/GMC 1500, Tundra and Nissan Titan.
