    $46K for a Ranger? Holy FUCK Ford has fucked that up! And you'd think at that price the first ones delivered wouldn't be the color of mustard puke.

    I read that they can tow 7500 pounds. Bullshit! My camper is about 5500 pound and you could not pay me to tow it with a Ranger. My 2000 5.4 F150 struggles sometimes in the hills and with wind.

    And if you are buying a $45K+ truck and you buy a Ranger over a F150, PT Barnum was right.

    There's a sucker born every minute.

    Don't you mean 2.3 Ecoboost?

    Only with a 2.3 Ecoboost and 10 speed. A base engine 4x4 SCREW Lariet F150 will probably approach $60K.

    EDIT: Speced out a fully loaded F150 with the 2.7EB base engine $58,600 MSRP.

    Today's $45k would have been about $30,000 in 1999.

    you cannot compare costs of a car/truck today from one of 20+ years ago - even adjusting the $ for inflation - the differences in features/tech/reliability/safety/efficiency are far different

    Not all Ford's fault. Vehicles in 1993 didn't have all the tech and "safety" things that today's vehicles have or are required to have. That shit costs money. 1993 was a simpler time.

    I couldn't build my truck for the 2019 MY, Ford no longer offers a moon roof for the Scab, & did away with the cd players.
