200hp from a 4.0L is not tons cuz its old tech, the 3.7 in the F-150 makes [HTML_REMOVED]300hp from 3.7L, but its more than the 3.0, and that truck is gona last forever, I noticed the service interval is longer
I got the 2010 it was pretty stripped down but Ford was knocking 6600$ off the price … 19045$ for a 5 spd/ 4x4 with air/mags/hitch reciever I wish it had cruise but I don't cruise much anyway
google around "ford ranger" the peak in sales was 10-15yrs ago, production dropped year after year to where the sales figures were 1/4 of the peak, now if you were the CEO at Ford would you invest almost a billion getting a new small truck to the N.A. market when they aren't selling, or would ford not just try to flog f-150's … which is what they did?
sales dropped cause ford started pushing their fullsize trucks on consumers cause they make higher profit margins. of course sales are going to drop when you make the same truck with no real and no reason to buy a new one. the more expensive fuel gets the more small truck demand will increase
Ha Ha! Made you look.
