well yes milage is one reason and that shitty milage applies to any of the small PU's not just Ranger but I still don't think the small PU's in general carried enough, IME 5 adults in a Ranger sucks, whereas everytime I've been in a Taco its been going skiing or picking up skiers with 5 adults which is just OK so just big benough for the average family of 4 and the dog
SO IMO the new ranger has to have the same interiour size as a taco
I disagree. Sure, more than two adults is a bit of a squeeze in a Ranger, although one in the back isn't too bad. I rarely need to transport more people than that though, and that, in my opinion, was the Ranger's strength. It's far easier to park downtown or in a tight underground apartment building lot than a Taco and, with a more modern engine, could be quite a good bit more efficient.
