I just took delivery of a new 2011 Ranger. My old 95 (puchased in 2007 for $1500) had about 200,000 miles on it...it gave me another 80,000 and cost a grand total of $17.00 in parts (starter brushes). I had my heart set on either a new Nissan Frontier or a Toyota Tacoma....but the longer my 95 B-2300 soldiered on..the more I fell in love with the Ranger series... Tough, simple and less than $16,000 Canadian brand new.....it has no equal. While lacking in the sophistication and amenities of it's Japanese competitors....I was specifically looking for simplicity...hell..my kids had to ask how to use the hand-crank windows! It was impossible to find exactly what I wanted at a dealer....they all stock the higher profit margin V-6's...and I hate V6's! (just why would you put a big engine in a little truck anyways?? ...) I wanted the 2.3L with Air and 5sp and in an Extra-Cab body....so in late August I placed my order from the factory before the line shut down for good.. The order was sent about a week before FoMoCo cut off factory orders to Canada and in late Oct, I received my new charcoal grey, extra-cab, 5sp, 4 cyl Ranger....Sweet! I have some issue with how it arrived (without jump-seats and with 4.10 gearing....and I hope I can find some answers here. Looking forward to reading and posting and mostly enjoying my little 2011 Ranger... Nice Job Ford.....I think your making a big mistake in canceling Ranger production..
