I think Ford is making a big mistake killing off the Ranger in North America. In my area, I see about as many late model Rangers as late model F150`s. When I bought my new 2010 Ranger in January, the salesman said that they sell about as many Rangers as F150`s. If the Ranger was not available this year, I would not have bought a F150 , so Ford would have lost the sale. Lots of people still like a small pickup, and with the Dodge Dakota, Toyota Tacoma, Nissan, & GM all selling mid size PU`s, the Ranger & Mazda are the only true small pickups left. Since Ford has saw fit to not make a manual transmission available in any F150-350, I guess they don`t want any more of my business down the road, either.
