The title says it all. I'll be ready for a new truck in 2012 or 2013. With no Ranger I'll probably go with the Frontier.

What are you going to do?

Good question.

But who knows? Maybe Ford will change its mind about letting the "global" model sell in the U.S. by that time.

I have no idea. My 2000 has 150,000 and I plan driving it for another 150,000. I'll let you know in 11 years or so

Keep driving the one I've got, who cares if they don't make them anymore? Buy a used one

Besides, the Ranger is among the most reliable small pickup trucks. They will be around for a while. Ford needs to get a clue though. I and many others have no interest in a bigger Ranger, it defeats the whole point. And the F150 does not replace the Ranger, even with the new engine lineup, the highway fuel mileage of the new V6 isn't as good as the average mixed mileage of the 2.3L.

At 108,000 I feel my 2003 is just broken in. I'm keeping it.

Maybe if enough people keep fixing and driving Rangers they could develop a cult following like the Jeep CJ's/Wranglers have.

I like my 2000, w/ 135k and still goin strong. Hopefully it'll last until ford sees the light and realizes that not everyone wants to drive a F150.

I agree...If I wanted a full size truck I would've bought one by now

buy low and sell high. Plenty of cheap good rangers around right now, future is that there will be less and less of them.
