Nice! That's super exciting. What color are you looking to get?

Oxford White. It is a work truck and being in construction it stays clean longer!

Had a chat session this morning with Amy at ford.com. She claims my truck is in production and now has a dealer ETA of 1/13/19. Of course it will depend on when the okay to buy order is given but we are getting close.

The really depressing thing is the trade in value on the $40K Fusion that I bought 2 years ago. Those things tank on resale.

I wouldn't hold my breath. You'd think someone would be seeing a finished vehicle by now but I haven't. I work next to a large Ford dealership in Ohio. In the immortal words of Sgt Shultz of Hogan's Heros, "I see nothing!".

There are some dealers that have taken delivery and have pictures on their web site.

I will post a picture on here when they call me and tell me it has been delivered. I have ordered many vehicles from this dealer and they have never done me wrong. Patience grasshopper...patience.

I did find one https://www.hawkford.com/inventory/a...int-Charles-IL

Don’t get me wrong I like the new ranger I just can’t beli the price they are asking for these things. Might as well get a more capable F150. I would think they wou,d separate the price point between the two a little more.

i agree, the pricing is absolutely insane.

If you price out a comparably equipped Colorado ZR1 it is within 8% of the Ranger. I have been driving Ford trucks for over 25 years and always felt that I am getting a better product and I expect to pay a little more. Also, not funded by the United States government.

My x-plan price for a fully loaded Lariat FX4 with all the options is $43,517 and sticker is $45,490. A comparably equipped F150 stickers at $59,275. There is a pretty good price point between the two.
