Lord give me patience, when will it end?

Ford just announced a new trim package for the Ranger. You guessed it. A "Black Out" package.

I find it very difficult to understand why, in CR's reliability study, Subies come out numero uno by a large margin.

To some extent, you are all missing the point.

Ford decided that if someone wanted a inexpensive (oops, almost said "cheap") truck, it would sell them an F-150 XL, and gave up on the small truck...

I don't have it on my phone and would not pay extra for it in a car. Came with the Expy.

I use paper maps whenever possible.

In my area, Ford is heavily discounting the 302A package ($1750 discount off of $4350 MSRP) and practically giving away Navigation ($500 discount off of $795 MSRP).

Demonstrable lack of value.

A local dealer has lease deals on both Rangers and F-150.

Ranger is an XLT Crewcab. MSRP right at $31,000. Deal is $369/mo for 35 months + $1500 down (month 1 payment included). Total of...
