The New 2016 Ford Ranger
Published November 5, 2014
The 2016 Ford Ranger is a truck we hope has everything from efficient diesels to the new 2.7 liter Ecoboost V-6 that is seen in the new 2015 F-150 (maybe 2016 Bronco). With so many engine choices from Ford we hope they deliver in giving the Ranger a big set of ball(s) bearing turbos to make the Ranger into an Airborne Ranger. We would like to think that the 2016 Ranger would soon find its way to the states but that is not likely to happen. There are likely the two-diesel options staying the same with the 2.2L and the 3.2L turbo-diesel carrying over. A special edition like the big brother Raptor has been talked about with the 2.7 liter Ecoboost but nobody from Ford will give us the definite so it only appears to be speculation.
C.E.O Alan Mulally stated that Ford Motor Company was going to have global platforms that would be shared around the world. Well for the 2016 Ford Ranger that is true unless you live in the good ol’ U.S.A. as we have possibly lost the Ranger for good. Why is the Ranger gone you ask? Because the marketing assholes think bigger is always better and now there is a full-size shrimp dick challenge to give us trucks that the owners can’t even operate without backing into school children. Dennis Leary and Sam Elliot are telling us how much bigger the truck is getting and how many creature comforts there are.
Our trucks are so big that we have cameras and sensors all over the vehicle yet if you look at 90% of the trucks they are empty and/or are towing a trailer. My friend asked me to be careful loading a target stand in the back of his truck because he didn’t want to leave marks on his bed liner. I promptly expressed the fact that he owns a fucking truck built for utility. That is the mentality of these owners as the truck is no longer a utility vehicle but a high cost staple of manliness (which is totally false). He then wrecked it after checking facebook and liking too many puppy and baby photos while driving.
Don’t get me wrong, I like big trucks but there is also the worker that needs utility as well as efficiency due to the fact that these individuals have to drive 150+ miles a day from job site to job site and is getting his/her profit margin abolished by truck, insurance and fuel payments. Not to mention if there are any stupid hippie emission taxes.
