Ford Ranger Question

They are the type of company that wants to sell you your next car as opposed to the next five to ten cars. JLR is the same and so are the three big Germans. You need to look to the Far East, Japan and South Korea for a longer term outlook towards their customers I'm afraid.
The issue is that short-termism pays in the short term and as long as we are mugs enough to go back to them again and again, its all a big win for them. However, both Ford and GM have had a severely declining market share over the last few decades, yet VW seem to be bullet-proof despite their average reliability and crooked dealings with emission regulations and having substantially compensated American customers but, effectively, told European customers to get stuffed. They have single-handedly destroyed the diesel car market and people still buy their wares. :banghead:

Despite liking the current Ranger with ten speed auto very much, I'm not at all sure that I'll be buying one. The issue with pickups is that there is a fast shrinking choice. I suppose a HiLux would be the logical choice but I've never liked the driving position, the ride or the performance of them, or indeed the styling of recent models inside or out.

Goes to show, ford are always on the brink then come back, never hear of the likes of Hyundai or Kia struggling in the same way as ford or GM being bailed out by governments etc. Short sighted of ford on this!

just to add that the ranger will get stuck in its own shaddow if its an auto on a grass field, got tired of being towed out with it.
I have to say I rate my ranger as great in the field it is equally as good as the old pajeros we used to run and way better than the landcruisers and troopers we had. I find if you turn on 4wd going in the field Ive never had a problem

With award presentations by Tom Bradshaw, Vice President of NFU, 24 farms took home the evening’s top awards for highest yield and highest potential yield achieved for wheat, winter and spring barley, oats, and oilseed.
