Gladiator is FCA’s only midsize truck and last I heard they weren’t bringing back the Dakota. I’m not sure ford could justify having two midsize trucks. I think it would make more sense to have a baby bronco truck so you fill another segment with a compact truck like the original ranger.
I hadn't heard of this news. Looks like USPS is going to split its purchase between 4 manufacturing facilities. Makes me wonder if Rivian would still have a chance. If their price is low enough, I'd say it's possible. Short daily trips will save them fuel costs in the long run. Then it's a matter of any maintenance issues.
One video reviewer claimed the rear storage area volume on the hybrid is the same as a non-hybrid. If I were to bet, I'm guessing the hybrid loses that rear seat moving ability. Or it has been shortened.
