    J-150 got a reaction from 1926mercury in New Ranger or lost buyers what does Ford want ??   
    A dedicated platform for 50k units just cannot contribute enough profit. Ford would have to sell the Rangers at such a high cost that people would just move to competitors or the F150
     
     
    All other lower volume vehicles (Flex, Lincolns etc) are at much higher stickers and on shared platforms.

    "seeing" many is not a gauge of success.
     
    In my area I see a ton of Freestyles, but we know how well they sold on a national level.
     
    Also, let'snot compare stickers. Let's compare real world selling price. In my area, F150s always have more cash on the hood than Rangers. Thus, bringing them closer together in price.

    Nissan has already done that with the Titan and Frontier so it can be done.
     
    And with so many common parts, and I would assume assembly location, it would not require a lot of investment.

    I agree. The ST really isn't a pickup at all. An SUV with an open bed is about all.
     
     
    There just isn't a big enough market for small trucks right now. With the advances being made in large trucks, there is very little real world difference in FE and price. At least not enough to warrant a dedicated platform.

    well, stop being so f**king dumb and I won't have to call it out.
     
    Show us the business case to make the Ranger and I will retract everything I said and offer a public apology.
     
    Until then, you are just being a braggart and a crybaby.

    fucktards like you are what drove Ford to the brink in the first place.
     
    Do us a favor. Just shut up and sit down before you fall down. You don't know what you are talking about. Everytime you open your mouth the same BS comes out. Which is that you know more than Mulally and Fields.
     
    Just go the hell away dipshit. You offer nothing.

    No. You are just an arrogant dip$hit that tries to brag abut his vehicles on an internet forum.
     
    Which tells me no such vehicles exist. They are only in your mind.
     
     
     
     
    You have yet to show us how Ford can make this vehicle at a profit. Apparently you know more than Mulally and Fields. So the onus is on you to show it.
     
     
    Otherwise you are just a fucktard

    No surprise you found one. Every GM dealer I have driven past ovr the past month (must be 15 different dealers) have had at least a half-dozen visible from the road. No knowing how many more in the back or in the showroom.
     
     
    Given how many are sitting on lots collecting dust, I hope they knocked many thousands off the sticker.

    J-150 reacted to DC Car Examiner in My comparison: 2010 small SUVs   
    The 2010 Escape still looks and feels much more like the 2001 inside and out than a 2010 Equinox like a 2002 Vue. Whether that's a factor of how much or how little has changed, I don't know; perhaps it was intentional preservation. (There was certainly more about the 2001 Escape than the 2002 Vue that was worth preserving.)
     
    But regardless, yes, it is indeed worth mentioning what GM was able to build out of a vehicle as lousy as the 02 Vue.

    Mercury is just getting in the way.
     
    As with all former holdings, it is a distraction.
     
     
     
    Take a fully loaded, top-of-the-line Fusion and put it beside a MkZ. Where does the Milan fit in between?
     
     
     
     
    Time for Ford to focus on fewer and better. It is the new nature of the auto marketplace.

    J-150 got a reaction from SneakyE in Honda Ridgeline going bye bye?   
    is this in reference to your dumbass mulch comment?
     
    The ST is a POS. Does nothing well.
     
     
    Oh yes, I'm going to tow a 30' cabin cruiser with my Ridgeline.
     
    Give it up Chico. The Ridge is/was an SUV with open bed. Advertising references to full size competitors was all about chest thumping for buyers. It was an Ad Agency play and you fell for it if you think Honda was serious. The Ridge could work on a construction site about as well an Accord would do police service.
     
    Kind of like how all those small dicked losers with too much back hair grunt about their Hemi whilst driving around in their Rams. Knuckle dragging chest thumpers. Only in the Ridgeline they were chest thumpers that wore Dockers and spent their weekends driving the kids to soccer games and ballet practice.

    How often do people haul mulch for godsakes!
     
     
    You don't like it. We get it. But you are hating because it is a Honda. If Ford used this design you'd be all over it. Oh wait. Ford is using underbed storage in the Sport Trac.
     
    The Ridgeline is a nice package for what it is. It is an SUV with an open cargo area, versus enclosed. That's all it was ever meant to be. It was never supposed to be a Silverado/Ram/F150 replacement.
     
    Remember what brought this truck about. The entire pickup/SUV craze when gas was cheap. The craze that gave Ford 4 separate SUVs of varying sizes. It gave us the Avalanche. And the Titan and Tundra. The Commander and Armada. The Porshe Cayenne and Hummer. Where are all these trucks now?
     
    Titan soon to be dead. Tundra sales in the toilet.
     
    Hummer dead.
    Explorer to unibody.
    Expedition to be brought back in line with the F150
    Excursion dead
    Commander dead
    Armada most likely to die with the Titan.
    Trailblazer dead.
    Durango dead.
     
     
    Keep that in mind with your hating. It is just a function of the market.
