  1. Yes. No dollar numbers and expect high. Won't even consider purchasing until been out a year minimum and get an idea on problems potential. Everything said about what they are coming out with is nice featured.
  2. I drive Ford F150s and am considering a hybrid version. At this time however I am waiting to see about the Ram hybrid. I like the thought process behind it. Think Ford had better do some rethinking and consider what Ram is doing. 650 mile range and over 600 hp is impressive.
  3. This guy sure seems to make things up as he goes along. First he says steel tarriffs were for national security whatever the f that was supposed to mean. Latest is because of Canadas' dairy tarriffs. Of course he neglected to mention the heavy subsidising of Americano dairy farmers which Canada does not do. Also that 5 times as much American dairy products go to Canada versus the other way. Idiot probably doesnt even know facts just flaps his gums. Canada is rightly becoming frustrated with the US as he seems to be well supported. Myself I think I will just fly over the US to Mexico or Europe for a winter vacation versus Florida. My little act of protest haha.
  4. From a Canadian perspective I think (hope) these tariffs and other Trump international antics may be a blessing in disguise. Short term pain for long term gain. Canada has far too long been reliant on the US as the major trading partner. Time for Canada to go to work and create more diversity in sourcing alternatives rather than picking the low hanging fruit as in the US just because it is next door. IMO the US can not be relied upon anymore to stick to international agreements ala global warming withdrawal, Iran agreement, NAFTA ..... I hope Canada can make the recent trade agreements with the TransPacific and European work. A good step in turning away from the US as the major partner in trade.
  5. So if this truck is not being produced for a year why would I be getting advertising on it in my email already? Cheesy!
  6. I wonder how much weight difference there will be between this and the F150 if they stick with steel. I hope there is significant fuel mileage difference unlike the old Ranger which from my experience was very poor for the vehicle size if not worse than the full size. IMO and for my purpose this would be a definite consideration. If only 10% or so difference may as well stick with an F150 with more capacity.

    Ranger coming to the US 2020MY

    Anyone know whether it is going to be aluminum?
  8. Any possibility the Ranger will be aluminum (I hope)? or maybe discussed already!
  9. Not trying to be negative but: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/fords-europe-sales-rise-6-101810295.html
  10. If both the Ranger and F150 are available in China and other countries why cant ford justify both in NA? Is it the cost of meeting regulations, competition against F150 profits...? Dont know and just asking!
  11. You pussies. Try driving on this crap every spring. http://cjme.com/article/197309/sask-highways-minister-agrees-highways-220-322-terrible How do you think autonomous cars would handle this? haha

  13. Well at least one NA manufacturer made a vehicle in the top 10. http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2016/03/19/these-two-automakers-absolutely-dominated-the-list.aspx?source=yahoo-2&utm_campaign=article&utm_medium=feed&utm_source=yahoo-2
  14. Just a question for you techies.. Would the frames on these need to be as heavy duty as say an f250 or 350. Could they be aluminum for weight loss?
