  1. Those mirror mounts are quite....large and extend way in front of the windshield. I certainly hope it doesn't look like that (or looks better in person).
  2. Is a removable roll cage something that's really needed? Maybe it's just me, but I can't see anyone going through the trouble of removing it. I don't mean to poo poo it, but it's something that screams of "we need to be different for the sake of being different". On a side note, that beltline looks high, but the Wranger is very similar. If you look where the b-pillar is at shoulder height, they are similar. The rollbars sit under the roof, so the look lower then where the top of the roof actually would be.

    What is this Ford SUV

    Everest is great looking until you get to the rear. It suffers from minivan butt.

    Ford Trademarks Black Diamond Name

    That’s gonna be their “Rubicon” I bet.
  5. Sure, it is TSB: 19-2052 - 2019 Ranger - Engine Cold Start Runs Rough / Rough Shifting Transmission Note: I bought one of the original Ranger builds when it first came out. This is only for vehicles built on or before 11-Feb-2019. If yours was built after that, it should already have the newer software.
  6. I had my trans reflashed and it’s smooth as butter. I don’t find the engine noisy or buzzy. It’s a pocket sized monster when it comes to power though.
  7. Yeah it was originally announced it was only free for the first year, then there would be a subscription fee. Glad they didn't do that. That being said, I don't really use it whole lot. I have remote start on my Ranger and I think I used it once just to see it work. It is kinda nice to see how much gas is in the truck though when I cant remember..I know I need to leave 10 minutes earlier to hit the gas station.

  9. Well, to be fair, most people shop on price. The two vehicles were within $100 of each other. The fact you get much more for the same price is the point of the article. Let's put it this way. A Mercedes GL can cost quite a bit more then a Navigator in top-end trims after piling the options on, but we would most likely call the Navigator the better value and not offer any complaints if it won a comparison test.

    2021 Chevrolet Colorado Revealed

    This is just the ZR2, the other trims will be shown off on Thursday. At first glance, it is awful. Same with the second.
  11. https://media.chevrolet.com/media/u.../Pages/news/us/en/2019/oct/1008-colorado.html DETROIT — Today, Chevrolet debuts a new look for its Colorado midsize truck franchise. The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado will make its first public appearance at the 2019 Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Classic on Oct.10, driven by Hall Racing. The 2021 Colorado ZR2 will then debut at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. The Colorado lineup will now feature greater differentiation from trim to trim and the addition of the new “Sand Dune Metallic” exterior paint color option available on the Z71 and ZR2 models. All Colorado variants will also include revised front Chevy “bowtie” emblems and embossed “Chevrolet” tailgates in place of the traditional Chevy bowtie on the rear end of the vehicles. “We’ve sold 520,000 Colorado pickups in five years through a relentless, foot-on-the-gas approach to product and feature updates,” said Bob Krapes, director of marketing, Chevrolet Trucks. “With its new-look front end and tailgate, Colorado will now have a more aggressive appearance to match its award-winning capability.” The WT, LT and Z71 Colorado trim levels will all receive updated center bars, lower fascias and front skid plates for 2021. WT and LT will feature all-new gold Chevy bowtie logos, while Z71 receives a black bowtie logo. The ZR2 off-road performance variant will receive a new appearance to match its standout capability. ZR2 will be the only Colorado model to feature the all-new, lettered, flow-through “Chevrolet” front fascia. ZR2’s new front end provides drivers with improved visibility and looks even more aggressive, which adds to its dynamic, “segment of one” appearance. ZR2, with its revolutionary, segment-exclusive Multimatic DSSVTM position-sensitive dampers, standard front and rear electronic locking differentials, 2-inch suspension lift, 3.5-inch wider track, off-road rocker protection, cast iron control arms, Autotrac transfer case, and multiple skid plates, will now come equipped with standard red tow hooks as well. The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado goes on sale next year. Pricing will be announced closer to production. All 2021 Colorado models will be built at General Motors’ Wentzville Assembly Center in Wentzville, Missouri.
  12. I think the part that makes the Escape look a bit cheap is the contours of the dash around the HVAC controls. It is molded plastic conforming to the contours of the HVAC controls where the others make use of different textures and pieces to mask that. The Escape has a 90's / 00's feel in that area where the others put a bit more thought into making it look a bit more upscale. Minor thing, but does stand out a bit to me.
  13. But also look back at the last time they tried splitting the market.... Flex and Explorer. Two enter, only one shall survive. A lot of it has to do with Ford's pathetic marketing and forgetting about vehicles after 6 months, but I've got a better feeling about this working out than not.

    What does a Mustang II Cobra II have to do with Australia? (PS: I had one but not with all the stickers by the time it got to me!)

    Auto stop start eliminator available

    What a lot of guys on the Ranger forum are doing is plugging in a nightlight or glade plugin into the rear 110V plug. Keeps the start/stop from activating and keeps the truck smelling nice for a whopping $3. 😁
