2019 Ford Ranger – 5 Misses

What We Didn’t

Ford got totally wrong with the 2019 Ranger.

By SID297

Earlier this week we published a list of what we here at SVTP consider to be 5 of the best features of the upcoming 2019 Ford Ranger.  However, with the good comes the bad.  While this is purely an opinion piece, we believe this list tracks right to the heart of former Ranger owners.  Traditionally, Ranger buyers seemed to like their trucks more ‘trucky’ than most other truck buyers.  So it stands to reason our list is made up of those burlier features that make a small truck more capable and engaging.  Without further adieu, here is SVTP’s list of Five 2019 Ford Ranger Misses.

2019 Ford Ranger – 5 Hits

What We Liked

Ford got a lot right with the 2019 Ranger.

It’s been a couple weeks since the 2019 Ford Ranger was introduced at the 2018 North American International Auto Show, and we’ve had time to digest some of the information presented with it.  I have to say that it is a good looking truck, and I’m really looking forward to getting behind the wheel of one.  While that’s going to be a bit farther down the road, enough time has passed for us absorb the information Ford has provided us thus far.  So here are the Five Hits we here at SVTP see with the 2019 Ford Ranger.

It’s been about a year since Ford announced that the Ranger would be returning to US roads.  In that time we’ve seen a few prototypes running around, and had a recent introduction at the 2017 North American International Auto Show.  Two days ago we saw the reveal of the Raptor Ranger for foreign markets, but it’s still debatable whether we’ll be seeing that particular Hi-Po Ford on our shores.  However, until we know something more concrete about whether or not we’ll be getting a Ranger Raptor here think it would be a good idea to delve into what we would expect from such a Ford.  This is our TOP 9 (Ain’t nobody got time for 10) List of features we want to see in a US-Spec Ford Ranger Raptor.

When you really have to get the groceries.

By SID297

Once you’ve owned a Terminator you’ll never be the same man again.  No matter what car you get next you’re always going to be longing for the raw-untamed fury that was SVT’s final Cobra (at least for the time being).  So what happens when you have to do the responsible thing and buy a new ride that’s a little more family friendly than a Snake Car?  Well if you’re long-time SVTP Member CobraBob (“Bob Arthur”) you turn to the 2.7L Twin-Turbo Ford Edge Sport.
