One of my biggest pet pives
« on: July 12, 2020, 09:17:05 PM »
If you sold a car/ truck several days ago, for the love of god, take down the damn ad.

I am looking for a beater ranger.  Something  i can drive back and forth to the porperty when i dont need my diesel.   You would think they are made of gold. I am sorry, your early 2000s 4 banger 5 speed with 250k miles is not worth 6k...
I always break all the clay pigeons,  some times its even with lead.

The Ford Ranger should never have been discontinued. There was, and still is a very large market for it. The "new" Ranger is overpriced for what it is. You might just as well get a F-150. And the prices of those are getting insane as well. They put a big engine with a supercharger in this one, and it stickers for over $93,300.00!...... (1:40 in the video). And you still have a 1/2 ton truck, nothing more. Insane.

$93,300!  Wow.  For $80k I can get the Nikola truck and at least do 0-60 in under 3

Would that be seconds ?
Or minutes ?   ;D

Sold my Edge last year for $1200.  16 years in New England takes its toll but I did 90% of the work myself.  Lady got a steal...took less than a day to sell it!

If your heart is set on dumping $80K to $90K into a new truck. For that kind of money you can get a 4 WD 3500 Series Ram, Ford, or Chevy Crew Cab, long bed, Turbo Diesel Dually in the highest trim package offered. And you'll at least have a truck that will pull 30,000 pounds all day long. These things are nothing but high powered grocery getters.

And a substantial amount of them will be wrecked in short order. That's what happened to a lot of the SRT-10 pickups, with the 10 cylinder Viper engine in them. Kids would get them sideways, and over they would go, because of the high center of gravity. The whole damn concept is wrong.

  0-60 in 2.9 seconds (electric truck)  600 mile range for a mere $80k.  Now taking reservations.

The carmakers dropped all of the mid-sized trucks (except the Tacomas), and the market has always been hot for used ones, except maybe the S-10, it's a Chevy, so . . . .

I looked at used Dakotas a while back and was appalled at the asking prices for a 10-year old truck. The new ones are also huge compared to the older ones, and that includes the Tacomas. They are damn near full-sized now.

PS: my pickup was an 2002 F350 XLT Lariat bought used in '03 with 72k miles on it. But with the 7.3 Powerstroke, that kind of mileage is little more than a break-in mileage. I paid $28k plus my S-10 quad cab.

The new ranger  is very nice, but not 23k nice.  Its only a few thousand more and you get an f150.

They should have never dropped the ranger.

RANGER:  Plus it comes now with a 2.3 Liter (that's about 140 cubic inches) engine that works like a golf cart with auto stop-start technology.  And I thought my 4.0L was a small engine.
