  5. Hands Free driver assist Coming to Ford Vehicles, including Ranger

    Well Pride, luckily my truck did not come with ACC or lane keep assist because I'd rather be my own nanny.

  8. Trail control fault: see manual...

  10. Hands Free driver assist Coming to Ford Vehicles, including Ranger

    hmmm....not sure about this; I am already half-annoyed at the collision assist gets mad if I go to pass a vehicle without putting on the blinker-it has done that a couple of times when I had to do a quick pass to avoid some blockhead with touchy brakes...the point is: I really don't...

  19. Two Totally Useless Features As They Came From the Factory

    I have been using my rear window on warm days when it's not quite AC weather...ride home with the front driver window down and the rear window open is nice. As for needing power...I have that solved for now (my kids in back are my power window). Both my previous Rangers had the rear window which...
