With the recent reveal of the Bronco, I was wondering what features you guys think will translate over to the new (2022?) Ranger. Here are a few things I'm potentially excited for:
Optional 2.7L twin-turbo V6
7-speed manual (on the 2.3L)
Backseat 60/40 split
I have a 4x4 and until they offer automatic 4x4 mode in the Ranger, it doesn't hurt to keep a little weight in the bed -- if nothing else for a smoother ride! I live in SE Michigan and unless I'm driving in a blizzard or the roads haven't been plowed, I'm most likely in 4x2 mode. A little extra...
I'm rolling 31/32 at the moment with the stock Dynapro ATMs, but a hell of a lot better than the 48 psi I received at delivery. Not as smooth as my '93 F-150 was, but that was a bit heavier and slower -- even with the 5.8!
I have a regular 4x4 and notice the bounciness as well. I've gotten used to it so it's not terribly annoying, but I've noticed a significantly smoother ride when there's weight in the bed.
I plan to throw 2-4 sandbags in the bed this winter, but if I like the ride better maybe I'll just leave...
