    I wish my 4x2 truck had a stance like that instead of sitting rear high

    I would guess minor tech changes, reshuffles or feature adds like Alexa, etc. Its nice to see though.

    I hear what you are saying, we all like it to some degree or we obviously would NOT have voted with our dollars and bought one. I'd be interested to see what it evolves into and judge it at that point. Also how the one I just bought 4 mos ago ages. If FoMoCo is smart they are taking in all the comments good/bad for the 6th Gen-version.

    Hi Anthony,

    Unfortunately I cannot give Ford Marketing high marks for being on the pulse of the industry. Been burned by them so many times....I really distrust them to make the the right decision for Gen 6... I also believe that the Aussie engineers are again lead on the program..

    Same here. Had a pre-cursor 1976 Courrier, 1984 Ranger, 1990 Ranger, 1994 Ranger, 2005 Ranger, in other words, all the previous generations accounted for. I was forced get a truck two years ago, so settled for basic F150. Nice truck, but have been lusting over the Gen 5. Thought I'd wait 'til these 2020's, but with the massive incentives announced last week, we jumped. Simply aren't gonna likely see $8-$9K off sticker again 'til late model year. No reason to wait and so glad we didn't. Don't have 100 miles on it yet.

    I think this is a bug in the configurator. I added and removed the chrome package and that resulted in the Sport Appearance Package being substituted in and I could not get rid of it.

    Don't hold me to this, but once you're beyond the XLT 300 package, the Sport Appearance is now standard. You can substitute the sport appearance with Chrome Package. If you delete the Chrome Package, the Sport Appearance goes back in. That's what I found anyhow. I saw this change months ago when Ford released the fleet ordering guide. This is the way I understood it, in any case.

    Might be an eight year old design (which is totally fine by me) but the drivetrain and tech is nowhere near that. I knew as soon as I drove it that regardless of the ROT Ranger, this one had everything I could need (CarPlay, led head/fog lights, etc) and a blast of a drivetrain to boot. New stuff will always come but I couldn’t be happier. For that reason, I’ve been completely comfortable investing thousands into mine to build exactly what I want to drive for years to come.

    Yes I agree. I didn't want the sport package but to get the 302A package l had to get it. I hated the wheels so I ordered 18 inch wheels for an extra charge. I might stop by the local body shop and see if they will paint the bumpers white to match the rest of the truck. Dealer says the build date is December 16, hopefully delivered to the dealership by the first part of January

    Hi Anthony,

    I have limited interface with them as I retired in 2002 and at that time the Ranger was produced in Thailand with Aussie engineering the lead. The engineers are certainly capable, but they are European bent if you know what I mean and not all that familiar with Yanks and our vehicle usages, tastes wishes and desires and so on. They are getting an eye full when they test at the Ford Phoenix Test Track and immersion into the North American Culture... Eg...we do not like warm beer...

    The final sign off of a Ranger will be with USA Bigwigs and if they feel something is to European, they may direct changes to the vehicle

    Sorry I cannot really answer your question directly...I did sit down with one Aussie Engineer this summer at the Dearborn Inn and we chatted for several hours...He was very bright and very capable.

    Best,

    So very true, when I special ordered my 2020 back in August I drafted a document which essentially stated that the dealer was NOT to additional options/equipment to my truck. As part of the required deposit, I made the salesperson and sales manager endorse this document.
    The sale will be consummated via Ford's X Plan pricing agreement which clearly states that all such added nonsense must be disclosed on the pricing agreement. Others here and other forums have said that this precludes the dealer from adding bogus items to the vehicle, it does not, it merely states that such items must be listed on the sales agreement.
    I worked as a mechanic for almost 14 years at a Lincoln-Mercury/Honda dealership, each and every vehicle prior to being sold had at least 2 worthless items added to them, such as a $1200 "paint sealant" and $500 "fabric upholstery sealant".
    The most ludicrous item was the "theft deterrent" glass etching lol, as though a thief would pass up on a car which was so equipped.
