I had heard on the news that cars/truck sales were very good. I'm not sure what's up at the Ranger plant unless the Bronco has been occupying their time, but my Ranger order will be at 10 weeks out before it hits the build week of 11/16. I think they are just testing my patience, and preparing me for the long wait ahead to get into a Bronco. :)
its 100% because of your avatar.🤮🤮🤮
once you change it to a Ford product...you're build will miraculously be finished and delivered.

I had a 2018 Toyota Tacoma 4cyd 2wd. 6 speed transmission
I live on flatland Illinois. Going to Springfield and the truck shifted back and forth and could not make up it's mind. I traded it in on a plain Jane 19 ranger XL
It didn't even have auto door unlock. So I got my new 2019 XLT 4x4. Much better grade truck
Than the Taco. I would rather run
0-60 instead of run up trails There are no trails around our flat State.

We hated our 2017 Taco for some poorly designed features. :frown: Should we start a thread about them????

I love the Tacoma, but to get one with the same options my $36k Ranger has would have cost me $44k for the Tacoma.

The big test will be in 5yrs when the Rangers have 100k miles on them. Will they hold their value like the Toy? I've never been hurt when buying a Toyota.

i always had my chevy/gmc friends say ford sucked because of the resale value.
then i just asked them what their favorite beer was and would they pay more for it simply because of brand....and they usually shut up. they know beer is beer, and they knew i had a point and realised they got fleeced paying stupid high resale prices for something that really added no extra value other other than an emblem. a truck is a truck as beer is beer, and if you are dumb enough to pay more for garbage....

You're partially right.
Unfortunately your or my opinion doesn't carry shit compared to the market's opinion.
I feel Iphones are one of the most useless pieces of tech garbage to every be produced, unfortunately there's one billion people who think they are the greatest thing, so if I want one...... gonna have to pay the going rate.

Like my 19 Ford Ranger so much (my first Ford product) that we are in line for a 2 door new Bronco for the GF. Was on the way to buy a Honda Ridgeline but the Ranger won out in more safety areas and overall looks and use for me.

The resale value thing makes no sense to me, personally. I just don't understand buying a depreciating asset, no matter how much it may hold it's value compared to it's competition, with the goal of selling that asset a few years later just to purchase another depreciating asset. That is just a massive waste of money.

I have a 10 year old Mazda 3. I hope/expect to get another 10 out of it, at least. I have a 2019 Ranger. I hope/expect to still be driving it in 2039.

It makes sense if you're driving something that's so horrible that you can't wait to sell it. :D

I never buy a car for it's resale value I buy because I want it. Resale means nothing especially when I keep it way over 100k miles.

You got the right! We drive it, haul things in it, repair it and tow trailers for X years. If we are happy with it for that time and miles, resale value is not top of the list in importance.

Right on. in January of 2019 the computer in my Mazda went out and the repair/towing bill was like 1400 bucks. Several people I know suggested I sell/scrap the car and I said fuck that noise. I fixed it and it's rocking like always. A new car payment would have been at least 280 a month and, by now, I'd have paid much more than the repair bill.

I probably would of just put a crate motor in my 01 ranger if I hadn’t got my 19, gf has a Toyota 4 runner and there is no room in It, plus I had an 88 Toyota pick that was a bag of shit and after the second set of head gaskets I swore I would never get another

I’d probably buy a Pontiac Aztec over the gladiator....
