um...this is MY opinion...but should someone have told Ford that copying styling cues from the first gen Colorado might be a bad idea? I know there are only a few but that was the first thing I thought when I saw it. Also sticking with the front clip its a bit too butch to me...like its compensating for its smaller size. I'm guessing that its the only way they could get away with using as many underpinnings as possible from the Bronco Sport (which also looks butch but carries it better).

Just my opinion. :)

I like it. It looks like its targeted to the older Ranger crowd. The owners that are still driving their 1990 Ranger because there is no replacing a small pickup.

I'm just confused; why isn't it called the "ranger sport"? Or maybe the ranger should be the "f150 sport", and this could be the "f150 sport mini"? Ford should pick a naming convention and then stick to it!

Ford is going to sell a BAJILLION of these things. Holy crap.
Agreed, this would be a lot better than a small SUV, which are obviously very popular. Unlike most trucks, this would even be a good commuter vehicle.

Not too bad. Don't think it's enough for me to give up my Ranger, though.
I definitely don’t think this was meant to convince us to switch from our rangers.

this is a city truck, first truck, shit it’s a Honda Civic competitor. This things gonna be seriously appealing to a lot of people I think.

This is a game changer type vehicle, nearly 40mpg out of the hybrid with seating for 5 and a bed to carry stuff .. you could cross shop and Honda Civic and just about any other entry level car with the 20k starting price .. with as many bronco sports I see on the road they’ll be 4 times as many of these sold

Don't like the front end but I love what Ford is doing and the direction they're taking the company. Hopefully some of these features will transfer over to the new Ranger. The maverick would be a great commuter truck or DD.

A little more towing capacity from the hybrid would have been nice.
Subaru Outback (non hybrid) but still a 2.5L naturally aspirated 4 cyl. with a CVT tows 2700lbs.
