    I don’t fit in the other midsized trucks and I’m keeping my fingers crossed I fit in the Ranger. I can’t find any interior dimension specs. I can’t wait to sit in one.

    going to be smaller interior dimensions than the GM twins and narrower than the ridgeline. I do think the Jeep Scrambler truck is going to be the largest mid-size if you if you use the new JT interior dimensions.

    I have the JL Unlimited and it's noticeably smaller than the outgoing JK model. I'm 6'3" and I find the JL to be somewhat uncomfortable. My left knee is against the door panel, my right knee rests on the transfer case shifter, my head is a couple of inches from the "sport bar" structure, and the transmission hump interferes with space to rest my feet while the cruise control is on. They shaved nearly 2 inches off the hip and shoulder room in this model. I'm not sure why they made it smaller. It needed to get bigger.

    I am 6'1" and I don't typically have any issues with any of the midsize trucks. I do have to change the seat settings quite a bit on some vehicles. Usually the seats have to be as low and nearly as far back as they will go.

    Ranger seats are height adjustable (up/down). Tacoma seats aren't.

    The specs are out and look favorable for my height. Now, I just gotta sit in one.

    I'm 6'5" and cramped in most vehicles except for full size trucks and SUVs. I am hoping the Ranger is "full size" inside.

    I’m a tad over 6’ 3” and 200lbs. I’m not concerned about the headroom, because even with a normal torso/leg ratio I’m not sitting as high as someone who is 6’3” and 250lbs (because around 10lbs of that extra weight is in their butt). As for leg room, I’ll let you know when I get mine at the end of December. I think I’ll be plenty comfortable but it’ll probably come at the expense of legroom behind me (which is pretty standard for any vehicle I drive).

    Drove a couple today. I can't talk about performance, ride etc. I can say I'm 6'2" and both head and legroom were ample.

    How'd the back seat feel? Think a 6 footer could do 4 hours or so?

    I am 5'11 and my wife is 5'2. I have a 7 month old son who is in a rear facing car seat. Do you think there is enough room for a car seat in the back of the crew cab with someone in the front seat? In my Fiesta, the car seat is pressed up against the back of the front seat with the seat all the way up to the dashboard.

    Looks like the Fiesta rear legroom is 31.2”. And the Ranger SuperCrew has 34.5”.

    Does anyone know how Ford calculates legroom, specifically rear legroom? Is it calculated with the front seats all the way back, middle, or all the way forward?

    Good question, industry standard by reviewing magazines is too move front seat all the way back and then measure both.
