My eye opener was when I shifted into neutral from 50mph to a stop. Smooth as silk and it is what I would expect it to be like in gear. I have a 2013 Edge and it smooth as silk in gear. The Ranger is horrible with this. It really does ruin my purchasing experience.I know this sounds scary but I'm having the same problem and I think my truck stops better after decent acceleration (turbo does some good work). Like it skips more on the way down and gets to first faster . That or I might just be slowing down fast enough to get to 1st before my complete stop anticipating the strange stop.
