I guess I'm in the minority that was completely turned off by the ad? The ability to drift is simply not on my list of things I look for in a pickup. It's nothing but "feelings" advertising, with nothing of substance. I get that a lot of advertising is done like that, but I'm certainly not going to get excited about it.

I'm in the minority with you then.
First thing I thought of was "that driver is good at drifting...a skill I hope not to have to use in my truck"

There's no way the production 6g will drift that.

My 5g shuts down the fun at 1/4 of the angle he was getting. I've yet to try sand mode which supposedly disable RSC, though. Regardless, there's no way the next Ranger will have less nannys.

More than likely they will use the same GOAT modes as the Bronco. It wouldn't make sense to have two different terrain modes when they're both coming off the line together. I think we'll see a lot of similarities between them for cost cutting purposes too. It would be smart as then they can manage the line better/faster and order one batch from a supplier rather than multiple ones. With all the parts constraints this could help production.

Fore sure. That's pretty much the point of sharing the platform. There will definitely be a lot of shared tech/options. I just don't expect the next production Ranger to be able to get down like the video. Ranger Raptor? Perhaps.

The new Ranger will certainly be exciting, so is the new Maverick.

Unfortunately I love my 5G STX Supercab enough for the long run.
Same is true for my Transit Connect...And my Mustang.
My Pinto is sorta permanently on deck, so it will take a lot to sell me on a new truck for some years yet....

Hmmmm.. Maybe if they came out with a real street 2WD performance handling sport version strictly for pavement!
Nahhh, more likely an electric utility truck (HO-HUM)
Good thing I got some good ones when I did!

Depending on what the NextGen Ranger looks like, it's features, options and, of course price, I may be persuaded to sell my 2020 Lariat S/Cab 4x2 and order a nexgen, here's the actual miles on it...I've owned it for 19 months. Should be able to get a decent price on it.

turn off sport trac-or whatever it's called- by holding down the slip control buton for 5 seconds and the light flashes on on the dash. I can drift no problem but I drive like an ass sometimes

Indeed, Oahu traffic is horrendous, couple this with imbecilic women drivers of a certain asian background who can barely see over the steering wheel of their BMW or Mercedes SUV/Crossover and you have a recipe for disaster.

My daily driver is a decrepit looking '02 Honda CR-V, the Ranger stays at home, under a car cover. I fitted a circa 1970 Cadillac 4 note horn system onto the Honda, I don't use it often, but when I do it certainly gets the attention of errant drivers. The factory "weep-weep" horn just don't cut it...

$1050 rent 20 years ago? you DON'T want to know what that rent is now...

Ford sure is good at making videos. lol When I saw the first one for the Bronco I was hooked! Now with all the delays and problems they're having with the hart tops I'll be lucky to see mine two years after placing my order. Not 100% of the problems were covid and parts constraints either so there's plenty to blame on Ford for this mess. I guess I'll get more excited when they're actually produced and on dealers lots.

Not trying to be a downer here but this whole Bronco launch has been a disaster. It's not their first one either, the Explorer was a disaster too and that was PRE-covid. I know these are pre-production but I sure hope they're not trying to make this look like a baby F150. :puke:
Very cool video, and the truck looks great. I was wondering where the video was filmed until the kangaroo hopped across the road! And yeah, Ford is good at making these. I wanted a Ranger from the first time I saw the video where they put one up on a hill somewhere, crank the guitars, and then the truck flashes all of the possible trims and models, sort of like on the Transformer movies! After that, all I needed to do was get in one in the dealer's showroom to make sure I could sit in the driver's seat and not bump the roof!
