LOL... So to sum up 9 pages of wants/needs: what we (me to) want is Ford Explorer Limited amenities available in the Ranger... a "Ranger Lariat Limited" or "Ranger King Ranch" ... plus a diesel option.

I know how true this is. While waiting for 2019 Ranger FX4 to be prep-ed (added a bunch of bells and whistles) the dealer gave me a 2020 Explorer Limited to drive... took 2 weeks for the Ranger work to get done (waiting for parts mostly)... Then I took delivery of the Ranger... kind of a let down, amenities wise... same "basic" amenities but many just more manual (tilt steering wheel, manual power fold outside mirrors, power seats except back rest is manually adjusted, heated seats but not heated steering wheel, etc.). It's so easy to get spoiled.

My wishes for an updated Gen5 or new G6 Ranger:
- V6 engine option and a V8 option
- Increased fuel tank size
- Upgraded audio and infotainment system in all models
- Power adjusted seating
- MPGs that are as advertised
- A true shark fin antenna

Honestly, I don't really need anything else on any of my cars. Each one I have bought has more 'stuff' than the last and not always by choice. That said, something I haven't seen mentioned yet are flip out windows on the half doors on the Super Cab. Something like the rear windows on a '05 Chrysler T&C, or side windows on old VW Bus. That would be a nice feature.

Confirmed: The fuel door does not lock on my XLT regardless of the status of the central locking system. Guess it's only the Lariat trim.

I have a Lariat and my fuel door doesn't lock when the doors are locked. I must have missed the post in here but is it supposed to?

Hi Dave,

Just checked due to a puzzlement on this statement. Used the central locking system...fuel door remained unlocked... Owner's manual does not indicate the fuel door locks, but with the terrible errors in the manual I do not trust... A look see from below did not show any wires heading toward the fuel door so I doubt I have this feature if it exists at all...Maybe on 2020 as my Lariat is a 2019...

Puzzled!

Fuel door does not lock. Fuel is kept safe and uncontaminated by the magic no-cap filler tube. Unless some blighter has access to the secret funnel under the back seat. :frown:

Hi Phil,

Thanks for checking I was going to give it a better look tomorrow. You're right it could be an added feature for the 2020's but I've never had a problem with any of my truck not having a locking fuel door or being cap-less.:)

That's interesting, the Aus spec rangers have always had this option, the fuel flap is locked when the car is locked. You can only push to open it with the central locking unlocked.
Someone posted on the last page that the door locked on their Lariat. :question:
Hi Jason I just went back and found the post you were talking about. It looks like it was the Aussie ranger that has the locking fuel door. :)

But then this was posted...
You're right...Now I'm confused. :crazy:
I'm starting to doubt myself now

I'll check again tomorrow... my wife took my truck to work tonight (while she got a new car this weekend, go figure :giggle:).. I truly hope I'm not wrong though, there's far too many fuel thieves on this island (they go as far as drilling holes in the tanks).

I just checked again (3rd time) and locking the doors does not lock the fuel door on mine. I'm not crazy my mother had me tested! :crazy: :giggle:
