I now have 5,600 miles on my 2022 Ford Ranger Tremor. Here in Tennessee, it has been raining for the past 6 or 7 days straight where I live. I had to take my truck out a few times to pick up things and the Ranger was a mess. Black trucks love to show off dirt and mud, or at least mine does. On the way back from a drive out of town today, it actually stopped raining when I got back into town. I shot over to the self-service spray car wash and washed it. Brought it home and dried it off and it started raining again. Quickly backed it in the garage and dried it off again. I went out tonight and swept out the inside, cleaned the mats, and cleaned the wheels too. Tell you what, it looks pretty darn sweet. It has been flawless and probably one of the nicest trucks I have had. (And I have had some pretty nice newer F-150's too). I have a 3 car garage and the one car garage door is too small for an F-150, however I can squeeze the Ranger inside perfectly.

PERFECT truck for me and I still smile when I look at it!

I hope that most of you are as happy with your Ranger as I am, with mine!

Did I mention I love this truck :question: :clap: :clap::like::like:

I've had over a dozen trucks myself and like you Phil this is my favorite. I think it's the perfect size (it fits in the garage) and is very easy to get around in compared to the size of the F150's now. I've got more compliments (of course thanks to the Graphene :giggle: ) than any other truck too. I don't get attached to vehicles but I'll be sad when the day comes to get rid of it. But hopefully the next Gen Ranger will have a PHEV version out quickly and it'll be my new love.:inlove:

Hello fellow Tennessean! I am also enjoying my '19 Ranger Lariat 4x4. It does exactly what I bought it to do. I love the F-150, but just don't have a need for one. You are correct about the Tennessee rain of late! After a somewhat dry Fall season earlier, we are making up for the shortfall. Mine lives in a garage as well, at home as well as at the office. My truck is white, not my favorite color, as I prefer black. But the deal was good enough I have learned to live with white. Plus, tinting out the windows actually makes the truck look nice!

I’m coming up on one year and I’m at about 8200 miles. Still loving it, and just earlier today while parked near a new Frontier, current gen Tacoma, and Ridgeline, I still think the 5g Ranger looks better.

Almost 3 years and I still love it.

And yeah, I still look back at it.

I totally agree with you, I really love my ‘22 SCAB. At 71 I’ve owned a number of vehicles that I really enjoyed owning, but this has to be my favorite. And by the way, it has been pretty wet here in North Georgia too. Reluctant to complain too much, it might turn to ice.

Ok, I'll go ahead and admit it... I don't even have my new truck yet and I love it!

:like: Well, it's the truth.

Seats really ruining my back but otherwise love my ranger as well.
I put a throw pillow between the seat and seat back and that fixed it for me.
Red, i suppose you've tried everything, but I have back problems stemming from a motorcycle crash 38 years ago, and my STX (pkg includes XLT cloth seats) is one of the most comfortable vehicles I've owned. I buy Ford products exclusively because the overall design is have the seats higher off the floor before any adjustments. Every Ford I've had, except for my '99 Cougar, have been this way. Basically I like to have my legs extended shoulders relaxed, and weight on my lower spine reduced. I'm about 5'9" and I have the seat elevated about 3/4 up its travel and back to the second to last detent, the lumbar punched out a little, and the seat back pert'near vertical. I pull the steering wheel back so I can rest my right elbow on the armrest "finger," and have it lowered to where the top of the gauges are still visible.
That's my default configuration, and I vary it time to time on long trips.
Works for me.

Met our crew at a brewery yesterday for a couple of beers and some munchies. My SIL had snagged a parking place right out front. Where I was sitting I was looking straight at his Tremor. I spent a large chunk of our time there mentally imagining the Tremor I was looking at was blue... ?:dance:

Sigh. Will my blue ride ever get here? :computerrage:
