    Most people want the torque of a turbo 4banger not the gutlessness of a V6. They also cost as much as a Tacoma or a decently loaded half ton.

    I bought a pro4x. I like mine but I do wish they had a bit more getupandgo like the turbo trucks have. They have really potent but delayed power bc of the 9 speed trans.

      >For the North American market, the Ranger is produced with a single powertrain: a 2.3-liter EcoBoost inline-four paired with 10-speed 10R80 automatic transmission.[32][33] For increased fuel economy, the engine includes direct fuel injection, four valves per cylinder, and a twin-scroll turbocharger

          The 2.7 Ecoboost is coming as an option for regular Rangers later this year, and the Raptor has the 3.0.

          Nobody buys normal Rangers. I don't know why they would bother with a Raptor version in North America.

          Can someone explain to me why anyone would buy an extended cab midsize when you could instead get a regular cab, short bed F150? Yes, Ford is still making these. Its size and footprint put it very firmly into the "modern midsize" category. Nobody seems to know you can order it.

          An F150 configured this way has:
          >shorter wheelbase
          >shorter overall length
          >tighter turning circle
          >more bed space
          >more towing
          >more payload
          >more power
          etc.

          The only disadvantage is that it's marginally wider, but the wheelbase and turning circle improvements are more important when it comes to actual driving and ease of use. And I'd argue that with the bench seat down, the F150 actually seats three people more comfortably than the useless rear seats in an extended cab truck do.

          The price is within a couple thousand bucks and you get a 400hp V8.

          Why are these so rare, despite midsize popularity?

          It's a pretty stupid comparison. Regular cabs are fricking horrible. If you make it extended vs extended cab the half ton is bigger albeit not by much. RCSB's are good if you plan on turning the thing into a no prep drag truck but that's about it.

      The back seats suck as seats, but they make a decent "trunk" to put stuff in, tools or groceries or whatever else you don't want to put in the bed. Single cab half tons are also way more limited on options and are a lot more expensive than an extended or even crew cab midsize - a basic XL 4x4 single cab F150 costs the same as a loaded Ranger XLT FX4 and you're not gonna get much of a discount either given that you're gonna have to special order it too.

      It was the second best-selling midsize (obviously behind the Tacoma) for most of the last gen's years on the market, and outsold 3/4ths of other vehicles on the market. Nowhere near F-150 numbers but still plenty to make it worthwhile for Ford.

      This same argument applies to midsize vs full-size. If you want less fancy stuff, you can get a full size crew cab for almost the same as a higher trim mid size crew cab. Full size is a hell of a lot more useful.

      You could ask the same of why the Titan ended up as a sales loser despite being pretty solid (Diesel model excepted).

      One of the big reasons I'm thinking of getting a WK2 is because I have 140k on my Challenger and the Pentastar has been rock solid.

      I'd get a Gladiator but I drive a lot of highway miles and I know the wind noise would bug the absolute shit out of me.

    It's not an afterthought, its the best selling midsize truck now. The tacoma having supply issues, shitty performance, shitty fuel economy and an eye watering price will do that
