Ford Cancels Sale of Ranger

Ford Cancels Sale of Ranger in U.S.


Sep 20, 2010

Quote:
Pickup truck fans take note: the Ford Ranger will continue on… just not in the United States.

Autoblog reports: “The oft-neglected baby pickup from the Blue Oval is set to end production at its Twin Cities Assembly Plant in Minnesota next year, thereby kicking Dearborn out of the segment for the first time in nearly 30 years. The rest of the world won't be without a Ranger, though.”

Why? Ford tells Autoblog that it’s because the Ranger’s platform is too similar to that of the F-150. Having both models in the U.S. lineup is redundant. “Basically Ford feels that the F-150 lineup is strong enough and the Ranger would only eat up sales of its best-selling model,” explains egmCarTech.

According to PickupTrucks.com, “Production of the U.S. Ranger is scheduled to end in 2011. The new Ranger, code named T6, will be built on a single, globally shared platform that's been designed in Australia.”
