    I got a lot of info here and wanted to say thanks. The Sport Trac is gone and I now have a 2017 Chevy Colorado Z71 Crew Cab. I'm going to miss that large power back window but wanted a new vehicle and didn't like the look of the Ranger that's supposed to be coming out. Thanks, Tim

    Good luck with the Colorado.



    Interesting that you don't like the look of the new Ranger since no one has actually seen the 2019 truck yet. Ford has already said the US version will have different styling from the Ranger sold elsewhere.

    I don't care what the new Ranger looks like. I had a 30 minute discussion with a designer of the new Ranger. He asked me some detailed questions about what I liked about the Sport Trac and what I'd like to see in the new Ranger. I said I'd HAVE to have a power rear window and hard tonneau cover. He said those will be options on the new Ranger. He also said a bed extender will be available. It sounds like it WILL NOT be at all like the econobox that the old Ranger was. He said it'll have most of the features as the Edge or Explorer, except as a 4-door midsize pickup.

    I've been eyeballing the Colorado/Canyon, but $35,000???



    I know they come cheaper, but I want crew cab 4x4 for my next truck.

    I hope they got away from that anemic 5cyl.

    Mark, just curious but were you disappointed with what the designer told you? It sounds like it will meet your requirements...:grin:



    BTW, did you happen to ask him what engines the Ranger will be available with? I'm hoping for the 2.7L EcoBoost V6.



    Eddie, I assume you are referring to the previous gen Colorado? Not that I am defending it but the new one comes standard with a 2.5L in-line 4 cyl or as options either a 3.6L gas V6 or a 2.8L in-line diesel 4 cyl, I think.
