Chrysler will be doing just that. The Dakota is getting a reboot but will be down market from the JT.I agree. The next-gen ranger is due out next year. I don't know if the mid-size truck market can support 2 vehicles from the same manufacturer?
I think that the half cab on a two door would be totally stud.
This concept was the one that made me rethink my strict "No Fiat's" rule. Fortunately FCA didn't test me.Can we all just admit that this proportionally just looks right?
With the 4 door pickup, you end up with a vehicle too long to be a great offroader. Turning radius, breakover, and departure angles suffer. Jeep is also learning that they are kinda switching Wrangler owners into gladiator buyers. Not gaining a lot of new buyers for the truck.
My suggestion would be to totally redo the ranger and drop this bronco truck. The current ranger was completely underwhelming to me. One engine choice, large cabin and tiny bed. The bed rails are also so tall you can't reach into the truck. The front end is weak and feminine looking to me. The ranger could be so much more, and I'm betting next generation will be way better.
ThisYeah, I'm to a point in my life that I don't need or want a 4 door. My kids are grown and gone, and when they are home, there's too many of us counting grandkids to ride in one vehicle anyway. A 2 door looks great and has more bed space.
